    we got here early
    We were in mystic /Groton area yesterday
    So it was only a 15 minute trip
    Had dinner in mystic pizza last night
    Food was great
    Wasn't my first choice but our friends wanted to eat in the eatery made famous from the movie
    I suggested Mohegan sun last night but they were happy hanging out and we sat in lobby watching Clemson football

    As soon as we got here they gave us a room
    A bit of negotiating but we are upgraded to one of their mini suites
    If you don't ask and don't want to be persistent you are missing out

    Walked into grand Pequot casino 3 craps tables going
    2 were 5 dollar min 1 was 10 dollar min

    Hit the 5 dollar table with a small 300 buy in
    I knew it was going to be a short session since we wanted lunch
    I won fast on less than 15 rolls
    Walked away with 530 and was thrilled
    Hit fast and leave

    Went to sugar something or other for lunch
    16 dollars for a grilled chicken sandwich
    Certainly not worth it
    Going down after the giants lose today

    2 TVs one in bedroom area and one in living room area
    Bar area and second (guest) bathroom in back of bar
    Main bathroom has both shower and jacuzzi
    Overall room is clean well appointed and decent size for small suite

    Nice. Nothing like a fast win after arriving.

    Suite looks real nice.

    This is Barney,

    Liman personage should try to find the Supperdave, aka Dave Guacamole, who likes to play in that area on weekends. Liman should make lots more monies by betting on Supperdave and could possibly win up to $75.

    Dave can find me in Pequot casino if he wants to


    Btw tables here are 5 times odds

    Don't know if the other Foxwoods casinos offer higher odds

    I liked this speed limit sign I wanted to share it
    I'm guessing they spent 20 grand of taxpayers Money deciding

    Lemme see 8 mph might be a bit too fast?
    But 7 mph will slow things down to a crawl
    Ok got the solution

    LIman, would you be willing to state what you consider the minimum buy-in and action to receive the comps that you do? I enjoy your travels and casino experiences, but am wondering what I need to do to get the kind of comps you do. Care to share? :)

    I'm sorry if I misled you to believe the room was free
    I posted a while back I paid something like 450 for 3 nights
    I asked at front desk would they upgrade me to getter room and they wanted money which I refused and requested someone else to speak with
    We were then offered the big suite for a small fee and this one as an upgrade comped
    It's not about buy ins it's about clocked time
    And my wife gets a shitload of clocked time even though we haven't been here in a while
    Combined player cards we usually get upgrades for free or small fair charges
    I get plenty of comped rooms,but we chose here this trip without a compedvroom

    Mohegan sun offered us one free night just last week but we stayed put

    My buy ins at 10 dollar tables range from 600-1000
    5 dollar tables around 300-500

    A lot of people disregard or don't care for players cards
    These free upgrades and free nights are the main reason I use it

    so we walked over to fox tower and even though the bubble only allows 2 times odds I played with a 2 buy in and went with 10-12 dollar place bets
    I was up over 150 but started giving it back fast so I got up and walked over to the only craps table active I fox tower
    5 dollar min 2 other played
    300 buy in and I lit up the table
    Me little ole me hit a shot load of repeaters
    I was up to 15 flat with 100 odds at one point on 6 and 8
    I hit 3 hard way dollar winners for the dealers and one 10 dollar hard 6 for me
    I shot way up and it was a super fast game just 3 of us
    I had to use second row in rack for chips
    But like usual I got caught up in the winning and stayed too long after my roll was over
    I rolled 2 more times still just 3 Of us
    I gave a shit load back but I walked with a good win of almost 800 bucks
    So with the bubble bucks I made approx 850 and we are back I room debating going back down

    I love these colored chips

    She's only down 70 bucks,or so she claims

    I don't push or grill her

    There's a jacuzzi in the suite and maybe I'll get lucky

    Went back to grand Pequot and casino was/is pretty crowded
    Gat a corner spot on a 10 dollar table
    Bought in for 600
    Went right down,then someone had a great roll of repeaters
    I only capitalized on half of it as I had my 3 bets down and he threw repeaters of the numbers I didn't have
    I walked down 165,-and I'm done for today
    One guy at table was betting heavy on hops,horn, and hardways
    His rack would fill up with greens and just as fast shrink to almost nothing
    A very volatile type of play along with some come bets
    He had around half of his highest stack when I left
    I don't count nor care about others but his play was high risk and I was surprised he lasted as long as he did
    Hope he left with money

    Oh,the buffet here is closed for renovations so they set up a buffet in the cafe style restaurant
    24 dollars per person
    I'm not a food critique but easiest the worst buffet in America as far as casinos I've visited
    My wife said the shrimp was fine but the chicken,beef,and mystery meats were tasteless,dry and cold
    They have some fucking nerve
    Avoid avoid avoid
    Danger will Robinson
    It sucks!

    If you were betting your usual strategy when I got hot,if there was any way you would have left after that you would have had a very very good day

    And the guy in Pequot had the bases loaded he did pretty fucking good on that one great roll his buddy had
