    I'm driving to Vegas today from San Diego. I'm there with a buddy for work, but we'll definitely be having some fun as well.

    In the past I've almost always stayed at CET properties, this time we're doing three different places. Starting at The D tonight. On Tuesday switching to PH, my normal spot. Then headed to Cosmo for the weekend.

    Then gambling plan this trip is not to spend hours at any single table. I'd like to go up a bit, then move to a different table, different game, or take a break. I'll be playing mostly BJ, Craps, and Baccarat.

    I'll likely hit a show or two, will do some dinners, and maybe even a night club. Hopefully I'll have plenty of chip porn, gun porn, and hopefully other good photos for the TR.

    On the way.

    OK. It's morning. Time to wake up, get some motrin, see what I remember from last night (so on can post it), and go fire some weapons.

    I played a combo of craps, BJ, and baccarat last night. Started with some craps. First shooter was my buddy. He hit one number, and a hardway, but it was a pretty quick toss. I was down about $300. Then it was me, a quick P7O, and I bought in for $300 more to make my bet. I was down about $800, and bought in for $300 more to make the next bet, I'm at $1,300 buy-in now; my BR for the night was $2,500. This is important later.

    Before the third shooter (after me) I considered leaving. The stick man next time me tells me that the next shooter was hot last night, so I stick around. Sure enough, he was hot again.

    Dude didn't hit many numbers, but the hardways kept me in it. I realize it's a sucker bet, but I play it $25/5, two way, my control. I made it $50/5 a couple times when the point was an even number.

    I was trying to keep track a bit of my tips. If I bet for the house, do I count the win as a tip, or just the bet? If so, I was at $185 in tips after craps, and left up $725. I cashed out for $2,025.

    I have to add that I love the 10x odds here. My buddy left the table $85 down and I left $700+ up. The different is from the hardway bets and going max on odds, which he didn't do.

    I'll have to update the gambling portion later. Now it's time for some, umm, research.

    I think I orgasmed when I unloaded the mag.

    Apologize for skimping on the TR and chip porn, it's coming. Hopefully I can remember enough of it. I've had some amazing swings.

    It looks like I haven't posted much. After craps I went to BJ. They didn't have my normal drink, Don Julio and Red Bull, tall and double. So after trying to choke down some Patron I asked for a bottle of Jordan. They had to go to Adiamos to get it, but I went through two bottles. My buddy had a couple glasses, but I drank the vast majority of it.

    Anyway, here's my BJ session.

    Jumping back and forth between the games was working. My plan going into the trip was to not stay at a single table for too long.

    Fellas, I've had a wild ride this trip. It's all a fucking blur. I'm sorry that I couldn't do this live, but I'll compile it all and will write it out.

    Here's a teaser.

    I've played some craps, BJ, and mostly baccarat. I hate baccarat, and negative progression martingaling.

    OK, I'm on my way home. I'm going to do this BS style and update it over the next few days.

    Cruised at 90+ to get to Vegas around 6 PM. The road was pretty open.

    First two days of the trip were spent at The D. Last month I met a host there that went over the top making a few savages have a great time there. So I figured I'd try there again.

    First impression this trip, host failed. I had a few text exchanges with him, he said that he was going to set me up with rooms. I go to check in, and nothing was set up. However, went into the host office and they fixed it all.

    So, checked into the rooms, not impressed.

    Then went down right away for some craps at 10x odds.

    $700 buy in.

    I decided this trip to not stay at any single table for too long. So I went up $700 at craps, and left for some BJ. Table wasn't hot or cold, but I hit a few hard ways which helps.

    So jumped to some BJ. They only let me play two hands at a time, but it was better than one.

    The D is a fun casino. But their drink service sucks. My normal drink is Don Julio and Red Bull, tall and double. They had no Don Julio. So I went with a Patron and Red Bull, tall and double.

    Remembering my trip in December, I requested a bottle of Jordan. The server said that she didn't think that they had it, but would check. A few minutes later she returns with a glass of J Lohr stating that the bartender says that it's an excellent wine. I'm certainly no wine snob, but Jordan has ruined me.

