Super Bowl bound today.

By the way, our SRO tickets received via app show an actual seat number. Received suite tickets many times in past never actually looked at them that closely, maybe it is always like this?

I got some good baccarat strategies on my YT channel if your hitting the tables once in a while. Look up baccarat strategy reviews on YouTube. I'm growing my channel on there for some cool strategies and some live play.

This suite wasn't as large as others we have been in at So-Fi, but it was nice, and not overcrowded.
There were three sets of food brought out, appetizers, main courses and then more food and desserts. Also, as usual, if you wanted anything else by special order the casino would pay for it.







Ribs (actually some kind of Tomahawk steak) on the bone, the whole bone!









As usual, the performers face the non-Club side seats.



L.A. was on fire after the win!

Day 41 play

DD Blackjack. 500 - 25000.

Couple of monster sessions, up and down, was down as much as -47K at one point. Got almost even, stopped.

-400

Note: Lately, for security reasons, session reports are not necessarily presented in real time corresponding directly to the day played.



I'm willing to present a side Challenge. If anyone doubts that any one, just any one of the Session reports I present during this trip is not entirely accurate, throw down a red flag! Put up a mere ten grand in cash, let's work out how to verify the Session to your satisfaction using the Wizard as the judge, and winner takes the twenty thousand.

I'll contribute five hundred from my end for the Wizard's time if the Challenger will do the same, so that's $19,000. to the winner of this side Challenge.

This Side Challenge remains good for the duration of this particular Vegas trip.

You are different than me. If my bet size is in the thousands there is NO WAY ( barring a true time deadline) that I could stop at down $400! Iíd bet $450 hoping for a win to end up. Iíd bet $900 on the next hand if necessary. Iíd probably find my friend Marty and bet $1800 one more time if necessary!

How was getting into and out of the stadium?

Well, generally when I am in the hole, especially deeply (was down as much as -47K or so that session), and come back to even or close to even, I stop. In that particular session I counted up after the end of a shoe where I had done well, realized I was just some hundreds from even, and stopped.

Getting into the stadium was pretty easy - we all arrived via casino transport of course, around noon. Getting out of the stadium building was easy but trying to walk back to where the casino transport was parked - not easy! Crowds, crowd control, barriers, closed streets, no-reentry to stadium grounds to try to cut across it, all that contributed to a difficult trek back to the home base transport.

Actor who faked movie deals sentenced to 20 years in prison for massive Ponzi scheme

That got me to read about the original and best as it were, Charles Ponzi
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Ponzi

What's remarkable about these types is how good they are at getting people to give them their money, and to not even ask for it back until it is too late. Ponzi really worked hard at a number of enterprises before settling into his scam, which actually had a basis in something that was quite profitable, at least on a small level, reselling postal reply coupons. If such types had just utilized their talents even somewhat legitimately they would have gone far. But perhaps not gone down in history.

Yes, but they will also have 25K chips and maybe even 100K chips, depending on the casino.

For example, at Baccarat, any table I play at private reserved or not always has some red $5. chips too.

Day 42 play

DD Blackjack. 500 - 20000.

Was down as much as -20K at one point. What was funny is that every time I was up I'd think, I'm gonna stop - but, I kept winning more. Up 2K, shall I stop? Up 5K, shall I stop? Up 10K, shall I stop? I powered right through from +10K to about +24K, and then called it day, after a bit of downwards motion.

+22500

I continue to wear a mask at the tables. Two masks actually 😆. During those weeks when people were no longer required to wear masks last summer in Vegas, people were catching Covid right and left. No thank you, I'll just wear a mask. Did I say, two masks, actually?

You can catch COVID in your eyeballs. People wear face shields. But if I'm hanging around a deserted casino, I don't worry as much.
The mask mandates for public places was removed in NYS last week, so now I feel like an unvaccinated bank robber for wearing a mask.

Day 43 play.

DD Blackjack. 500 - 20000.

I was never down more than about -5K but some of my larger bets were placed while down or barely up. Unlike some Iím not afraid to lay it out there.

