Just improves your chance to get off to a good start- you're probably less likely to be sat at a table full of regs then. Wish you well, keep us updated on how it goes!

If you are looking to stay as long as possible, this is probably the route you will need to take (so why not do it early?).

That said, best of luck OP and good on you for going for it!
That's always an option to sublet. I'd rather find a lease or sublet in person, so that's what I'll do when I'm down there.

I am decently young, unmarried, no job. However, I do sell quite a bit of stuff on eBay. That's another hobby I enjoy when I'm not playing poker.

Thank you very much! Much more stable. I moved a few times around the area here, so it set me back. I was hoping to be there years ago honestly. But life happens. Glad to be going now.

Re: My Las Vegas Shot #1

A bit too much "GL - we luv ya bro" here.

Let's set an over/under on days in LV before flying home. I'll guess 12 and the return will have nothing to do with losing $$$.

BTW - Good Luck!

Thanks for the good luck. Hey man, don't hate on positivity. I can't put an over/under on days, lol. I'll leave that up to you guys to pick that. I don't know what will happen and when I will return. 12 days sounds about right if I were to rent a place for a week after my cheap hotel stay is up.

My bet is that this guy will never go to Vegas and lie about the experience/results...

Taking $1800 roll and make a thread and go to vegas... solid plan

Re: My Las Vegas Shot #1

Odds are against you, only way you may have a chance is if you put in 60-80 hours a week or so at 1/2 and you are extremely frugal in your expenses. You need a life roll. I think its fun to do though and you will never look back and say that you had regrets.

Re: My Las Vegas Shot #1

Can someone cliffs the Trooper saga? I'm vaguely aware of him making videos and being marginally sane, is there more to it?

I second this. Give us an update if you are in Vegas and how things are going. If you haven't left yet, what are you doing to get ready and prepare?

Based on this thread and other threads by OP surprised he hasn't been banned yet. Thought he might of matured but obviously not.

Thanks for the "ongoing update of your success or failure of flying down to Las Vegas with a one-way ticket, booking a few nights, and seeing how long you can last"! Enjoyed it! Unsubbing now!
