    The trip started out at the OKC Airport. Originally I had planned to take a direct flight to Vegas leaving at 8:55PM and arriving at approximately 11:00PM. I was checking out flights and as I learned there was a small layover in STL I messaged Tring and we set up a meet for me to visit some of the STL casinos…

    I started drinking at 1:30 as I waited for my flight to STL. I had one beer at the bar.


    That was my first drink of the trip and the last.

    On the flight to STL had two Jack and Cokes and watched Mississippi Grind. Good flick!

    Once I got to STL, Tring and I had a lot of trouble coordinating where to pick me up… All my fault! We finally figured it out and were on our way to Hollywood Casino!

    Started off getting the player’s card and learned about their program, then we were off to play with the true VP degen of the site.

    Got two Goose Redbulls

    He found me a Triple Bonus with a return over 99%… I was in his hands… He coached me through every play. VP Genius!

    Ended up not hitting the big hands and dumped $50 after it was all said and done, really not too bad.

    End up finding a crapless craps game… Money in 7 out…

    Wasn’t feeling that and went over to BJ. Tring didn’t gamble a bit… I think that is more degen. He got his high off of me gambling…

    Had to play some pretty big BJ hands to finally win some money, but we did. Ended up leaving Hollywood Casino up about $420.

    Total blast… Only visited one casino in STL though. Got caught chasing.

    Luckily it paid off.

    Managed to get the Starbucks guy to dump my baileys into the mixing process… Thanks! I believe that was drink 6 at that point.

    Had an empty seat between me and the aisle guy. We made a small $5 bet. I won... No clue what the bet was.

    Uneventful flight to Vegas. Had the attendant bring me 2 drinks at a time so by the time we landed in Vegas I was at 10 drinks.

    Finally met up with Jordan…

    This is where things got very very fuzzy…

    Later.

    Took the limo to the liquor store to get a bottle opener.


    I waited in the limo while Jordan and the driver went inside to get the opener.


    He also came back with a bottle of Jordan.


    Now we have two.


    Pop open the bottle and pour it in our green solo cups.


    We went into PH directly into the high limit room to meet up with Gamesman and dutchvelvet.


    Not a VMBer... He ended up pulling this back.

    We had our bags with us. Dumped them in a corner and eventually a bell hop came up and took our bags to our rooms...

    He had a key to make it happen. We both tipped $20.


    BoostedRS and his friend, JT, showed up and had just eaten some Earl of Sandwich.


    I jokingly asked Boosted for the other half of his sandwich.

    It was good.


    Finally got us some proper glassware for our wine.

    Ended up winning a few bucks before we went up to the suite.


    IT WAS STOCKED! Kudos to DV.


    Gamesman had purchased a stripper pole for the room and JT was the hero to set it up.


    Very uneventful time in the room. Nothing happened, at least nothing I can remember!

    I assume we went back down and lost some money at PH, then about 5 am we went over to Cosmo, just Jordan and me.

    We played and played at the Cosmo. Got my CL all set up.

    Met up with Superpocky!

    The F word is not allowed. We got about 17 warnings. We found a good spot to leave and were on our way out when a security guard comes up and basically asked us to leave… No 86 or anything like that, just encouraging us to go and get some sleep.

    Ok, we are leaving…

    We asked for a booth that would hide us well.

    My first experience with the Short Ribs Eggs Benedict…

    Thanks again for the meal, Superpocky (Cosmo)!

    After this we walked down to the Flamingo… At this point I was down about $4,000, but I was finally coming to… I can say now on a clear mind I should have taken a lot less out and considered the first night a party night.

    We dragged Superpocky out with us, literally arms around his neck as all three of us went down the strip. What a trooper! RB, as we called him, is officially a savage.

    We ended up at the Flamingo when Seany D and TriggerMN came down.

    Trigger asked me what my green wristband was, instead of introducing himself, I was so toasted, I thought to myself. I am in a band. He messed with me, then with his “$5 Footlong” shirt he tells us he is a part of the board.

    This was my only play at the Flamingo and I was in a chair rolling the dice. I asked for an electric scooter to get back to PH because my legs were jello… Jesus, the pit boss declined my request. That was what his name tag said. He loved us too.


    Jordan and I left Flamingo, I think I was down $100 or so.

    We stopped into the Cromwell… What a shit show for me…

    -$1,200 BJ terrible… Craps three rolls PSO… BJ terrible

    Ended up stopping to stop the bleeding and watched Jordan tear it up! He ended up winning over $2,000 at Cromwell.

