    Ladbrokes taking me to Vegas

    I hope!

    I want to visit Las Vegas in August but don't want to pay for it.

    So I am going to win the money instead, starting with just a $150 free bet I won in a Ladbrokes sponsored freeroll poker tourney recently. So technically it will cost me zero.


    Just to fly economy and have a basic decent trip will cost $4000, so that's the target.

    I've already withdrawn $800 so will count that and need another $3200.

    My current balance is $210.54

    I have about 3 weeks to confirm the bookings.

    Wish me luck

    Final result was $2350, so $850 short of the target but close enough so I can justify the expense to go.

    Will withdraw to my Ladbrokes card and use it to pay for flights an hotel in the next week or two.

    I'll leave a couple of hundred in there and start again trying to build up a bit of bankroll for the trip.


    Vegas Here I Come. Thanks Laddies

    I'll have to remember to put some on Ricciardo when you up your bet.

    Well day 7 was a 0-3 washout leaving my balance at around $250.

    So after 1 week and 28 bets I am about $30 ahead toward this Vegas trip.

    I've had a few other bets I have not posted over the last week and the balance is just over $400 again.

    But obviously I cannot rely on betting these big favourites for small amounts to get to $3200 in the next week or so, so have come up with a new plan. At the other extreme

    I've picked out one bet to go allin on on Sunday 27th May. Daniel Ricciardo to win the Monaco grand prix.

    Right now he is paying 6.50 so I need about $500 on him to hit the target at those odds.

    I've put $100 on him already but want to wait until closer to race time to make sure the weather is fine before adding the rest.

    Anyway, the plan is to carefully build up the balance over the next week with the plan to go allin on Dan Ricciardo to get me to Vegas for free.

    Sydney Swans kick me in the shins with a loss as a big odds on favourite. And Newcastle cannot score in the A-League grand final.

    But the two MLS games come through.
