    Here it is again; The birthday trip planned for the MGM. Last I was there was New Years 2018 and for the 3 nights I was there, I dropped a cool $1,000.

    Then, low and behold, MGM offered me a free weekend in June and by golly, I took it. Hotels.com says its running at $250 - 300 a night so I am up $600 before the trip! The last three trips to Vegas before the disaster at New Year's were winners and I didn't get any offers, but show an ability (Comeback Kid would say "affinity") to lose and by George everything is on the house. Sounds like perverse logic to me.

    The Agenda:

    1. Arrive 7pm; get checked in; watch the Warriors smoke the Cav's.

    2. Get some dinner; grab a few pops; and hit the first open $10/table.

    3. Win or lose $1,000 and hit the sack; repeat and rinse as necessary.

    The Craps Quiz - I will post answers after the trip.

    1. "212 up top" means?

    2. Winner Winner Chicken " ? " (who said it first? - bonus)

    3. What casino ran out of chips during a big craps run?

    4. This famous poker player lost more at craps than he won at poker? Who is he?

    5. Max payout at a craps table during the WSOP in Las Vegas?

    6. Which Vegas Virgin is good luck for the table?

    7. Who wears his lucky shamrock boxers when going to Vegas?

    8. Which bet is statistically the best bet on the Craps Table?

    9. Why does Vegas fly in big gamblers who primarily bet the field?

    10. How many rolls before 7'out is the current world record?

    Have fun boys and girls and will provide all the answers next week. If anyone gets all of them correct, they get a free weekend at the Comeback's kids house in NYC.

    First off, the "prize" for 1st place (visit to NYC, where there is no live craps table in the immediate area) is arguably a disincentive to win, so I'll pass.

    1. "212 up top" means?

    The bettor is either from Manhattan, NY or isn't at all serious about betting the ATS.

    2. Winner Winner Chicken " ? " (who said it first? - bonus)

    Dinner. First uttered by the Chick-fil-A cow (or Barney's goat).

    3. What casino ran out of chips during a big craps run?

    The California seems to attract a few craps players, so I'll go with that casino. Of greater concern, several unconfirmed reports have leaked of a big craps run of a different sort, with an unnamed downtown casino running out of toilet paper after a massive diarrhea outbreak suffered by patrons of various buffets.

    4. This famous poker player lost more at craps than he won at poker? Who is he?

    Charles Barkley may not be correct, but he is usually a safe answer when it comes to losing money at gambling.

    5. Max payout at a craps table during the WSOP in Las Vegas?

    If James Hall is in town during the WSOP Main Event, then $5,000 and down after a twice parlayed $5 hard eight hits. Otherwise, the max payout is the same as it would be on February 29, April 1, or Friday the 13th.

    6. Which Vegas Virgin is good luck for the table?

    Trick question, as there are no virgins in Las Vegas.

    7. Who wears his lucky shamrock boxers when going to Vegas?

    Among others, fans of a lame, irrelevant college flag football team in South Bend, IN.

    8. Which bet is statistically the best bet on the Craps Table?

    The turn me off and/or take me down bets. Honorable mention to the "dealer error in player's favor payout".

    9. Why does Vegas fly in big gamblers who primarily bet the field?

    Why would Vegas casinos fly in players who are smart(er) bettors and theoretically likely to lose less?

    10. How many rolls before 7'out is the current world record?

    154, but only because consecutive rolls made on a craps table at home or mattress don't count.

    Phil Ivey, but the round mound of rebound is always a good answer!

    Phil has some Utube videos where he's playing craps at the Wynn. In one he's talking about losing a million at the tables...then winning it back... then heading to another casino.

    That was just to suck a couple of degenerate casinos in. And it worked. :)
