    This is one of probably many TRs that are about to begin. This weekend was big and got bigger…


    I am going to attempt to do a live TR of all of the shenanigans (that are appropriate for this board). I will be getting into town at 8:10 AM and hoping to meet up with some VMBers to watch my Sooners play at 9:00AM at The Mirage Sports Book. I will be staying at The Mirage on a comped night from my host, WH.


    Plans:

    Watch my Sooners beat Tulsa Bet my Sooners, if I arrive in time Bet CFB Relax by the pool for a couple of hours Hope to learn Baccarat with broncofn and other VMBers Pre-party for the Craps Roll Craps Roll/Rail/Blackjack/Bacc Gamble Bet and watch NFL on Sunday Come home, ALIVE!

    I will be in town for about 36 hours, my shortest trip ever. Hopefully will be able to make some magic happen at the tables and it will without question be a trip to remember. I will be off work the Monday after my return so I am hoping for a day of recovery.

    BR: $3,000 - I have put this “Vegas BR" at risk since my last trip in August. I have been to the local casinos three times. Somehow, I have come out winners each time…+488(

    ) +13 and +200 (

    ) Instead of adding the $700 to my BR I decided I would take $3,000 and call it $2,300.


    Planning for lots of pics, as previous TRs (
    You must be a registered user with confirmed email address to view this content.

    ) suggest!

    Three days of work. Sleep. Vegas.


    Busy few days of work so it will fly!

    Had a dream we went on a heater... KP style!

    Then I woke up and came to work...

    Currently lining up sports bets...

    Under consideration:

    OU/Tulsa Under 71.5 OKST -24 Where can I see the active/live lines for MGM/Mirage?

    I also took a poll of coworkers in the office. Told each of them I would be putting $20 on each of their picks.

    No matter the line I will be placing for them(at my expense), for fun. Someone asked, "What do we get if you win?" I replied, "What are you giving me before I go?" Changed her tone quickly!

    Here is what they picked:
    BW California -6

    SR Oklahoma State -24

    TC Minnesota -23.5

    MS TCU -37

    JC Washington -5.5



    I am looking to make a M/L parlay with several teams for $100 bet.

    I'm ten minutes from a casino. Going to gamble before this TR officially starts. $25 in free play only.

    Apparently there is an advantage to flying to Vegas at 7:30 AM. (Didn't use early bird.)

    In 24 hours I will be in Paradise!!!




    Normally I eat where I can get a fortune cookie before I head out.


    I was happy with my most recent cookie and found it fitting for this weekend.

    Trying to finish up the work day!

    I have about four hours things to do tonight before I can go to bed. I'm tired so hoping to sleep through the night. Tomorrow night sleep will be non-existent.

    As mentioned earlier there are so many good TRs happening right now.


    I've been spending my night mowing and now having some family time before bed time.


    My middle kiddo picked Pizza!

    Forgot to mention did some coin flips with some coworkers today. Won $15. Never lost a flip... They paid for my pocket shots and my coffee in the morning.


    One coworker, different from last time, wants some roulette action on black. Gave me $25 for black then black. Wants a Bill in return.

    On my way to the airport... Slept well actually, other than a small sore throat.

    Just as I got the the airport (5AM Vegas time). I went through security, no issues no shaft touching. First win.


    Walked straight to the gate and started boarding A30.


    Couldn't have maximized my morning better. Luckily everything went smooth.


    Landed row 6 so should be off the plane promptly and to the Mirage to make some bets on the OU game before kick off.

    Boomer.

    Runway. Leaving three min early!!

    Landed 10 min early. Looks like I'm going to be able to place my bets!

    Uneventful flight. Left three minutes early. Landed nine minutes early.


    Plan now is to get to the Mirage and go directly to the sports book.


    In flight entertainment.

    Also pictured, beer one.

    FordDlr just showed up.


    We have opposite bets on the first half of the OU game.


    He has OU -17.5 and I have Tulsa +17.5.

    What a fucking first half for OU vs Tulsa.


