    Took a ramble around Fremont Street and Container Park and watched the canopy show.

    Now back at QQQQ, where I turned $60 in FP into $116.25, thanks to:

    Mom is tipsy. I suggested more food. She insisted on more Pizza Rock. She wouldn’t hear of anything else. So it’s round two of:

    Meatballs

    Pizza - this time Tony’s Two Time.

    At least she’s a happy drunk who just wants MORE MEATBALLS!

    Back in the room with a couple ABC store purchased beverages listening to the band and people watching out our window.

    Ended up putting ~$5,500 through the VP machines. I estimate that’s $4,000 - $4,500 mine and $1,000 - $1,500 mom’s. I can see where if you have two serious gamblers, the comps can add up quickly.

    I finished up $61.25 for the day. Mom is down $100. Mom has decided that she is a fan of 4OAKs and is morally opposed to throwing away aces despite math. She also is of the opinion that her money lasts way longer playing VP than playing slots.

    VP porn and near misses from the afternoon/evening. (Slanted pics are mom’s - she’s quite proud).

    I think I may check out Plaza tomorrow. But it’s going to be a game time decision between Plaza and the D.

    Mom and I went to Therapy for lunch. I failed at pics. She had the lunch special - half a French dip, fries, and iced tea for $9.50. I had Mac and cheese. The French dip was amazing. The mac- we’ll go to Therapy but skip the mac.

    Then down to Plaza. Only out through about $250 and was down $30.

    Mom’s now in an uber to the airport and I’m back at the Plaza sports book bar to really kick off the day. Hoping for more premium hands to post.

    Stiegl Radler

    The comp drafts come in a small cup. That’s a significant point against the Plaza compared to MSS/El Cortez.

    But seems to be a decent pay table on the VP....I think.

    they have full pay Boner Deluxe and JoB there

    Yeah, it's plastic, but Stiegl Radler is an expensive draft beer to serve.

    I do really like the Radler and don’t really have any clue about the price point, but I do miss having a glass pint glass.

    9/6 JOB - so it’s up there with the best of downtown bar tops.

    Thanks Tring. I always wonder about these darn pay tables. I can never remember them all. Although on my last few trips I stayed at Venetian and Sheldons pay tables are all crap so it didnt matter!!!!

    Yeah, when you're playing there it doesn't matter as much. But there is still always a game that's the "least crappy". At the sportsbook bar for example, a rarely played game (6/5 Super Double Bonus) is over a percent better than all the other choices at the bar and over 2% better on many choices!

    In plaza's case 9/6 Bonus Deluxe is only 0.1% better than 9/6 JoB, no big deal.

    Thanks Tring! Since we will be staying there many times this year, I will commit that to memory. 6/5 Super Double Bonus.

    Sorry Eliza.....back to the show.

    Afternoon session was meh. Down $200 and only played through $1,950. Some premium hands, but few full houses, flushes, and other hands to keep it going.

    VP porn and near misses:
