Pumped for this!
Live long and prosper....also take the man for as much as you can.
If you’re at the Cromwell bar T-Sat 7am-4pm, Angelina is awesome and always takes care of peeps!
Still in at the break, made the final table of a 22 entry tournament. Two awesome hands. First I was to right of dealer and I had 9/10 spades. Flop has an 8 of spades and red seven. My opponent lands two pair and bets big and I call. Turn is 4 of spades so I have a million outs. Same thing. Then river is a 6 and I take him out to become chip leader by far. Later on I call a bit bet preflop and out comes 8/10/J on the flop. I had KK in the big blind just before the break but everyone wanted to get away from the table for a second so no one called.
I am having a blast, but I am EXHAUSTED! I’ve been playing loosely knowing a nice cool room awaits me next door at Cromwell. If I manage to cash fantastic. If not means bedtime sooner. Let’s me play loose and easy!
Got knocked out in 7th place with KK vs A10, he paired his A. I was totally content and walked back to Cromwell. Already showered and gotten ready to pass out and it’s just after 11. I usually get in town around 10 PM and go till 4 AM or so. I was hitting the strip today by about 11 AM so this was a fun, full, long first day in town. And long travel day. I am tired!!! Going to let myself sleep in as late as I want. Parents will be in sometime in the afternoon. About to doze off and recharge the batteries for tomorrow! Good night!
Good morning Las Vegas!!!
slept 10 hours and feel amazing. Want to let everyone know there’s $5 UTH and $5 Free Bet BJ at Cromwell now at 9:40 AM. Maybe this is the time to play tables!
Parents are getting close so I’m headed north to Venetian going to get breakfast on the way!
$5 table games are awesome
Also want to note the black out shades at Cromwell we’re amazing!!!
Maybe my favorite golden arch in the world
Waiting for my parents!
Amazing that 80 years ago there was a barren desert here!
Greeted my parents as they came in and it was great to see them. We got their bags taken care of and then my dad went to the airport to drop off the rental car. I was waiting in line to check in with my mom catching up and she said you should to have fun, don’t spend your vacation waiting in line. Isn’t she great!
Now headed back down the strip in search of table game action then going to finally head to the other side of the strip to Caesars and more!
Awesome report so far! Thanks for sharing. Especially love the pics of your Cromwell suite, as well as the weed discussion. Have you caught any flack about vaping on the strip?
Was enjoying free bet blackjack at Caesars but then an obviously sick dealer came in sniffling and coughing like crazy. Colored up. Even if he was vaccinated, who the hell wants a cold? This bugged me before Covid and frankly bugs me a bit more afterwards. Casinos shouldn’t be putting sick folks to deal with customers or anyone. Staying in caesars to play something else!
Been having some bad luck at Caesars though not too awful, down about $300 on the day but it’s still before noon so gotta pace myself. I ate a late breakfast so not very hungry for lunch but I think I will venture around for lunch. I’m going to head south to Bellagio and maybe south from there and see what’s going on!
Glad this is back open!
I’ve always been kinda a transportation geek. My favorite rides at Disney were the monorail and the people mover. So pretty cool for my inner kid to have the front car of the tram all to myself! Now time to explore somewhere I haven’t spent a lot of time at since it was Monte Carlo!
Biggest slot win of the trip so far first spin at Park MGM! $72. I’ll take it!
Sitting at the main bar at Eataly enjoying a Peroni and awaiting a pasta. I love that you can sit at the main bar and order from a lot of the eateries. If this is as good as I anticipate this will be a perfect regular lunch spot here in Vegas! If I didn’t see the slots to my right and the escalators and glass facades out the window to my left, I could easily be convinced I’m in Milan. Great atmosphere.