    FordDlr and I were back and forth on who would cover. I succeeded more than once thinking there was no chance Tulsa digs out of that hole...

    Bam touchdown with 30 seconds left.


    Good. Covered.

    Shitty bets. Bye bye money.

    Bad idea. Never anything going.


    I blame BrandonC.


    -$900

    Went to a slot. Bad idea again.


    -$300.


    At Cromwell. Currently in for $300. At $321.

    I've been here twelve hours and I feel like I've done two days worth of stuff!!

    I got a few sports bet winners.


    Several losers.


    Ended up cashing out $11 at Cromwell.


    Went through Harrah's and was itching to gamble before check in.


    Just a cool $100.

    Wow my last update was 22 hours ago. A week has happened in that time span. Hoping to get you the details as soon as I can think straight. I've been making notes of what I can remember.


    I slept one hour in the 48 hours I was there. Always on the go...

    Last leg of plane ride... Still winning. This run good is incredible...

    Ok, where did I leave off… After the Mirage Sports Bar, I took a nice walk over to PH. Made friends with a guy who did not like my suit?


    His comment, “why are you wearing a suit, I don’t like it.” I said, “then I am doing something right…” He busted up laughing then we became best friends? Weird how that worked out.

    Went to the craps meet. Met some awesome people.

    Jer, Fullboat, Aces and Eights, Newmans, Way2Fast, Rubos, FordDlr (again), BrandonC (again), Gamesman, Jordan (Formerly known as GChrome), Hogman, katmu, dutchvelvet, undathesea, Packer, HoboFrank (formerly frank67), broncofn, MsBlackjax, PartyTriple (foremerly PayTriple) and there were others I did not get an opportunity to talk to as much.

    Shoutout to dutchvelvet for dressing up...

    Wow, what a shit show indeed. So usually when things are talked up sometimes you become disappointed. This was not the case this weekend. Everything that happened was a great time!


    First shooter of the night was Newmans, unfortunately nothing really got going on her roll.

    Next, Jordan…He was triple fisting wine glasses and trying to throw the dice with anything he could get them across the table… He seven out after a roll or two, eh?

    I was next to the Jordan Cab King. He made sure the cocktail waitress brought me a glass form his bottle immediately, what a guy… 20 min in to meeting him an he was taking care of me already.

    I rolled for about 5 rolls, made like $11 and sevened out.

    This is one of the last things I TRULY remember about the night.

    I made notes here and there so I could spark my memory but the craps shoot and afterparty became a blur once the Jordan started flowing...

    Jordan decided to buy in with fives...




    After the craps shoot, which resulted in a $500 loss, I think. We went to the Bungalow...

    I wish you could see the pure enjoyment and laughter in this photo.

    I know a few things that happened. dutchvelvet and I, in all of our glory, were destined to enter the Marquee Night Club right outside the Bungalow (direct access from the back door). We went out and found the three sisters, you have seen mentioned throughout the other threads in regards to this weekend.

    Elevator in the bungalow...

    There was no cuke show, to my knowledge.


    After the, after party, Jordan and I went to another after party at a bar inside Cosmo, not sure of the name, I was still a little gone… We were with the three sisters and their brother, Casey.

    We were drinking, cutting it up, being propositioned by professionals.


    Casey had about $6,000 on him at the bar. I know this, because he showed EVERYONE… WTF?

    About 6:30AM we were being watched by two cops and a security guard. We later found out this was related to Casey flashing his cash to prostitutes and the entire bar.

    We were not forced to leave, but we were escorted out.

    The three sisters and their brother got into a Prius and rolled out of dodge.

    Jordan and I went across the street to PH as the sun rose and got a limo. We told the sisters we would come pick them up in the limo and go hang out for a bit. They were staying at the Embassy Suites off strip. Our limo driver could not find it for the life of him… We drove by it three times until I finally got on my phone and helped him find it.

    We gave him some cash to wait out front and proceeded inside. We ended up having breakfast at the Embassy Suites.