As I've said before, mechanically doubling your bet or betting more simply because you lost the last hand is not the way to go, but then neither is flat betting. If you want a chance at winning at table games, you must vary your bet.

I visited another casino and while they had table limits of $15/$25 to $500, there was another sign on the table that said refused names will be limited to 1 spot and $100 max bets. They even applied it to Spanish 21 where the limits at the only table were $15 to $300.
They raised the craps table minimum from $5 to $15, so I'd have to come back with more money to play that. I had to settle for the $1 to $300 outside numbers roulette machine that seemed to repeat numbers with some regularity, including green numbers.
I just needed to drive 100+ miles to recharge my dead car battery. But it will be dead again in less than 5 days in this winter weather. Maybe I have to drive for 10 hours to bring the cold cranking amps out of the bare minimum to start the car.

Hi CC,
Looks to be a bit of a thread hijack.... But while we are here.... Just buy another car battery or find out what's draining it.
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is NOT a winning strategy: Pressing into trends is NOT a winning strategy: Progressive betting systems are NOT a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

Day 44 play.

DD Blackjack. 300 - 6000.

And this is where, if youíre winning most of your hands, you might win more than on a day where laid out much bigger bets.

Helluva run past three sessions. Really nice.

Found this yesterday on the ground on way back to the room. Money just comes to me! There is a dream feeling when you find money.


My wife suggested giving it to the Homeless. You mean the Homeless that hang out on the bridges between the casinos? Yes. Pause. I'll give them five dollars not a hundred!

Actually the other evening I took the hotel limo to two different Banks' ATM machines to deposit some of the winning cash that had been accumulating in my Winner's Pouch that I hadn't quite gotten around to depositing. My wife had our car and I was feeling Victorious enough to want to deposit some funds right then and there before dinner. So I commandeered hotel transport.

The Winner's Pouch is seriously bulging! with high denomination Chips waiting to be converted to Winner's Checks.

but at least now it has only a modest amount of cash in it, compared to what was in there just some days ago.

Anyway, trying to put hundred dollars bills into the machines and not choke them (only accept 3K at a time at one machine 7500 at a time at another), at one machine there were three Homeless lined up by it such that you had to walk by them to get to the ATM. Pretty smart mendicant thinking, actually. I wanted to give them some money but smallest bills I had were fives and I couldn't bring myself to give them fifteen bucks. At the same time it seemed wrong to give five to just one of them, and none to the others. I was going to take a walk around the corner to a nearby fast food place to get some change, but the limo driver was standing watch over me to make sure I wasn't harassed by the Homeless I suppose, so I ended up giving them nothing.

In the past I have considered giving the Homeless money while on a casino trip to be lucky. But lately, NOT giving them anything hasn't broken my streak. I did give something to a couple of African American youngsters who were selling candy supposedly to get school athletic uniforms. "I don't want any candy, but here are five dollars." I have to respect that sort of thing - at least they are not just begging like most of the others you see on the Las Vegas Boulevard bridges.

I was walking by a McDonalds and spotted two guys who I assumed were homeless by their appearance. They came up to me and asked if I had a few bucks for some food. I said no but I would take them inside McDonalds and feed them. Guess what...they were actually really hungry and ate a lot of food. I won't hand them money but will offer them food.

I have a friend who bought McDonalds gift certificates and he hands that out to people down on their luck. I think that is a great idea and may do the same.

I agree that is the best way to deal with it. When you hand them cash you don't know if they will spend it on food or on drugs/alcohol.

I suppose the ones who are singing or performing are more worthy of a donation than the ones who simply have a cardboard sign?

How about the feathered "Show Girls" who ask if you want your picture taken, then, I assume, hit you up for $20. or some such.
Anything goes with Las Vegas street performers - and thatís the problem

How Much Do Las Vegas Street Performers Charge For a Picture?

There is a regular who claims to be selling "Veterans" cold water at $2. a pop on the bridge between the Wynn and the Palazzo. That is actually a good deal compared to what water costs if you have to buy it at any Strip hotel.

