    I'll start a TR since I'm going to go sometime this month, I think. I have a flight set to go today, but Mrs pphold is home sick so not sure if I can go. Get this RT $158. Or I can go on Saturday for $260.

    I've got super itchy palms right now and jonesing to play blackjack.

    I've started to play on my online account and this is the crappy part. $1min and $50 max. I'm just flat betting $50 max.

    Here is a video.

    Some VF members will be in Vegas. and VM is almost always there.

    I'm hoping for a big win. I talked to natedog666 and have agree to only use my winnings from the start of CNY as my only BR. I'm going to ride the winnings till I hit 6 figures or till it is gone. Not going to risk any more of my own money.

    Great strategy for the BR pphold!! Not so hard to get a win along the way, but HANGING onto it is always my demise!! If you can use your win to finance some upcoming trips, meet with friends, eat well and have fun- then you can't complain too much if you end up giving it back!

    Hope Mrs pphold is feeling better! Your flight costs are crazy cheap. So jealous!

    Keep us posted!

    Thanks VC. I was flat betting $50 a hand and was down $1k and won it back. at one point, I called VM and said this is stupid I've lost 3 rt tickets to Vegas playing Blackjack online. I finally got to even and stop. Then I went on it again and won $100.

    I have next week booked for $177 and the week after for $117RT. I know Crazy airfare. and get this is all on AA.

    Don't get me started on what it would cost to fly on the discount airlines.

    Very unlike pphold. I have no hotel booked and two airline tickets.

    No online. Only let me split aces once.

    I'm with VegasChic on the online games, unless I'm fooling around and playing the free games the online gaming for money takes away a lot of the incentive for why I personally gamble which is the suites, spas, dining, drinks and shows. I might consider online gambling if they will send a cocktail server to my house. ;)

    Hope your wife is feeling better soon so you can ahead as planned with your trip.

    Me too! I don't even go to locals because you get NOTHING for your hard earned money! Online casinos? Not a chance! Besides, been there done that years ago.

    I know very unpphold I might be without a room the whole trip.


    I did text my host to see if they will be there and being a big fight weekend I might be SOL. I guess I can crash on VM's sofa


    I can't believe I have not booked a. Room.

    I'm thinking I'll fly in. Hit and win big and fly home

    So no room needed.

    This is funny I checked my offers and When I try to book Aria it won't let me. LOL but I can book Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, Mirage or any other property for Tomorrow.

    I can get at Executive King suite or a Stay well suite or Grand? anyone know the difference?

    going move my flights but still have not booked my room.

    V/P is one option, MLIFE property or Caesar's.

    Not going to book Wynn/Encore. But might check SLS or Trop if all else fails.

    VM's couch still looks like an option. LOL

    Good luck!! If you don't get VM's couch, I encourage you to try V/P- I haven't seen you go there yet!!

    i have not stayed at V/P in over 10 years. My host there responded with at Fortuna Suite and full RFB.

    I'm trying to be good so not sure if I want to book that on limited play.

    VM's couch is looking promising. LOL


    i did check CET and MLIFE and there are some suite at Excalibur, Luxor and Monte Carlo but I'm not going to stay there or maybe I should? Who knows.

    Wow, I still have not booked a room.

    I'm still not sure I'll get on the plane but I do have a ticket and now it is not refundable but don't care at this point. oh by the way the ticket was only $140 RT on AA. I know crazy right?

    The fortuna suite is very roomy. You'd have a hard time finding something wrong with it I bet!

    Out of curiosity, could you not just let the host know you want the basic suite and just not go crazy on the RFB? As long as you cover the comp, they should be fine. I always downgrade my rooms as we're in them so little I hate it using up my comp space with it. I don't have RFB officially, but every trip have managed to get every penny covered so same end result. At least that way you don't feel the pressure.

    I could that is a good idea. I tell them that and they say there is not much of a difference and since I'm the only one going, and won't use too much of the comp.

    I'll see I still have to get one more report done or I can't go.

    I know you are asking why am I on here? The computer is working so I have some down times before I compile the data and run the check and verifications.

    Love computers They do so much that all i have to do is put it in the correct format and then run check and then compile. This use to take days and now i can do it in less than 30 mins.