    I wonder if I will ever say that again in Vegas…

    After breakfast all three of the sisters made it downstairs and left Casey upstairs to bask in his glory.

    First stop — Liquor Store

    The girls ran inside and bought champagne, orange juice, ice and red solo cups. Jordan(GChrome) and I decided we wanted a bottle of Jordan at 8:35 in the morning, because why not?

    Gamesman hit up Jordan and we swung by PH to pick him up. Drove downtown then back to the strip.


    Second Stop — "Welcome to Las Vegas Sign"

    There was a line, but we were on the clock on the limo. We went up to the front of the line and I ran into 6 women who were in Vegas celebrating being 50! I called bullshit, not one of them looked a day over 40. One of them asked, “are you all still up from last night?” To which I replied, “did you all actually go to sleep last night?” They got a good laugh out of that, but we were caught. I was still in my suit and had the bottle of Jordan and my red solo cup in tow.

    That was it for the limo ride. All said and done Limo was $300 with tip for the 3+ hours. Split three ways. It was a blast! Need to make sure to do something like that in the future. The sisters loved it.

    Little did we all know this was not even the high point of the day...

    After the limo ride was complete we went up to the suite at PH to shoot some pool and finish the champagne from the liquor store. We had already finished the bottle of Jordan.

    At 11:30 I realize I had a room I needed to check out of over at The Mirage.


    Ran to the Sports Book to cash my ticket from the Utah -13. Turned that $400 into $764 and that completed my sports bets for the weekend.


    Sports Bets:

    Tickets: $1,470 Cashed: $1,794.90 Total Win: $324.90

    So I was jesting about how much I hated the Texas Longhorns (Sooner for life) earlier… Well, they stuck it to me on that bet. If you remember, I had Cal -5.5 for a $300 ticket. When I went over to the crapshoot Cal was up 14 so I thought it was a lock! We were at the meet up at Ringer’s before the craps game and I was peaking over to watch the game… Three UT fans were loud so I used them as my register. I walked over to check on the score to see the QB scoring a Touchdown to make it 44-45… Ok, fine kick the field goal and let Cal win by 6 in OT. That will work… SHANK! He missed the field goal. I may not have won either way, but what a sour way to end it.

    Back to the story…

    Good news is that The Mirage allowed my key to work when I showed up to my room at noon. Went upstairs, showered, got all of my stuff together and went downstairs for one final session at The Mirage. Went to the craps table and it was rough. In for $500 and took $250 to a table by myself so I could roll since I was about 12 shooters away from rolling at the first table and it had started off rough.

    I started telling the Dealers about my morning and they asked how it had been going so I spilled the beans about the sisters. Their direct question after I explained about the limos and what not was, “did anyone get laid?” To which I replied, “Nope!” Their next question, “well that sounds like you all made a terrible mistake.” They carried on for a minute and all was well.Lost the other $250. And another $300… Degens going to degen.

    After this took a cab over to PH and got my stuff checked into the Bell Hop. So I could grab them about 5:00 when I went to the airport to catch my flight home at 7:30PM.

    I hit up Jordan and they were on their way to eat lunch at Hexx in Paris.

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


    I did not take any pictures of our lunch, but everyone but me had the $20 bottomless mimosas, or as they like to call it in the restaurant, three. I had a couple from one of the glasses, but drank my weight in water. I got the Margherita Pizza, it was very good. We also had Maryland Crab Cakes, Twisted Sticky Bun, Smothered Fries and Hummus Bruschetta. It was all good except the Bruschetta. Gamesman and I were the only ones that tried it, it was nasty. Gamesman was wanting some more mimosas, faster, so he went up to the bar and asked for the pitcher. (They don’t do that.) He came back to the table and said, “look what they gave me…” He had one in his possession. I think they were able to pour about four out of it before the manager came over to retrieve his mimosa pitcher. “I am so sorry, you all shouldn’t have this at your table, they shouldn’t have given it to you.” He refilled everyone’s drink with it, and as he was walking away he refilled them again, because these people drank them while he was there. No way were they only getting only their three.


