Thanks everyone. No jackpot, but a nice time. Sometimes they come real close to my birthday though. Taking a few days off. Weather is beautiful and there is stuff at home to play catch up on

Wish that I had followed your lead. It was my worst day in a long while.

I am heading up with a small budget in a few minutes. That can sometimes be a mistake. Have 25 in free play. No room. Will be quarters only. Plan to play 97 percent DDS If i just bet one quarter and hit quad deuces, its good for 200 bucks. Have to force the one quarter bet till I lose 100 quarters before going to bet 2. That will be extremely difficult for me.

Bummer. i knew I forgot something/somebody. Even worse, I have to go back up today for a free ice cream maker. I know, I will see if I can drag the Mrs up for the ride and dinner, but with Covid , don’t know about the dinner part. I’m done with the lounge since they went back to no protocols there. Wearing mask All the time again indoors. Hope they approve that booster shot soon. They better. My first dose was January. I notice at least 4 major Arena events have been cancelled as they have probably told Mohegan no way including Santana and the Doobey Brothers. I have a feeling the casinos are open on borrowed time again, but I don’t know if people and the Country can handle another lockdown again.

It may be the only way to stem my losses. By the time my ship comes in, I will have destroyed most of the dock.

Make sure the pilings are deep and straight. Even if the decking needs to be replaced, that can be done a little at a time as the market will hopefully continues slowly upward. We are planning a trip up tonite, but are concerned about Delta and breakthrough cases popping up everywhere. Masks will be on, no lounge, not sure about dinner plans if any. I also am extremely gun shy at this point after several recent trips when neither of us did well. My expert lifetime rating at the club/range will not help me if the cards don’t fall right. Nickels and quarters will be the fare for sure.

Another loser last night. Was up 100. Pushed it too far. Was trying for plus 300. My own fault.

There's no need to overextend. I just need 750 TCs by year's end to maintain Platinum, a level that I have come to tolerate. So that's easily another -$1,000 forthcoming. I should try to spread that out in over twenty trips. I need just quarters trips there to hit that tier. Once my TC number starts with a five, damn well pull plug on further CET enrichment. I can comfortably stay at fifty at Borgata, have a great time and probably break even. At Caesars I hit dollar machines, stay too long, get hit. I must engage with CEThieves with extreme caution and enter only for the bare minimum of logistical purposes.
