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.



Were you hacked by TimSpeed's mother? :-) Those not familiar can look it up using this site's search.

I would be interested in seeing an answer on this as well. A casino up north in my state has this rule and I will be going there this summer. The game according to the Wiz's calculator is around .38% HE but since you can still make soft doubles on split aces so it's gotta be a little bit better if I had to guess.

Again, I posted the link to the strategy on page one which includes the reduction in HE. This rule can be found at Little River Casino in Manistee and at any of the Kewadin Casinos. I knew where to find the answer because I was the person to submit the question to Mike way back in 2004.

And no 1bb. It wasn't his mother :-)

Also, I have no qualms about the sale. Good for the Wizard!

bigfoot,

I get that this is a joke (and fictitious quote), but several people have recently been suspended or warned for misquoting other members (of which WB is now one), so don't format a joke like this again, please. Thanks!

Mine was Obiously a joke with the word edit, and not two, but 3THREE smiley faces. Hopefully ill get a future credit for my suspension. Obviously you favor Bigfoot more than others J/K. I know you weren't the one who made that trigger happy ban, however it makes me understand 1BB and his plight slightly better.

Could someone answer me one question? After splitting aces would you have the ability to double or stand but not hit after you receive a card on the ace, or before, with this rule/variation?

You receive your cards just as normal. Example, dealer 6 up. You split and on first ace you get a 4. You now double. Then on to the second ace and repeat. You cannot resplit aces either.

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)?


Mathematically it seems like this would never be a good idea. If you can't take another card after your first hit, you need to calculate your expected value prior to taking the first hit. If the marginal expectation is positive, then hit, otherwise don't.

Axel,

It's a no-win for me, though I'm trying to carve one out. This was JUST a huge issue for several people, including yourself, and you're right, I wasn't the one sorting it, but the precedent has been set. If I just blow this off as an obvious joke, it's somehow unfair to those who were called to account for doing something similar. If I give him a suspension, I'm further inflating the issue into ludicrous over-reaction. So I'm trying to stamp it out without issuing a suspension. Not surprised you're giving me crap over it, but if forced or overruled, the default has to be yet another suspension. I'd rather not.
