All is still well in Sin City. Spent the last week staying in the hostel on the strip. Met two guys from England called Matt and Ben who I've been hanging around with for a few days so haven't played that much poker but have done more tourist stuff with them and funnily enough more gambling. Went to see a stand up comedian called the Amazing Jonathan who was quite funny, went up the stratosphere tower which gives you some amazing views of the strip and went on a ride at the top which dangles you over the edge. Also rode the roller coaster at the New York New York casino.

The last night Matt and Ben were here I ended up quite pissed playing roulette and started with $100 managed to get ridiculously lucky at one point betting $300 on red which got the adrenaline going only to look down and find it land on black but the dealer paid me and I realised I somehow saw it land on the wrong colour. Walked away with $800 which is probably the best I've ever done on roulette. We lost Ben whilst on the roulette table and me and Matt ended up in a strip club looking for him (well that was our excuse anyway). When we left it was light outside. It was like that scene in only fools and horses where Delboy and Rodney come out of the casino and find its the morning.

Moving back to the Golden Palms today which was the place I stayed in when I first got to Vegas
