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 think he said "hit s17" which would be H17 in the common parlance. Unless I misread.

You're right. He still may be able to find a $15 minimum S17 game mid week at MGM. Let us know, William.

Will do. Tuesday the were 10$ tables if you're keeping score. 3 of the sessions I played should have been at 25 minimum. The 1st was played at 25. I chickened out and it's worked in my favor so far. 2 of those shoes would have killed me at a quarter. The hard one for sure. The tough one is a tough call as I managed to break even.

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



My apologies to the OP, this will be the last time I skew from the thread.

Dicenor the difference is the girls in Vegas get the money from you by pick pocketing you after you pass out. I have HEARD the girls in Macau are not quite as devious. All you have to worry about with them is the upsell :)

wroberson, early AM there should be $10 3-2 six deck BJ at Mandalay Bay. Rules are h-17, no surrender, DAS. Rules aren't great but the dealers at least are relatively friendly :)

The tub still hasn't drained. Tomorrow's shower is going to suck. Standing in my own filth...

There were plenty of 10 and 15 dollar tables at MGM. Many are machine shuffled, but there's several hand shuffled tables at those amounts. It was another tough night. Sat down before the stand up an lost 100 including tip in about an hour. I was in the danger zone, but caught a hand with my largest bet of 110. I played a bit longer and cashed out down 100. All are H17. I haven't seen a S17 yet.

The stand up was fun. All three comedians were great and the audience was in tears. I'm bad with names but you can find them online if interested. After the show I sat at another 15 minimum table and played for another hour. It was hard. Every time I was close to breaking even, a double down would come along and knock me back. A few hands into the 3rd shoe, I broke out and managed a win. Left the table up 150.

I am up 230 for the trip. Up 65 if I start with the money I had at home and up 230 with the money I had when I got to Vegas. Not the 2k I was hoping for, but it's better than losing. Maybe Thursday I see another big win.

Dinner time!

As a general statement, suffice to say that for less than $200.usd you can spend four or five hours in a "spa" in Macau and enjoy everything from head to toe plus food.

Regarding the other point, you are both wrong. In Bangkok where I stay you don't even have to leave the elevator. Point, hold on to the "door open" and within ten seconds she(or in some cases, he who looks like a she) will be inside and the elevator, it gliding back up towards your floor. I kid you not. It's that sick and perverted. Las Vegas "escorts" are generally considered a big joke to Asian residents and ExPats.

It's raining and Flamingo Rd is a river. Still can't see the mountains but the air is clean and the layer of haze is gone.

Headed over to Gold Coast for there was nothing going on here at Rio. Lots of 2 deck5 and 10$ tables. I played a few shuffles. 1 was with a dealer who was being tested. Several cards hit the floor. I was pressing losing bets and like so many times before the house could not come up with the 1 card to knock me out. Instead, I doubled the 11 and caught the 10. I also made a couple of side bets where 20's with 1st 2 card paid out. I caught a JK club flush for 50 and and then 2 blackjacks in a row. 1 of those included a bet for the dealer. I dropped another nickel for the dealer and left.

Picked up another 85 dollar win.

I also fixed the tub. It drains now. That 150 in labor please.

You'll find the S17 tables at MGM between the craps pit and the Rouge lounge. I have seen them as low as $10, but sometimes even on weeknights you can't play in that pit for less than $50.

I just finish a 6 hour grind at Gold Coast. I dug myself a deep hole early on and fought my way back. It took 4 hours to get back to near even. another hour to get even and another hour to get over the hump. I cashed out 115 ahead. they had me down twice, but I was able to catch a card and things went up from there. I did best head2head. The game was 2 deck h17 at a 5$ table. How you dig a hole 500 dollars deep at five bucks is simple. Chase your losses. I played my worst and my best.

If I include the two parlays I'm up 248.00.

My flight is delayed so I have one more shot at a big win.

Love was very cool. I enjoyed it a lot.

Sitting at the car return waiting. My flight is delayed to 940pm. I managed to grab another 165 at Gold Coast. This time it was a 300 dollar hole I had to climb out of. The trips was a positive gain. I also have 3 parlays good for 1400 max. Not sure I have any interesting photos. I didn't shot the slot machine. Don't have a killer slot ticket to share and the small profit I made isn't very impressive.

Judging my play, getting in deep and checking out on the shallow end of the pool, I could be a desired customer.

At the airport an the flight is delayed until 10pm.