    Back to PH.

    After this session I was cashless. My only option was to go to Cosmo and use my CL or withdraw from the ATM.


    At this point I was down approximately $6,000 and we were only there for 12 hours…. Worst way to start a trip. I was however, having a blast!

    As Jordan and I made it back up to the suite we ran into dutchvelvet and decided to go eat some grub at Cabo Wabo.

    Decided at this point it was time to go and take a nap before we went to The D for the night.


    I also hit the ATM for $1,500 for the night.


    Once my 2 hour nap ended, also the first time I'd slept since we got to Vegas I went to the suite.

    Amazing dinner. I think our tab was approximately $757. We tipped in cash and our new host covered the meal for us.

    Before dinner, I was down about $500 at The D.


    We went back down stairs to play. We were the only people in the three table HL room where the limits started at $50.


    We played and played eventually I lost an additional $500 and decided to call it quits.

    We spilled a bottle of Rum on the table, but that was the only major casualty.

    -$1,000 for our downtown trip.

    Got some waters for the road and we were heading down to Golden Gate for me to use my freeplay.

    Somehow the four of us (gamesman, dutchvelvet, Jordan and me) all managed to get split up and essentially lost. On a straight street.

    I had peeled off to try my luck with my $25 chip I brought with me from Freemont.


    I went into the casino and had about 4 waters on me and I had chugged one.


    That's when this happened.



    You must be a registered user with confirmed email address to view this content.
    Register or Login


    Nothing but pure sadness. I was very drunk and I'll admit I reached for it. Ultimately, we had to say goodbye.


    Took my $25 to the roulette table, got ID'd. Missed out on betting red while they confirmed I wasn't 20. Then I finally got to bet. Stuck with red...

    RED!

    Cash out! +$25

    Finally started to head back down Freemont Street to Golden Gate.


    Ran into Jordan who was talking to some folk. The cowboy wasn't very happy so I pulled Jordan along and we began to walk to Golden Gate.


    Then we got separated again.


    I went in and got $100 in quarters and started to play $50 hands with the match play.


    Ended up cashing $150 in a short amount of time, so +$50!

    I wandered around and finally ran into one of the girls we all met back up and got into the limo to go back to the strip.


    Limo was absolutely stocked. Wine. Rum. Goose. Champagne.

    I decided personally I wanted to own the bottle of Goose so I borrowed it from the limo, proceeded to do pulls and chase with Redbull. Genius.


    Total for me downtown was $-925.


    Had a blast. Will stay at The D again.


    As we went back to PH, apparently I was dancing on everyone in the limo, except dutch, sorry you missed out dutch. We were all schwasted out of our minds but what a ducking time!

    Straight into HL room at PH. I don't remember this at all.

    Dumped what I believe to be the last $500 from my withdrawal.


    I think I was down $9,000 at this point. I seem to have lost $400 in $2 bills as well...

    Woke up after a blackout, two nights in a row...

    No money...

    Where are my $2 bills? Searched my bag. My bed. My other bag...

    I'm the only one that's been in my room over the last two days... What the duck?

    Head down to the suite and see the blast that apparently happened while I was out.

    Went downstairs to meet up with the guys who were going hard at the PH HL BJ.


    I said, "what happened last night?"

    "You went to Cosmo and tapped out your CL."

    "Oh. That sucks."

    Done gambling for trip if so...

    Decide it was time to head over there and see how bad it was.

    Go to the counter to find out my CL has never been set up...

    Um, what?

    I used it two days ago and all day yesterday and apparently last night...

    I even showed her this pic of the lady helping me!

    She got a good laugh at that.


    Fixed my issue and happily informed me I had full availability.


    I went over to some carny games and found chess and Jer where I gave them their breathalyzers.

    Not ducking around at 10:45 am.


    Went over to Bond bar to FaceTime with the wife for a bit and watch my son's basketball game I was sadly missing.

    He had fun and I did too. Got to talk to him through FaceTime and he was excited I was watching.


    Nice, now let's go win some money!

    Found a blackjack table. Let's GAMBOL!

    Met up with Superpocky who was genuinely the nicest guy I met on the trip. We played and played. Then some other degenerate shows up with at table. Welcome, PT. This was the first time I'd seen him since September. It was good to see him and I think him and I managed a small win on this session. PT gave me my card to the bungalow without hesitation. Took full advantage too!

