Yes, we are.



But, we can always call the "Gambling problem? We can help!" emergency phone number: "I have 13 against a Dealer 6. Should I hit? Whaaa?! What kind'a help is THAT!" (Sometimes people who are supposed to be helpful, just aren't. That's life.)

I once watched a player split 10s... lose both hands... then complain "I always lose at this casino."

Right... this casino. Some people.

The guy I saw split his 10s against a dealer 5, so I guess he was only half as dumb.

Here's one for you. "Doubling 10 against a face is better than doubling 11 against a face because an Ace is a good card on a 10."
Casinos are not your friends, they want your money. But so does Disneyland. And there is no chance in hell that you will go to Disneyland and come back with more money than you went with. - AxelWolf and Mickeycrimm

Then I would double/split whatever I had given the dealer has 12 through 16.

I hope if I were at the same table with him I'd be able to catch the signal though and not need to see his play =).

You don't even need the signals. You can guesstimate based the BP's play.

One of my "favorites": Don't enter or exit mid-shoe or "play wrong" because it 'ruins the order of the cards'. Then I ask: "Well, what order are the cards in?" and I either get a blank stare or "shut up, you don't know what you're talking about"
