Day 161 play

DD Blackjack. Three separate sessions. All about the same as far as 300 - 2500.

Consistent, solid winning, added up.

+15000

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.

If pictures weren't supposed to be taken and you did not have the express permission of individuals (particularly known celebrities) to take their pictures AND this was an invitation-only event, then I would probably have to suggest that you remove the pictures with identifiable celebrities.

Charity poker tournament with numerous celebrities playing alongside, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Jimmy KImmel, Don Cheedle, others.

I ended up at a table with donks who kept going all in before the flop. I got crapola folded it something like 7 hands in a row, then JJ which I checked trying to trap someone and some idiot went all in, Jimmy Kimmel called, and I called too. Kimmel beat me with 10-10 as a 10 ended up dropping on the flop. I didn't re-buy, I don't do that at these free entry tournaments. If you wanted to rebuy though it wasn't cheap - up to $10,000. for a re-buy (all re-buys did go to charity, and were tax deductible). Pictures were supposedly not allowed but I took a few: by the end others were openly taking pics anyway, so I think it was more of a guideline than rule, and some of these same celebrities posed with me for pictures taken with my iPhone.

I wandered in and out of the event after I lost and ended up winning about $15K at the real tables anyway, so the evening was a success.

Good food too.

I think if you search you will find dozens of pics from this event all over the internet by now, taken by others.

Actually, two of the celebrities whose pics I post above, posed with me and let someone take a pic of us, so I don't think it's an issue.

What was interesting was that people didn't seem that hungry. The dinner was some great pasta including vegan ravioli, but the main course was that seafood, and all of the missing seafood in the middle - I ate, and I started eating late because I had just come back to the event after taking a break at the tables.

Maybe people had already stuffed themselves on the sandwiches before dinner was even served.

While I do not disagree with your first statement, I hasten to inform you that this is a commercial and for-profit website. If you posted them on a not-for-profit website, then I can't really conceive of any possible issue.

Listen, I'm not even an Admin here, so I'm trying not to have to send an E-Mail. Can you compromise to at least putting the pictures of identifiable celebrities in a spoiler?

The odds were not bad in that only 60 participants and 6 cash prizes, but as mentioned I got the donk table and idiots were blowing each other out every few hands - "all in."

By the way, everyone in the room had to test negative for COVID via an antigen test a few hours before the event, which is why so many are unmasked.

Day 162 play.

DD Blackjack. Two sessions. Losing session: 300 - 16000. Winning session: 300 - 10000.

First session, dumped a clean 40000. That took not even an hour and a half. Second session won almost all of it back could have won more but was getting tired and eased off once I was close to even. Winning it all back took about four and a half hours including a dinner break.

-160


All this cash from one casino went to pay off another. Walked from one casino to the other. Took a limo back didnít feel like walking again especially while carrying cash. Allís well that ends well.

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.

Day 164 play.

Baccarat.

First shoe, I got down -8K, then rallied back and forth until by the end of that shoe I was down only -3K. I cut the next shoe, and declared that Player was gonna be it - placed five hunny on Player and never looked back, pressing a little but not nearly enough all the way. Eight Players followed by ten Players. Nice! Free handed it all the way for a bit after that, then left.

+12500
