    Well, after following so many great trip reports and living vicariously through everyone else’s Vegas experiences, I thought it was about time for me to chip in and try my hand at posting a trip report…long time reader, first time reporter! Admittedly, the mega trip report that many of us followed last week will be a tough act to follow, and I’m sure my trip report will be much more tame, but I’ll give it a shot!

    I’m heading out on Friday morning for 7 nights at Cosmo. For this trip, I combined a 4 night comp offer with my 2 annual Identity tier comp nights. I was planning on booking a 7th night at casino rate, but my host was kind enough to throw in an extra comped night, so that was a nice surprise. That’s just one of the many reasons I love Cosmo and have been a loyal visitor for the last few years. Even though my level of play is unassuming and I’m essentially a nobody by most strip standards, Cosmo has been consistent and generous with offers, and getting a bonus comped night this trip was just icing on the cake.

    Aside from plenty of VP and video keno at Chandelier, and slots at Cosmo and elsewhere on the strip, there’s not too much on the agenda, although I am planning on going to The Summit Main Event on Saturday night at The D, and checking out the G2E exhibits on Tuesday or Wednesday. Also, I have family living in Vegas, and as usual, I’ll be meeting up with them throughout my visit. Other than that, and a couple of meals that we’ve planned, it’s going to be mostly a “play it by ear” kind of trip.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who follows along and checks in on my rookie trip report, and I’ll do my best to keep it live, or at least semi-live. Wheels up early Friday morning, and barring any delays, I should be landing just after 9 AM Vegas time. Keeping my fingers crossed that Tapatalk will cooperate with me and others reporting from Vegas in the coming days. Stay tuned!

    Good luck!!! I will be parked at the Chandelier bar myself from the 11th to the 13th! Maybe we will run into each other!

    Thanks! It looks like there will be a few other fellow VFers at Cosmo this weekend and into next week, so I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on the other live trip reports as well.

    Identity Platinum,
    I'm there 14-18th, not sure if I will do a trip report this time, but I should be parked at a wonder 4 boost for most of the trip. I'm a girl, glasses, and just dyed my hair, so its really dark, hopefully it lightens a bit by monday.. sigh. I'll be the one shivering and scarfing back coffees.

    Thanks for the info, tringlomane! In the past, I’ve usually played DDB DSTP at Chandelier and probably didn’t even notice that TDB was an option, but I’m definitely going to give it a try this trip. Major strategy differences for TDB don’t seem to be too numerous compared to DDB, so hopefully it won’t be too difficult to adjust.

    Yeah the changes aren't bad unless it's 9/7. But Chandelier is only 9/5, so there are no pesky 3 to a flush holds. Break 2s-4s full, open ended straights beat 55-TT, and Ace beats QJoff are the biggest changes AND hold the kicker with trips!

    Thanks for all of the well wishes, and a special shout out to my friends in Canada. Nice to have you along for the ride, @Foofighter!

    Today’s flight was originally supposed to be nonstop to LAS, but Southwest changed the flight schedule a week or so after I booked to include a stop in Denver. I was a little leery, as snow in early fall isn’t uncommon for Denver, and sure enough, they had their first snowstorm of the season yesterday. Fortunately, we’re not expecting any delays in or out of DEN this morning, so I definitely dodged a bullet there. Hoping for continued smooth travels and an on time arrival in Vegas!

    Ugh-southwest. I have not had good luck with them recently. At least you’re almost there.