    How do you pronounce “bru•schet•ta?” JJ, of the sister trio, works at a fancy restaurant in Breckenridge and she was convinced, because her boss told her so, it was pronounced “bro͞oˈskedə/.”





    IIRC we were razzing her about how to say it… I just did a quick search and turns out... She was right. So, if anyone sees them around, let her know.

    Big thanks to Gamesman and Jordan for picking up the $450 lunch tab. These guys really made you feel like you were ballin' in Lost Wages

    After lunch we went to the Bungalow…

    Forgot these... Pics from the walk over to the Craps Shoot!

    I love the lights at night...

    At lunch Jordan (GChrome), Gamesman and I were talking about extending our stay. We all were supposed to fly out Sunday night. 11:00 6:00 7:30


    Jordan and I were trying to solve it at lunch time. He had one hell of a time. He might have been charged $120 during his phone call… International Rates… Whoops?

    I was having trouble getting a hold of SWA. I called and tried to use their callback feature because the wait was 15 minutes.


    They called. I answered. It hung up.


    I called back went through all the prompts, again.

    They called. I answered. It hung up.


    I called back went through all the prompts, again.

    They called. I answered. It hung up. What in the hell is going on?!?! Is destiny making sure I do not rebook this flight? Did my wife set up a dummy number on Google for me to call?

    I called and waited. Got through. Flight change was $297. Done. Booked. Flying out at 5:35 AM…

    Got checked in over the phone.


    Damn. C 10 from Vegas to Houston

    Nice! A 22 From Houston to OKC

    I had slept one hour up to this point and the plan was to stay up all night if I was winning…


    I was the only one who had successfully changed their flight and Gamesman and Jordan said I could crash in their room for the night so I did not have to screw with getting one. Seriously, these guys party hard but they really make you feel welcome.

    Disclaimer: Talk it through in advance with the wife next time. She was pissed. Ended up costing me $300 in cash, a bottle of wine and sending her to get a Mani/Pedi when I got home.

    Next Stop: Bungalow!

    PayTriple was kind enough to open his Bungalow to us to watch some football, gamble and attend the party right outside his backdoor, LITERALLY.

    We also partied inside, obviously.

    We made the walk to the Bungalow and one of the sisters was failing miserably. She was absolutely decimated over lunch and the previous night. Right when she got into the bungalow, she fell on the couch. Jordan, being the gentleman he is, went and got her a blanket and a pillow so she would be comfortable. She was dead to the world…

    During her long nap we sat around and bullshitted for a little while. We waited for PT to come back as he was walking someone down who had to leave.

    In waiting we watched some football and checked out the views of the Bungalow.

    We decided to go out to the Marquee Day Club to get our gamble on, we heard there was blackjack…


    I get out there first and buy-in with $1,000. $25 min. 6:5. H17. Split Aces Once. I mean a total CARNI game if I have ever seen one. Also it was DD, but not the cards. Dealers were all very very attractive.

    It was kind of ridiculous how they were treating us. It was loud as shit. They were acting petty about every little thing. Here all of us were out their playing anywhere from $100-$200 per hand and they were busting us about playing multiple hands, having multiple drinks on the table, not helping us get drinks… For me it wasn’t as bad, I won $500 on the session, but I was up $1300 early.

    It was hard on your ears and very easy on your eyes. Sadly, I think I was the only winner at the table.

    When we got back to the room, PT was back and ready to party. I was exhausted and contemplated a nap for about 2 minutes before going back down stairs to hang out some more.

    J and G were talking about how well endowed they were… blah blah back and forth.

    As they are talking about it PT comes into the living room with his pants down, clearly proud of his man hood. We all three just busted up laughing. No way I would have expected any less.

    We turn on the music on the bungalow, holy shit that thing has a sound system… It was bumping! PT had a request for Bandz A Make Her Dance (Explicit) - Juicy J

    If you care to hear… NSFW and EXPLICIT




    I think this surprised no one and it may have allowed for dancing and twerking by the sisters… See PT’s twitter for proof.

