I haven’t written up my CES report yet, but I did want to report that I left Vegas slightly ahead (don’t worry IRS. I’ll lose it at the ponies this year with Luka)
I was down my budget – $20. And I was all in on one last bet. Many a time, it comes out in the house’s favor, and I’m done. But that was not to be that night.
The fellow hit his point. Went on to hit 3 more points and a ton of numbers in between. He was setting the dice on sixes on top, and so I played the 11 quite a bit. I hit it about 2/3 of the time which really helped explode my bank roll.
He got me back to halfway. Next guy did nothing. Next one was good for 3 points. One of them was a 10 which helped huge on the odds when he hit it.
Next two were useless. Then it was my turn.
I had a great roll. I hit 4 points. A ton of numbers in between, and then seven’ed out.
And at the the end I was back to being ahead. So I picked up, and went home.
It was a ton of fun, and it’s why I love craps so much.
But when that last all-in bet goes the other way…
