It’s been over a month since my last casino trip and I’m having withdrawals. The worst part is my next guaranteed trip isn’t for three months. I’ve played as many hands on my favorite blackjack app as I can possibly stand and now I really need a fix of live cards at a real casino.
The funny part is that I’m fine playing less than last year since I’ve skipped the rushed day trips which didn’t help my overall winnings. Even though I’m playing less I’m still pretty happy with my volume of play considering the closest live casino is over 3 hours drive, I’ve got a full-time executive level job, and a wife and 2 kids at home.
I’m on pace for 6 Vegas trips this year, up from 5 last year – add on a couple side trips to Iowa and NC and it makes for a solid foundation for my side gig. All that being said this potential 4 month window out of a casino might be good for my lungs, but its driving me crazy.
I wish I had some point to this post, but really its just a rant brought on by the giddy social media coverage of folks in Vegas for the first day of WSOP. They sound so happy and full of high hopes and I want to be a part of the fun.
Thanks for reading my little piece of self-pity and hopefully I’ll be back in action soon!
