Well, I wasn't planning on making a fall trek to Vegas but after the Orleans announced the "2022 Fall Poker Open" (which includes some tournaments right up my alley).
I checked flights (which are Super cheap atm), rooms are all comped & I'm literally spending less than $120 in travel fees.
Landing Monday the 17th and returning Friday the 21st!

You can check out updates and some previous reports on 2+2 HERE

Night one in the books, had a BLAST! went to the hotel and checked in, got settled in the room (I'm just here for one night so not alot of settling to do). Headed downstairs and won $45 one my second slot spin. Good start!

Headed to the craps table, bought in for $400 and ran that up to $600+. That decided my journey for the evening.

To the Orleans for the nightly $150 deepstack. Played several hours and got fairly short stacked. People were dropping like flies & with about 130 runners and around 40 left (5 tables). I was under the gun with AKo. Went all in for about 9bb and folded around to the big blind who thought and thought finally calling off maybe 1/4 of his stack with Q9o.

Flop K x x, turn 9, river Q. I'm out.

Time for some 4/8 O8. These tables are INSANE! I probably could have done much better, but I was drinking and gambling. In for $200, out for $230. These games are LOOSE!!

Back to the hotel about 2:30 am and craps table was full so bed time! Let's see what tomorrow contains.

Day 2-

Started with a hearty breakfast at Pyramid Cafe. Way more than I could eat, but delicious. The hash browns were the star of the show. Checked out and sat at bubble craps for an hour, broke even and got to enjoy a couple beers.

Uber'd to my new hotel, where I'll spend the rest of the trip. Checked in and gave one of my favorite slots (fat piggy) a few spins, managed 1 bonus but it still got me for $80.

To the pits . . . Anyone play craps, go to a table with one guy shooting & they just aren't right, like something is just a bit off? Yeah, happens to me alot. But hey, we were both shooting from the don't and in the end I left up by $5. I'll take it.

Off to Southpoint for some poker! Signed up for the O8 2:00 tourney and I literally played in 5 hands and drug 1/2 of a pot with the low . . . At break I was down to a single chip. Blinded down to my last hand blind, which lost, naturally.

To the cash game!
Sat in the 4/8 O8 game, (3 tables running) and got lucky eventually and won a daily promotion, flopped quad 10s. That was $500 and a hat! I later through the night managed to win a couple more promotions with the pocket 10s at $50 each. Cashed out at 2:30 am. BTW, for you fellow chip aficionados, these are the worst lol, I call them baby diaper brown!

To the pits, sat at UTH and lost nearly $200 before I hit quad 6s for a very nice bonus. Grinder and ended down $50. Craps was down another $50 before I did the Vegas classic . . .late night (early morning) $7.95 steak and eggs lulz!

Until tomorrow -

No matter how much you win or lose, you will be up overall, because that hat has "advanced breathability"!

So you got that going for you, which is nice.

Great trip report, thanks for sharing.

Day 3-

I didn't do alot of traveling around today. Had some coffee and played a couple hours of slots before heading to Resorts World. Got on the 4/8 mix list and roamed around the casino.

Lost on Craps, won on slots, won on bubble craps, lost on slots. Rinse & repeat for about 4 hours. I ended up down about a little.

Had a delicious burger with fries and a $15 IPA. The food was great (so was the beer).

Got a text that a seat was opening up so headed to the poker room for 4/8 mix. I knew the majority of the games but learned a couple new ones. Was a fun fun crew and I didn't mind losing a couple hundred before closing the game after about 7-8 hours.

Uberd back to the sleeping quarters for more craps & slots before crashing.

What did a burger and fries run at the Dawg House Saloon? That looks like almost and old fashioned diner.

What tournament are you playing in tomorrow?

Day 5

Last day, always a sad day but about ready to head home. Played a few slots before I got packed. Headed for breakfast (which was fantastic).

Got up to the room and fully packed, walked out the door with 10 minutes to spare before checkout. Headed down stairs and made my last attempt at bubble craps which I luckily ran up +over $100 profit! Nice going away gift.

Caught a rideshare to airport and did the sad walk through security and to my gate about 1/2 hour before takeoff.

Final talley: down about $700 including all expenses. Not to bad.

Parting is always such sweet sorrow . . .
See you in June 2023 Vegas, old friend.

Well, booked a trip for the middle of March. Should be a blast as the Mix Game festival is going.
I'll be back in late May / early June when the mix triple draw runs for another (+ positive +) run, hopefully ! That's my jam !
