PostSubject: Weekend in Vegas   Tue Dec 20, 2011 4:08 am

So went to Vegas this weekend to check out houses, apartments and condos and see which would fit the best for me while i live there. Im thinking about moving there early instead of transferring to UNLV, i might take a year off and play poker again in Vegas and then continue school after that..

So spent the weekend in vegas, had a lot of fun and made some money..

Saw this new strip club Deja Vu, fuckin two story strip club! LOL but ya wanted to go but everytime i wanted to go i was either to tired or going to do something else. ill go next time Smile

So played a little poker the first day won a little bit at Venetian and went back to the hotel to go to bed after a 12 hour drive. the next day i checked out some places and then later went to go play at Venetian, had a bad session, had 98 dia river came third dia and had flush over flush for about $250, so left Venetian down $300 and headed to Aria to check it out, when i lived in Vegas Aria was just being built, so i decided i would go over and check out the hype. So got there and wasn't really that impressed, i mean its pretty and everything and they obviously put a lot of money into it but the poker room just didn't impress me, its way to small, so your bumping into ppl constantly, you have to wait forever for a game if you get there late, and they dont start any new games later in the night cuz all the tablesare full because theyre room is so fucking small! LOL and they have what i call the "bellagio attitude" where they really think theyre shit doesnt stink and therefore you get less customer service. My fav casino is by far the Venetian you cant go wrong from food, shopping to poker.

So while i was waiting for a seat at Aria, i see the forensic document examiner guy from Pawn stars at the bar having a cocktail! LOL was so funny wanted to go up to him and say "hey i got a autograph for you to authenticate" he probably woulda got a kick out of it to but idk..didnt.. lol

So after i got my seat was playing for about an hour and Jean-robert bellande's brother sits down at my 1/3 game. and we start to talk a lot about Aria and Bellande and a guy at the table mentioned he was playing in the big game but he says hes always broke? and he said he hes staked but when u see him play 1/3 and 1/5 thats his money hahaha thought that was funny, but ya we talked for a while about a lot of things and i finally brought up the FTP thing and he like froze up hahhaha didnt have anything to say, im like soo wheres ivey? wheres lederer? n shit was so funny but ya he played dumb when i think he knows more than he does..maybe not tho.. but ya ended up leaving Aria down about $100, couldnt get anything going and headed back to my hotel and played poker there...

Back at where i was staying at the Orleans, i bought in for $200 in a $1/$2 game and ran great, stack ran up to $800, then $1100 and cashed out almost $1300 Smile

Golden Nugget is nice, i didn't go my last trip, but when i lived in vegas ( man its been like a year and a half now since then hahaha) but when i lived there i went there from time to time, not often i stayed on the other side of the strip Wink lol but its a fun one def. one of my fav's downtown if not my fav one downtown, they have great tourneys, $60 tourneys every...i think 2 hours..like 5 a day its really nice and they have a reeeally nice 1/2 game, where its uncapped! i mean u dont have ppl sitting with 40k or anything but some guys will sit with up to like 3k and their older guys and they try to push u around sometimes its great SmileSmile but ya thsoe are the best thing about Golden Nugget imo and also that Andreas Holvolt kid, blonde swedish kid from high stakes poker, he played one season and went bust to ivey i think it was hahahah so funny i saw him playing one of the $60 daily tourneys and im like wait this kid was on high stakes poker acting like a high roller n shit and hes playing some $60 toureny at golden nugget i asked the dealer and apparently his wife deals there hahahhaa so ya weird story involving the golden nugget there Smile lol

About The Orleans, great hotel and great poker room its really small poker room but its kinda cool because it has the "station casino" feel to it what i mean by that is, its way more local filled than a reg. strip place. locals love station casinos cuz they treat them great. Orleans is really nice, the rooms are pretty old, ill admit they need some renovation but they have rates now from like $20 a night on weekdays and $49 on weekends, i mean u cant beat that on the strip like Venetian will be $150 a night and prolly like $200-$250 on weekends..and obviously Wynn and others will be more costly, but Orleans is just one block off the strip and its really nice, they have a bad beat jackpot where obviously none of the strip casinos are gonna have thatm and its nice i played with a guy the other day that won 38k from the bad beat jackpot! LOL im like holy shit in my 5+ years playing live ive never hit a bad beat jackpot and of course theres people that have played longer than that and not hit but still just saying Smile but ya Orleans is cool and Golden nuggets cool

For $1/$2 i would rec. Venetian is where ur gonna get the most action and the best bang for your buck!

Four tourneys...thats player dependent.. depends on how much money u wanna spend (what buy ins) and then u take it from there theres casinos that are better for lower limit buy ins imo and there are casinos that are better for bigger buy ins but ill get into that later its late and i gotta go to bed lol
