    This will be my first trip report in about 5 years or so, since the days when I first joined VMB. In the early days of VMB, there were not many higher limit players, so when we would post trip reports mentioning how much money we won or lost, there was a lot of disbelief, and comments that we were lying or making shit up, so I took the stance of "why bother". Since then, other higher limit players have joined the boards, and higher limit play and trip reports have become more standard. So, here goes, I will post when I can, and update when possible. Maybe not too many pics, but I'll try.

    A brief prelude - so I often go to Vegas for the day to get a haircut and to get in a quick gamble. About 3 weeks ago I flew in on a Saturday to get a haircut and to meet @vegasmacker and @Gaggles for a craps session. After I met the guys, I was down a little and decided to go play some BJ in the Mansion before my flight in a few hours to try to get even for the day. II got down quickly, and then (lol) missed my flight. The session was brutal, and I was soon down about $150k. Finally, after about 10 hours of play, I finally made a comeback! In a previous thread here we talked about quitting sessions with an acceptable loss instead of trying to keep playing to get exactly even. At about 3 am, I was only down about $20k, and going back and forth for the next hour, so I decided to call it a night and quit just a small loser. What a relief! I did not want to go backwards again and give up all the gains I had made back. At the end of the session, I had an average bet of $5000 for 10 hours of play, $25k theo, and used no comps ( i know, I know).

    So, this trip is for the Aria / Bellagio ppoker tournament this coming weekend, and to make up for the small loss from the previous day trip. Shifter is hopefully going to be back in town, as well as possibly meeting up with Tellafriend for drinks or dinner one night.

    Arriving Thursday night, staying at MGM Skylofts. Golf Friday at Shadow with Shifter if he makes it. Friday night is poker tourney reception at Aria, so we will stay there and have dinner at Carbone. We went there the previous trip and enjoyed it. Saturday is the poker tourney, and then home early on Sunday morning.

    Mrs BJ (ha ha) will be joining and last trip I called her "Golden Arm" as she was rolling the bones lights out! She was actually asking what time the craps crew we played with was going to be there as she had so much fun she wanted to roll again! Not bad when a non-gambler is actually asking to go play craps! We were up about $30k during her craps rolls and left a lot of money on the table when the seven out finally came. Looking forward to more craps this weekend.

    Will update as possible.

    I finally decided to get the same cut as the person on the cooking show who Ken mentioned has the spiked hair and so wrongfully turns California into 'Cali' verbiage. Can I get that cut over there as well??? LOL.

    Didn't we try this once, was it the time at The Bellagio, with my brother in law in tow?? Me, you, Shifter, etc. We started the TR and then each of us tried top keep up with it??? Is that the time you are eluding to?

    Myself, I will make an attempt also with the upcoming trip. The problem in the past is my trips are clustered. The kids usually come and I am out all day with the kids and in-laws. Then we do dinner and a show and then crash for an hour or two and off to gamble. Repeat the next day, mind boggling and frazzled. TR's never get done.

    I want to do a whole TR with pictures also. Although you and Shifter are far above me in action, I pretty much stick only to the yellow and occasionally the flag or chocolate action.

    you know what's funny.

    I'm now addicted to Eric's cuts and won't go anywhere else.

    and just last trip my wife went to see him and now she's addicted.

    we're now both going to have to coordinate our Vegas trips with the haircut cycle, lol.
