Up and and at em. A good 4.5 hours of shut eye. Better than a UPS driver during Xmas package season.

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

This guy could be you ballers if you play your cards right. Thatís right a crappy Mustang convertible rental car

Eating at Paris buffet to capitalize on extra $14 payment on 24 hour deal. I donít think this qualifies for the LVL food meetup requirements of Gobbo. But hey I do get a variet

Another example of tourist support of the local economy. These young troops purchased some local agricultural tobacco products. There was a strange sweet aroma from them cigarettes, but hey, now days there is good variety from big tobacco I guess

Not a joke and I seriously hope this guy is all right. He went down real hard and is still down. Be careful in these hi traffic rooms, Bellagio is just as bad with the impatient players.

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

Drama in the poker room! I watched a 90+ yo guy go down at the 3/6 game while I was waiting for a seat in the spread-limit game at CA. They were on him in seconds, had the EMTs (??) with a stretcher there lickety split. I believe he was conscious with the orygen mask on when they wheeled him out, at least.

Also, I think that silver car was a Chevy Camaro, dog.

LOL. Todayís CíMON MAN bonehead play. Leave backpack at Buffet! Just sat down after 10 minute wait and just shook my head. Cash out or attempt to navigate the gauntlet between Harrahís and Flamingo? Christ that would be three potential times in one day. Go for it. Made it to Paris, DNA matching test with security to prove it is my backpack and back in 33 minutes. This guy can move when Bose, Oakley and a tablet is on the line

His scooter. Got from table and I think a dude swung by and gave an illegal block. Just heard someone saying sorry sorry

He was finally helped up and got on and took off. Wonder what kind of release forms they have him sign.

Anyway. I am in for $1k and the table just got three new action players so I am in TAG mode

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

50 cent lives on! im slightly younger, so last trip was a family one, once we were all 21 (i was 23, so 4 years ago) and playing $5-$25/hand depending how near zero and drunk. the one night at monte carlo played almost all night with a dude that actually managed to get kicked out of his bachelor party group. he was really cool and every so often would just ship a stack of 3-400 on a hand, lose and reload.

definitely a camaro, thought the same

Thanks. I was really wanting to move to Wynn but even though I am only up $70 this table is really good. I am really card dead, folding a lot. Read most of Millerís the course and really trying not to donk bet just for action. Good thing if I raise and donít hit a flop I certainly get folds wit a continuation bet.
remeber the old pirate show at Mirage?
and a tourist photo for those of you Jonesing for Vegas
Going to hang at the V and see what can happen then head bad to the Bellagio later to end the night. Only about 10 hours left will try to go steady for an overall trip profit

Re: Trip reports kind of slow

Took a break to eat quick. Did the Harrahís buffet next door. Not bad. I do like the varietynow to get past the worn out tiredness and grind it out for another hour then get fresh air and move to the B. First hand back I get JJ. Raised to 20 with 2 callers so I rais to 70. All three call $280 in pot. I am on button. Flop AKX checks to me I check. Small card. Checks around again so I check. Small card second player bets out 120, fold. I fold first player calls. Better shows K caller shows A with small kicker. Happy I am playing good and donk a bet in to them, 70 loss is good

Two hands later. kK. Early position raised to 15, one loose player calls, I raise to 45 both call. AXX all hearts. They check to me. I check. Small off suit, checked around. Small off suit bet 80 I call and take it down. Sitting around 1360. Play TAG! Some more

here is a new one. Like 20 players sit and play electronically against dealer? Can you actually be a degenerative gambler like this? Hmmm.

Awesome. Thanks

Had to put on the pullover for the first time since getting on the plane. Two updates from morning. One, I dropped $100 in a slot looking for a score first thing thisAM. Out for zero, but hey I got like 42 TCs so I am sure CET will be all over to come back sooner. Two, I am a topper for those in the service industry as my son Manages a steak place and has good stories of cheap asses trying to get free meals, I am sure you are either a cheap ass or can relate to those who play the system. Not a debate on tipping but I do travel for work and donít typically tip housekeeping, do others tip at a hotel in say Chicago? That is a true question for you? Here I think it is standard and I try billy I forget at times like last June I fully intended to leave a little something but ended having to literally run to room and just grab my stuff. Today I did the good thing and picked up my room, true, and got everything ready just on the off chance the pit keeps me a bit too long. Left this just in case my roll is gone. At least the person can get lunch. I bet some of them rooms are just nasty at times. Ohh, pro tip for you bad sleepers, get one of these. that is the eye cover not a trading bra for man boobs. Love that on trips to help sleep
