What if I emailed the host, something like

The recurrent fog horn sound, which you said is from a transformer within the walls of the hotel, continues. Sleeping with ear plugs. I know you're comping the suite and all the food and we love the layout of the room, it's great - but honestly, I wouldn't take this room for free given how hard it is to get decent sleep in here.


or would that be too over the top?


The refrigerator was buzzing too, but I had them come in and replace it with a brand new one.



But you are taking it for free.🤣Get on the phone to a host at another property. Have them come get you and your stuff. 🙃

I heard the owner of Treasure Island bought the Circus Circus. Why don't you ask your host if they have a nice suite up there for you at Circus Circus. You can also dine at their steak house and play table max on their mini bacc table.

Why wouldn't you just ask for another room away from the sound?

He may be seeking to establish leverage toward obtaining other comps. I think MDawg deserves some promo chips for his inconvenience.

Exactly. We don't really want to move we have too much stuff, which is part of why we stay in each resort at least a week before moving on. Plus it is NY's eve this is their largest suite short of the Penthouse, and the reason we didn't take that is because that PH floor is a smoking floor, I doubt they even have another suite this size available, and anyway if the sound is like the host says coming from the walls of the hotel, would a different suite be any different? All of the Premier Suites (1300 S/F) at this resort face the same direction, so they are along the same edge of the hotel all on its top floors.

As Hugo knows, I already emailed the host about this and the internet, and then when he saw me in person he told me that the noise was an issue at the hotel itself within its walls, so the Q is whether to follow up or just leave it alone. Maybe the best approach, a la Godfather, is that when I see him next...mention it. Don't insist.


As far as some of the other responses (not necessarily just to this issue, but in general I mean), that any would waste time typing such things (for what purpose? just to say something snide and silly?) really makes me wonder what these people do with their time. Evidently not much other than sit around thinking of inane off the wall comments that they think sound clever. Brav-o. Well, if the purpose is just to get a laugh, some might have succeeded! Welcome to the internet! (I guess.)

Hi Darkov, Happy New Year! How are you?

I like Darkov.

You failed.
You've known that DarkOz does not spell his ID that way since June. So I take that post as a deliberate personal sleight to him.

Thus I'm inclined to suspend you for the rest of the year (UK time)

But I can't be bothered this time.

Let's see if I can reach 2020 without seeing any sleights or insults TO ANY EXTENT in this thread.

Happy and prosperous New Year to all.

I must have missed something. I have no clue what this Darkov stuff is all about(?), I thought he was being sincere when he said he liked him. I just assumed it was some term of endearment. Hell, I didn't even see DarkOz post anything recently.

Starting to get pretty busy out there. One side of the strip (LV Blvd.) is very congested. Had to drive take care of a couple errands.

The parking structure here is almost full, but I found a space. Didn't feel like dealing with the mess pulling in from LV Blvd. to valet.

Of course, I forgot something in the car. Have to go all the way back out there. Well, at least that is going to be easier than if I had valeted!

I have a headache already and it's not even NY's Day yet. Actually we don't even drink, so this is more of a not quite enough sleep or food headache.

Just so some of you know, you might have pegged MDawg wrongly. He's not putting on airs, he's keeping it real.

I just poured the hot water into one of these and opened a can of tuna.

Now why would I do that when I could pick up the phone and order about anything and have it comp'ed? It was my wife's idea actually. She noticed that there are times when I am in a hurry, such as to get to the tables, and simply won't eat, because I don't want to hang around waiting for room service. So, here ya' go.

That's what MDawg's having for lunch.

We have a water boiler in the room,

but actually I didn't buy that, not originally anyway, to make Ramens. It's for this, we are real tea heads - not meaning pot smokers, but

especially, she is a real tea drinker. Many of these are organic, or herbal, and not available downstairs in VIP. Plus when you want a hot beverage, again, who wants to wait 45 minutes for the butler or for room service?

The tea we've been bringing on trips for a long time. The boiler is relatively new, used to just have the hotel rent us one, and bringing ramen and cans of tuna, crab and lobster, trying that out for the first time on this trip.

Another important meal, that's easy to miss for gamblers, because we tend to want to rush out the door some mornings to play without eating - breakfast. Which is why we bring liquid yogurt drink, bananas and, for the first time on a trip, instant oatmeal.

