Where did I do that? I used to
serve iced teas and Russians to
very specific people in the bar.
It would be politically incorrect
to mention that group specifically.
Right?



????

I can't even imagine what group of people you're referring to or how it would be politically incorrect.... Somebody help me out....

Oops. Havenít updated in a couple days. Itís all kind of a blur now. This is my last night here.

The past couple of days have been pretty much the same as the first couple: lots of Pai Gow and a couple more buffets. I think I already mentioned how impressed I was with MSS. I ate at the Mirage buffet again for lunch yesterday cause, once again, it was free from MyVEGAS.

Pai Gow has been up and down. Had some bad sessions and some good sessions. The bad sessions all lasted a while though so at least I got some entertainment out of them.

Played Face Up last night at the Wynn last night with a table of newbies. It was fun until the relief dealer came. She screwed up one hand where she skipped a spot while dealing the cards out. At the Wynn, the dealer flips their cards over as soon as they deal them to themselves so we already saw she only had a pair of 2s. The pit boss comes over and claims misdeal. I got a little pissy and told her we want to play this hand, itís only a pair of 2s! She still ruled misdeal and we didnít get to play it. Then a few hands later the relief dealer flips her cards over and deals all the other cards out and just stands there staring at the cards for a while. I was still a little grumpy at her and about to say, ďAre you going to set your hand?!Ē and she fainted! She just fell backwards and landed on her ass. It was so awkward, everyone at the table just stared at each other wide-eyed like WTF just happened. She was okay though. They moved her over to the empty tiles table to recuperate. I left shortly after that. Killed the vibe at the table BIG TIME.

Then this morning I was playing PGP at a strip casino (that shall remain nameless) with one of the worst dealers Iíve ever seen. This dealer kept screwing up just about everything you can. Mis-setting hands, paying out when they shouldnít, not knowing the proper payouts, etc. There were a couple other players at the table when I started. I corrected the first couple mistakes this dealer made in my favor (good karma?). But once the other players left and it was just me I just let the dealer pay me when they shouldnít have.

In all my trips and stays in hotels I have never gone to a spa. I believe as a Diamond with CET I have access to them. I am not even sure what I would do there. Are things free, or is it like an a la cart where you pay for everything that you do.?



For just a day pass, Diamond is free at Harrahs and Flamingo. I paid a discounted rate at the Linq and paid a little extra for their salt ďcave.Ē I donít know about other properties, but I always ask if I get a Diamond benefit.
I heart Crystal Math.

This morning I went to McDonalds for breakfast and then decided to just have one last low roll PGP session to pass the time until my flight home.

Third hand I got a royal flush. A nice way to end the trip on a positive note!

Try this sometime, I drank it myself
all the time. 3 parts vodka, 1 part
Amaretto, and half and half over
ice in a bucket. (wide mouthed
glass). Amaretto is a delicious
almond liquor. This is a super
rich drink and will get you
hammered if you have too many.
It didn't have a name then, I
called it white Godmother because
a Godmother is vodka and Amaretto.
Use milk if half and half is unavailable.



That drink with bailey's for the cream is an iron ranger at any bar here in MN. I think that's a play on the iron butterfly (vodka/kahlua/bailey's). Also, better make 'em strong because you're not going to be able to drink more than a couple because of the richness.

Thanks for the trip report, and congrats on the final win.

Not knowing PGP I'm curious what the payout is for a royal.

150-1.

They also had a $5 progressive bet that would have payed $2990 when I hit. But I never play that.
