    Upcoming Vegas trip

    I posted this question in the paid subscription section but it didn't really gain any traction (thanks to RCJC, Talmadge and ferenc11 who did answer):

    Headed over for a week very soon. Have a copy of CBJN so familiar with the games and what I want to primarily play (DD with DAS at the $25 level - so around 0.40% HE or better if I can get S17). Any places you would recommend NOT trying a $25- $150 spread, given heat etc?

    As a caveat, the trip is only a week long and I won't be back for months. So if that means playing sweaty places you wouldn't ordinarily play if you frequent Vegas often, I'm happy to try those too, even if it means being shown the door. Although, I would like to last in a place more than 30 minutes, so I'd like to avoid the places that are absolute no go zones.

    Edit: Feel free to PM me.

    Even if it means having your face "flyered" to other casinos?

    Well, I'd prefer to be able to last the week, so that would mean accepting polite back offs, but not being the subject of having my face plastered across town.

    Do you imagine that a 'polite" backoff
    does not often result in being 'flyered.'

    I can absolutely assure you that even
    red chip amateurs get put in O.S.N.

    Well, like I said, it's a week long trip where my face won't appear again for months. I'm not as worried as a local Vegas player would be. So I guess my original question remains.

    Stay away from dumps and sweat shops like Fiesta Rancho, Texas Station, Suncoast, Rampart, T.I., SLS, etc., etc. I consider almost every casino in Vegas to be pretty sweaty, but some are much worse than others.

    Just hit and run everywhere you can. Who cares if you get flyered? There’s like 90 casinos in Vegas. Just don’t play rated, don’t split 10’s, and don’t over-stay your welcome.

    If you’re going to play a certain chain, then stick to the more tolerant joints and leave the sweaty ones alone. If you plan on playing at Red Rock or GVR a lot on this trip, then I would avoid playing their dumpy sister properties, like Palace Station or Fiesta. If you plan on playing Orleans, then don’t play Suncoast. If you’re going to try to play Bellagio, then stay the hell out of NYNY. See what I mean?

    What about preemptive disguises? Usually peeps only resort to disguises AFTER theyve been backed off everywhere, flyered, and stuck their mug in the memory banks of every critter on the strip. But homeboy got me thinking - if hes only going to be there for awhile and not be back for long time - why not put on a fake beard some over the top glasses and a big goofy hat, burn all the games down and then if he does get flyered its a picture that looks nothing like him

    Thats grosjean andw thats exactly what im talking about

    T.I was actually on my list - but I'll stay away. Thanks for the heads up. I was thinking Downtown Grand also, but was advised not to play there.

    I was thinking Circus Circus, Encore, Excalibur, Golden Gate, Golden Nugget, Luxor, M Resort, Monte Carlo, NYNY, Stratosphere, Tropicana - basically any game at the $25 DD level with DAS according to this month's CBJN. Let me know if you'd avoid any of these places.
