If anything that might be a little low. And some speedy dealers would be insulted if their numbers were that low.



Um, no.

There are a lot of factors involved but 250+ hands per hour is not at all uncommon at a 6 deck game with heads up play.

Iím pretty sure that Iíve read some place that it doesnít make any difference if you play alone or with multiple people.



For the card counters, the less people around the blackjack table - the better. That way, the card counters will get to play many hands during a positive count, and increase their profits. When the count is positive, the card counter can choose to play multiple hands, and a single hand when their count goes negative, so they can improve their winnings during favorable rounds.

Pretty sure that would be a record...

Er... uh.. maybe I meant per HOUR. Though I encountered one dealer who flicks her cards at my knuckles and I swear it felt like 'per minute' .

Not uncommon? I agree it's still possible, but table game speed has taken a serious nosedive in the last few years. With the deterioration of game conditions, corporations are now instructing their dealers to "be more friendly" to help lure in the suckers, hence the days of dummy up and deal are for the most part over. I scout a LOT of dealers, and most games move at a snail's pace.

Keep in mind that 250 hands per hour is 14.4 seconds per hand.

I think that's a reasonable pace for head's up play.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁

I was playing Texas Hold'em Bonus in AC. There were two of us at the table and the other player went to use the restroom. The dealer asked me if I wanted to continue without her and when I said Yes, he informed me that I wasn't obligated to play alone. I thought it was weird. That run of hands, just playing one-on-one, was the best luck I had all day.
