Had a nice run at the Cromwell on Thursday. Landed at noon and got checked into Caesar’s, finished typing in all my edits from the five hour flight and corked a nice bottle of wine. Got spruced up and walked into the sunshine. Looked right: Bellagio. Left: Cromwell. Decided to play the Cromwell as the table by the door is fun. I can stand straight out and see the world going by. They always have the doors open and you can watch the show girls and various hucksters, the tourists, the drunk girls, the impossibly attractive couples strolling in and out. I was spinning my wheels, dying a slow death of attrition and was down to just a couple of hundred. The whole table emptied out and it was just me rolling. Two or three hours later this is what I was able to create. My talisman guards my chips in this photo.