    Leslie Chow (pleepus) came to meet us at The Henry. Very nice. Full of fantastic stories. Wish I'd gotten to hang with him more.


    After breakfast I was feeling like death. I had almost sworn off alcohol... Body was hating me.


    Went upstairs to see RB's room.

    After we saw Superpocky's room we went down to the Bungalow... felt like we walked forever...

    It was 718 steps from RB's room to the Bungalow.


    Along the way saw some progress at the Harmon.

    After this I was seriously dying. I told Leslie Chow and Superpocky I needed a nap or to go die quietly...

    Went back to PH and took a relaxing bath and rested before the craps roll.


    Oh ya, those twos...

    I must have hidden them from myself when I was blacked out.


    Finally got about 2 more hours of sleep... So including the previous night where I got about 5 hours I was now up to 9 hours total out of the last 56 hours.

    I was not very flush with cash so I decided to go over to Cosmo before the craps roll to try my luck.


    Started off very rough...

    -$1,000

    Got out an additional $500 and switched tables. It was terrible... Until it turned for a few hands.


    I got it in here for $400... I had 8 and 3 vs a 7

    Double

    Face down always.


    Dealer rolls a 9. Then a 7

    Boom! We won a ducking big hand... It's about time.

    $1,600 ($800 win) chips being scooped our way. Play a few more and finally determine I need to make it over to PH for the meet up.

    Now we go to the craps roll...

    The Craps Roll

    Started off with a meet up at ringers

    They brought us some pizza and wings and comped our drinks

    We also brought two bottles of the Goose.

    Jordan got a few people addicted to Crown Apple and Ginger Ales.

    Total sausage fest...

    aaisack semicharmed SDSteve superpocky gamesman Jordan BS TriggerMN Jer Hobo chess BoostedRS westcanguy

    During the meet up a host was telling us about a guy that almost got kicked off the property the night before… His offense… Putting the CASINO MANAGER on his lap and talking to her…


    Remember how I told you Pocky was the nicest guy I met? Look what he showed up to the meet up with… The same exact Pocky he had on his center table.

    Got some good food and good drinks and we were off to roll the dice!

    Table opened just on time and the limits for us were $15, but the table reflected $25 on one side and $50 on the other. It was not reserved, but we were able to secure it with those limits in mind.

    First shooter was semicharmed…

    To his credit he did not want to shoot, we coaxed him into it and he fired out about four rolls before his seven out.

    Next up was westcanguy…

    He made one point, but yet again a seven out too early.

    Jordan’s turn

    Once again a fairly quick exit.

    BS’s turn…

    I never hit a point, but I did hit every single number other than the 10 multiple times… I had a $25 five turned into a $150 five with quarter presses throughout. I literally hit the 4,5,6,8,9 all more than once, but I could not make the ducking 10! I had a decent roll but never made the point.


    SDSteve’s turn…

    Fairly quick 7 out from what I can remember.

    Through 5 shooters we have made one point… DUCK!

    PartyTriple’s turn…

    Fairly quick 7 out from what I can remember.

    TriggerMN… Is this finally the roll??

    Trigger rolled two points and lots and lots of numbers… We were hoping for our first firebet, but after our first solid roll, Trigger had finished. Some of us were hanging on by our shoestrings…

    chess was up next…

    Fairly quick 7 out from what I can remember.

    Duck. I was done tired of losing and losing, many of us colored up what chips we had left and proceeded to move on to the Bungalow for the night’s entertainment.

    We left a few guys behind, who understandably wanted to roll the dice… According to BoostedRS, his roll was the one we were all waiting for.

    Happy for him to win some money!

    We all loaded up every time… Had we gotten on a roll we would have taken them for a lot of money…

    While everyone was talking and bullshitting around the craps table I went to smoke a cigar and play some mindless sluts.

    Found a $0.25 Top Dollar…

    Lost $32 while I smoked. Only got the bonus round once. Terrible game.

    We all grabbed our Goose and Jordan and went to the cage. I had 3 black chips on me after the craps roll and decided to take it over to BJ for one hand. Some encouraged. Some discouraged. I’m a degen.

    All $300 one hand…

    BLACKJACK! I try to yell, but I had lost my voice so its just a loud shriek.


    The boys were all pretty happy and I had essentially won back my money from the craps shoot.

    We found some guys in some awesome suits and tried to get a picture with them.

