Ok my friends - I arrived in AC about 2 hours ago (staying at Bally's tonight
then off to the big "R" for the rest of the weekend).

I sat down for my first session - at first, while the dealer was shuffling, it
was only me - then another guy sat down, then, right before the first hand,
2 other gentleman sat down, cigarettes a'blazin'...I proceed to get crushed,
losing the first 6 of 7 hands (and pushing 1) - meanwhile the guy next to me
could not lose (one seat away LOL) - so, when I lost $600 in 7 hands I called
it quits at that table - the guy next to me went on to bet $1500/hand and
was about $6000 up by the end of the shoe.

I proceeded to the next table and found out that CET properties are now using
pre-shuffled cards (no more washing) - is this new for 2013?
So the table was three people (including me) - I won the first 1 of 15 hands
(2 blackjacks and 2 double downs therein) - started pressing up to $200 and
ended up getting the $600 back plus another $1k

As it now stands, I am +$1k for the trip

(I am also anxiously watching the $25k hole card thread here in the forums - best of luck to AP)

Resorts is a wonderful choice! Much better than...ah, I see...nevermind:-)

Good luck to you this weekend! I may venture over to AC as well to pet come cats and test the low-limit availability on a holiday weekend.

Or worse, those rooms at ground level that used to be the Dennis Hotel a hundred years ago. The hallway jets off of the main corridor, between wild west and park place, so there is no security what-so-ever. You get the drunken bus people wondering down that hall looking for the bus lobby and everything. lol

Hope you have a good weekend Ace. Would be a shame if you took it in the butt again so soon after your 'procedure'. lol

I was in the Ridge a couple of days ago for old times sake. What's with the six lonely, roped off blackjack tables in the middle of nowhere?

Those tables were used for Blackjack tournaments after the Wild Wild West closed. Bally's no longer does any BJ tournaments.
one of my first threads on the WoV forums was about a fiasco in tournament management - read it HERE
