On this, why would a -player- want the cards to be dealt face down? Not insulting or judging, just curious.



Tradition and feel, I guess. There are a surprising number of BJ players that really like the feel of handling the cards - enough to support too many of those 6:5 tables out there.

For those that don't count cards, mathematically it makes very little difference.

I am looking for double deck "pitch" (dealt face down) BJ on the Las Vegas Strip. It seems that these tables are hard to find. Has anyone seen any of these tables recently?



I know you asked "on the Strip", but good DD games with low minimums are very easy to find if you're willing to go even slightly "off-Strip".

Double-deck games are almost always dealt face down (corrected). I can't think of a single exception in Vegas.



It is actually quite common in the midwest IF they offer a double-deck game to place it in a shoe and deal it face up.

In Missouri, this is because of the state law that says no game can be dealt directly from the hand (except live poker). But even in Iowa, Indiana and Kansas casinos that offer DD still often deal out of the shoe. I suppose it means they have to change cards less. What many of those casinos do however is allow the player to handle the cards; it's just not a pitch game.

hooters has a 3-2 2deck and 1deck. i believe the wizard said the 1 deck is the best on the strip. i believe the 1 deck has the same rules as the downtown games.
