My vote is Planet Hollywood. Good looking girls and 3-2 BJ, albeit with otherwise lousy rules.

I thought the Blackjack was 6/5 at PH? Are you talking about a few tables at higher limits?

I agree with the choice regarding the atmosphere and girls though. A fun place in general.

Yeah I hate to break your love of PH's Party Pit, but it's entirely now 6:5. In fact, I don't think there's a party pit out there that doesn't have 6:5... ahh wait, Riviera has 7:5.

Actually, Bally's does have Ultimate Texas Hold Em with the <%1 house edge on the Trips bet paytable. The dealers are good, although supposedly the guy who ran it is now over at PH.

According to the dealer I talked to last Friday evening, she said he's at PH full-time now. She said it's just not the same without him. I never met the guy, but was prompted to ask why a party pit would be named Jarrod.

I also wondered who Jarrod was. Did you meet the gothic/burlesque lady pitboss?

I guess I stand corrected then. It was 3-2 before Harrah's took over. Oh well. I'm not sure it counts as a "party pit" but there is a pit by the sports book at the Golden Nugget with all attractive female dealers that I believe is 3-2 on some games. Am I wrong?
