I am heading to Las Vegas for 8 days Feb 14 - 22 for my annual veterinary conference and poker bender. I will be attempting a semi-live trip report depending on how well Tapatalk is working. If that fails (likely), you can follow me on twitter @k9dr. Since my wife will not be joining me this time, I will be slumming it at 3 different hotels - Hampton Inn for the first Saturday night, then on to The Orleans for 4 nights, and finally at Casino Royale for the last 3 nights.

I usually play poker for 8-10 hours each day - primarily 1/3 NL at Aria and Mandalay Bay + tournaments at Aria and Venetian. If I am running well, I will play some 2/5 NL and some 1/2 PLO. I also hope to play in some of the Venetian Deepstack tourneys if I have enough time.

Other than my conference and poker, I have no real plans - just 8 days of freedom and degeneracy. :cool:

If you get a chance to eyeball the blue $1 chips at Paris and Binion's give an indication of their condition for a July harvest

Looking forward to the reports, Mark! It's good to live vicariously through others.

For those who don't know, this man is the nuts of all trip reporters (well, k9dr and moose HU for the crown.) If necessary, I may have to join Twidder just to partake.

Just don't leave us hanging this time Mark. ;)

Sorry I missed you - would have been fun to meet up.

Good luck!

Wishing you lots of run good!

Hope you have a ton of run good!

Thanks for the good luck - I'll take that over skill any day. :p

Time to knock the dust off the Twitter feed! Degening vicariously.

I will give Tapatalk a chance first, but likely end up on twitter.

I will check them out if I get there.

Good luck! The Wynn has some nice tournaments and is a good place to play at as well.

I like tourneys at the Wynn - bubbled last time I played there. The daily tournaments don't get as many runners as Aria or Venetian, so the tourney usually only lasts 5 or 6 hours instead of 9 or 10 hours. They also have the lowest admin fee of all the dailies.

Flying to LV today (Thursday 2-12) for a Valentine's day weekend with my wife. Staying at Wynn but right now I'm planning on playing Sunday afternoon at Aria. Txt if you want to have lunch or just to know where I'm playing so you can win some of my money. Good luck to us both.

I will text you when I figure out my schedule on Sunday - lunch and/or poker sounds good.

Love TSA pre-check - skip the lines - leave your shoes and jacket on - leave everything in your bag - like flying used to be.

Sarasota is a really small airport, but they have a cool aquarium. [

I hate the TSA. When I visit my family in Arizona we always go to Vegas in the summer. It takes about 3.5 hours from the time you leave your home until you are waiting for baggage. The drive is about 5 hours. That is a no brainer and all the liquid and chips you can carry!
