The suitcase is out again
I spoke to dave and he’s off up to Vegas 2 nd March to 7 th March so I got the old pop over invite
Virgin wanted £1500 economy £3500 PE - so that ruled that plan out !no miles seats either !
Last minute wanted £950 flying indirect in economy 17 hrs ! n staying at treasure island
I got PE for £1033 flying to Phoenix via Seattle PE in virgin
comfort on Delta Seattle to Phoenix 2 hrs 9 mins
Returning Delta comfort Phoenix to Atlanta
virgin PE to London for £1033
I think that was a good deal ?
Then a Phoenix to Vegas roadtrip with double d !
In time for the Wynn classic series http://wynnpoker.com/wynn_classic.cfm
So all looking good for a trip out next Thursday

Long flight made much easier by Premium economy to Seattle
The hour n a half to immigrate there was poor
Then it was a 2 hour flight on delta to Phoenix

Straight into daves newish 5 series bmw and head out to Scottsdale a 30 min drive via in n out burger bar
Friday n Saturday spent visiting a golf store .
Dicks sporting goods
Apple store in downtown Phoenix
Local Italian restaurant for dinner
Saturday tonto restaurant n country club with his friends Tom and Patricia ,
For a great fillet mignon

Up early Sunday for the 300 mile drive to Vegas
Which coming from the flat fens I find very scenic
Lots of big cacti as you leave Phoenix to desert scrub land surrounded by hills / mountains and the Joshua tree parkway
We stop at 3 places roughly every 100 miles to piss n drink more piss so we have to stop again :lol:

Arriving in Vegas at 1-2 pm we get checked in to the 15 th floor
I head over to the encore while Dave has a lay down

Poker next

$1/2 blinds in the cash area there’s 3-4 tables
2-3 $2\5 games
$5\10 1-2 games
$ 10/20 1 game
In the slightly raised area obv vip $100\200 plo / mixed

The poker room is the best in Vegas plenty of floor staff good dealers nice valets
Buy ins are a bit on the larger size though
Tourneys
Sunday Mon tues are $400 buy in for $40 k gtd attracting 140-180 runners. A day 13/4 k$ to th3 winner 16-20 places paid
Weds seniors - over 50 s $400 buy in for $25 k gtd

So I join $1\2 with $300 it’s just starting a mixture of players male n a couple of women mixed ages
I’m in bb with king 9 diamonds 5 limpers see a flop of kk6
I check someone bets 2 others call 25$ as I do
Turn is a 9
I lead for 35$
Youngster calls
Plus one other
I check a Queen river
As does the other two behind me - lesson one bet your hand they’re donkey enough to call

A hand I’m not in
Paki on seat one seems a bit creative / flairy play capabilities
Versus
Billy the kid / trainee donk
Flop has 3 middle diamonds on
Billy the donk announces all in
Flairy paki snaps
Billy the donk turns over the ace of diamonds ten clubs for nothing at all ace high
Flairy pakis little face lights up as it’s a big big pot thank goodness -and some one will be glad of them chips ,
But doesn’t show
Dealer puts out a diamond on the river
Billy the donk now has the nuts
Cue some table thumping scowling n muttering from flairy paki
All quite funny
I laugh n say nice hand well played kid
Rest of table pull various grimace type expressions

So next hand billy the donk raises to $15 ace king
All fold except for the fat bloke in the bowler hat in the big blind who calls with king ten diamonds
Flop is ten high with a diamond
Fatty bowler check calls $25
Turn us a king
Fat bowler chaeck raise $50 bet to $165
Billy the donk calls immediate
River a 2? Something inconsequential
Fatty bowler jams 125$ all in - remembering that last time he checked n got no action recognises that this kid is curious
Billy the recently muffed up doubled up snap calls
Two pair says fatty bowler
Cue some swearing n chundering from billy the kid

Dave n goose head to Venetian for dinner from treasure island
Tony’s deceided to play Caesars 7 pm $120 buy in - discovers it starts an hour early at 6 pm to confuse idiots
Fatty bowler notices two reasonably competent younger guys eyeing his juicy $1100 stack as he’s been on a heater
So he cashed out at 615 pm n heads to Caesars using Uber as he’s too fat n lazy to walk
He has a few gin n tonics out of 25 runners gets 4 th place for $366
Blows 300 on roulette on way out though
But is still up
Heads back to treasure island using Uber for a couple of coronas n bed time
Up on the day
Not wanting to be too late as it’s a $400 buy in tomorrow at the encore

More later

Fatty bowlers first out of the tourney
Kq from the big blind flopped 2 pair kq x flop
But mr button vv active player had ace king n chased his ace to the river
Eventually he craftily checked as did I
Next hand he has ace king
I’m now short stacked like 8-9 blinds max with 77
He raises I jam he cal ace in door
Gg me
Previous he’s had 10-7 ,10-2 6-7 , a variety of junk but I make a stand n he had me dominated
Dave n goose are still in grinding away goose went v deep but no cashes
Dave came 8 th for $1890 so he was delighted

So it was offto 1/2 $ with $300 for me
Whilst keeping an eye on me grandads
They’re prone to busting out n wandering off shell shocked n chuntering to theirselves - bless em it’s their age !
As indeed the goose did first day out n disappeared like a puff of smoke 💨
So I’m playing cash usual motley collection of players
Aces got me almost a full double up against an older guy who’s been in a lot of pots n reloaded a few times
A youngish guy takes his place
I raise king 8 clubs utg as you do
Get the usual 4-5 callers
Flop k82 all clubs
I’m not folding I deceided
Check check
Chinky bird in cut off bets $25
We all call - well 3 of us
Turn is a brick no club no king
Chinky bird bets $45
Newguy to my right makes it $125
While im thinking he chats to the attractive trainee lawyer woman on seat 9 who’s rented a room off him previously also discover he’s an aria dealer - so I figure he knows what he’s doing !
So I flat 125$
Chinky folds
River a lovely king
I’ve got top house
All in with ace jack clubs he announces 185$ ish
I have him covered
I slo roll him a bit
Then say call
Nut flush he proclaims
Have you filled up ?
Yup I announced
Cue more effing n jeffing
I won a couple more pots to go to 1150$
Then it starts going backwards so I cash out $990
N wait for Dave

It’s too late at 2330 for a nice steak so it’s a couple of celebratory coronas
I deceided $400 tourneys are too big a buy in for me
So elect to play Caesars 2 pm tourney next day
Dave n goose head over to encore
So it’s a lay in for me
The noise in treasure island from slots is horrendous plus poker rooms closed
Foods greasy fried junk on the whole
I wouldn’t recommend staying here
Although the room was tidy enough
Coronas $9 each
Or in the sports book a bucket of 4 for $25 plus tax $27.65 so with a tip $30
The roulette balls are like dandelions flowers v v light n bounce everywhere so I lost $200 n avoided em
The encore looked better for my June stay - but I never played this time I was being sensible!
Heavier balls that don’t bounce around - no that’s me too I know 😂😂

I’m in front of my cup holder
Dealer says we can move along a bit to give him some room
Which lasts all of 30 seconds till my big fat body double minus bowler turns up
Cue more moaning from the kid
