One of my local casinos has a rule that when you split aces, you have the option to double or stand, but not to hit. How much more of a % edge does this give me over only having the option to stand, and would there be any situations where I would deviate from basic strategy?

I'm assuming you mean you have these options after you have already hit once on the split ace. Please clarify. (By the way I thought you were great in The Natural.)

Only deviate from basic strategy if you know something.
May the cards fall in your favor.

1) great name, welcome to the forums =p.
2) can you double for less? I.E. if you have a $100 bet can you put $1 up and say double for less (essentially taking a hit that costs 1% instead of a full double)?
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I was hacked by a former friend so unfortunately I can't. I just was able to get back online today. That's all I'm going to say about it, period.

The timing of your hack was incredible. It occurred at exactly the same time as the announcement of the sale.
