I am located in New York - and frequent Foxwoods a lot - I go there 3 days a week (to play poker) - Mohegan Sun is right next door - and I also visit Sands in PA on Mondays (to play poker tournaments)..
I want to optimize the total profit long term.. Not looking for a short term get rich quick scheme. I would like to dedicate 20 hours a week - 1,000 hours a year. I do have the personality to handle the loss even for months.
There is no double deck blackjack in Connecticut. I'm not sure if stabworld thinks there may be or if he is talking about somewhere else.
The rules for the 8 card deck was for foxwoods.. the 2 deck was for Sands.. I haven't personally seen the double deck game at Sands.. and am going off of what somebody else posted in another forum.. http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/blackjack/11128-best-pa-blackjack-game/ I am going to Sands tonight however...and will search for this game.. I heard it is $50 min.according to the other forum.. will report back to let everybody know if it is there or not.
By the way..appreciate all the feedback I am getting so quickly ....
A couple of corrections on the Foxwoods 8 deck game.
The dealer must hit soft 17 and the penetration is closer to 85%.
There are csm's in PA.