    I shot a quick text to my pen pals who said that we had to request the bottle from Andiamos, their steak house. A few minutes later she returns and I'm happy again, and continue winning.

    As stated earlier, I decided to not spend too long at any single table. So I won at craps, went to BJ and won. Now it was time for some baccarat.

    I'm still a newbie when it comes to Baccarat. From what I've seen, Banker will hit more than Player and they usually come within a few (or 5-10) by the end of the shoe.

    I learned a very risky (and possibly expensive) strategy from my buddy PT that worked well for me this trip. If I lose when I think that I should win, I press. Early on I did partial press, later I did full press.

    At this point I think I'm onto my second bottle of Jordan, and up $800 more at baccarat.

    And it was starting to be too much like work. So I went back to BJ.

    It's been less than two hours of play, and I'm up about $4,000.


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

    Won a few more hands playing BJ.

    But I was jonesing for some more baccarat, that shit is addictive. What I love about it is that you could possibly win every hand if you just guess player or banker right. It isn't possible to win every hand of BJ (although I tried later in the trip).

    So I took my Jordan to Baccarat and starting betting purples.

    After losing a few times on Player I start pressing.


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


    And I keep losing.

    So I do what any man would do who thinks that he's figured out a system and is mostly through his second bottle of wine after a few glasses of tequila. I pull out some extra cash I had in my wallet and go all in, for $3,200.


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


    This $3,200 bet is the largest bet I've ever made, up until this point. Not only that, but I only brought $8,000 with me to Vegas. But I was tired of losing, and figured it would probably win this time.


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

    And it did hit, I'm back up.

    I stay with baccarat after surviving that shoe.

    Next shoe starts going uneven. So I do it again!

    $200 and I lose $400 and I lose $800 and I lose $1,600 and I lose So now another $3,200 bet.

    I was so excited after winning that one that I forgot to take a photo for several more hands.

    I'd brought $2,500 down to play, and had to pull the $1,300 cash out of my wallet to press on the losing baccarat streaks. I'm up about $8,000 after tips for the first day. I probably tipped $500.

    End of day one for gambling.

    I was scheduled for two gun shoots in the morning so I stopped drinking around midnight so I could be sober by morning.

    I woke up around 0700, found some motrin, got ready, and headed out for the day.

    If you folks don't have What's App, get it! I can't always get Tapatalk to load quick enough to make updates. But I kept my pen pals up to date and can now use that as a guide for what happened. Some of the things I sent them, I don't remember happening. My buddy (who was with me) mentioned the events that I texted, so apparently I did them, just don't remember.

    Anyway, I remember that the night before I sent away some J Lohr. They brought two bottles of 2011 Jordan and then said that I needed to talk to my host for more. My host who I hadn't yet seen and messed up the reservation. Oh well. I switched to Captain and Diet.

    I think I left off at getting ready to go shoot. I woke up after a few hours rest, and was ready to rock.

    First a few pictures from The D.

    We had to make a quick stop on the way to the first gun shoot to charge the car. There was a charging station nearby The D with this little breakfast hole that was surprisingly good.

    Time for the first Sig Sauer invite only gun shoot. For those that don't know, SHOT is Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade show and is open to those in the industry only. It's about 160,000 square feet of trade show, so pretty large. It's held at Sands Convention center in Vegas every year and for the last few years had coincided with AVN awards.

    Some folks also get invites to gun shoots like this where we get to test new entries or something that might be of interest to us.

    For those of you who like to shoot. It's essentially unlimited shooting of some of your favorite weapons, for free. Or in my case, I'm getting paid to do this.

    One of my favorite pistols, a Sig P227, although my personal one is a P227 Equinox, not Elite. It's a .45 caliber double stack with a fairly thin grip. It feels very similar to their P226.

    I'm pretty comfortable with a pistol, but with some I shoot better than others. Often this will come down to how it feels in a person's hand and this one has a perfect weight, balance, and comfort for my hand. I plinked off ten rounds at 50 yards to hit the far target with ten rounds.

    An HK VP40.

    And that's about when I was getting the itch to get back to the casino.

    First stop is some BJ.


    I was in for $500 to start. Then $500 more for $1K. Then bought in for another grand playing BJ. Then had to double a two hundred dollar bet and didn't have the chips so bought in for $200 more. Fucking fought my way back to $2,375, then left BJ at $2,000.

