As I posted in the Meet in the Suite thread I arrived late to the party as as I was trying to spend Father's Day with my kids. I had booked a late night flight into Vegas, however Southwest had other ideas and moved my flight up 8 hours! So instead I had to leave my house at 9 in the morning, hop on a plane from Memphis to Chicago. There I dropped off my 6 year old with his grandparents to spend a week with them and then enjoyed the 2 hour delay before arriving into Vegas yesterday at 530pm. My 6 year old got quite the first night as my parents had tornados touch down less than 20 minutes from their home!



Unfortunately that wasn't the end of the travel runbad as it took 2 hours of standing in line at the rental counter to get a car. Then because I arrived to the hotel late the Diamond check in line was closed so I ended up having to wait in another long line to check in to the hotel. However, I was able to meet up with @Schmendr1ck at this point. As I hadn't eaten we ended up heading straight to dinner, Mexican. We inquired about how big the $20 nachos were and the waitress said enough for 2. We were skeptical, but decided to split it. She wasn't wrong and for the record the nachos won.



After all day of traveling I wanted to just chill and take it easy so we grabbed a seat in the Ballys 1/3 game. I managed to get half the stacks in with KK vs. top pair, turn he binks his two pair and I rebuy. Later get it all in vs. a guy who I though was EU based on his accent with AK. Bink my A and double up. I win someore pots and go from stuck $400 to up $500. Then I get coolered by Mr. EU when I hit top pair of Js with AJ and call all 3 streets. His QQ is good to double up through me. A few hands later I defend the BB with J9cc and CR, bet, bet a ccc board. EU calls the whole way with K4cc.... We had about $400 more behind and I am thankful to save the remainder of my stack. EU locks up after this, pulls out his computer to play on WSOP online and that's the game gets very meh.
We play for a while longer and call it at 230am or 430 for me after being up 21 hours

This was one of the weirdest and rudest things I have ever seen at a poker table. The dude literally just whipped out a laptop and started playing that game while doing little bit taking up a seat in ours.

Yesterday, I needed rakeback to make a profit in the poker room. I played a few hours at Planet Hollywood and cashed out -$12.

In my evening session at Bally's, I cashed out for -$2 and a pair of stinky armpits. The air conditioning was on the fritz and for a good part of the evening it was probably 80 in the poker room.

We also found out that Bally's had no jackpot of any kind even though they take $2 from each pot. That money goes to food comps and free rolls for the local regs.

Bite me, Bally's.

Couldn't get much going at Bellagio 1-3 today. Most of these chips disappeared before dinner.

The 1/3 PLO at Aria was very soft the night I played. Lots of money committed with questionable hands. You should do well.

They called me for PLO and I stayed at holdem as this game is full of action. If the game gets bad I'll switch over.

This is what folding at $3/orbit looks like..... Had very few starting hands, and even few pots pushed for HOURS. Meanwhile we watched the table fish make the nuts ~70% of hands.

That sounds just like my experience - very few good starting hands and watching massive pots being pushed to Q522 o_O

After losing a buyin in the grindy 1-3 NLHE at Aria, I decided to invest some of my trip winnings to take a shot at the 1-2 500 max PLO. It was an eye opener.

I was playing very snug, and my first table got short quickly and broke in less than an hour. @Payback and I both moved to a new table where the action was significantly better, and even I was going to get paid from a couple of the guys at the table if I could make a hand.

Most of the night was just bleeding $15-25 at a time seeing multiway flops and whiffing. I played two pots of substance and lost both: the one mentioned above against @Payback (he got my hand wrong, I had AQQT one suit vs his AAJ9). The other one was against the worst player at the table. Nearly half of our stacks went in pre with my AAJ6 double suited vs his AJ77 one suit. Of course he spiked the 567 flop and stacks went in.

I'm still up for the trip, and while I took a thrashing last night, at least I did it on someone else's money.

We tried going to Hash House at the Rio and it was closed so that was the bad news. We ended up going over to The Broken Yolk just out of town and had a delicious breakfast. We ended up shopping for some scotch and bourbon at some really great prices at the liquor store next door. @Schmendr1ck went 3/3 in paying for breakfast via credit card roulette this morning. Thanks for breakfast!

Afterwards we headed over to the Venetian to play. I started in a 2/4 (not a typo) game $600max game and shortly afterward got moved to the 3/5 $1200 max that's running.

I’m trying to figure out how big of a tipper you are that the waitress identifies you as B:hearts:

Average probably. I sent the picture to my wife earlier and she asked the same thing. She refused to believe it's my dashing good looks.