I wasn't calling you or anyone a hater. I don't know how I could call you a hater since you're a "supporter" of MD. If you want to stretch it I guess you could take it as me calling you a hater of the haters? In reality, I was basically calling myself a hater.

Getting up $12k, then using the ďkey to winningĒ, stopping while ahead. All of which will ensure future suites.

Answering the canned food question, yes I like canned fish. As far as the tuna variety for a while we were getting this expensive as hell line caught tuna in the can, but eventually I realized that it was dry and didn't even taste as good as the standard supermarket Albacore in water. The Maine lobster they sell in the cans in supermarkets is costly, but quite good.


Haven't played yet, might not play tonight, will see.

Ate lunch, went to gym, then walked across the street to pick up our New Year's Eve party tickets for that party, which just as I walked into the casino my host texted me that he was at the host station and had my tickets, so that saved a trip to one of the ballrooms where they were being distributed.

The Strip wasn't closed off yet, and wasn't closed off as I walked back either.

Once across the street, checked into the room (the one night stay in the standard 750 S/F Encore Tower Suite that we will not be staying in), picked up the tickets, stopped by VIP to wish Happy New Year to the attendants whom I know pretty well I consider them like buddies, have even bought and delivered food to them whenever we were getting outside food for ourselves, grabbed a couple of mango drinks, and headed into the room.

Actually don't think it matters but I messed up the bed, threw some towels on the bathroom floor and draped a robe over a chair.




The view from this room is nice, but the glass seems spotty probably due to last week's rains here.

Or maybe it was just light reflecting off the glass.

The crowd at Wynn/Encore is definitely far more upscale than across the street where we are staying. Actually we haven't stayed here at Treasure Island in some time, but as I mentioned, this casino is throwing us pretty much their largest suite while across the street they gave us just a standard "suite" during this impacted New Year's week. So, I suppose that over here, we are viewed as a very big fish in that the pond is smaller.

Over there at Wynn/Encore everyone is more dressed up and the girls, if they are hot, try to look not just hot, but rich. 😃 Here at TI, it's like, Hello, how are you, I'm here to have fun in Vegas for New Year's; over there no one wants to look other than as if he or she has already arrived and knows the score. I mean at Wynn/Encore, if you're not Drake, you want to look like you could care less who Drake is, is the impression people seem to want to give.

It's actually going to be a bit of a chore to attend both parties, but I think we will attempt it - have dinner at the party over here first then head over there for a second dinner (I'll eat again, she won't, she's a very light eater), and then maybe return here just before midnight for the fireworks. My host over there went over the timeline with me and said "I'll see you at the party" (ulp, I guess that means we should at least show our faces). Only way to do it, to attend both events, will be by walking and while not far, I won't be the one in heels. We shall see.

I got this new razor

it is rechargeable and actually heats up a strip within the five-blade cartridge. I have used Art of Shaving stuff for years but not this new razor. I was actually going to say that I am almost more looking forward to shaving with this new device than attending the NY's parties when she walked in looking fabulouso, they did her hair and makeup in the salon downstairs. WOW. She blows away any girl I saw walking around anywhere tonight.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Okay here's an off the wall comment that's neither snide, nor silly, nor insulting. (Yes folks, it is possible to avoid all three!)


Hi Darkov, Happy New Year! How are you?

I like Darkov.

IIRC, Wizard once warned that deliberate messing about with user ID's could be counted as insults.

Isn't this thread's content controversial enough without many of us testing the water on what's acceptable?

Rebuke PG. Rebuke Mendoza

Seems to me to be intended to insult each-other.

Let's not. Let's stay on topic.

He's a Canadian, ribbing all Americans on their behaviour towards all Mexicans. Controversial and ABSURD!

This Limey accepted that as tongue in cheek. Others might have seen it as a racist rant.

My rebuke stands, unless over-ridden by someone more in tune with US behaviour. I'm happy to yield to Wizard or BBB on this.

Many posts in this thread are controversial and I'd even say there is some trolling going on.

Pack it in folks.

Last night we did end up going to both casino's parties.

The plan originally was to go to Wynn's party first, but at 9pm as we were getting ready to leave the room, my Treasure Island host called the room from downstairs to ask if we knew where the party was. That was something. No casino host has ever bothered to phone to ask why I'm not at an event, so we felt compelled to go to TI's party first.

TI's party was...nice. Great Old School band, excellent food, if we had gone to only that event we might have had a certain impression of a Vegas New Year's Eve casino party. The theme was a sort of, "Under the Sea" underwater motif.