    So I went to Baccarat and fucking made them my bitch.

    I'm in for $2,200.

    At this point I was thinking that I was done gambling at The D. I was up about $10K at The D. No sign of my host.

    Jordan tried to encourage me to play some more BJ. I tried, but it was too much like work. Then Dutch tried to encourage me to at least keep playing since I was on a hot streak, and they hit me with peer pressure as a gaggle. But as anyone who knows me knows, I do what I want.

    We were headed to Penn and Teller that night. So went to change, get cleaned up, and headed to Rio.

    Special shout out to PT at this point for encouraging my development as a baccarat player.

    I'd bought in for $8K.


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


    And was now at $18K. I decided to only bring $3K with me to Rio. My thought here was I would play to stay even the rest of the week. A week in Vegas and up $10K? That'd be a huge win for me!

    I wanted a limo to bring us to Rio, and limos from The D are the best. But their can't just be charged to the room here, I needed host approval and mine hadn't text me back. Luckily for me, a hottie host in the host lounge hooked it up for me.


    I almost left without a photo of the hottie. Jordan reminded me so I ran back in to grab a photo. She was a little spooked.

    But, I had to wait ten minutes for the limo. So obviously there was only one thing to do. I took $800 and hit baccarat.

    And then the limo. They're all fully stocked SUV limos. By far my favorite hotel limo.

    They made me work so hard. But I was up another $5,000. I fucking hate baccarat. I was up $15K for the trip. $15K still in my safe. And I now had $8K+ on me.

    I was tempted to just shut it down for the trip. Pay for the suites, dinner, etc. But fuck it. Time for Penn and Teller.


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

    Penn and Teller was great. I was tired though so slept through a couple of the skits.

    Again, fuzzy here. We went to a country bar to watch chic bounce on a mechanical bull and bounce around the dance floor. I remember something about meeting a hot chic. She told me that she worked at Office Depot and I told her that she was too hot for that. So she handed me her card.

    I was waiting for my buddies and dropped $1,500 at Venetian playing switch.

    I actually don't remember playing it. But I sent it in a text to my pen pals just like that.


    Then headed to The D. I was determined to get my $1,500 back.

    I dropped $9K more trying to get it back.

    It was 5:30 in the morning and I needed to get some sleep before the actual first day of the show.

    Got up around 9, got ready, checked out of The D, and headed to work. We'll be checking into Planet Hollywood later today.

    The lots were entirely full. Luckily they had three spots open for electric car charging.

    Met up with a few vendors throughout the day, and called it a successful day of work around 2 PM.

    Then headed to PH to check in.

    Checked in, am happy with my new host there. I had some waters there and grabbed a couple on my way down. Also spoke with her real quick on the phone but never did get a chance to meet her in person

    Anyway, I watch itching again, headed to Baccarat.


    Started good.

    Started with a $300 bet. Lost. Then to $600. Lost. $1,200. Lost. $2,400. Lost.

    And now I needed some cash to make the next bet. I think I had almost a full bet on me, but I wanted to do a full press to $4,800.

    I was still up from The D. I asked them to hold the table for me and I grabbed a $10K brick from the safe.

    And Banker pulls a natural nine.

    That was the largest bet I'd ever made, and I lost it. I was now just a few grand up for the trip. But, I'm a degenerate gambler, and I had a system. As well all know, systems always work, until they don't.


    I tell my pen pals that I'm pressing, and losing. And that I'm about to make a $9,600 bet.

    DV says, "Fuck good luck bud" I get a simple "GL" from Jordan.
    Frosty tells me, "Good luck bud" Jordan follows up with "I don't agree.....but win it bro"

    The Banker pulls a fucking seven! I'm not nervous, but fuck, there goes all the work I've put in.

    Before this trip I had made a few thousand dollar bets. I've even made a couple bets with two grand out there. But this is entirely new territory for me.


    I had a bet in September where I was betting two hands of BJ at $500 per hand. But my normal bets are only in the $200-$500 range in BJ. With those two $500 hands, I split twice and double. I had $2,500 out there and was sweating it. Two of my hands were 12s against a six. Luckily I won them. I write this above to show that this bet for me, was massive and entirely out of my normal comfort zone.

