A trip to Las Vegas always pays off big

Published: Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 07:20 PM.

I just returned from my annual Vegas pilgrimage to the WSOP senior’s tournament. The trip was wonderful from beginning to end.

Our flights were flawless and our luggage traveled with us on the same planes. That’s always an excellent beginning.

The dream continued. Our bag was among the first regurgitated onto the carousel at McCarran and the taxi line was short so in no time we were headed to our hotel.

Good fortune stayed with us. It was barely noon when we got to Paris but were checked in without waiting.

This was Wednesday and my tournament kicked off Friday, but if you’ve ever been to Vegas, there’s no such thing as "dead" time. We had things to do so after unpacking, we hopped around town.

We picked up reserved tickets for Ann and Jan’s Mandalay Bay show and then headed to the Venetian for another set of tickets. They’d see some shows while I hopefully remained engaged in the tournament.

On the way back, I stopped by Rio’s "will-call" desk to pick up my table and seat assignment. Angels sang.
