    So it has been a long time since I did a full on blow by blow TR. I've been on a losing streak so I think I will change it up by going back to my old ways with a comprehensive TR.

    Let me start by giving a short recap of my disastrous 2 day 500k thanksgiving trip at Aria.

    The plan was for a two week trip staying at Aria and playing at Aria and CET. Bankroll was 500k FM. I was up about 80k playing a mixture of roulette and baccarat. During my roulette win I was betting about 20k a hand (spread out in 3 complete bets and neighbors, so covering a lot of numbers depending on the last number hit), when there was this English gentleman that walks up to the table and starts betting 200k a spin (100k each table, incomplete dozens the middle section, for roulette terms use google)

    Since the middle section is where my big guns are (17/20), i won about 70k and he won about 1m. Now I'm not usually impressed by other big players, but man this guy was the biggest roulette player that I had the personal pleasure of playing with and seeing first hand.

    So the lesson here is don't fight above your weight.

    The second day we are now good roulette buddies and feeling invincible. We play and went on this horrendous dry spell of not hitting the middle. He proceeds to dump 3m and I dump my entire fm and winnings. When you write a last marker for an uneven amount (it was 37k), you know you hit rock bottom.

    So after discounts 13%, fm bonus 15k, and airfare 22k...my bill came to 398k. So I got about 20% back so I'm not complaining. But I was so pissed I flew out the next morning. All my friends coming in had full access to my comps but I spent the next week at home playing the Division.

    To be continued

    So now that I had three weeks to shake it off, I'm back for my usual xmas to super bowl trip. Flying in and out of course but pretty much a continual trip starting mid December, family flying in xmas and NYE, going through parts of CES, then CNY, and then finally culminating in SB weekend. By that time I'm usually twenty pounds heavier or thinner, depending on the degeneracy and frequency of food and golf outings.

    One added bonus this year is the added anticipation of Trump tax cuts and the current stock market exuberance, spending my tax savings and stock gains before he's even in office haha.

    The Plan

    Wynn 1m front money and line, they have a baccarat tournament late December

    Aria 1m front money and line, they have also a baccarat tournament in December

    CET, going to try and do seven stars in a day or something...for all my slot play

    Games

    Roulette is crack but I'm a crack addict. Complete bets galore

    Craps last time I tried does don't with a 60k average at Wynn and it worked but with some questions at settlement. This time tried it at Aria with a lower average and worked better so will do mostly Aria.

    Baccarat, going to be like sailboat, enuf said

    Golf and food

    Lots and lots of golf and good food, but will be watching my diet and exercising more...want to be like UK, enuf said

    Concerts

    Lots of events this year, looking forwards to Maroon 5.

    Thanks Riders, for some reason I can't seem to sit at a VP machine too long...I'm too slow. Put me in front of Cleo 2 and no matter how big I will spin.

    Would love to see some big roulette hits. Do you hit and run with roulette? I find if I hit 3 or 4 spins in a row I will walk after first spin loss. Usually at that point I'm up anywhere between 100x my buy in (or better depending on if it hits my main numbers)
    Good luck either way

    Some thoughts on Wynn.

    They really really suck.

    For my program, no comps on clubs, no comps on spa.

    No comps on retail. Bad game selection on craps.

    Taking away the golf course is the last straw...I'm going there for the next few free tournaments and will only play a little...famous last words...

    You would have been floored like I was when this guy was betting the incomplete dozens for 100k every single spin at two tables.

    He gets paid about 400k plus if the 17/20 comes. All the other ones in the middle range from 200-300k. Fun to watch for sure...makes my 20k a spin look very pathetic haha.

    To answer your question, yes I do walk away when I'm up. The problem is to get up in the first place.

    I can understand. Something about VP that relaxes me ... now slots just make me want to go nuts .. probably because I don't know what the hell I am trying to get.

    That's what I say every trip! I'm excited about this trip!

    I'm in vegas from 12/15 on. Will leave town if I hit my Theo or win some money, spend it all and come back . That's the new strategy

    And that is what drives me nuts ... it should be mind numbing and just what I need but doesn't seem to work that ... I can now play Cleo and Cleo 2 because I know I need the scatters and understand some of it... but that took me a year.. I am slow that way. :)
