    It sure ain't the old Vegas now. Cantor has been buying up several books in town and has built downright jaw-dropping, impressive structures. But those books are dead. I have no idea what they are thinking. At the Trop, maybe three old-guy horse players and a couple of air traffic controllers dozing off. The English have bought CalNeva and Leroys. Riviera is kicking Leroys out ahead of the move and putting in Luckys.. Why? We don't have enough Lucky's?

    (The Riviera and Planet Hollywood and Cosmopolitan have got to be the three worst parking beatings to place a bet in Las Vegas).

    As the consolidation continues, we are heading toward five outs in town.

    Losing Cal-Nevada is a bummer....losing the Leroy's contests would suck.

    Main thing I learned in this thread:

    Nevada gaming control board is a joke. It is awesome to read about these storefront independent books. Today, the gaming control board does not allow competition so we have joke books (William Hill) all throughout the state.

    I loved that place with all the goofball toughguys that hung around there.

    What a place

    Six years since this thread originated. Great thread about the Vegas characters of days gone by. Enough times passed to ask what happened to some of the posters as well.
