    Wifi is kind of shit and prob will get worse so may slow down then recap.
    Spoiler, as is often the case, P wins more on slots than I lose on tables so night 1 is a good slow start. No played Circa / One so far. Got a regular Mountain View room so less pressure on that also. Love this side of Circa.. Very quiet.

    DTG had craps running at $5 min on a Sat night :love::D:thumbsup:, the place was crawling with the Punk Rock Bowling crowd. :headbang::popcorn:
    All of them were so cleancut and well mannered, not at all like the Haight street gutter punks I used to live near.
    There were also super cute grown up punk parents w. their little punk kids..

    The table was rolling well, I was getting pretty hot, then some guy shows up with the confused arguing with the dealer about bets bit and cooled us. I took a break, grabbed a beer from the bar, then decided to split and not go back in. also think that's buddy newb that is asking questions and will definitely say the word I don't want to hear. and there was another newb on my other side also hovering and trying to learn what this wacky game is... Guy in the red shirt was a classic East Coast old timer that knew the score and talked like Dennis Farina. We were hitting it off for a minute. Man that table was warming up good...

    Love downtown for the ability to take a short walk and hit the next spot..

    just for you, @Ty, a live report, 9:18 pm
    Lots of people Buying drinks. Maybe 1 besides me playing. only one $10 craps table is open, IMO sacrilege.


    Came from GG, had to run away from the loudness, love the chill vibe here, and at Cal still. So comfortable.

    started alone at a $15 GG craps table, went down, rolled myself back, then it was suddenly me and an entire family of craps shooters filling the entire table, great energy, lots of cheering and yelling.

    "Come on, Craigy!" was shouted a lot during Craigs hot roll. Of course I joined in.

    A big shout out and much love to my new craps Corpus Christie, TX Fam, hope we meet again tonight.

    thought they were flying out immediately, they meant zip line fly, though they fly home tomorrow. E2F64F95-2C59-4CAC-BD3F-D816DF3873F6.jpeg


    They all played the same, hammering hard ways, shooting hard and fast, dice often flying off the table, and crushing the absolute hell of of hard 10s.
    This looks like a hard 6 payout in progress, might even have hit mine on the parlay.

    The charming young lady next to me hit her $50 hard 10 right when she most needed it. Probably was Craigy rolling.

    Possible best, at least in top 2 of absolute best craps experiences ever.
    Hit at least 1, if not 2 alls, no all alls.

    Back to back to the MFing BACK:
    weird message about Bonus Eligibilty I just noticed, but,
    Scratcher values: $ 1, 2, 3.
    I think MSS missed us. the feeling is mutual.

    DO WE WANT TO GO FASTER?!?!!!

    Dropped in to try and chase that Royal too,
    Almost deja Vu, as the progressive edges to $1199,
    P’s second chance, same suit,
    935CBA6C-D282-45AB-96BE-AD3B82A14BA6.jpeg
    Same result :(.

    I got a little piece of the action though,

    the Cal floor was poppin’, and buzzing with crowds and energy I can’t even remember seeing before. you could feel how thrilled everyone was to back.

    I think a lot of them had booked for Golden arm, last night there was a guy @ MSS craps table saying you couldn’t get an airline refund, he had cancelled, then changed his mind and rebooked.

    Thanks for the pics.
    Looked like the craps tables at the Cal were busy.

    “There’s hope yet”
    “The death of low limit DT Craps has been greatly exaggerated”


    Sat afternoon/ eve sitrep goes here.

    Circa mostly $25, maybe a $15, didn’t look too hard. Think last night played a $15.

    GOlden Nugget had around 8 tables, most $15, a $25, and even saw a $10 minimum.

    GG tables were $15 and $10, but both hit $15 by the time I could get on, also of note the ONLY table I found that allows smoking at the table.
    Correction, Circa & 4Q also allow smoking at the table

    IIRC cal was $15,

    MSS was a shocking and very enjoyable $5, still 20x odds.

    DTG was also $5, great friendly crew.
    told me it would go to 10 for prime time, then be 5 tomorrow day.

    This was around Fri/Sat early evening through nights. I never expected to see $5 back so soon, let alone on the weekends.
    There’s hope yet.

    :eek:She only gave me a hundy as my cut, can you believe that? :cry:
    but she did buy me lunch, so... :love::licklips:
    oh wait, I bought lunch.. with points.. she probably earned on slots.
    it all ends up the same place anyways..:D

    At least I got on the board, but she’s killing it, slots too.

    I was tempted, but not the move when I looked it up.

    It’s the replacement of the SKX line, a 5 model. not a "true" diver- only 100 m depth resistance.

    I noticed the 5 on the dial just now. I've actually had my eye on the 5 line for awhile, just can't decide between green, blue, or orange faced dial. My bankroll has been taking a hit since I discovered watch collecting. Still going to power through and take a trip in November though. :)