    Now we were off to the Bungalow…

    We were looking for a fun table and found a girl in a tutu, with a boot (foot surgery), and a few friends around the table. Table appeared to be full, but as we walked up one of the guys said, “you can have my seat.” So we sat down at the $10 min table and began to play $25 per hand. I was right next to the girl in the tutu and she explained they were all out there to celebrate her friend’s birthday. Her birthday friend got too drunk and had decided to pass out.


    We played for a bit and I blew through $500 of my first $1,000 and for some reason I asked for another $1,000.


    Next hand I bet $500.


    Won.

    Stack it.

    Next hand went something like this…

    2

    Fun fact about tutu girl, her sister was there with her. What are the odds of Jordan and me finding sisters again?? Her sister worked for a non-profit out in LA and said she had a flight out in about 2 hours and she needed to go to bed. I said, no, you should hang out with us for a bit… No sense in sleeping when you are in Mecca. She had a toy drive to work,
    so Jordan and I donated a black chip to her cause… She said she was going to buy a toy for the kids. She as so excited about the donation, she kept telling everyone.


    We were about to head out and I talked to all of them about coming with us to check out the Bungalow.


    This was about 5 am.


    We got to the bungalow and played some music, checked out Marquee, got kicked out of Marquee… Went up to the hot tub and decided hey, let’s put our feet in.

    As me and the four girls put our feet in Jordan is already in his skivvies getting all the way in.

    Smart man.

    We hung out for a bit drank some drinks and ultimately decided on going down to The Henry for this meal I kept telling them all about.

    The two sisters were blown away and extremely thankful for the meal, they said they would not have otherwise tried the Short Rib Eggs Benedict.

    Breakfast was about $300, why you ask? We had a bottle of Jordan for breakfast, of course.


    One of the sisters had to leave, she said her good byes and the other girls were gone shortly after her.

    As they left I walked back with them for a bit to the BJ tables right outside of the HL room. I was feeling like gambling for a bit…

    Through this point I was up about $2,300 from Saturday to Sunday morning…

    Sat down and told myself I was going to play with $500 at $25 the entire time. Either win $300 or lose the $500.

    Pocket dump as I went back to the Bungalow to grab my breathalyzer I left behind…

    Ended up winning $425 on the session! Huge shoutout to Superpocky who coached me through the entire session, he made my bets and everything. I was toast, yet again. Not drunk this time, but exhausted.


    Headed back to PH to relax for a bit.

    As I got back to PH I ran into Jordan coming out of the elevator

    I thought to myself, man he looks like hell.


    Funnily enough, as I was telling gamesman that story they both started cracking up...

    I was like what?

    Jordan informed me he told gamesman the exact same thing after we had passed.


    Apparently Vegas was catching up with the both of us.


    After a small nap I hit Jordan up. He was in the HL sluts at PH.


    Head down and get a message from Jer as well. Tell him to come on over.


    We all three are in there at first I was just watching Jordan work his VP magic. The hands were not cooperating but he plays fast AF.


    I start to feed a little money into the machines now that I have a little cash...

    Then I hit this shit $250 win. Put me on tilt a little...

    I proceed to blow $1,000 right there chasing a win that wasn't meant to be.


    Then I go play the $25 WOF and blow through another $1,000.


    Shit! What am I doing?

    I end up feeding another $1,000 into various machines.


    -$3,000.


    I guess they saw my action and apparently I didn't have a host set up and a host rolled through asking where "Brad" was... Uh... That's me...

    He gave me his card. Very weird.


    I've officially drained my pockets again. Now I'm down $10k.


    I go mindlessly watch Jordan play some more VP. Nothing happening.


    I decided I would go over to Cosmo for one last ditch effort to win back the monies!

    Me and one other guy are in the HL room at $200 min...

    It was a reach for me. Last ditch to get my money back. Pull marker for $2k. Win one lose two... All the way down to zero.


    Pull marker for $1k. This is it. Lose this I'm done for the trip. Lowest point was $200, or all in.


    New friend, John sits down. I win. I win. I win. Back and forth to $2k down to $600. We are both playing three spots. Varying bets from $200 per spot to $500 per spot.


    Finally we start crushing them. John is talking to Mark, who is now my host. All of a sudden have $5,900 in chips. I decided this is the time I want to go for it so I put $1,000 in each spot. 17 18 AA...

    Split the Aces so now I'm in for $4k on this hand.


    The most beautiful up card and fantastic timing for the dealer. 5.


    Rolls a Q. Rolls an Ace.