    PT offered to take us to dinner since he had some comps to burn and he was checking out that night, he then opens his fridge and offers five bottles of…

    He says TAKE THEM! I would have loved that if I planned to check a bag, but alas I didn’t. Gamesman bagged them up in some Walmart bags and off to Scarpetta we went…

    We were underdressed, for sure. Flip flops, shorts and t-shirts. The trio of sisters also lucked out and joined us, as well. They were still in their black dresses from the night before.

    This might have been the best meal of my life. I got the Veal Chop, Lobster Salad and Divers Scallops. The bread basket they had was also incredible…

    PT ordered a bottle of Phelps Insignia 2011…

    From PT’s TR

    I am almost definitely a wine virgin. I am new to it, I am really a beer guy, this bottle changed my outlook on that. The Jordan first was a fabulous drink, and something more affordable, but i will buy a bottle of the Insignia and enjoy it in the future. Watching the sommelier work his magic and open the wine up was a sight to see in and of itself.

    We had another bottle of wine at dinner too, it was good but not memorable, as you can see I do not even remember the name.

    They brought us out a dessert menu, we laughed that back to the kitchen. We were stuffed!!!

    Time to Gamble...

    Immediately after Scarpetta I had the three purps in my pocket from the Day Club earlier.

    Time to Gamble…

    I go downstairs and change in $500. I told myself this is it, lose that then you go back to PH to hang out with everyone and I would have broken even at the Cosmo.


    Started off playing two hands at $25 each, quickly moved on to $50 per hand. Back and forth up and down. I go on a little streak and ride my bets up to $200 per hand. Well this is a spot where I was up the $400 I had on the table. Win this hand and I was done.

    First Hand - 8

    Second Hand - 4

    Dealer - 6

    First Hand (2) - 8

    Second Hand (2) - Q

    Split the 88

    6

    7

    Dealer bust and we are good to go…

    Shows a Jack…

    ANYTHING OVER 5….

    Ace.

    That hand was the most memorable of the trip, damn it. Stupid fucking Ace. I always like to sit third base, it allows me to quickly play the "what-if" game, because we all know that is healthy…

    I end up doing exactly what you expected when I lost the initial $500…

    Change another. I never had to dig out the other chip and finally cashed two bananas. Forgot to get a picture of them…

    +$500 on the session

    +$1,000 at Cosmo on the day

    Average bet $300 - Generous, but might have been accurate. I tipped over $200 to the dealer throughout the hands. Perhaps that helped?

    Head back to PH to find the degens I have made such good friends with. Their plan was to play Bacc. I had never played and was planning to check it out this trip.

    I couldn’t find them…


    I went over to the craps tables at PH and saw frank67, Fullboat and Jer. I also saw Newmans across the way at another table. I buy in for $1,000 throw my card down and ask for a $15 pass line bet as I saw the dice about to be sent to the player. CET ALL DAMN TRIP, "I need to see your ID.” Ok, that’s fine, but I want a $15 pass bet. “I cannot do that until you show me your ID.” Come on, I do not look 20. Check my ID sure whatever, but make my damn bets. MLife I never get ID’d… I do not get the idea that if they look under 30 “ID them.” Shouldn’t it be, “do you have good reason to believe this person could potentially be 20 years old?”

    Anyways, the roll I missed was a 7.ng. I wish I remembered more about this particular run of the dice, but I think I went on a semi heater (frank67, katmu and Jer might help me clear that up a little). Ended up cashing immediately after my roll.


    +$600

    I cashed in my chips and saw I had a text from Gamesman that him and Jordan were going to play Bacc in PH HL. I walk in just to watch the show and learn the game. I eventually buy in for $200 and ask for green chips as G said I could piggy back his while I figured out what was going on. I bought in at the right time… Back and forth, then I swear G had a streak of wins of 8-11 at one point. I learned the game and figure I will play it in the future, for sure.

