Went to Rivers here in Schenectady, NY last night. They only had 1 table open. About 6:30 ish. I sat down and was asked to wait a hand by the dealer.

No problem. I put in my $60. Thereís 4 others besides me. Iím sitting 2nd to the right.

your the type of person i feel bad for... although you should feel bad for me and you because were both suckers playing side bets... but i usually never forget to play the side bet

side bets usually keep me in the game longer than i would be as i am a min better type of person... my state has a law for casinos that they have to allow a TOTAL bet to be divided between the side bet and normal bet

we have blackjack tables that have a minimum bet of 10 dollars... so splitting it allows me to do 5 on the normal bet and 5 on the side bet

it usually give me at least 2-3 hours of playtime....

im not playing to win im playing to play though so its all about just being there and having fun with the table for me though

i even once accidentally put a crap ton of money on a side bet - more than i usually do - and was lucky enough to win when i realized what i had done after the dealer started to deal the cards

I donít play side bets all the time. But damn, the first cards dealt to me, queen of hearts ❤️

Same thing happened to the guy playing next to me last night. He had JUST sat next to me. And boom! He didnít play it either!

I had a side bet on for $2.50. So, if it wasnít him, it wouldíve been me!

And I told him, it just happened to me the night before! 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤣🤣🤣

I once put a $50 bet on this side bet and won a perfect match! That was a $1250 win in one hand.

Mind the profanity, please.
My suspension-clicker finger is getting itchy.
May the cards fall in your favor.

The strategy for side bets is either you don't play it or you play it the maximum amount.

For the word "Damn"?

Some folks in the Green Room are feeling antsy.
I figured a 'heads up' before suspenders dropped in from left field was in order.

Full speed ahead!