    Bud. To say I wasn't sweating would be an understatement.


    EIGHT!

    Won all four hands. Pulled a King and a 2 on the Ace split.


    Love it when a plan comes together.


    Tipped out over $500.

    Turned $3,000 into $200 into $10,000.

    I've had over 120 Fiji waters. I order them 4 at a time at the Cosmo.


    Mark asked me if I needed anything and heard I was planning to go to The Henry. Asked me how much money I wanted… He said $100? I said sure. After I thought about it for a minute, I decided I wanted more… I said let’s make it $200. He said you got it.

    My stats for that session were:

    Avg Bet $900

    Time played 54 minutes

    Pocket Dump after win…

    I went and relaxed in the room before heading to Bellagio later with gamesman and Jordan.

    This was going into my final night in Vegas and I now found myself down $3,000… Not bad… Just think if I hadn’t hit the HL room at PH…

    Or… if I never played at PH?! That would have made this a very successful trip…

    Our goal is to not get asked to leave.

    We head over to the B. We start to play BJ Switch $50 min.

    Back and forth back and forth can’t remember what Jordan and gamesman did, but I think I was down a couple of hundred.

    We went over to craps.

    We all three got to roll…

    gamesman and I sucked.

    Jordan went on a little roll. He sucks at not pressing. I think at one point he had a $400 Hard Eight… Sadly it never hit.

    We all ended up cashing with a little profit. I think I was up $200 on the B at that point so my bankroll was $3,200 for the rest of the trip.

    We all went over to play normal BJ now.

    $100 min.

    Peeling hundreds. Peeling more. Peeling. Peeling Peeling.

    -$3,200 on the session. Not sure why I did not quit, stop, anything…


    Oh well. That’s life.

    Down $6,000 and done gambling.

    Lol…

    “Done Gambling”

    We hit up PT and he was over at Cosmo about to hit the HL Room. We met up with him and started to play… I’ll admit I wanted to replicate my afternoon session. I got very very close too…

    I had approximately $6,700 in chips on a $2,000 marker, not bad, not bad at all.

    I decided I wanted to be up on the trip so I put $1,500 in the circle.

    Win that hand and I am up $200 with a full recovery…

    I had a 19 with a 5 showing.

    Thinking to myself, wow, you did it. Win this hand and tone it down A LOT and you had a hell of a weekend, and won money.

    I cannot remember if the dealer got to a 20 or 21, but it was a devastating hand. Crushed me too, I remember thinking at the time, what? Shit! Duck! So close, I was supposed to win that! —Irrational much???

    End up donking off the entire stack as the table turned. PT might have been the only one to come out ahead… Here is a monster hand that he won…

    -$2,000


    $700 average for 2 hours

    Now down $8,000 on the trip

    Still had my $200 food credit at Cosmo so I treated Jordan and I to a breakfast at… wait for it…

    The Henry

    Of course we got a bottle of Jordan for the road, too.


    Jordan tipped the waitress. He said, "just $50 back."

    He gave her $100.


    She brings back an assortment of cash... He didn't think anything of it.


    Starts to put it in his pocket assuming she got her $50.


    She speaks up...

    She wasn't bright at all.


    We walk back to PH. Get solicited by a "massage therapist."


    I head to the room for a nap before Monday, my final day in Vegas.

    I am going to finish this, this weekend!

    Woke up in the room after about three hours of sleep. Started to pack my stuff up and took a shower, it was this morning I had realized how much my body hated me and how much I had destroyed it.

    Got packed up had the bellman come and get my bag and I went down to the suite to say goodbye to Gamesman and Jordan. They were both also packing up as I went back down to the lobby to head over to the M&M store to get my kids some colorful M&Ms, the one thing my son wanted while I was in the shop. Took a few pictures along the way.

    Got to FaceTime with my kids in the M&M store, they loved it! Let them pick out the M&Ms and I got them all some poker chips as well with M&M people on them.

    Went across the street and walked in front of the new arena and Monte Carlo on my way to Cosmo to give it one last crack to win money. I still had seven hours before I needed to head to the airport.

    Walked through Crystals on my way over and was slowly getting my game face on.

    I got to the table and was ID’d for the first time of the trip at the Cosmo. I look young and had on a hoodie and a backpack, so I was not upset, this time.

    Sat down and started off with $1,000. Remember at this time I am down about $10k and I have a $2k Marker out at Cosmo from the night before.

