I had a little run in with a guy at the table who constantly knew what card was coming, after the fact. After one obnoxious outcry against another player, I called him out. Offered him ten to one he couldn't name the next card he'd received. When he declined, I offered him 2-1 if he could simply name the suit. No bet., so I offered him even money if he could just name the color of his next card. I really expected he'd take that one up but he didn't. A round or two later when he was hesitating over a three card hand, the object of his earlier scorn spoke up and pretty much shamed him into leaving the table.
Normally, I try to avoid such things. A BJ ninja should be unseen and unheard,. Having a confrontation means you've already lost.

Why do people like that even play blackjack? If I was the kind of person that thought other people's actions affected my wagers than I simply wouldn't be playing that kind of game. I'd be playing roulette or slots or something like that.

I've had the usual stuff happen. Craps players openly berating another player because they sevened out or the table turned after they bought in. That kind of stuff happens and you just have to brush it off.

You know what I haven't been able to brush off? I'm at Muckleshoot (outside of Seattle) and step up to the table next to a FoB Asian man. Chinese I think. I buy in, make my bets, then decide to smoke a cigarette and realize I forgot my lighter. I then look around and notice the FoB next to me has a lighter. I ask to use it. He says no. I understand that perhaps he thought I was asking for a cig, reiterate it, and he says no again. This POS living stereotype won't let me borrow his lighter to light one cigarette. That, people, is my worst experience with other patrons.

Honestly, it was worse than getting a black chip jacked.

Devil's advocate: If he was Asian, he might have been very superstitious and the lighter was his good luck charm. He might not have wanted you to touch it for fear of giving him bad luck. I don't know if that's really a thing with Asian gamers, but it sounds like it could be.

The worse thing that has happened to you in a casino is a guy wouldn't let you use his lighter? Seriously?

I chit chatted with a lady with a service dog. She was a total nut ball, hearing half of what I said, misinterpreting the other half. She was like a computer program designed to make you insane, making stuff up, repeating you wrong, putting words in your mouth. I've heard she has managed to have employees fired at that casino. I'd bet she is a faker, I had seen her there before without a dog, drunk as a skunk. So toxic.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!
