    Day 136 play

    DD Blackjack. 500 - 20000.

    I got in the hole about 10K twice during the session but ended a nice sum ahead. Bets up to 15000 - 20000 a few times. These were when the going was good, but also, mostly catch up wins in terms of bankroll.

    Day 137 play

    DD blackjack. 200 - 15000

    Played two sessions actually. First one I was winning even hands I didn’t expect to but was betting somewhat smaller than other hands that were within periods when I expected to win. Won 5500 on that session.

    Did another short session too.

    Day 138 play

    DD Blackjack. 200 - 10000.

    Somewhat consistent although I was down about 5000 at one point. Seem to be having difficulty winning more than about five grand a session, but there are worse stumbling blocks.

    Day 139 play

    DD blackjack. 200 - 20000

    Rather tumultuous. Playing something like 10 hours at my private table with a two hour break for dinner. Got as far down as -30000 eventually broke far ahead. During this session when I left a 20,000 bet out there twice after pushing with it the first time (I won the second time), a pit boss commented, “You’re very aggressive.”

    When I was cashing out (just cashed out this time - no check) there was someone else cashing out over 100,000 who told me had won it at blackjack too.

    Here's my portion, with one of my jackets spread out under it so that you can't tell what casino I was in. I took the pic while still on the casino floor just seemed like the thing to do.

    Of course the casino played that game of, Sir, if you cash out that much we'll have to close your line temporarily, but I said, "Just give me the cash." My host always reopens it promptly anyway.

    When I was cashing out someone else had won over 100,000, and said had won it also at Blackjack. They just gave that one a cellophane wrapped brick of 100K. Sure looked pretty, but then so did my half brick. Well done.

    There were girls all over the place eyeing me levelly as I was walking around the casino after winning. Do they sense the power? or are they just semi-pros sensing the money?

    Day 140 play

    DD blackjack. 200 - 20000

    Rather monstrous session. I was on quite a roll winning hands I thought I would win, and hands I didn't think I would win.

    The Day 139 play I cashed it all out, $50K.

    The Day 140 play I cashed out half, $50K, and took a check for the rest. I deposited that $50K cash at another casino.

    In general when I get cash, if I'm going to be in the same casino and just go upstairs, I don't worry about it much. I don't even take the cash upstairs anyway I just put it in the hotel safety deposit box. If I am going to travel from one casino to another carrying cash or valuables, I generally take steps to make sure I am not being followed, have someone accompany or drive me from point to point, or all of the above.

    The player who cashed out the full cellophane wrapped brick, over $100K of Blackjack winnings, had some kind of satin bag into which put all the cash. Does that mean that the player assumed that would win very big and came prepared to carry? I'd like to think so - I love to see people beat the h out of the casinos!
    I actually, generally, do not cash out more than about 5K of my winnings (at a time). Just, lately, I've been wanting to make the winnings seem more REAL versus just a blip of a check into a bank account. A little irresponsible as in unnecessary, but, I have cashed out big versus just checks at least for those two sessions 139 and 140.
