Guess who's back...?

So...left a cold NY morning behind and ventured out west to Las Vegas for a mid-winter getaway
For those of you following the action from my SLS or Golden Nugget thread...the update is that both casinos sent limos to the airport but I informed SLS that their host had not gotten back to me despite numerous calls/texts/emails and that when I called their reservations they had nothing reserved in my name...as such, I reached out to my new GN host who was happy to ensure I had accommodations...

I have checked in and am now unpacking...I need some caffeine badly--I believe my dad is already wandering around Fremont street and getting a lay of the land...

I will keep everyone here updated and will be sure to take plenty of photos along the way

as I have not yet played, the trip is EVEN

Sat down for my first session:

Was up about 500 within the first 15 hands.
Raised bet to 200 and was dealt a 6,5 v dealer 9
I doubled and was dealt an 8 for 19
Dealer turned over an Ace for 20

Things then went back and forth and I pushed two hands of 20 in a row followed by a third 20 where the dealer had an Ace,6 and drew a 4 for 21
Got a natural the next hand then played the roller coaster for about 20 hands - I was eventually dealt a 5,5 v dealer 10
I doubled and was dealt an Ace
The dealer had a Queen underneath
YAY!

Taking a dinner break...


Trip is +1k

Good Luck Ace.

2D, S17 has been very cold to me.

I closed out this afternoon with a $200 20 being taken by a four card dealer 21. I started complaining, vehemently, about losing or pushing ALL my 20s. Hesitating about placing another bet following this loss I said: I surrender. The pitboss, unknown to me, was standing behind my right shoulder and said: You're not allowed to surrender In this game.

I will try to find a 6D S17 game tonight.
