    And I'm glad I did
    I shot up over 800 bucks ahead
    I was missing 2 and 12 on all all twice but then realized it was only 30 to 1 and 150 to 1
    I played 15 flat with 50 odds and 30 each 6 and 8
    Only 6 or 8 if one was point

    I never had a seven point seven out roll
    It was an incredible pace with only me at table
    4 rolls per minute or 3 rolls per minute
    My chips were paid as dice were pushed back to me
    At one point halfway thru I went to around 200 ahead and was going to leave
    I stayed figuring my first live table in a while
    I kept hitting 6's
    I had my six up to 120 when I sevened out
    My 8 was at 90
    I left up exactly 850 gave the dealer 15 dollar tip and left
    My wife dropped 80
    She said she was watching me and saw I was stacking chips in second row so she knew I was doing good

    I'm tired
    We got a reco to eat at grumpys bar and grill
    We skipped lunch so we are both hungry
    Waiting on food now
    Place is fucking packed I hope the food is good


    Not sure if we are going back tonight
    I'm thrilled my winning streak is alive and well
    I've never had this kind of luck last so long

    We are not going back
    It's unbreathable outside
    Like a rainforest the fucking dew point and humidity
    I'm happy with my fat ass laying in the room
    Got a lot of driving tomorrow
    Want to get close to Asheville or into Asheville tomorrow would be great
    Traffic rules our daily destinatio
    Just paid 4.60 for gas

    Turns out there's a huge shop hop in the Carolinas where quilters visit as many quilting stores this week and compete for prize. Ok whatever but the only store my wife must visit is opening tomorrow so we now added another day to cherokee
    Guess we will be doing a lot of schmoozing in the smoked mountains
    Take a cruise on the blue ridge parkway with the top down
    And of course a lot of gaming

    Only will be in car 3 hours today

    Maybe watch some fireworks later

    I'm sure my wife will enjoy spending half of what I won in perryville in the quilting store tomorrow

    It's all good

    Hotel prices are fair went down since I've been watching them

    We got saturdays price down from 189 to 169 then manager liked me and gave me another discount down to 156

    Last night we got her down to 139

    We pull out every card and ask

    Senior discount? Aaa? Govt worker?hey my wife is a member of a state employment union sometimes it helps
    And always the last question. Is that the absolute best rate we can get?

    Never hurts to ask and in the casino pull out the players card as well

    Spent time in downtown Asheville pack park square
    And it's packed with people music a lot of food booths
    We didn't stay nor did we go to any of long lined restaurants for dinner
    Fast food tonight then maybe go watch fireworks
    We are in Cherokee tomorrow till Saturday
    Got enough time to play

    One thing

    mad we were just leaving there were lots of assholes with signs coming into park
    Most were pro life so I guess they are setting up a protest tonight

    one guy was wearing a wooden sign on back and front like the east at Joe's signs on a person
    Vote D for democrat and save America
    I told him as we passed him no one gives a shit about his political beliefs
    He just looked at me
    I may be fat and old but I still look just intimidating enough to not fuck with
    Well at least he was a little weasly piece so nothing
    And all the pro lifers walking to get ready
    Trust me they were ugly enough none would have to worry about abortion
    The youth of today are gross


    Then there were 100's of mommy's and daddy's with young kids
    All healthy looking and active

    We got into cherokee couple hours ago
    Did some food shopping
    Sorry I didn't get down to casino to check out dice on shoot to win but I will get down there later
    This place is just too much walking


    Anyway at checking they do not allow room upgrades to suites by payment
    Either you have enough juice to get upgraded to suite or king room is best they offer
    Mountain tower is closest to casino and renovated
    Room is decent but not suite size

    The view from our room

    Casino was very crowded
    3 tables going one crapless 25 min one regular 25 min and one 15 min
    All 3 no spots when I got there
    There was an asian couple playing next to an older asian gent
    I asked if they could move over and they told me why don't I play on the other side of them
    The older asian gent saw I was a little ticked but invited me over and the dealer said their is more room for you here
    Did t get it all they had to do was move closer and not 4 feet apart with chips in between them but I said nothing

