The Blackjack Table

Here's the real point, if you play on those joker ass tables in OK, you're losing before you even start playing.  The only way to truly play the game is going to Vegas and finding a $25 or $50 min bet single deck table that no one is sitting at.  Just you and the dealer.  I played 18 hours straight, without eating, while drinking at least 30 gin and club sodas at one a few years back with a $500 that I took down from my room to go make sports bets.  When you find one, get on it.  I think I walked away that night with about $400 in winnings, a serious drunk, and having tipped various dealers and beverage distribution engineers a few hundred dollars.

My streak at the nugget has been solid enough that it keeps me from shuttling over LAuberge 

I’ve played on some really good tables at GN

I'm in Vegas Caesars is paying out a blackjack 6:5. When did this bullshit start?

it was happening 5 years ago on the strip casinos.  it has become pretty prevalent all over Vegas. 

 

googling 3:2 blackjack payouts vegas comes up with articles from 2010 saying Harrahs started the trend after they got the Las Vegas gaming commission to change the payout rules. 

 

also as sooner posted last year, El Cortez still does single deck 3:2

Ironically harrahs still has one good table. Got up 600 hit a bit up a lull and I was the only one playing. Got up to take a piss and stretch the legs. Came back and they had shut it down. Oh well quick 500 profit.

It's like they don't make enough money ramping up the table minimums from $5 - $15 or $25 that they have to fuck you in the ass dropping the blackjack odds as well.  

You insensitive bastard. The house is barely squeaking by...

I forget the exact odds, but between going to 6:5 on blackjack and hitting soft 17, the house edge on blackjack has gone from roughly 0.5% if you play perfect basic strategy to somewhere around 4.0%.  In other words, it's no more beatable than a slot machine.  Like Lurch, I quit playing blackjack when they made these changes.  And that sucks because blackjack can be really fun.

played a little blackjack at MGM National harbor the last few times in DC but not really worth mentioning. They have continuous shufflers so you can't count.

In Tahoe to ski and walked around and found an empty table with $25 min single deck at Montbleu/Bally's with 3/2 blackjack and sat down. Dealer dealt down to the last 10 or so cards so it was game on. Of course someone sat down for the second time through the deck. Dropped $300 in about 15 minutes, couldn't win a hand and lost every single double down and split. Pulled out $300 more and ran it up to around $900, then got 8's against a 6 with a +6 count. Jackpot! First hand get 2 then 10 for 20, second I get a 10. Dealer shows a 7 below, get's an 8. Goodbye $200. Don't think I won more than 5 hands after that and went from $700 to zero in about three decks.

Went up to reno last night and found the same rules at a game at peppermill but with $10 min  bet. I was spreading from $10 to $100 with no heat and went on a good run and cashed out +$440. 

Will hit up blackjack and possibly poker here tonight. Poker only runs Wed-Sun at Harvey's here. No big O or PLO games I could find in Reno
