Well after my last entry I went to the MGM Grand and lost my $400 profit straight away. Which sucks but over the last few days I've managed to get it all back. Had to move from my luxury no frills accommodation on Friday morning because its so expensive to stay anywhere on the strip on weekends. So I checked into a hostel last night which is downtown and although it had been ages since I had a room to myself before the last week, I forgot how annoying it is trying to get to sleep with everyone else in the room snoring.

Checked out the casino's downtown yesterday and played in Binions horseshoe casino where I lost $300 in a cash game then won a satellite tournament into a $300 tournament today. After that got the bus up to the main strip where I watched the Treasure Island pirate show. Then went to the Mirage and won $500 in one hand when I flopped trip threes against some guys pocket kings. Got my first Royal flush in Vegas at the Mirage last night. All the casino's usually have some kind of bonus for getting a high hand except for the Mirage so I won about $30 in the pot. So apart from more poker, more of Vegas, more ups and downs to the bankroll, there's not much else to write really.

Gotta go the tournament starts soon.