    I bought in for 1000
    It was crapless
    I played 25 flat with 50 odds unless point was 2,3,11, or 12
    Then I only put 10 odds
    I don't like crapless but wanted to play
    I was about to leave when I was down around 400 but some lucky guy hit a lot of 5 s and 6 s
    He brought me back and I was up nearly 3
    I wanted to roll once
    So i played through 2 more players
    I got dice I bet 5 flat for dealer
    I put 10 odds for dealer
    Hit the ducking 7 on next roll so I threw dealer a red chip and left
    I ended up down 45 bucks so it was ok
    I played for nearly an hour or so
    My wife dropped 90 and was very unhappy
    She said at least at quilt store I walk away with fabric
    She met one of her internet quilting celebrities this morning in weaverville so she was happy


    Oh shit first thing I did was try to get a look at dice on roll to win
    I felt like a creep moving up to get a peek
    All seats were taken and people were waiting for seat

    so live table dice are translucent red
    You can see thru the dice easily
    Not true on roll to win
    Dice were dark blue and from 2 viewing positions dice were not translucent like live table
    Not sure if they were totally unclear but for sure not anywhere as translucent as live table dice
    Having said that
    The table was screaming up a storm
    People were hitting lots of points

    but again not the same dice as I've seen on all other roll to win tables
    Don't know if they are special dice or just more substantial to take the harder surface
    I'll try to get a seat tomorrow so I can hold them and look closer through them

    We ate at the higher end food court here
    Caesar salads and burger or chicken

    the lower end food court opens at 11 pm till 7 am
    Interesting hours
    We are thinking about Ruth Christie's for dinner tomorrow but I'm offended by their ridiculous prices

    This is Barney

    The LID says that the Ruth Christy's is great at Cherokee and if you have the monies try their "roasted stuff duck" if you can stand the gamey translucent flavor

    Played hour and half at 15 dollar table
    The all all here is called little one big one and something like boom or bust? I forgot
    I played when I first bought in
    The guy rolled little ones straight
    Got my 150
    Played it a few more times abpndvthen stopped
    When a guy hit the all tall or big ones the pit boss was paying them out and said congratulations gentleman on your big ones and I said hey my wife says that to me all the time
    Everyone burst out laughing
    Never was down but never took off
    I rolled 3 points fast and had dealer on all for 5 flat with 5 or 6 odds
    Bought in for 1000 left with1140
    I will go down soon
    We went for a drive on blue ridge parkway
    Took some pics
    Fucking heat and humidity is killing me
    I'm too fat for the walking involved here

    Everyone is coughing and sneezing here
    Dealers pit bosses players
    Not good kinda scary
    But fear of virus isn't going to stop me from moving forward
    It's not a question of if it's a question of when
    My brother who has had blood clot problems for years was in hospital for 4 days with covid and got a serious clot doctor said caused by covid
    He went home today

    Just dropped 265 at 25 dollar crapless table
    Could not get a spot on 15 dollar table

    after my 2 points table went ice cold and now table is empty

    I did get a better close up look at dice on roll to win

    not the same blue dice as live table
    They are not translucent
    And that's that
    We are going to order in whatever room service they have and relax

    I'll probably head down later

    my wife dropped another 80 or so

    casino is pretty crowded for a Wednesday

    my wife says they pulled the switch on slots

    My wife didn't want to go down so I went without her
    15 dollar table had a few spots
    Bought in for 600 to change up
    Was down around 200 when the dice were passed to a tall black guy who I recognized from yesterday and this morning
    He was wearing the same striped shirt,and every time he rolled he was always a number or two short of boom or bust as they call it
    He hit a seven and then I decided put the 5,5,5 across
    He hit it
    He hit it fast I still only had 30 on 6 and 8
    But that thousand win I immediately went to full odds on my 15 flat bet
    I won a couple
    I rolled all big ones for 150 then of course I overstayed my welcome

    I had the dealer on 2 pass line 7's so when I colored up I I gave him a green chip
    I felt generous
    I left up 1800
    Very happy man
    My luck is holding up
    I'm done for the night
    Roll to win was still packed and they were high fiving almost every roll
    Not sure what was going on there


    This has been a good evening

    And each fill up gasoline prices were lower per gallon as I get further south
