    I have a friend who gets comped a free room whenever she wants to go. She is a UTH poker freak/phenom. She takes it seriously. Usually she can wipe the floor with others at the table. I will be playing VP. Another friend going is a craps player. I may give that a try. I've been watching some videos etc. It will be about a 5 hour drive.

    I will post my wins/losses/observations etc. it is my first trip there. Going with 3 other old(er) ladies. We can still put up a fight- we aren't playing bingo, wearing depends or support hose yet.

    On my to do list is a meal at Toby Keith's. Have never been to the one at Harrah's. Bar food is fine for me. I do not need to have an ethereal, life changing meal when I dine out.

    I am on a mission. My first Royal. I had one last Vegas Trip on Deuces wild with 3 deuces so it doesn't really count. I have already checked out VP2 info for the best pay outs.

    Close to one day away. I was hoping to maybe squeeze in s little beginner craps. But I read some reviews on Winstar and there are some complaints that they don't use dice but shuffle cards due to Oklahoma gaming laws. Anyone know how that works or if it is true.

    Yes, craps and roulette are cards only. Exact same odds so still a great way to learn. Just a little different and not as exciting as the dice.

    Got here around 12:30. Nice casino down $140 on slots. Cashed in some free play and on VP and up about $30 on that so down $110. Watching the Cowboys lose but it is halftime. I have also been up since 9:30 am yesterday. Running on fumes. I have gotten 4oak on 3 twice.

    hey Val...do they have that ridiculous "50-cent vig" for every hand at the UTH table?
    It's the main reason I have (so far) refused to go to Winstar, even though it's only an hour (or so) north of me.
