Insert clever title here... a Canoe TR

Itís hard to believe that Iíve now been making Vegas trips for 11 years. Much like other posters here, I️ used to be good at poker. My trips back in the oughts used to be 5-8 people sharing one (cheap) room, shuttling to the Rio, and playing poker 16-20 hours per day. These days Iíve finally accepted that poker has evolved to the point where Iím lucky to break even at the Florida Indian casinos with drunk tourists. I️ just donít have it anymore. Knowing I️ canít hang, Vegas trips these days are all about the degen life. I️t used to be craps and carny games, now itís triple double bonus (thanks Leon )

Iím hoping that actually trying to write a TR will help me remember what I️ did this trip. This will be my 7th stay in Vegas this year, and probably my last of 2017. This is my first trip back since that cock face coward shot all those people at the music festival, so Iím hoping for better run good this time. Plans wise, all we have booked is Bazaar meats Saturday night. The rest of the time will be spent gambling over our heads, drinking way too much, and apparently being cold all the time.

Iím being long winded af right now because Orlando to Vegas is a long ass flight, and Iíve got nothing better to do. Iím hoping to post session updates/ strippers/ drunken ramblings, whatever. Just need something to document this trip.

The players involved are me and Drew, brother in law guy. I️ thought four of us were coming but now itís two...we will survive. The Cosmo has us hooked up with some type of two bedroom suite, full RFB as far as I️ know, and comped tickets to Adam Sandler that Iím sure we wonít use.

Iím a credit line player, but I️ brought a few extra bullets just in case we go to different casinos / strip clubs / whores



I️t wouldíve been 30k but the top
One is light after a very expensive strip club hit. Worth I️t.

Currently on a delta flight to Salt Lake City, then we grab a new plane to Vegas. Southwest and frontier both have direct flights to Vegas, but Iíd rather have a quick plane change and be able to fly first class since the flight is 5 hours. Iíll always pick comfort over convenience, so delta I️t is. Speaking of delta ****, Orlando has got to have the absolute worst dekta sky club in the world, but they still have vodka, whiskey, and cheese cubes



Anyhoo, Iím already drunk and drinking on a plane. Vegas will probably destroy me this trip but Iím up for I️t. Itís a literal guarantee that this TR with Canoe and Drew will end up being I️n the black 6 figures, or down 6 figures. Lots of TDB, craps, blackjack, prostitutes, pai gow, high limit rooms, and strip clubs.

Since Iím still trying to figure out tapatalk thingy, hereís a photo Dump of last trip











I️ guess Iíll quit for now since food is here with a fresh bourbon and ginger


Hopefully I️ donít blasted this thing.

Oh since Iím flying now I️ had go the online route for tonightís nfl game. Thank god delta gets NFL network. If anyone actually reads this and has a lean on a sporting event this weekend PLEASE holler at me.

I've got a good feeling about this one!

(By this I mean I think it will be entertaining. I'm not saying you're going to finish up six figures).

Itís up or down 6 figures. Anything less is unacceptable. The Bank of America on Sahara has Saturday hours. I️ didnít fly here to tie.

Good definition of degen: +/- five figures is a push.

Humblebrag.

This sounds like it has excellent potential--I hope you don't get sucked up into the Vegas Void and can keep updating the TR.

Thereís no humble brag about sky club in Orlando my man. Believe me. Itís been ďunder construction for improvements ď for 3 years. If anything was a humble brag I️t was that I️ brought large cash amounts and have the credit line. Iíll own that one.

Dude you need to learn the basic strat. It's on wizard of odds and honestly there's only a few situations which are non-intuitive (eg, Qxx suited > QJ offsuit, single ace > two off suit high cards, etc). The game is swingy enough as it is without proper play.

For UX- just find yourself a UX machine with TDB. I'd stay away from DDB bc if you make 4 awak, etc and get paid less you'll be left with "if only this was TDB". Trust me. I think if you learn TDB properly and then apply that to the UX version you'll be fine. Make a 4000 or 2000 hand x 12 and you'll be hooked for life...

I just print out the strategy I'm supposed to follow and take it with me. I don't care how stupid I look with it. After consulting it a few thousand times I start to remember it.
