Countdown To Vegas

As you can see by looking at the countdown clock to the right, my Vegas trip is less than two days away! Ms. Duck and I haven't been since early July, so we're really looking forward to our trip.

We are taking an EARLY flight out of Waco Saturday morning, which will require me to get out of bed around 4:30. Not good! From Waco we catch a connecting flight out of DFW, and should be on the ground in Vegas by 10:30 PST.

After we pick up our rental car, we'll drive over to Green Valley Ranch and spend our first night there. Sunday, we'll check in at the Venetian and stay there through Friday and head back to Wacko.

One issue with our return flight is the timing. We are scheduled to land in Waco at 6pm, and our monthly Vegas Or Bust League Tourney begins at 7. So it'll be tight, and if one of the flights is delayed, I'm screwed.

While in Vegas I'll be looking to play in some of the daily tournaments, so if any of you have suggestions for the best ones, let me know. I'll take a look at the AVP website for a schedule and work from it.

I'll be warming up for the trip by playing in J-Dawg's Poker Extravaganza tonight and Tin Man's $5 NLHE Tourney tomorrow. I'll try to post a report on how they went before I leave for the desert.

 From reading their blogs, it looks like MOJO, VJ, and Hoyazo will all be in Atlantic City this weekend, participating in a WSOP Circuit Tourney, so best of luck to all of you! Bring it home for your fellow bloggers : )

Till next time, win the flips.


  1. Good luck when you come to town - hope you both have a great time and go home with extra $$$

  2. Thanks grrouchie!

    Where do you normally play? Maybe I can look you up.

  3. Good luck in Las Vegas.

    btw -- If you decide to go to a buffet while there, try the Wicked Spoon in the Cosmopolitan. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

  4. recently I don't normally play.

    This week starts my Craps dealing class and as such I'll have Monday and Tuesday evening free - but I work Wed-Friday till 10-11 in the evening.

    if you are playing any cash Monday/Tuesday just let me know and I'll see if it's possible to make it out and at least meet ya - win a few Benji's at the time too lol.

    my email is my username at

  5. @ lightning- We like the Cosmo, so we'll check out the Wicked Spoon if we're there around mealtime.

    If I remember correctly, didn't you visit the Pinball Museum on your last trip? If so, was it worth your time? I'm a pinhead and have never been and was considering dropping by. LMK.

    @ grrouchie- If I know where I'm gonna be Monday or Tuesday evening, I'll shoot you an e-mail early in the day. Unfortunately, my cell doesn't have internet access. I'm too damn cheap : ) Is there a room that you prefer to play?
