Buy into a craps or blackjack game at Cosmo using that bill. After they give you the chips pretend to get a phone call, then rush off.

Worked like a charm. Thanks Leon!

All right. Had some lunch at the sports book. Not great as you might imagine.



Hit Luxor to check my buddy in. And took Texas Tea to town.



Played some blackjack and broke even. Now to clean up and then dinner and then some poker post dinner.

Semi-Live TR: Ward vs. Kovalev, 6/14-6/20

Long story short I played 1/2 until 9 am pst or so then the table broke. It was four handed, so I petitioned the table to institute mandatory button straddle which they reluctantly agreed to. Then I tried to get them to mix in more games to no avail.

Then I went and played High Card Flush which was awesome. Hit a four card straight flush on a $25 bonus bet. The woman next to me hit the a five card straight flush two hands later on a $100 bonus bet.

Dealer told me I should go to bed, and I obeyed.

I'm roughly even for the trip. About to hit lunch then to the book to place some bets.

Running on 3 hrs sleep is tough. Drinks are helping I suppose but unless I get a second wind this may be an early night in preparation for tomorrow.





Also EDC scenery is off the scale. Almost painful.

Pulling for Casey. That'd be a nice story for a guy who I think has earned it.

Do the waitresses still look like strippers in skin tight leather with their boobs hanging out?

And back at it for a few hours. I managed to get out of the Rhino without a single dance. I am proud of that.

6 card flush on a $15 bet at High Card Flush. Pays 100:1.

Main event coming shortly.



Buddy being "interviewed" about the upcoming Mayweather fight. He's close to non-verbal, but the reporter is admirably persistent.

Just met Kristine Leahy. She's even nicer than she appears on air (which is hard to pull off). So gracious.

I love The Herd, and frankly respect the hell out of her (more than Colin).

This game won't make a huge impact one way or another on win/loss, but it's an absolute blast.
