    Vegas monkey, I believe you and I also have a 6 degree of separation. One of my favorite people is Randy (wynn craps dealer) and we started talking about your website. Randy and I have been together for going on 20 years, and he thinks you and I will get along great when we finally meet. #smallworld

    If you start saying 'son of a biscuit' at the Wynn, they might have an idea of who I might be.

    Looking forward to a meet in the future.

    Agree 1000%! Remember back in November when a poster from VMB came up with his wife or GF to you and I and said are we broncofn and plee? Sorry I dont remember the posters name but he said he doesnt post much but he knew who we were. This was in the cosmo high limit room before they moved the vp and slots to the new room.

    Hope he joined this board

    Not sure about other people but for me I made my decision to do a live TR after reading many from Packer and Tbone.

    And because of those reports I did I met with many VMBers and of course Vegas Monkey who I had some very fun times with. I cannot tell you guys how happy I was meeting the people and how well VM treated me, a total stranger back then.

    I told my wife about it and she was like "this is scary, why would this Vegas Monkey ever want to meet you?" I told her because we share the same love for Vegas and gaming in general.

    Thanks guys for keeping my life entertained, as many of you know I don't get to go to Vegas very often, so can only live through you guys. It's such a pleasure to be part of the community.

    Now I just hope my next Vegas trip happens sooner than later.

    Lastly, Sir Packer, sorry to hijack the thread a little bit, I don't think I need to say it again how nice this report is, like all of your other ones. You are truly one of the cornerstones to this board and I wish you better luck next trip. Who knows, maybe one day I will also get to shake your hands, cheers.

    I have seen no sign of changes at wynn. At least at my low-mid level of play. As far as I'm concerned they are definitely using theo and not losses solely. Next trip will be at Aria. If my host (who im close to) tells me theo means little and I need to lose in order to get comps, guess what? I won't go and I won't be back to Vegas anytime soon. Don't see this happening at all though. I'm sure they will just comp 20-30% of theo instead if 40-50% and raise internal comp rates. Shadow from 500 to 750 and so on.
    Don't you think it is impossible for casinos to use losses only for comps? Not going to happen.

    I am not 100% sure about what MLIFE is using for comps but I do know for a fact that the Hosts were compensated on Theo last year and this year it is on Losses from their players. I get the feeling they don't like that anymore than we do.

    Side note to the high limit slot pull participants.... I'm sorry I had to leave a little early. I felt bad. As some of you know I had 16 to tend to and they were waiting at dinner. It was great seeing some old friends and great meeting new friends. You all were kind and very fun. Can't wait till next time. Special thank you to VM for putting this on. And evoni for her knowledge and kindness. Also thank you to Riders for saving us! Please, Let's do this again! High limit VP push sound really fun.

    Surely at some point common sense has to kick in for these guys though right? It seems logical to me that if they squeeze comps it would focus on certain types of comps , rooms for example are basically a great thing to comp because the Cost of Operation is so much lower than the rack rate they charge especially for the high end suites, therefore the perceived value of the comp is so much higher than the reality. They would be stupid to start being frugal across the board and scaring players off by being so strong armed in their approach to penny pinching.

    No apologies needed on my end, I understand completely about dinner and friend obligations! Was great to meet you and I'm looking forward to the next time we are both in Vegas at the same time. One of these HL pulls we will win really big instead of breaking even. :)

    Also great trip report, I'm still catching up and yours are always a terrific read!

    Since it takes me so long to get a trip report out these days, let me tag on to your thanks and say thanks to VM for organizing and Riders you did indeed save us, I hope you are around for the next HL pull too!

    No apologies needed. We all understand how that goes. Thanks for taking the time out to join in. Great seeing you again. Next time a few drinks together. Felt like I was the only one drinking at that point. :)

    Packer, awesome TR, as always! How about we hit some Pechanga VP and get those losses back! I watched the VP vid and that machine was just F'ing with you! Even if you had made the correct holds on most, if not all, of the mistake hands, that machine still would have bricked you. I hope that session does not deter you from VP in the future!

    I have an East Coast buddy in town and we will be at Pechanga all day/night, on Friday...come on down! We are going to Huntington Beach on Saturday and then he flies out of LAX on Sunday.

    I really would come out but have the little boy. Sounds great though. I can do it a week from friday? I played a lot more that I didn't video and was getting the hang of it. I Like VP much more then the sluts. Is that how it is for you too? Although for some reason I like the 25 WOF.. I played the 100 hand in the high limit too. That was fun! Hit a few good hands but lost there too. Thank you by the way for following. Sew you soon.