    +$400


    We all three proceed to go back to craps. I am pretty damn content with where I am and I buy in for another $1,000 and cashed $1,300 this time. I tried the Iron Cross and was successful. I honestly never had a spot where I lost, I always had enough rolls to make my money back. Interesting concept and I will do it again.

    +$300


    After the craps shoot I ran into the sisters again, I thought they had already gone on their way. They asked me what I was doing and I was like, I don’t know. Probably gonna head to Bellagio to play some more Blackjack in an attempt to get to Gold before my trip is up.

    Straight to Bellagio - Solo! Not upset since I was in gamble mode.

    Buy in for $1,000 and meet a nice guy playing. Table min was $50 per hand. That is what I saw to get the right game. S17. 3:2. Other option was $100 per hand. I already had a stellar comeback in the works.


    I was down $1,800 before the night gamble started. At this moment I was up $500.


    I was up at the beginning… then back and forth and finally I am up $900 at the end of the shoe. I told the dealer and my new friend that I would be done if I won the next hand for $100.

    I got a Jack

    Dealer Six

    I got a Jack

    Stay

    Dealer flipped an Ace…

    Easy game.

    Color up and proceed to the cage to get my now very flush stack of cash.

    +$1,000 on the session

    +$3,300 on the evening +$1,500 on the trip

    To this point I had paid for everything in cash so that $1,500 included about $500 in expenses.

    I went back to PH on cloud nine… I made money had one of the best days in my “Vegas Life.” Good Food. Good Company. Great Gamble.

    I ran into frank67, Jer and JB in MN(nice to meet you!) at a BJ table just sitting there… They said the dealer took all their money…


    I took out $100 at a $25 min table and knew I was on a massive heater on the day… Only losing session was earlier at the Mirage. Think if I had skipped that mini session? Well, you do not have to think, I’ll just tell you. $800


    Win. Win. Lose. Lose. Lose. Lose. Lose.

    I am human after all.

    -$100 on the session

    frank67, Jer, JB in MN and I head over to the Cosmo to play some craps. Buy in for $200 with no intent of losing anymore than that to finish my trip. I do the Iron Cross again. Slowly building up had my first loss of trying it -$30 on a $66 Cross. Not too bad. I then build up my stack a little at a time, building it up $15 at a time. As soon as I would pay for my 5, 6, 8 I would pull my field bet and let those numbers ride it out.

    One point I had so much profit on a roller that I had a $30-6 and 8 $25-5 $15-9 $25-4 and $15-10. This was a $15 table. Most of my profit was then tied into that roll and once it built up it ended up being a much smaller win once he sevened. I only had a small profit, to think what might have happened if I had been betting heavy from the get go…

    Dice came back around to me and frank67 and Jer were still there, JB in MN had left. frank67 was ready to roll out, but I said let me throw for a minute. Turned into a pretty damn good roll. I was being quiet, doing my thing, no one was bothering me. I would launch the dice as soon as I got them in my hand. Nice fluid motion. You had better get your bets down, once I got the dice… They were rolling.


    It was going well and one guy shows up, saying this table is too quiet, we need some noise in here. I told him, no we are winning silently… He cheered on my next roll… following roll seven out. It was his fault, obviously. Thanks.


    +$175 on the session almost doubled my money!

    Jer and I talked about getting a slice of pizza while someone offered to give frank67 $15 to roll…

    We said see you upstairs. Well, he was right behind us. **cough cough** seven out

    Random moment: When Jer hit the elevator button at that exact moment when the door was supposed to open… it went up. We looked at each other in a what in the hell was that kind of look.

    Turned out someone hit the button just before he did upstairs.

    Went to Secret Pizza. Holy shit is that a damn secret. How the hell would you get there if you didn’t know where you were going?!? I guess that’s the point?

    Had the famous white slice of Pizza and another one with sausage, green pepper, and onions.

    White slice was better.

    After our slices which were only $11 for the two, not bad in my opinion, we went to PH.

