Yes it was 3:2 double after split and you couldn't resplit aces. $5 minimum. The card fell horrible. I got down $85 then come back up for a $30 loss. I'll probably hit one more craps session and call it a night.

My phone died last night so I couldn't send a update. I ran into a buzz saw!! Lost $100 on the craps table. Switched to Bac and lost another $25. Back to craps and slowly bled another $50.

I may play one more session this mornng before leaving.

Trip is now -$140.

I've done worse. When you factor in the experience of the lobster bisque and the steak, this is pretty much a win :-)

Played another quick craps session after breakfast. Broke even trip is done.

Trip -$40.

All in all a great trip. If I counted the comps I received I would be ahead for the trip.

I played with some characters the last 24 hours. Seen a lot of money lost and very little won. On my last craps session I was up $30 and put it out to try to walk with a win but I lost it. So close!!

I had my first real experience with DD BJ. The min was $5 but everyone in the table was betting $10. I was the only one playing $5. At one point in the DD game I had a $20 bet out. I drew 11 against the dealer 10. Doubled down. Dealer flips a ten I drew a 5. I did win a couple of $25 bets to climb back a little.

My wife had some great rolls of the dice. She hit all small once and only liked one point rolling every number. She rolled every number but one on the all tall and one on the all small twice after that. She can shoot them bones!! She saved our trip from being much worse than it was. And she broke even for the trip. I only played two places this trip. I never even stepped in horseshoe or roadhouse this trip.

Crowds where much smaller than what I am used to. Comps are tighter than they have been in the past, but still looser than anywhere else I know of. One of the dealers said several places where barely hanging on. Hollywood only had half of the craps table opened. It was full so I didn't play. I really do think the market is hurting bad. Time will tell how it plays out.

Excellent report sir.

Glad your wife can throw the bones. Very good to have a partner in crime so to speak.

Yes sir. She says tosses better than me. I rarely ever toss anymore and almost always bet the don't unless she is rolling.
