    Holy shit, is that on the redraw? I played that game a shitload (for me anyway) at CET bars (especially TAG) before they took it away, as it was the best game offered. I never hit 4 Aces on it. And you get it on the redraw??? Lol Very jealous. Great pull! And very nice comeback!

    Day 8 continued

    Got the twins down for naps and I was off to play my deuces Wild table game until Andiamos. Dinner was great as usual. I believe SofSF already posted photos. Had a great meal and two bottles of wine.

    After dinner I played until after 2 am. Which I regretted when the twins were up before six. 9:30 limo pick up to go back to Bally’s and once again there was goose and cranberry for breakfast.

    Day 9

    Early limo back to Bally’s and stayed in the room until nap time. The beauty of having a microwave and frig is the ability to eat some of those great leftovers for lunch.

    I posted earlier but the afternoon was spent at Sully’s playing and chatting with PO and other players. It was a great afternoon. Since SofSF and wife were leaving on a late flight we were able to get to gather for one last great meal. I believe SofSF already post photos of all the good stuff we had

    After they departed I played to hit my target for the day and then switched to Miss Stud for a bit. Up in the room before midnight

    Today was a huge sigh of relief as I had a couple great jackpots and was able to pay my markers with cash.

    Day 10

    In the plane home. Hard to believe the trip was so long as it seems to have flown by

    Soccer was a surprise losing ever bet I made. Also difficult with the match times and having the twins. Weren’t able to sit at bars play VP and watch this trip

    Twins did exceptional only a couple tantrums. Mrs SF was a real champ staying with the kids while I played. She did get a massage and a couple facials so she was happy

    Great to see the family and have time to hang out

    Tried a few new things: a Red Rock Canyon, Peppermil, Blueberry Hill Restaurant, El Buen Tacos, Battista hole in the Wall and Casa di Amore

    Thanks to all for posting on the board so we knew about them

    Finally thanks to all who have read all the way to the end

    Until next time

    Ha, yes the cigar was already good but the hits made it and the whole trip better. I actually bought a box of them and like so well I might get another.

    Yes it was a last minute switch as I was at the counter betting. Their play, number of goals, goal differential and odds on the bet caused me to go with the underdog. I think France was -120 or -140 when I made the bet.

    It is each time but lesson learned, don't bring small kiddos if you hope to watch much. They were great and so was the trip but I missed so much of the matches

    Room was really great as the kids got the run of the place. Toys everywhere, dropping crumbs all over the new carpet. I tipped the cleaning ladies very well as they had to put up with us and they were extremely nice.

    We got rid of the adjoining room after my older son left as it counts against my chances of getting back end comps

    I know, my bad. I try to play bonus over JOB but sometimes I hit it without thinking. Thanks to you and Tring for keeping me on the right path about that one.
