fantastic TR; thoroughly enjoyed it! This is a good snapshot of vegas for someone that predominantly plays poker.

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

What an awesome TR. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I think live TR's are really hard. They take a lot of effort and dedication. I tried one a few times and failed miserably.

You sir, have delivered beyond expectations. Congrats on a great trip and thank you for sharing.

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

Alrighty, made it home, took these off and put back where they were last Sun AM
Here is some info out of my tracker, again I am fairly confident this is within 30 or so minutes
I donít understand why the tracker says graph only available in Pro Version, I Am a pro, thought I just proved that as a baller in vegas?

I will end this saying total expenses were $3201 this was cash withdrawal and charges I made for air and Uber. I deposited $5500 so a net of $2300 on the trip. Will use for next summer WSOP trip. I usually go early June. Doing the report was pretty easy with Tapatalk app, I just updated or posted when I was walking, waiting for food or when the poker game got in to one of them lulls. I really enjoyed from the first reply who said he was interested in some OMC humor and then it pick up stern as I went along. Thanks and maybe we can continue next summer. Time for a nap

Did you guys know they moved the Eiffel Tower to Vegas? The whole tower is here?

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

LOL, nope the drama started when I determined I could downsize my baggage. I went from a small carry on type suitcase to a smaller bag, then down to just my backpack. Left the socks in the smaller bag, hence all the great advice on saving money and just washing in room and air drying! This is complicated stuff, packing and planning. Now I have to decide if we ever need socks in Vegas, cant upset the MOJO.

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

All, I am planning the next trip in June. Wife was certainly not upset with all the big bills i brought home so i best parlay and get the flight before she changes her mind.

With that said, if i were to do a trip report again, I see people just use the same thread. Is that preferred or better to start a new one when the time comes?

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

I’m happy with any TR but the nit in me does like with the title aligns with the actual trip. That said, yours works for any trip.

Beer looks delicious! Just googled it; 6.5% ABV; a nice session beer.

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

I like the continuation reports because I don't scan LVL for new threads all that often. I can subscribe to reports I like and get a notification if/when OMC II starts. So, if you do start a new thread, maybe bump this one to let me know? Thanks for the report, very enjoyable!

Excellent trip report, very well done! What bankroll/poker app are you using?

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

I use Poker Bankroll Tracker, just the free version, Pro version is $10 per year I believe. I like a lot of the features for my level, I love the filter feature and it gives most info I would want to see. Worst thing is data is only on that device so if/when the phone goes I am out a couple years of data.

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

I use the same app. It's an excellent app, but like you, although I'm a old man pro, just like you(ok, ok, you're more baller)I refuse to spend the extra cash for the pro version.
I know, I know, shame on me.
But what I also do is as a safegaurd, I write down all my results on a notebook as well.
With all the cash you won in Vegas, maybe you can hire a pretty Secretary to do all the work for you.

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

Gearing up for the next trip, planning to keep it live again this time as I enjoyed it. Hope to keep up with it. In 29 days, and 23 hours I should be on the ground in LAS heading for the Uber pick-up!

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

Will be doing another trip report. Two weeks, actually less than two hours less than two weeks from now I will be out of LAS airport. Debated between starting a new post or continuing this one, will continue this one.

Booked flight back in Dec and had first cooler end of Feb or beginning of March when Frontier changed my flight. At first I had Monday June 3rd departing around 830 am, arriving around 930. Departing around 1130 am on the 7th. This was a direct fight that changed to like one layover each way leaving at 7 at night and arriving like 1130 pm. Departing at like 1230 am which is about a loss of a day. They offered a free change and I was able to get the normal flights on 2nd and 6th that I normally take. It is less time but negligible so I went with it.

Since I been back in Dec I had these stats:
This is my play since returning, a good reality check
This was my play during my last Vegas trip in Dec
this is my overall since I started keeping track a coupe years ago. $12 for an hourly rec player, not bad

I have been taking around $3k for the past couple of years for around 3.5 days which has worked pretty good for the wife allowing me the solo trips. For my big birthday this year she gave me a $1000 more for this trip only so I been contemplating a tourney. Last summer I enter the colossus hi how was just under $600 with fees. Wanted the experience but I just donít think I have the patience for tourney play so it will be a game time decision if I can find a low buy in that works during my days.

Hoping the MKE Bucks finish out this series with Toronto and I can watch a game or two while out there. I really think they can beat the Warriors this year, but until a month or so ago I had never watched more than a few minutes of NBA ball!
