    If someone gave me $10,000 in cash to play at the Craps Table, win or lose... would I play a different game?

    Are you nuts? Damn right I would play a different game from my $200/$300 System. I would step up to a $1,000 game by pressing these wagers up. Spend no more time at the table, just wager higher amounts in multiples of my 'normal wagers'.

    Are you more likely to Baby someone else's Race Car at the Track... or Yours for a big WIN? If you say... yes, you have mental issues already. I would smoke them tires hot in clorox, roll back and get 98% of whatever this car can put out.

    Same with the Craps Game. Would you 'wuss' out like usual? Not me. Time is not your friend at the tables.

    Option 2: If the 'donor' said he would break both legs and an arm if you lose... would you chose another game to play?

    I'd tell them I lost it and use the money as a partial down payment for more farmland.

    Option 2; Blackjack, single or double deck, head to head with 3/4 pen, 3:2 bj, dealer stands on soft seventeen, double down on any two, double after split, split aces more than once, surrender. :)

    In my BJ book, when I taught, I listed the rules that favored the player and those that favored the casino and the percentage advantage/disadvantage.of each rule....I listed about 14.......the point was that casino rules were different and some casino's favored the player more than other casinos and you should play where the most favorable rules are.......the course main focus was basic strategy......hence my handle basicstrategy777......( you can guess why 777)

    Hmmmm ..... three wheel lucky sevens machine? Super Sevens BJ Side Bet? Twenty-one?
    If you promise not to break my legs if wrong, I'm going with twenty-one.

    HornHiYo,

    Dreaming of the way things were Yeas Ago @ the BJ Tables???

    Go back 15 - 20 years ago & the Casino's would Grandfather one in @ a Table when other players left. Thus you could play One-on-one with a Dealer, no more, if folks leave a table, leaving you the only player, they will CLOSE that table & send you to another table.

    Yes, BJ used to be beatable with a two stage counting system, but not any more, with Casino Rule Changes in place..

    The Grandfather In thing applied to situations where casinos raised the table minimum as the crowds arrived. They would allow the lower stakes early player to stay in the game at that minimum bet until the player quit or the table closed. Grandfathering never guaranteed tables wouldn't close.

    The bj game is still beatable for advantage players. Casinos know it and they still do bar advantage players.

    For sure player favorable rules are fewer and farther between, but they are there. Not all casinos in all venues are the same and rules vary between stores.

    It's possible to get "some" one on one time as tables open and hope the table doesn’t fill quickly. But at the end of the day when crowds start to thin the last player at the table needs to be really lucky to hang on for long at any low stakes tables. Playing alone and betting nickels just ain’t cutting it for for holding down a private table with full time dealer as the crowd thins. Beefing up the minimum bet may buy a little more time.

    It's by far easier to get more player favorable rules and / or one on one action at higher stakes tables.

    Interesting lawsuit. Not sure how Wynn is circumventing Massachusetts laws on black jack payouts of 3/2 vs 6/5 and what the gaming commission needs to “review”. Seems pretty clear cut.

    On slots....they are keeping the change from every slot ticket??

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wc...ayers-were-cheated-winnings-withheld/28400231

    Upon further review of the gaming rules...there is mention of 6/5 and 3/2 blackjack in MA gaming rules. It's not exactly clear cut if it has to be marked on the table.....so it might not be a clear cut rule.

    The issue of keeping the change and rounding down all slot payouts seems pretty shitty. Any ticket I've ever put into the redemption ATM spits out cash to the penny.

    If a guy is playing "nickel" BJ, he is NOT an AP. :D
