    Heading out early in the morning for a week of degenerated degeneracy. Several of us going but the main gamblin crew is three of us. Last trip until December so gonna go nuts.

    Saturday the plan is to put a little time in at the home base before crawling around the Strip.

    Land at 11am, set aside one minute to check in, one minute to sign for the wire, three minutes to eat and ten minutes to purge the bowel and bladder for some serious table camping until Dinner. So many still on the list to try so will walk until something smells good. May be Dennys may be some good Asian food or something down around Cosmo/Bellagio.

    Have plans to do a Sunday crawl of the downtown casinos. First time going to that area so hoping for lots of interesting sights.

    Monday through Thursday will be selling blood for cab money.

    Well if you see a really skinny dude (runner) an average dude (me) and a somewhat large fella (think John Goodman level) all playing craps and clearly together and friends well its us! May be more than that but we will clearly be on a mission this trip.

    About to push back got upgraded on both legs. Let's hope that's a sign of the luck this trip.

    Enjoying some Woodford for breafast

    Finally done for the day. Was down bad from Craps ate some dinner and tried some more and got busted up even more. Finally went to sit down take a break and play a little Blackjack. Clawed back to just a smidgen less than starting which is good considering how bad of a beating the craps gave us. Choppy as hell. Blackjack had two amazing shoes that just changed the whole night for us. We left when up considerably.

    Had four massages at the black jack table plenty of propositions from ladies of the night and just finished eating some kind of breakfast sandwich and off to bed.

    Tomorrow is Downtown time.

    We ended up at Holsteins and getting some good old burgers and beer for breakfast.

    Like a trooper I was up after three hours running the strip with a hangover and finally getting some food. I got the FunGhi. And this big sum bitch.

    Did a short stint at home base while waiting on my buddies and it didn't go well so looked forward to Downtown.

    the D. Great craps crew nice feel for a local joint. Two shoes and a bit of craps left even. Tried the Fremont was busy as hell at the BJ tables did some craps and real bad jive. Left down half.

    4 Queens. Burn this shit hole down. Left even.

    Bunions. I do that tongue in cheek. Old hateful people. Walked out damn near busted.

    Golden nugget. I call this Mirage mini. Meh.

    Went to Golden Gate and had a great time with great blackjack rules and walked out up about 10% for the trip. Really had a good time there.

    6:5 is becoming all over downtown but you can still get good tables with 3:2. Really liked the tables at Golden agate though.

    So Sunday night, got felted with black chip and up a hand black jack and took a marker out at the craps table pissed off. After about half of that marker vanished I did a self check and realized I was really tired and colored up and went to the room, about 3 minutes after laying down and turning on the TV I woke up 5 hours later still dressed in a cold sweat. Clearly I was not in a good state of mind...I was sober and tired!!!! Never good to have those two together at the casino for me.

    Monday, got up and dodged the crazies and sidewalk cleaners doing a few miles on the pavement to earn the next day's food. Ended up eating at Eggslut finally, O...M....F....G for a sandwich shop it was great. After that jogged back to the home base and did the day at the conference. Headed over to Bellagio to look at some shoes in Hermes. They are going to get a pair in that color from Wynn so I can compare the two before I make a choice. Ate dinner at some steak joint across the street in Paris Paris and had a nice bottle of wine that I can't remember what it was but really a good wine that was a great price.

    Sloshed my way over to the black jack table after we got back to the hotel and was felted with the remaining cash from the previous night. Looked at my buddies and said look I'm sick of this shit, I've been low balling all trip I'm heading to the tables to play some damn dice!

    Pulled a marker and it was nothing but a good night, point after point hard ways hitting the parlays, rinse repeat. Very little PSO. Had one guy that rolled enough for dealer left to rotate to right then break, then stick and half way through that he finally hit a seven. Was great. Didn't finish there either, he and a few others colored up and left but I still had the feeling, was rolling crazy crapper bets and knocking back cocktails left and right. I ordered a catheter and a pair of depends but they didn't have any for me.

    Bought back my marker, cashed out, staggered to the cage and deposited the rest signed for the moolah and headed up stairs dodging the hookers who were watching me count out some bills (was $25 in singles haha). I called out stage 5 clinger after two started following me asking where I was going and the security guys laughed and had my back and stopped them for me.

    So far for the trip up quite a bit, very good in fact so much that up for the year now in fact may be up for the last to years combined but will check tomorrow to see what they say. Was down for the trip before that run. Just a great time playing. I don't mind playing low games but it just isn't fun when you aren't doing what you love and I love the bones.

    Finally kicking their asses a little bit. Now to see if I can make it the next two days without burning the winnings up.

    That's the trick isn't it? I know it's easier said than done, but in my experience, it sounds like you had the one great run at the craps table that you hope for on a trip. Whatever you do, don't try to chase another one for the next two days and you should be okay. It's amazing how many times I've dumped or watched other people dump all their winnings and then some after a big run at craps, chasing a second big run that almost never comes. If I were in your shoes, I'd switch to BJ or another game that would minimize my losses even if I hit a bad run and lock in a win. Good luck!
