I’m off to fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada for vacation tomorrow! Wish me luck! My friend and I went last year around Thanksgiving and he won about $2,000. Hopefuly it’s my turn this time. Any on else been there, or like to gamble? Converse yourseselves and I’ll be back next Monday to tell you all about it.

Mods, I’d like this thread closed in advance. It’s International Law and an RPGC Rule (#8) that What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas.

Vegas, baby. Vegas.

You’re money, and you don’t even know it.

I’m telling you, baby. Always double down on 11.

You’re a big winner. I’m gonna ask you a simple question and I want you to listen to me: who’s the big winner here tonight at the casino? Huh? Mikey, that’s who. Mikey’s the big winner. Mikey wins.

The beautiful babies don’t work the midnights-to-six on a Wednesday. This is the skank shift.

There ain’t nothing wrong with letting a girl know that you’re money, and that you want to party.

Wait? You’re friends with Dennis Hoffman? O.o

When in Vegas, do as the vegans do, I guess.

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube.

Well, I’m back and I had a blast! Let’s just say my best friend and I saw called “Fantasy” :dancer: and all I can say is NAKED LESBIAN TRIPLETS! Oh, and I won $300 on a penny slot machine with 20 cents!

For my birthday my parents treated my to a really good Italian restaurant and a magic show starring some guy from Holland named Hans Clock and Pamela Anderson was his assistant. We also saw Penn and Teller and they were funny.

Food was awesome too! We had a breakfast buffet one moring and they basically had everything you could possible want and more. Even the 24 hour restaurant had a steak dinner for five bucks between 5 PM and 5 AM. I only wish I had a bigger stomach :cool: .

Anyway, the Xero Travel agency is open for business for any of your questions regarading the entertainment capital of the world.

Whatcha gonna do with the 300 bucks? :smiley:

While the trip is over, The 984 must retroactively demand that you play Pai Gow Poker and Chinese Poker. Both games are extremely fun.

Well, I said I won the money, but I spent more than that on the trip, but it did help. The five day, five day, four night trip only cost me about $900, which really isn’t bad considering how much I played.

I normally feel compelled to yeild to your demands 984, but I must deny this one, at least for now. I generally stick to slot machines and electronic roulette. Table games cost too much in my opinion. Well that, and I have a horrible poker face. I can’t bluff to save my life :hahaha; .

Pai Gow Poker and Chinese Poker are card games usually played against the house, not against other players; although, I have heard of variations of both that play against players. Poker faces are not needed. I think it would be appropriate to describe both games as a mixture of blackjack with poker. Both games are also usually played for very low stakes in casinos, due to the novelty and sort of quirky quality about them.

Now you’ve piqued my interest. I generally stay away from table games because they tend to be too expensive. My best friend loves craps, but for the life of me, I’ll never understand it. It’s way too complex for my tastes. I gamble for fun reallly, not to think too much. However, the idea of tying poker and blackjack is really interesting. I’ll have to look into it next time.

I would never want to play real poker in a casino. I don’t think it would be fun with strangers.

Craps is actually rather easy to get the hang of. Many of the best on the table are just sucker bets you shouldn’t do. They do make the game more fun though.

I want to learn how to play Baccarat just so I can pretend I’m James Bond.

Not counting bets or various dealer rules, Pai Gow Poker is played by dealing everyone 7 cards. With those 7 cards, you must make two hands, a two card hand and a five card hand. The five card hand must beat the two card hand. Seven people, including the dealer, is the maximum amount of players.

Chinese Poker is similar to Pai Gow Poker. Each person is dealt 13 cards. You make a 3, a 5, and a 5 card hand with that. Your 3 card hand must be your worst hand. Your middle five must be your second best hand. Your top five must be your best hand. Four players including the dealer is the maximum amount of players.
