You'll make a comeback!

Just stop when you are +$100, take the slot pull, and then go back to BJ...just in case.

Yoda actually says: Lose or win, not important. Betting big to ulcers leads.

No longer even :-(


Sat down after dinner to play
up and down then lost a few hands to be down $500 BUT, the count went high based on those 5 hands lost in a row...

I put up $300 and was dealt 8,8 versus dealer upcard 5
split the 8's and dealt another 8
three 8's on the table at $300 each
dealt a 3 on the first hand double down got a K for a 20
dealt a 2 on the second hand double down go a 10 for a 20
dealt a 10 on the last hand for an 18

Dealer flips over a 6 for a dealer 11
dealer dealt a 3 for 14
dealer dealt an A for 15
dealer dealt an A for 16
dealer dealt YUP, you guessed it, a 5 for a 21
so, instead of being back to even I am now down $2k ($1,500 on that one hand)

You have got to be kidding me!



This is the exact reason why I HATE Blackjack. These multiple re-split, Double Down hands almost always end up losing to a Dealer's MIRACLE 21. Unfreakingbelievable!
Craps is the most "Jekyll and Hyde" casino game ever invented!

So you lost one hand. Is that so unexpected?
