Can't argue with that ^^^^^ every time I'm in Vegas I give it a pull or two.

Made it into Vegas about 1:30. Checked into my room at Rio and drove to The Mirage. I sat at a 25 dollar table and played about 20 minutes of a 6 deck game with a player to my right. It was a tough shoe but I cashed out 300 up. I stopped by the myVegas desk and picked up my ticket to LOVE. I then played 10 dollar table and left even. I only played 4 or 5 hands. I was uncomfortable with the new dealer. I was up 5 bucks an gave it to the dealer.

I drove to the MGM and played at 10 dollar tables. The first the guy to the right would wave off 16's sticking me with the 10's. It was as hard shoe and lost 95 and tipped 5. A went to the life desk to get my free pizza at Delights. The pizza tasted good. I wanted the french toast but that's a huge walk and I had enough. I sat at another 10 dollar table and played most of it. I cashed 120 up. On the way out I picked up my Brad Garrett's ticket.

So far I am up 320 and have tipped 30. I was hoping for 500 to put into a slot machine here at the Rio. It may still happen. It's suppose to be a5 dollar machine, but the one at the mirage had 2 max bet. I'm overlooking Gold Coast thinking about popping in to see the casino. Looks like a long walk from 13 floors up.

Was the $10 game that you played at MGM H17 or S17?

I guess that can be fortunate or unfortunate, depending on your point of view :)

Myself I'm much more of a sports betting guy. The hookers in Macau are far more aggressive than the ones in Vegas. DO NOT go to the Venetian Macau if you are a man on your own. You will get about 30 propositions before you got even half way through the casino.

They've all been hit s17. I'm finding different rules compared to the survey here.

I played the slot for 230 and lost. I did get 47 tier credits. Then I put 20 into a 4 card keno machine and lost but I got 11 true credits. Should have just plunked the 250 into the keno and scored 220 tier credits. I then played let it ride for 50 and lost 40. Put the last 10 on 10 roulette numbers and lost. Sat at a 2 deck game and cashed out 140 up and left a 5 dollar tips. Blackjacks paid 6:5. I got one. I left after I lost a 35 bet. Not doing as well as I had envisioned, but I am winning and it's not the blackjack that's taking my money.

Based on the amount I got to Vegas with I'm up $184.00. I still have 2 full days here and as many hours as I make Friday as my plane leaves at 5pm' and intend to pick some football parlays.

Then shower doesn't drain and I didn't bring my drain snake that I use to clear the drain at home.

I'm glad to know that the best six deck game in town can be found at $10 minimums, at least during the week.

I won't chastise you for playing 6:5 blackjack but why? Did you find a weak dealer or something?

Will you have a chance to visit the downtown area? I hear they have a great single deck game. :-)

Maybe the Venetian Macau should set up an "open outcry pit" to determine fair value of the ladies services

Hookers in Macau can beat their American counterpart in how fast they extract money from their clients? I greatly doubt that.

I would have had to hit the strip. For now I'm just looking at it like it doesn't matter unless I get a blackjack. To say that had I played those 12 hands without hitting a blackjack' it like saying I walked away up 135 while leaving a 5 for the dealer. Should the house he only be factored in for this situation if a player doesn't get a hand that effects the house edge? If I had seen more than one blackjack would that have increased the house edge more than seeing 1 or none? It might take 3 to have the edge close to max. A 25$ blackjack nets 12.5 at 3:2 and 5$ at 6:5.

I'm awake. Feet are sweaty. Just thinking how I'm going to attack the day.

I have a to get to a comedy club at MGM for 8 pm tonight so that will get me loser to 3:2 blackjack.

The slot I played is called triple diamond with cheese. 1 line 3 reels. You build a cheese burger by rolling a die in the bonus round. It's the only I've played without hitting the bonus.
