Axel! you may have a career as a humorist!

Agreed! That was extremely well-written!

Best part is knowing it was written with OSK.

I saw someone stand on 6-6 and double hard 6 against an ace, both on the same hand very recently. Dealer had a two card hard 19.

I'm not following this. How does dealer both have a hard 19 and be showing an ace?
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Yeah your right. It was A,8. Just meant to say it was a two card 19.

It’s possible, but not with two cards, dealer hit a a,6 with two consecutive sixes or some similar hit soft 17 into a stiff scenario, would be a hard 19 with ace showing.

The last time I was in Vegas, while staying at the GN, I took the deuce to Paris for a little while. There was a man/woman (probably husband and wife) making off setting pass line and don't pass line bets with odds to whore comps. I couldn't care less and nobody in the pit seemed to notice but the husband didn't hedge the don't pass on the come out roll when someone hit a streak of 3 or 4 12's over a 6 roll span- at $300 a pop for them.

I just kept place betting my 6 & 8. What did I care?