TI Appetizer:

TI main course:

From the blue hue of the plates, you may gather the underwater lighting motif they were trying to convey.
They gave us these sparky twinkly rings.

As soon as dinner was over, we slipped out, luckily while my host's back was turned so that he didn't notice 😜 then picked up the gift the casino gave us which was some kind of dashcam.

We walked up to the room, dropped off the gift, and headed out to go across the street to Wynn. The Las Vegas Strip was closed off from all vehicles, so it was an easy walk as far as being able to cross the street diagonally, and not have to wait at any crosswalk, but still it was a good ten minute walk just to get inside Wynn, and then another ten minutes or so to get to the ballroom.

Along the way we saw many police officers, and even one fatigue wearing armed forces guy, more than a few of whom were slinging automatic weapons. Previously, during my walk to Encore to check into our "room" there, I'd seen quite a few Wynn security officers patrolling with Security dogs sniffing the bushes. (One thing I really liked about the Wynn dogs is that they are all now some kind of friendly looking little curly haired dog, no more menacing German Shepherds.) Security was definitely tight they weren't taking any chances. The last time we were in Vegas for New Year's was about five years ago, and it wasn't like this, not nearly as much law enforcement and heavy artillery presence.

Once at the party, which we arrived around ten PM, it was just clear even before we entered the ballroom that this party, dubbed THE PARTY, was on another level. It was indeed, THE party. It blew TI away, made us feel a little sorry for our host back there. I mean this Wynn party was akin to...a 500 plate Persian wedding at the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills. The stops were mostly pulled.



These pics don't even do justice to the event, it was pretty high end. A lot of the men were in tuxedos, and those who weren't were dressed like me in a dark sport coat with a collared shirt and no tie. (But they almost universally wore white shirts, I'd like to think that I one upped them with my purplish colorful Gucci shirt. 🥳)

You could just feel the caliber of the crowd. It reminded me of a line from The Great Gatsby, something about being "aware of the easy money in the vicinity."

Even though we arrived as most of the guests were eating dessert, they did a rewind for us and served us the complete meal.

Appetizer:

Main course:

Actually to be fair, the food was better at TI. Although presented more ornately at Wynn, the tenderloin medallion was overcooked, and while Wynn presented lobster in its appetizer, TI's prawns were unmatched - TI always somehow gets great prawns we've experienced this before at other TI events.

Kelly Clarkson came on at about 10:45pm and kept belting out a lot of her new and old classics, which again we're not exactly KC fans, but she put on a great show.

It turned out that the family at our table, their parents (which the entire family was at the table, parents, couple siblings, sons and their girlfriends) knew my parents from my hometown, and we had a good time at that table.

We left at about 11:35pm to walk back to TI to see the fireworks.
The Wynn gift was...slippers?

(Maybe they slipped something into the room as well last night, may walk back over there shortly to check.) TI had cordoned off the "quay" in front of the casino just for the invited guests from the NY's Eve party (and also for some other casino patrons who hadn't quite made the mark for entrance to the dinner party, but played hard enough to warrant a cocktail party under the stars with a direct view of the fireworks).

We ended the night outside, watching the fireworks, which they were coming off of the rooftop of the Venetian too, and down the strip as well.

Racist? Heís said heís from Mexico which makes him you know, Mexican! As far as the wall comment that was me mocking Americans not Mexicans lol. The Nathan part was mocking Nathan so Iím really not sure where the racist rant comes in?!?

Actually...I believe both PokerGrinder and AxelWolf were red inked for a while. I saw the red ink just before I logged off. They must've both been given a reprieve during the time it took me to walk to Encore and back. May I get one too, next time I'm deemed to have done something wrong? I think I like this kinder gentler Year 2020 enforcement policy, as long as it's enforced even handedly.


After walking over to Encore, I ran into one of the hosts I know over there, he gave me a NY's hug, good guy, he thought I had been up all night lol because I was wearing the same overcoat I had worn when we walked into the Wynn party last night. I just laughed it off and went with it, told him I had slept some. He kept saying, "I gotta get me one of those," meaning the overcoat. "That's hot!" He complimented it last night too. I wish I were rich enough to just hand people any item of mine that they compliment, wouldn't that be something? but this coat cost something like ten grand and I'm not at that level! of largesse capabilities.

