    and then finished with the interior fillings only of a crepe and a spoon of their banana mousse. (Not big on dessert)

    My wife was at the spa, and a friend I texted couldn't join me because he was gambling, so I ate alone, but I really didn't mind. I was just there to eat.


    Afterwards I walked all around the resort to walk off some of the food and my post-win energy. It is quite exhilarating to go from over minus -20K to even. I checked out a perpetual calendar Patek that I might buy soon (I collect fine timepieces, and change my watch to change my luck when gambling), and picked up a tee shirt for the wife (she already has everything).


    Afterwards on the way back to the Tower Suites, I stopped back to chew the fat with a few of the pit bosses and dealers in the high limit pit, since I knew my wife wouldn't quite be back from the spa yet. The consensus was that Baccarat is the "most regal" of games and the one that they see people win at the most often. (Sadly, in my opinion and observation, I believe that most players just give back all they win before the end of the trip.) One dealer that I talked to agreed that playing just 500 per hand, the chances of winning back over 20000 consistently over a number of BJ shoes would have been slim. The times that I have won big at BJ, which I used to really kill them at double deck BJ until some of the casinos started banning me from that game, was through huge bet variance, between practically table min and table max. Flat betting pretty much gets you nowhere at any casino game, but most especially at BJ. In Baccarat the good shoes and runs may continue for very long periods, and sometimes it becomes only a matter of "how much do you want to Wynn?"


    Anyway, all's well that ends well.


    Last night they limo'ed us to the hockey game and we were in the Wynn suite at the stadium.

    I managed to make it to the gym before the game, but did not play yesterday.

    We have a late checkout today so I plan to play some this morning.

    The Wynn suite was pretty cool, full hosted bar and fully catered, including next door in the lounge that was open to all suites, and we sat right on the edge of the ice.

    Our team (Vegas Knights) won, 5 to 3 against the Florida Panthers. Vegas has now won 5 out of the last 6 games.

    Had a player run at the end and declared that I would leave when it did, and when it ended...I left! bringing my winner's envelope to about 7K.

    During pretty much the same period that I played and won, a guy came up with three grand and declared that he had twenty minutes to play until he caught the plane. He took that 3 to about 9 at one point but kept playing. In my mind, I was thinking...how much does this guy want? He got back to even and none ahead twice, but rallied each time. He kept playing. What was the goal? Did he even know?

    In any case he walked with only one purple chip...down -2500.

    Money management!

    Packing now, onwards to the next resort later today. Cheerio!

    At casinos if you win, even consistently, at what they view as a game of chance, no one molests you. Win, especially consistently, at what is viewed as a game of skill, and you will be handicapped or banned (been there). Baccarat is viewed as a game of chance. Blackjack as a game of skill.

    Checked into the second resort. This is a different style suite haven't stayed in before. Great layout. Very modern.
