    This suite is great. About all it could use though, is some new carpet. The carpet looks the same as it did fifteen plus years ago when I last played here!

    This suite has three bathrooms. Don't think I've been in a Vegas suite with three bathrooms before. Two, all the time. But three....

    Day Nine Play

    Three shoes, played the commissionless (pays ½ on bank win 6) table, won two thousand, stopped. Was three hours of play, and the average bet was lower today, about 400 is what the put boss said, although I did have one thousand dollar hand and one twenty-five hundred dollar hand (won both of those, but I wasn’t particularly ahead when I won the $2500.).

    It was a fun session, very smooth. Their boiler was broken so no hot tea. I had to go up to the room to drink some tea from our own electric kettle and to bring down a natural energy drink to pour over ice in a glass they brought me.

    Day Ten Play

    This leg of the trip is over. Leaving – AHEAD. Not a lot ahead, just a couple grand (plus whatever I tipped out), but today finally I completed chipping away at the hole I got into on Day Four play. It was pretty exciting today and after some back and forth and a few losing hands I placed two chocolates – total ten grand on bank and drew a nine.

    I tied!

    Crazy. Tie with nine, with ten grand at stake?

    I free handed the next hand and saw bank draw another nine. Which player tied again!

    I stood up and paced for a bit, and then put the two chocolate chips back down. That wasn’t easy, maintaining the ten thousand dollar bet after seeing bank tie twice, but I’m not one to let a tie hand necessarily dissuade me from anything.

    I drew a nine again, and this time, player a mere one. BAM! I slammed the cards down and collected ten grand – NO commission either, as I was playing the commissionless table today. That’s five hunny in commiss saved, on that hand.

    You can’t really put a price on that feeling – winning a ten thousand dollar hand like that after hesitating on it over three hands. Anyone who gambles should understand.

    Next hand I placed five hunny for me (no I didn’t/couldn’t leave up the ten grand, although I should have), and $125 for the dealer. Bam! another winner for me, and the dealer collected $250. I am certain I’ve tipped out at least fifteen hundred during this trip, maybe two grand, maybe even more. I don’t mind, we leave ahead, once again.

    Several days ago my host let me know my theoretical loss was fifteen grand. By now it must be closer to thirty, and yet – leaving ahead!

    Of course it doesn't mean anything, but I pulled this in the little slot machine I have back at the suite, before going down to play.

    Does it mean anything? Not really but - if you think it does, it just might!

    On to the next resort!

    By the way, I had a chat with my host about my play at this resort - other than this trip, I haven't played here since the early 2000s, and even back then I played for only two or three years total here - nevertheless:

    he's got me down for over a hundred K lifetime here. And this casino is by no means my biggest lifetime win, I've won five to ten times more, lifetime, at other casinos.

    Booyah!

    The final bill for that nearly two week stay in that large suite was barely five hundred dollars - even all spa services were comped. Just tips that I hadn't made in cash, and spa retail were left on the bill.

    It's nice to both win and get 100% comped.
