    Default Fall 2022 Vegas trip

    Let's get right to it!


    Day 1 play.

    Baccarat.

    Wasn’t playing too hard but a hand came up where I knew the first card coming out to Player. However it wasn’t a card that would necessarily give Player an advantage. It was a card that would help Player only if the other card dealt to it was a high card and a lot of those had been eaten up recently.

    I put a massive bet on Bank but the dealer talked me out of it. Lol. “Come on ____ this shoe isn’t that great. It’s all over the place.”

    Of course the dealer didn’t know what I knew but anyway I reduced the bet to $10,000. Dealer asked, “Are you sure?” No you’re never sure!

    So I pulled the bet and free handed it. Sure enough Bank won with a natural 8 via two relatively smaller cards and Player got the card I already knew it would get plus a crappy little card. Can’t be letting dealers talk me out of what I already know.

    Still - in Baccarat knowing just one card isn’t the be all or end all. Any two cards may add up to a Natural. But - give any Bacc player the opportunity to know the first card out the gate and if they’ve been tracking every single card dealt (assuming they are capable of doing that in the first place) - that piece of info might add up to something.

    Anyway that was pretty much the only time I knew exactly what was coming during a short session. Still won. Just won a lot less than I might’ve.

    Day 2 play.

    Baccarat.

    Got more than a little ahead of myself, lost some keys hands, practically to the felt with what I had pulled, rallied, still ended behind and called it a day.

    Day 3 play.

    Baccarat.

    A Lot. Of. Action.

    Three separate sessions. Won all three, on the second one I really could have cleaned up but I was started to get tired.

    Tired or not I still played a third session, and added a bit more to the coffers.

    Day 4 play.

    Baccarat.

    Three separate sessions in different casinos. First two I won about what I should have based on how things were going third shoe I really should have cleaned up but I wasn’t taking advantage as much as I should have been. Still, it amounted to using all three casinos as my personal ATM on yet another day.

    One of the casinos let me cash out without temp closing my line, one of them never closes my line no matter how much I cash out and at the others the cashouts were relatively small (just under 5K per) each time so no effect on my line.

    Day 5 play.

    Baccarat.

    Was up a little at a couple points but mostly down, never got back to even, hate to admit it - but was Chasing some. Finally just ended the session, as no advantage was forthcoming.

    Day 7 play.

    Baccarat.

    Two sessions. Won pretty well at one came back from well behind to win a little at the other.

    Two cute girls wandered into the back area and sat at my table, not realizing it was reserved. The pit boss was about to chase them off when I said, No, I believe I can hang out with you fellas for a little while, so I let them stay and they didn't win anything, but they didn't lose either. After I won, I left and told the pit boss they could keep playing at my table if they wanted.

    I got their names but left it at that. It was just fun to watch them in action, was all, because they got so into the game.

    Day 8 play.

    Baccarat.

    Two sessions. First one, betting like a madman, won very little. The bit bets mostly cancelled out. Second session, barely betting, won a decent sum.

    Just the way it goes sometimes.

    Day 9 play.

    Baccarat.

    Three monster sessions, two at the same casino. First one was a big loser, second session fairly big winner, third one got me close to even for the day but not quite.

    I was betting pretty heavily throughout.
