My 4th time to Vegas, my 1st trip report...

OK guys, the start of my first trip report.

A bit about me

I'm a 32 year semi-serious poker player who has been playing the game for 15 years. I've only in the last few years started to take poker more serious. I have a full time job / career and usually can only play on weekends, I am a loser online until I peeled it all the back to 2nl which I beat comfortably over 50k hands, and am currently break even at 5nl over 60k hands (Zoom) so I obviously have a lot to learn. I feel like I'm a far better live player than online, I consider myself fearless with a good instinct. My weaknesses are probably being too loose in general, I tend to open everything because I think everyone is a fish at my stakes.

Here is my current stats from this year:



Here is my graph from this year:



Vegas plan:

I arrive on the 13th of June around midday, my actual plan is to check in at my hotel, and get straight to the Wynn to late reg for the $1100 $1.5m GTD. It's an uber straight from the airport job. It's a long flight but I'm staying up the night before, have paid for premium economy and extra leg room, will take a diazepam and I'm hoping I can get at least 6 hours sleep on the plane!

I'll be looking to get in to the best $1/2 / $1/3 / $2/5 and POSSIBLY some $5/10 NLHE games, stakes will depend how I feel.

I do play PLO sometimes but I will probably focusing on NLHE for this trip. Who knows, you might get a sweat in a deep run for the Wynn Classic $1.5m GTD!?

I'm mainly a cash game player but have had some scores in tournaments both live and online. I won the Aria daily (chopped it for $4k each) 2 years ago, last year I came to Vegas I didn't play any tournaments as I was there mainly for my cousins wedding. Not a huge score I know, I am a recreational player after all, but feel I could mix it in bigger tournaments.

I'm also known to degen at times so I can give you updates of that too. I like to get drunk (in general) so I'll be doing a lot of that in Vegas too, the trip report will be fun as my trips always are, depending on if I can stay coherent and able enough to update it regularly!

You can expect lots of:
  • Obligatory shoe and roll pics
  • Chip porn
  • Food
  • Intoxication
  • General interesting views

I'll do my best to make this as exciting / interesting as possible. It's my first report so bear with me!

Till Thursday and from UK

Woke up today after 7 hours sleep which will do. The comeback starts today, I'm losing $1100 (tournament buy in) and $1000 from cash games.

I don't want to rush in to trying to win my money back though. Any thoughts on best places to maybe play tonight? I'm considering the Golden Nugget.

Never been downtown, myself, but I've always been curious to see the *uncapped* 1/2 game at GN. Apparently hit or miss, but sometimes supposedly crazy/fun/deep.

Re: My 4th time to Vegas, my 1st trip report...

Still running well in Vegas.

Call a raise in the small with 88 2 other callers. Flop J98 2 hearts I bet 2 callers. Turn A I bet 1 caller. River 7h. I check fold to 100.

2 hands later QQ I make it 10, small makes it 35, I make it 100 as he has 200 left and I'm never folding him, he shoves has KK flop K and I river a Q too.

Dunno why pics take sideways
