    So @MrsPTD and I are back after a LONG six months away. We're staying at Cosmo (comped) the first three nights and Cromwell (comped again, yay!) the final two.

    I didn't plan as much this trip as I normally do but have a list of options so we can decide what we're in the mood for.

    The few things that will for sure be happening are:

    - Ariana Grande concert on Sunday (splurged for floor seats)
    - @MrsPTD will be at the Wynn spa on Friday and Encore spa on Sunday.
    - Ice skating at Cosmo on Friday night.

    The gambling budget is $6,600 total. I have it split between Cosmo ($4,200) and Cromwell ($2,400). Bankroll shot:

    4864DE64-25F2-47AC-B44F-B4CA35985794.jpeg

    Goals this trip:

    - Fun and relaxation for both of us (sorely needed!)
    - Hit our first handpay
    - Reach gold status at Cosmo to get the extra comped nights for when we come for the conference again in June
    - Profit
    - Enjoy some new (to us) restaurants

    We'll be playing slots and VP exclusively at Cosmo then a mix of UTH, craps, roulette, slots, VP and some sports bets at Cromwell. I'll be gambling alone during the day on Friday and Sunday so things may get a bit of our hand...

    Only two more sleeps!

    A great time will be had, that's for sure! Also, don't judge me too bad on VP pay tables. I'm an UltX junkie now and will be giving TDB a shot this trip. I've been practicing on WinPoker so hopefully I don't make too many mistakes. I low roll on VP though and it's hard to find good games on $.10 UltX lol.

    WinPoker is the wrong program to practice UX on. Lol I only know of one app that does UX correctly. But standard VP strategy isn't bad on UX either.

    9/5 TDB UX strategy is like this in the link below.

    https://wizardofodds.com/games/vide...-d-101-d-161-d-321-d-801-d-1601-d-101-d-1601/

    I want to say some CET places offers 9/5 TDB on UX Bonus Streak. Cosmo might offer 9/5 too, definitely 9/6 isn't going to be at dimes.

    We're usually vegan (vegetarian at the very least) haha so that won't be happening. But I imagine I'll have some nachos to soak up the alcohol on Sunday lol.

    Well then, we’ll eat them ourselves! However, some good options at Eatwell, including meatless, as you probably know.

    Have fun!

    I can do that for you! It's only our second time staying there but we really enjoyed it on our last trip. It's our favorite place to play table games and it's so nice to be able to go from your room to the strip in 2 minutes.

    @MrsPTD is excited about checking out the Wynn spa on Friday. She's never been and wanted to see what it's like after the remodel. Encore is her favorite spa so I insisted that she have two spa days (which she more than deserves!)

    So normally we are all over the place but after such a hectic year I decided that I really just wanted to eat, drink and gamble for six days lol. I do have some MyKonami freeplay top redeem but am not 100% certain if I'll actually use them or not. I'll let you know if I end up making a redemption run on Sunday.

    Good luck!

    Sounds good!

    I would wander up to Cosmo to hang out but I would get the same enjoyment by just slipping $100 under the door as I walk by.

    DO NOT ENTER on that place for me lol
