    I really think players in limit poker like to build castles. I'm the exception to the rule. Also I feel like more chips in the pot can loosen players up psychologically.

    Yes
    Limit games are all about lots of chips and the structure is a 4/8 structure so it is easier not to use bigger denomination chips.
    Some places, commerce and Blackhawk, use multiple dominations in their bigger games.

    Not to be a dick...but you bought in $6000, and cashed out like $6600? so you basically won one pot?

    Ha. Count again. There is ~$8400 there, so won a bit more than a rack.

    So decided to switch it up today. I have a German friend who is here for the wsop and he convinced me to play the Aria daily tournament with him. Just registered now so hope to run it up!

    Good news is that I played some 3 card poker while I was waiting for my seat and almost won my buyin

    Thanks Bronco. Busted out short of the money, getting my last chips in with A9 vs A2 on a 229 flop. I raised pre and only had about 10bbs left at that point. Tourney was fairly soft and had a fast structure.
    My German friend has a ton of chips with a few tables left, so hope he takes it down. Those Germans can play poker. Haha

    So today is my last full day here. My schedule isn't going to work to extend the trip, so no tournament today. Haven't played a hand of blackjack since the first night, so was able to lock that in at least.

    Playing 40/80 at the moment. On the 80 list, but not a great lineup.

    Great Report! Gotta love EggSlut. The first time I ate there I'm pretty sure my mouth had an orgasm. LOL!

    Poker would be fun to try. I've never sat at a table against fellow gamblers in Vegas. Maybe I should try it. Who knows? Beginners luck could win me the whole thing....;) How did you end up @Righty?

    Lol. Maybe read a beginner book or two, which can probably make you a winning player at the low stakes :) It's a much more social game and I've met some really cool people.

    Recap:

    So made it back to Charlotte. Overall, had a great trip and already looking forward to planning my next one.

    Gambling-

    Blackjack: final stats at Cosmo were 9.25 hrs played, with $1004 avg bet. Ended up winning $17k there and should be set on rooms/comps for awhile! Played some shorter/random blackjack sessions at Bellagio/Aria, and lost about $6k on those.

    Random Carny games: for some reason, I always have to play let it ride and 3-card poker. Lost $1800 doing so, but had fun I guess. Haha

    Slots: lost about $600 in miscellaneous slot adventures. Fairly standard, but no decent hits to share.

    Poker-

    Only played 3 sessions, winning a total of $1k. Not very happy with that result, but games were tougher than usual with only 1-2 spots at each table.

    Food-

    STK was great. Had the wagyu, which I would recommend. Also had a couple great cabernets, O'Shaughnessy 2013 being my favorite.
    Lemongrass (twice). Great as always.
    Eggslut - gaucho can't be beat
    Holsteins - late night milkshake may have been the best/worst decision I made all weekend.

    Thanks again for following along!

    Winning trips are always good news. Coupled with good food, wine and fun times they're even better.

    Thanks for taking us along.

    Agreed. Didn't see a good 80 game during my week in town.

    Thanks for the great TR Righty...As others have said, the poker reports are really interesting, and somewhat rare to see. I still haven't quite gotten up the nerve to try poker yet, maybe after reading enough reports like this, I will! :)
