    Heading out way in a bit and it will be way to early to remember to post. Got upgraded both ways so get to start the comped drinks early in Hotlanta. It's always 5 somewhere right?

    Last trip a few weeks ago had a friend with me and it was the first time I've had a gambling buddy that played long sessions at night. I made some pretty aggressive moves that wiped out a sizable win and ate a good chunk of my bankroll up and this time gonna have to do like normal and manage the bankroll and only press when up. Must pay attention to the rail and count once in a while. I never went back for more money just didn't manage through the cold streaks as I should have. I blame the tequila and peer pressure but mostly that damn tequila. I read Shifters last TR and it was deja vu. I even bought the whole group of 8 dinner my god that was expensive. I've determined I made some rookie mistakes like not securing wins, betting the cold properly and being conservative at the start.

    Hopefully with the significant other being there I'll keep my senses about me with the drinking and hope she finally plays. She asked for felt, chips and dice for Christmas to learn and we sat at the table and I was a dealer and let her play and play and play. Hope she'll feel more comfortable with that first time at the tables. At least I'll manage the bankroll while she is there lest I get the glare of disapproval. It's more to learn the felt and what happens with the dice.

    I do want to give baccarat a whirl once just to see how it feels in person but I have determined I despise black jack. That last trip ruined it for me. Probably more to do with playing at a low limit table and stupid people splitting 10s and staying on 11....it pisses me off when I see that.

    I'll try not to clear out the minibar and lock my money in it and throw the other half in the trash can.....oh god the expression on the front desks face when I had to explain why the whole bar was empty. It was like $700 lol. They inventoried and somehow cut me a major break on stupidity by crediting all of it but that has to be a fluke. It was the Tequila I swear.

    Here's to hoping I have better luck and I'll be sure to give lots of drink and chip porn.