Years ago there was a veteran with no legs who used to sit in a wheel chair all day by Harrah's (or close to that area) One day he disappeared and never came back. It was reported he made 6 figures a year and actually retired. He had a sign asking for people to help if they could. People really had a soft spot for this guy and I would watch him get a tremendous amount of money from tourist and locals. He had a great attitude and people really cared about him

I was walking by a McDonalds and spotted two guys who I assumed were homeless by their appearance. They came up to me and asked if I had a few bucks for some food. I said no but I would take them inside McDonalds and feed them. Guess what...they were actually really hungry and ate a lot of food. I won't hand them money but will offer them food.

I have a friend who bought McDonalds gift certificates and he hands that out to people down on their luck. I think that is a great idea and may do the same.

If I managed a Burger King, I'd hand out McDonalds coupons to every homeless person I could find.

That is actually pretty funny. You have a quick wit.

Day 45 play.

DD Blackjack. 300 - 20000.

I was down as much as -20K a couple of times, but eventually rallied to ahead +5K, then powered to +15K, then won a bt more and stopped.

One of the pit bosses I know, who has observed much of my latest up up and away run, said, "Keep doing what you're doing!"

+21200

Note: Lately, for security reasons, session reports are not necessarily presented in real time corresponding directly to the day played.



I'm willing to present a side Challenge. If anyone doubts that any one, just any one of the Session reports I present during this trip is not entirely accurate, throw down a red flag! Put up a mere ten grand in cash, let's work out how to verify the Session to your satisfaction using the Wizard as the judge, and winner takes the twenty thousand.

I'll contribute five hundred from my end for the Wizard's time if the Challenger will do the same, so that's $19,000. to the winner of this side Challenge.

This Side Challenge remains good for the duration of this particular Vegas trip.

There is an outdoor bar in Florida that puts out dishes of water for the dogs. Very relaxing place. A comment was "they treat dogs better than homeless people." Can you imagine?

A few months ago, I hit up the local McD's on the way to work, and got 2 breakfast burritos. As I am leaving, a guy comes up to me. He says that he's hungry and asks if I can help out getting him some food. So, I reached into my bag and handed him one of my burritos. I don't think he expected me to immediately call his bluff, because he just kinda stared at it in his hand for a few seconds. Then he asked me for money!

I guess I must look like an easy mark!

I agree with you, though. I have no problem giving a hungry guy some food, but very rarely will I just hand someone some money.

I'd rather give and walk away thinking good about myself than not and walk away thinking the world is a bad place.
The Buddha used to beg every day. Not because he needed to but so the people who gave would feel better.
Some people get it. Many do not.

In the past I have considered giving the Homeless money while on a casino trip to be lucky. But lately, NOT giving them anything hasn't broken my streak. I did give something to a couple of African American youngsters who were selling candy supposedly to get school athletic uniforms. "I don't want any candy, but here are five dollars." I have to respect that sort of thing - at least they are not just begging like most of the others you see on the Las Vegas Boulevard bridges.



Good for you. I respect anyone trying. I recently bought a couple boxes of Girl Scout cookies outside the grocery store and gave them to some young kids inside the store. I don't do good deeds often enough but will hopefully start doing more.

Sometimes these mendicants are looking for cash only. I've had one who was carrying a small tank of gas begging for gas at the station saying he was stranded on the road, look stumped when I offered to fill his can versus just hand him cash, and I've seen another dump the gas in the can on the ground, so that seems to be a con worn smooth through years of use, the ol' hang at the station with a gas can and bilk people for five bucks a pop.

Another time I told some beggar that he was going to use it all on drugs, and the guy looked surprised that I called him out, but claimed that he didn't use drugs but drank a lot.

DD Blackjack. 300 - 20000.

Had some up and down, but still on that ROLL. A different pit boss said, "You make it look easy."

+23500

Come on. Surely someone wants to share a tale of seeing panhandlers stop for the day, go in and buy some lobster and then drive off in their shiny new Escalade. Maybe work a little food stamp fraud into the mix.

Once a guy pulled up to me in the parking garage and ask me for money. He was driving a BMV.