So that you may get a visual, that this isn't just an ordinary coat:

All mohair, with Persian lamb around the collar.
I love haberdashery.

Okay enough fashion drivel.

On the way there I walked past this homeless guy on the bridge over LV Blvd. He was holding some kind of ID card, saying something about Please help the homeless vet.

I walked right past him soundly ignoring him, but just before I got on the down escalator, I paused.
Quote: mcallister3200

Iím not sure how someone could find baccarat remotely interesting if they didnít believe in superstitions or trends to an extent.


Correct, all gamblers are superstitious. One superstition I have involves homeless people. On one trip years ago when I used to gamble in Tahoe, after the hotel limo picked me up at the Reno airport just as we were about to get on the highway I saw this homeless person under the bridge, had the driver stop, and gave him some money. That trip I won big!

The next trip, I saw another homeless guy by the same bridge, ignored him. Lost that trip.

After that, whenever the limo to Tahoe passed by a homeless person, two words invariably came out of my mouth. PULL OVER!

So today, I pulled $5. out of my wallet, and turned back towards the guy. He probably never scurried so fast wherever he was deployed, assuming that ID he was holding that no one bothered to look at was in fact some kind of military ID, because he was on me in seconds.

"Good luck." Quietly, handing him the bill.

"Good luck to you!" he came back with, booming.

He knew the score. I think anyone who would hand money to these guys on the bridges, in between casinos, is doing it out of some kind of hope that the good karma will carry over to his gaming. "At least, that's the way I feel about it."

The room at Encore was empty, no casino gift, but it also looked like it had been made up, and not just turn down service from the night before but full final check-out service (but, my key still worked). So, if there was a gift in there the maid had picked it up. I stopped in VIP downstairs, ate a couple of yogurt granola bowls and some kind of not too sugary Danish, grabbed a hot tea and a couple of mango drinks (which both bottles fit easily into even just one pocket of this trench coat, another plus to wearing it 😃), and headed out. Was nice walking outside. Not too many people out yet, at least not on the streets, but had to nix the idea of bringing Tacos El Gordo (local authentic Mexican taco place on the Strip next to Encore) back to the room, due to the long line.

Tacos El Gordo often has long lines inside, but I have never seen it go all the way down the street OUTside. Forgettaboutit.

All right, order some room service, eat, maybe rest a bit, and then the tables. I actually wanted to go to the NY's Day brunch at the buffet but she rejected that idea: "We were around people ALL NIGHT."

Today will most likely be putting in some hours.

Glad you like it, but don't read it as a new enforcement policy.
Not totally even-handed. AW got an hour and PG only got 25 mins.
It wasn't a precedent setter. The next guy to hijack or troll in this or other threads my get suspended for minutes or months.

[quote edited with ellipses for brevity only]

Wow!. Just wow!
Nice coat and your trip report so far is remarkable (As in it will draw remarks)
I Don't believe in karma (unfortunately.)
But If I did, I reckon that you would be rewarded for your generosity with a session win of $5 but you would lose your coat with your ID and the suite key in the pocket: That guy would find it and it would chuck it down with rain as you crossed the road.
I'm clearly jealous of your trip reporting skills. Thank you.
Good luck.

One thing to keep in mind is that the true definition of karma is not that if I do something good, that good will come (right back) to me...but that by doing something positive it may inspire the recipient of the positivity to do something positive himself, and that ultimately this positivity that is spread out there may come back to you.

Now, I'll agree as far as this homeless guy, who was tellingly no longer on the bridge when I walked back (why leave a spot that gets you five bucks so quickly?), that maybe all he did was run off and buy a five dollar rock of crack cocaine. Who knows, maybe after smoking it he did something bad and so far from spreading positivity he spread some kind of mischief. But in general, if you do good things and treat people positively it will (or should) inspire them to do the same, and spread good and positivity themselves, which may indirectly come back to you. That is karma.

I stay in suites too

I just donít find it interesting, impressive, or even noteworthy enough to post about. A few people in your thread are very easily impressed

Iíd like to hear much more about your lifetime of success at Bacarrat. Talk more about riding the streaks, betting based on your feel for the upcoming cards, the importance of walking away at the right time , and most importantly.. talk more about how varying bet size is critical to overcoming the house edge.

Youíve briefly mentioned all of the above as contributors to your consistent and sizeable winning. Iíd love to hear much more about this and much less about ugly jackets