    Began to play aggressive at first then I found myself with $3,000. Made the wise choice to step away from the table and go and pay off the $2k marker. Back to the original $1,000, not bad!

    I played for bit and John, the guy who I won the $7k with earlier in the trip text me. I told him to come to the HL room and let’s do it again! I gave him my other “Yes, I’m drunk“ shirt. He loved it and put it on right away. We went on a little run and I was hungry. I asked the pit if they could order me a hamburger, I was half joking. They got on the phone right away then proceeded to ask me if I had a butler… Um, no. I chuckled to myself.


    They did however send the house butler to Holstein’s to get my a burger. I ducked up and forgot to get a shake.

    $40 for two burgers, comped but I threw the butler a green chip for his trouble. I only asked for one so I gave the other burger away. Not even sure if they guy ate it or not.

    I couldn’t eat at the table so I went and ate by myself in the middle of the room. It was kind of relaxing.

    Went back to the table and tried to recreate some magic. I ran the last $1,000 up to $4,000. Should have been satisfied… as I reflect back on what I should have done. I honestly do not think I had a goal other than to break even on the trip. I might have even risked $9,000 to get that last $1,000. Could not tell you what was going through my mind. I was exhausted, tired and probably not in the right mindset to gamble.

    I ended up losing that $1,000 and got out $1,000 more, from the marker we paid off earlier…

    POOF!

    -$9k on trip. Done gambling. (For real this time.)

    Jordan had showed up at the table at that point and I walked back with him over to PH. He packed up his stuff.


    We spotted the Ms. Universe contestants on the way over and decided to snap a pic. The preaching people with the megaphone and signs call everyone a sinner were also caught snapping a pic…

    Stopped at the fountains again on the way back. I need to do this at least one time each trip. Fountains are my favorite thing in Vegas.

    Home by 2am local time.


    I will make one final post with thoughts and feedback from the trip.

    Thank you all very much for reading. I loved writing it, apparently enough to basically write it twice.

    Final thoughts…

    I did not do my touted “$1,000 bet and increased by $500 each win.” This was never a good idea, and I know for a fact I never won ten hands in a row. I talked to some friends and they persuaded it was a bad idea. It sounded fun and it would have been, but I wised up and did not do it. I need to plan better for nights when I get hammered. I need to bring nominal amounts of money if I plan to get blackout drunk. Just enough to tip. I will only gamble large amounts on a clear mind, going forward.

    Never met up with my friends from OKC. Almost did one time, but it did not happen.

    I did not hit the spa and relax on my final day. Had I been up money this would have been much more likely to happen.

    I will never stay at PH again. It was not a good experience for me. Gambling was shit and to get things taken care of took too much work. I am not a high roller, but when things are promised you think they will get taken care of or at least communicated to you, you start to question things. Cosmo treated me right from the get go and they received more of my higher play for that reason. Looking forward to continuing my relationship with Cosmo going forward.

    Had a blast with Jordan, Gamesman and dutchvelvet. Constant shitshow with the four of us, even if two of us were the gamblers. I am sure the other two had their fun.

    It was also great to meet everyone at the craps shoot. There will be more in the future, although PH may not be the place for it. That is to be determined of course.

    I drank and drank and drank. At one point at breakfast on Sunday morning I thought I would need to go to the hospital. That was my last drink of the trip. At that point I switch to the waters and drank my weight in Fijis. I need to make sure to mix that in well going forward. Perhaps the plethora of bathroom breaks will help me keep a clear mind.

    Craziest person I met (that I did not already know) – SDSteve

    Nicest person I met – Superpocky

    Biggest drunk of the trip – Jordan .20 BAC (80% of the time) His high was .24

    Best Craps Roller – BoostedRS

    Played my biggest hand of my life two times. $2,000 then $4,000. I loved the ramp in play. That is what sessions are all about. Gladly, I won all both hands.

    Looking forward to doing it again. It is so much fun to go and do Vegas “solo” but have a group of people who think and act just like you do. Degenerate and drunk, gamblers. 

    I recommend anyone who wants to meet people from the board to attend a craps roll meet up or a meet up in general.

    Love that report. So much detail, so interesting, so exciting. Kudos my friend! I hope I get to hang out with you guys at some point, although my wife is always with me so any debauchery would have to be curtailed in certain ways!

    Debauchery? Us? The only thing we do is make sure we are in church on time Sunday morning.

    Fucking fantastic report. That's all there is to say. Sorry that you weren't ever able to get back to even but you gave it a hell of a try.