    I went upstairs to the Suite Gamesman and Jordan said I could sleep in for the night and got my bags. I was nervous they would inadvertently put the lock on the door and I would be unable to get my stuff out of the room. Luckily when I got there I was able to get in and get my stuff. I didn’t sleep there but still appreciated the gesture.

    Went back down to meet frank67 and Jer at the BJ table for one last gamble before I head to the airport.

    Buy in for $300 and up and down cash $500. frank67 was not so lucky…


    +$200


    Cash in and straight to the airport at 3:30 AM.


    +$1,800 win for the trip

    Final details, thoughts coming up.

    This sums up a lot.


    I had no recollection of this photo whatsoever until Frank sent it to me.


    I remember getting the girls number on the far left and telling her she should come to the Bungalow.


    I told her the number she gave was bullshit, so she said call it. Sure enough at 2:36 Sunday morning I called that number and I recall, now, it was her phone.

    Final Thoughts

    This trip was an absolute blast! I enjoyed meeting everyone I did and the time I got to hang out and gamble. Can’t wait to meet more VMBers. Really it changes the way we Vegas.

    What an absolute treat to go out to Vegas, solo, meet strangers, and have the time of your life… That is TRULY what makes Vegas a one of a kind place.

    The Gamble:

    Started off on a roll with my +17.5 Tulsa 1/2 … rolled into my craps roll that generated $1,675. At that point I was up $1,000 on the trip. Things went downhill and got stuck for $1,800 after the craps shoot.

    Had a huge day on Sunday/Monday EARLY AM and ended the trip +$1,800.

    Hunter was kind enough to send me my stats for CET. 3,759 Tier Credits for Total Rewards


    PH

    Time Played: 5:26

    Average Bet: $193

    Theo: $695

    Cromwell

    Time Played: 1:16

    Low Average

    Theo: $125

    Only other stats I know, at this time, are I made Gold at MLife. Earned 10,253 Tier Credits

    I need 567 Tier Credits to get Platinum again at CET. I have only gambled there for two days, so I guess I was on a decent track. If I make it out in Dec, it should be a lock to get Plat. Maybe even Diamond if I plan it out properly.

    I do not have any numbers from Cosmo… Someone want to recommend me a host that can pull my info? The only stat I know from there is my 30 minutes 200 – 400 average bet. I probably logged 2-4 hours at the casino though.

    I felt completely under control most of the time when I was winning. I had numbers in place on where to stop and for the most part I did good at stopping.

    Company:

    Absolute blast hanging out with other degenerates. Jordan and I both thought it seemed so normal to pick up a limo at 7 am, pick up some people, buy some liquor/wine, and drive around Vegas for 3+ hours.

    I remember the weirdest details sometimes, and those are what make the stories so great.

    There is no one that did not have a great time at the craps shoot. I highly recommend you come to out to one of these events, if you can make it.

    Til next time…

    So, my wife just sent me this text...

    This was the shirt I wore for the craps roll all the way through the limo ride...

    My winning continues a week later at my home casino.

    Funny thing is I won, in an hour, what I won the entire weekend in Vegas.

    Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

    Got my stats back from Cosmo.

    Time Played: 2:09 Average Bet $179 Win: $1,120

    SY gave me this information. Got her info on referral from HoboFrank (Thanks, Frank).

    Talked to her on the phone and asked what I could get with my play, I realized it was nothing spectacular, but figured I would check it out. She offered one night.

    My question for all of you Cosmo pros; What kind of play would I need to warrant 2-3 nights comped? How many hours per day do they expect? I was not playing for any comps, this was literally me stopping on for the two hours that I did.

    I played BJ and got my stats from the session right after. 30 minutes at a $279 average. This was the $500 win session right after Scarpetta.

    How many hours would I need if I focused on an average bet of $100?

    So, it turns out I won an additional $100 I forgot about.


    When taking my suit to the cleaners they gave me this back... Glad I over pay for my cleaners... Otherwise, they might have tossed it.


    Might as well call it $700. Thunder Up!
