HARVEST ADVENTURES FROM AN ADDICTED CHIP COLLECTOR

BY RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER
SOME PEOPLE HAVE COMPULSIONS TO GAMBLE, SOME TO AMASS FORTUNES AND OTHER’S, WELL THEY JUST LIKE TO WRITE STORIES. YEAH, THAT WOULD BE ME. I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED TO WRITE, NEVER WAS VERY GOOD AT IT; BUT I HAVE DONE IT OVER THE YEARS JUST THE SAME.
IF ANY OF YOU WANT ANY INSIDE INFORMATION ON ANY CASINO THAT I’VE BEEN TO, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW.

PERSONAL HARVESTING STORIES

RIVIERA LAS VEGAS, NEVADA

By:RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER

GOOD DAY, EVERYONE. THE RIVIERA WAS THE HOME OF MY FIRST CC-GTCC CONVENTION. NANCY AND I WERE MARRIED ON AUGUST 5, 2007 AND WERE LIVING OUT OF OUR RECREATION VEHICLE A 32 FOOT CLASS C RV. WE HAD DRIVEN THE RV AND HER PRIUS TO LAS VEGAS AND MADE ARRANGEMENTS TO HAVE HER CAR SHIPPED TO ASHLAND NORTH CAROLINA. WE KNEW WE WERE GOING TO SETTLE IN TENNESSEE OR NORTHERN ALABAMA AT THAT POINT. YES, WE DROVE THE RV ACROSS THE USA.
MEANWHILE, AT THE RIVIERA, AFTER WE PULLED IN AND GOT A ROOM; WE SNUCK OUR CAT INTO THE ROOM, AND PARKED THE RV OUT IN THE BACK PARKING LOT. IT WAS GETTING LATE, AND I WAS EXITED ABOUT IT BEING MY FIRST CONVENTION.
THIS WAS TO BE A VERY IMPORTANT EVENING TO ME, THIS WAS THE EVENING I WAS INTRODUCED FORMALLY TO GREG SUSONG. I HAD MADE MANY TRADES THROUGH THE MAIL AND PURCHASED CHIPS FROM HIM OVER THE PAST 2-3 YEARS WHEN I FIRST GOT SERIOUS ABOUT COLLECTING CHIPS. I MET HIM AT A POKER TABLE AT THE RIVIERA, WHERE I SAT DOWN WITH A HALF A DOZEN OTHER MEMBERS OF THE CLUB. I HAD NOT EVEN BEEN A MEMBER A YEAR AT THE TIME. WHILE WE WERE CHIT CHATTING AT THE POKER TABLE I WAS GOING THROUGH EVERY CHIP OF THE RIVIERA FOR ANY AND ALL OF THE VARIATIONS THAT THEY HAD. THIS WAS A VERY EASY HARVEST, MY PURPOSE FOR WRITING ABOUT THE RIVIERA IS THAT THIS PARTICULAR VISIT WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME BECAUSE OF MY FIRST MEETING OF GREG. I GOT TO KNOW HIM BETTER OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS UNTIL WE LOST HIM. THIS WAS A VERY SAD DAY FOR ALL OF US.
WHEN I WENT TO CASH IN MY CHIPS AFTER PLAYING POKER FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS THAT FIRST TIME, I NOTICE THEY HAD SOME COMMEMORATIVES SITTING OUT ON THE COUNTER, ONE WAS ANN NICOLE SMITH. THAT WAS ANOTHER MEMORY THAT CONVENTION OF 2007. YES, OF COURSE I DID GET ENOUGH CHIPS FROM THE RIVIERA. NOW SHE IS GONE AND ALL OF THE CHIPS ARE OBSOLETES…REGGIE
