On my way out to Atlantic City for an overnight trip with some friends. First casino trip of the year. Iíll post a few updates. Iím most curious to see what Ballys is like under the new owners. I expect this trip to be mostly craps, PGT, VP and possibly some BJ.
If anyone gives you 10,000 to 1 on anything, you take it. If John Mellencamp ever wins an Oscar, I am going to be a very rich dude.

Day 1A

Arrived at Trop. Check in line was long so bellhop for bags. Played PGT for about 30 mins. Alone for almost all of it. Won $115. Dealer was competent but not talkative. Craps looked to be all $25 so I didnít play. Walked over to Caesars. 9/6 years quarter JOB was full so walked to Ballys. Had to get new players card. Line took 30 mins. Very slow. Got $15 freeplay. Played some 50 cent and 1 dollar 9/6 JOB. Cashed out up $50 or so. Ballys took PGT out of the high limit room. Seems like an odd choice. High limit was packed with Bacc tables. Maybe 10 full tables. I havenít seen it like that as far back as I can remember.

Sanity check: WOO 96 JOB simple strategy lists ď3 to a straight flushĒ higher than several categories, including 2 unsuited high cards. Does that mean any 3 to a straight flush or only consecutive? Eg, 4d,7d,8d, Kh, Jsókeep the diamonds? Or is it only 3 consecutive suited cards? I thought I knew this but now second guessing myself.

That's what makes the simple strategy simple. It lumps all straight flushes together at the expense of play accuracy.

Day 1B

Walked back to Caesars. Got a seat at the quarter 96 JOB. Progressive at $1016. Not positive but still $16. Ordered 5 drinks and drank 4.5 drinks and dropped $100 over 90 mins or so. One 4OAK. Nothing bigger. At one point I held an Ac and took a drink on the draw. Saw Kc, Qc and Jc. My hand was over the right most card and I heard the sounds play for a winning hard. It was a club but not the royal. Oh well. Walked back to Trop to meet my friends for dinner. FWIW I did see a $25 S17 BJ table. That was a bit surprising. Waiting for dinner reservation now.

End of day 1

Dinner at Carmineís In Trop. Fine for what it was. Chicken Marsala had a very thick Marsala sauce. Then back to PGT. Played for a little over an hour and had the table entirely to myself. Banked every other hand. Lost $170.

The $25 S17 3/2 BJ game looks to be 4 decks. May play that tomorrow.

I think itís about 3/4 mile. Maybe 15 minutes leisurely walking. The boardwalk itself is depressing (as is pretty much all of Atlantic City) but itís convenient.

Itís like a 20-30 min walk.

The Jitney guys ask like $18 for the trip.

If you are casino hopping on the boardwalk, the tram is the quickest way. $4 per trip or like $9 for a day pass.