    And if I lose this bet, not only am I not up anymore, but my entire BR would almost be gone. I still had five more days, this was day two.

    33-21, so lopsided! And five Banks in a row.

    And boom. Crazy eight.

    I started to leave, but it was way lopsided so I played a few more and left. Back up $13,000.

    Time to rest a little, get cleaned up, and headed back out. Dinner party is at 7 PM.

    Glad you're all enjoying it thus far. There's more coming.





    So then a dinner party. Where I found these Italian legs.

    So I kept them.

    Grabbed a limo back to PH. Did a little more gambling. Dropped $600 in two shooters while playing craps. Watched a little roulette, then found a baccarat table.

    I just wanted to win my $600 back. I started at $200 and guessed right a few times. Then wrong a few times.


    Went up to $800 on martingale. Then cashed out for two yellows.

    Checked on my friends who were just talking. WTF! They're in Vegas at two in the morning and weren't drinking or gambling.

    So I wandered back into PH HL room. Sat at BJ, but really wanted to play baccarat. Went down a quick $800 before turning it around. Played one and two hands and kept changing it.

    Dealer goofed on the cards. She wasn't sure which card was hers and which was coming to me. Pit boss flipped top card and it was a 10 to match my seven, against dealer deuce. Dealer pulled a 19 and I lost both hands. But pit boss calls it a push and asked me if I wanted a reshuffle. I took the reshuffle.

    While waiting I went to the adjacent table, baccarat. Won $400 more on the two hands. Went back to BJ.

    Restocked some 20s back into my wallet and am up another grand. Time for sleep again.

    Time to get up and back to work.


    Saw another Titan XD there. Before I bought my Tesla a loaded Titan was my daily driver. I still have it and mostly use it for the dogs now. At some point I'll need to replace it, and this XD is beautiful.

    I went on a little run at BJ then started losing. So I pulled this bad boy out of my pocket and went heads up. Of course everyone knows to hold on 13 against a five, but when things are going south you question logic. I played it correct though.

    And someone was betting Banker. I like to see them first, but couldn't this time.

    Then it looks like $2,000.

    Then $4K.

    I wanted to bring about $2K with me, and didn't want to break the bricks. So I stopped by to play a few more hands.


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


    That worked well. Bringing $3,500 with me, $25K in the safe.

    I'm up about $19K for the trip. Max bets of $9,600, $8,000, and $5K in BJ.

    The last 9-4 vs. 9-4 was tough on the heart.

    Now headed to Hard Rock where the AVNs are being held. Which means porn chics everywhere.

    I'm again thinking about no playing tomorrow.

    OK, I definitely have to finish this TR. I'm headed back to Vegas next weekend and don't want to have to update two TRs.

    OK, let's try to finish this fucker. If I remember correctly, I was about to head to Hard Rock where the AVNs were being held. We're going to have dinner there and I'm going to find someone to entertain me.

    I'm up $19K at this point. Dutch asks me what the source of my luck is and I respond that I'll let him know after the trip. If you've read his report, you already know the source. Spoiler alert: it isn't a horse shoe shoved up my ass.

    I'm bringing $3,500 with me, everything else is locked in the safe. And my goal at this point is to lock in the win and no play the following day.


    We get there, and fucking porn chics everywhere. Some gorgeous, some decent, and some that I wouldn't fuck with a cucumber.

    I was very entertained that chics were walking around scantily clad. So entertained I needed a better photo.

    Then started to gamble there. There are only two places where I've haven't ever won, Venetian and Hard Rock. Unfortunately this trip didn't change that.

    I quickly dropped the cash I brought and had to pull out more. I went down $4,600 overall at HR playing baccarat. I just couldn't get in the groove and didn't have the BR on me to roll with it.

    That's one thing I've learned, a limited BR can prevent a person from riding the variance, and it fucked me with my normal style of play since I only had a limited amount with me.

    Eventually, around midnight we head back to PH. And I drop another grand.

    Only thing left to do is grab some more money to get back on the right path. I've got this.

