    Guess which BJ game I played that blanked me 4 times. No cats.
    The silver and gold markings are worn out on this Lucky Cat BJ dice at 4Q, looked like a lot of blanks, were a lot of blanks, best was 2 cats for 3:2 payout on bet..
    (the cat dice get shaken when dealer busts, 3 matching cats pay 10-1)

    Some side excitement during the game, the guy to the right of me was watching that Packers/49ers game, (there was a perfectly positioned TV right at that table), and had them as the fourth leg of a four way parlay, other 3 had won, an exciting last 3 minutes as we were playing he was distracted from the cards, to say the least, I started watching too, the whole table got a little distracted, at the exciting conclusion -
    he had gotten felted and left the table expecting the Packers to lose, I yelled at him from across the casino,"Woooooo!!! Yeah, Buddy!" He was pretty excited too.



    Take that, Golden gate! first parlayed hard way, the puppy paw hard 10. Also can smoke at the table (I do so considerately, back up and blow smoke up), and first table I noticed paying 10 for 1 vs 10 to 1 (Like Cal, GG, MSS)

    A recurring theme at all the craps tables I were at were one young experienced Craps player with two buddy side kicks, the seasoned one being the professor and hype man. They were on the Left,

    Shout out to "Big Dog", didn't have to tell him twice to hit the wall, he went on a hot one.
    I kind of love the drunken energy of that 4Q craps table, most people kind of know what they're doing, and they're there to have a good time.

    Another 3 formed organically to my right, a corner guy quietly dont'ing taught the two other guys between us the ways of the don't.
    Up until then they were doing extremely well at surviving right at the edge of being felted by several good rolls, one mine.
    They probably got to 6x original bankroll.
    Then they went dark side and got felted in about 3 rolls. shout out to Keyshaun, his buddy was his teacher, they should have kept it right and in house.
    The shooter on that was "shrooms", a guy in a tie die mushroom shirt that knocked out a 10 then 2 4s pretty easily, after I congratulated my side on catching good don't #s.
    It was all friendly and fun, the original dont'er was doing fine, (at first) waiting out long rolls of 6 & 8 all day.
    It was funny how everyone gave everyone nicknames, at that table there was also, named by outfit, "Cowboys", and "Hilfiger". Loved it.. I don't think I got one, but I was wearing my new Hawaii Craps shooter "any pair, I don't care" shirt so I think they knew I meant business.

    A wins a win, however small, even better when it's a incredible comeback, and you rolled it yourself.

    Oh and another reason downtown rooms were so hard to find this weekend, punk rock bowling is going on. Fun crowd to watch. Really heavy presence in DTG.

    One HI guy was shooting hot, E5D2BC7B-CDCD-4EBB-8FA8-2CA547474CD2.jpeg

    Cocktail Waitress was nowhere to be found, after what felt like an hour, I ran and bought my 3 new Minnesota buddies beers, (Hot shooter didn't want a drink), bartender was cool and comped it.
    I had mentioned to him, "I think your waitresses went on strike.."
    that's classy AF, every dollar (except for tip wad) I had on me was on the table, I was going to charge it to the room. $10 tip.

    Then,
    Another case of a red hot shooter not hitting the wall with both dice a few times and getting shut out of his roll, and not allowed to roll for the night. It's happened to me so I was semi-interrogating the box man or pit boss that made the call, at first he said he was perma banned- like never allowed to roll at a One property ever again, then he eased up and said it was just for the night, then he said something about the guy being disrespecful to female staff, which I never witnessed in the hour or whatever we were there.. He was just rolling dice and talking to his GF as far as I saw... W/E, Their house, their rules, I took everything I could down and tried, but failed to hit his 4 . Then the whole table left in protest. previously, he was on fire for his first two rolls, our whole side of the table passed it back to him. Shout out to my 3 Minnesota partners, a recurring theme this trip was one guy that knows how to gamble with 2 buddies he's trying to teach, as long as they try to listen and learn, it's a beautiful thing, this will be the next generation, hopefully we can teach them craps ettiquete ("pull your hands back, bro") and not to play shitty games they're trying to foist on newbs, I'll have to fill in the 4Q story where it belongs..
    A5DE38B4-6BC6-47CF-91E3-65965DF3974B.jpeg

    Before all that, threw 25 odds on for our hot shooter as his stack was petering out, on a 4, and he hit. Went through maybe 3 shifts of dealers, most were great, a few were green, two were somewhat terrible.

    made the terrible faux pas of mistaking a Scot for an Irishman, but impressed him by identifying in a blind taste the difference between mac 12 and 15, we squashed our beef, after all he was just taking the piss out of me.

    tried to try @Packer Roulette system on a bubble Roulette machine, had some issues getting bets right, I think I goofed the beginning of the hundy in by timing out all the hedges and starting at 5 instead of 10,
    intoVegasSept24-28- 497.JPG
    then got ground down,
    intoVegasSept24-28- 501.JPG intoVegasSept24-28- 508.JPG
    got $10 from the bonus game, a wheel spins if it lands in a randomly selected bonus number.
    That side bet's not bad, now I know why they're always whooping it up over at that one at South Point.. You get a shot at those Mega/Major/Mini playouts..

    tried some hail mary trip date & P's #s and managed to get out doubled up..
    from 0 + that $10 jackpot payout. I was tired as hell and flabbergasted,
    intoVegasSept24-28- 512.JPG
    looking back at the pics it was 4 in a row. Next time, I'll press. harder.. did the 1 to 2 press at least.

    Thanks, I believe it helped.. Wish you were there, but trust me, I hit all those craps tables hard enough (in time, not necessarily $$) for two.
    Damn shame you couldn't be there, pressing up into the great rolls.
    Maybe next scheduled Golden Arm when it happens.

    As it was, there were plenty of Hawaiians that still came out, as I did, because they had already booked it, Hot shooter at Circa was one.

    also, hey, look who I ran into!

    Saw Mr. Moneyshot at the meetup, again while eating at MSC, then later around the Cal craps tables, but never got to throw with him, that was the Sun night Cal craps was packed.
    I wrote about it before, they really like to run a fast paced game with a lot of place bets across, so I finally adjusted and went with the flow.. of course hard ways were played hard as well.

    Got halved quick and left. maybe it's a new maturity, but I never left a table busted out, I chose to leave with something every time, however little, along with a little bit more self respect about my self control for it.
