Got back Friday... superb trip!  Winnings paid for flight/hotel/food and I came back with 400 on top.

I think the first thing I ended up doing was playing 1/2 NL hold em at Excalibur.  

Took 3rd in the 70 dollar morning tourny at MGM and took down 630.00.  That was sweet!!

I like the tourneys at the MGM, very laid back.  I went out with a friend and we played in the night game, I came in fourth, and my friend won it all.   It was classic.

1.  Lots of 1/2 NL holdem at Excalibur and Hooters.
2.  Placed top 5 in 3 of 5 NL holdem tournies.  1 at Excalibur and 2 at MGM.
3.  Walked the strip one night to check out the various casinos/sports books.  Played BJ, starting with 100.00, at each casino we ended up at.
4.  Went to Spearmint Rhino one night... that was fun.
5.  Spent some time betting/watching games at the sportsbook at MGM.

Think I'm going with my wife the next time.  Would like to hit up a few shows/fancy dinners.  I'd love to spend a day hiking the mountains surrounding Vegas as well.

head out to red rocks for a mountain hike, very scenic,,and you can pick a short trail or a longer one if you prefer--remember to drink lots of water

I have done the hike at Red Rocks, it was very nice.

You have to do the Hoover Dam once.

Go to the VooDoo Lounge for some pics of the city at night.

great advice guys.... I'm arriving this Sunday, 1 day short of the Pacquiao/Mosely fight and the Nascar race is Sat.night.... so can't bet those when I arrive    ..... guess i'll throw my cash on Pacman thru my online site, but would have been cool to be there the night of the fight.

First thing I always do.... well we arrive 8:00am, doubt we'll have a room ready, so we leave our luggage at the desk, then I'm straight to the Sportsbook, will get my Hockey/Baseball parlays and bets in.... then sit my behind down at the Poker table and drink and play texas hold'em for few hours while watching the Hockey playoffs!!!! The wifey can darn off and go shopping.... LMAO