    I can safely say that I remember none of what transpired for the above photos. However, I did track it all with photos and texts. I win back what I lost at HR and then some.


    Now up $23,000.


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

    But I like to keep a couple grand in my pocket, and a grand or so in my wallet. So I had to go back down because I didn't want to break a brick.


    I just need another grand or so.

    And time for sleep around 3 AM.

    Woke up around 7 AM.

    I chat with my buddy and we decide to try to get into Cosmo a day early. I text my host and within a few minutes it's set up.

    Porn chic tells me that she's hosting an event Sapphires. But a friend of a friend has an in at Rhino. So I think we're going there tonight.


    I go check my stats at PH. 5:46, $997 average bet, up $20,000. I later fund or this didn't include my play at Rio, and of course didn't include play at HR.

    I forgot to ask what the theo generated was. I figure that my play has more than covered the suite though. So I go hey some show tickets, and then convert some RCs into $300 in FreePlay.


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

    Decide to grab some food at my favorite burger place, BURGR at PH.

    Register or Login


    I ordered the Truffle Burger, it was delicious.

    I later found out theo was $3,385. Host was going to charge me $88, until she saw my play at Rio also. Still don't remember much of playing there, but I must have at least generated a few hundred in theo to cover the $88.

    I go place a sports bet next.

    Turns out to be a dud of a bet. But I covered it with a bet on Denver just before SB, so it was a wash.

    Check out of PH, get my car, and prepare for the long drive to Cosmo.

    Made out there without incident.

    It's about 3 PM but the suite isn't ready yet. I was getting a Terrace Suite with a Terrace one bedroom connector. It's a great set up which I didn't know at the time.

    Someone was in the connector. So I drop my suit case at the bell desk, grab my back pack, and figure I've got some time to play.

    Went to Baccarat and bought in for a grand. Then $400 more so I could press. Then $1,000 more.

    Then I needed to break a brick. Bought in for $5,000 more to make a $3,200 bet. And won.

    Then they texted, room was ready.

    30 minutes of play, average bet $800. Up $1,500.

    Cosmo is a bit tighter when it comes to photos. So photos from here on out aren't as generous. But I did what I could without getting locked up.
    You must be a registered user with confirmed email address to view this content.
    Register or Login


    I go up to the room, wait for my stuff from the bell desk, and head back down.

    Before too long I'm up some more. I probably played Baccarat, but don't remember this. It's 30 minutes after my last cash out photo and I have an extra couple thousand.

    $2,400 bet. That means I've already lost a $300 bet. Lost a $600 bet. Lost a $1,200 bet. And now I'm here.


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

    But it's 19-30 and a Banker run of five. So a Player win should come soon, right?

    Well, it didn't. Not on that hand. It also didn't come on the $4,800 bet that followed.

    I'm now out of cash that I brought down with me. I ask of they'll hold the table for me while I run back to the room to the grab a brick of $10K to make my next bet.

    There's one other person at the table so it's up to her. She opts to leave the table to go to another one instead of wait. I thank and run up to the room.

    I grab a brick from the safe, and stick another in my pocket just in case. I'm hoping that I won't need the second brick.

    I'm running through the casino now with a $10K brick in my hand and another stuffed into my pocket when a security guy steps in front of me to try to say something.

    My table is being held, kind of, I don't want anyone to play while I'm expecting Player to hit. So I attempt a spin around him and poof, there's another security dude. I slow down enough as I dodge them to tell them that my table is being held in the HL room at baccarat and they can follow me if they want.

    They kind of look at each other and shrug as I continue back to my table.

    It takes a couple minutes of them counting the hundreds at the table to get the chips. At $5,000 I'm wondering if I should do it. I'm also thinking that maybe I should make it a table max of $20K bet, but that would just be stupid. I came here with an $8K BR and just thought about doing a $20,000 bet on Player!

    OK, finally, bet is out. I always have the opposing hand flipped if possible first. Banker has a 10-3. I have a four, and I slowly slide it open under to see a nine.

    So we're even, 3-3. Next two cards are faces, tie!

    Do I want to do this again? Abso-fucking-lutely I do.

    They wouldn't let me take photos of the cards, but I did get this after the win.
