I know that this is technically not the right answer, but a guy said he was playing a table game that other players could help you win or help you lose and one of the player's said something like,"Win, or I lose my mortgage! Do you really want me to be homeless!? The guy said he was shocked that someone was betting their mortgage and luckily for everyone the Dealer lost and everyone won. So in a nutshell, any game where someone risk losing their home is a worst play.

Other than betting on somebody else's hand, and assuming that the speaker wasn't mistaken, what could that possibly be? Only thing that comes to mind (and doesn't fit all the requirements) is that solo multi-hand single deck BJ machine where all hands in play win if they run out of cards before resolving the hand.

That's when shit gets real. Having something on the line is when the FUN starts. You should try it sometime.

I don't know which game it was. It was a game like Craps or something, or maybe the BJ you were talking about. I am no expert on table games, I am strictly slots. ;)

Nathan, I think that you should stop what you are doing before it is too late.

Good point. I'm just trying to come off as more serious, but I'll admit I think I'm going about it the wrong way.

Coincidentally after reading several pages of this thread today I sat next to the ploppy king today at a $5 6D table. The ONLY hand he would split was tens, and the first time he did was against an ace. You know the drill, gets an ace and a ten for a 20/21 while my 15 finds a bust card and ploppy wins.

I used to be worried that my local casino would switch from 3:2 to 6:5, but every time I go I am reminded how much they must rake in on any given Sunday.

Worst play thst I have seen and it was me. Swing by casino to pick up my 75 free play. I only have maybe 10 on me. I ran the free play and had about $60 left. Before leaving I check the ux for s&g in the high limit room. As I walk in a guy is standing up and I see a 10x left.I get closer and realize it is a $5 5 play. F me, I only have 60 on me. What to do, run to atm and risk another swoop in which was likely or just play the $60. I played 5 hands at 2 credit. I was dealt a high pair and one of them improved to 3oak but not the 10x. Owell decent hit but left a bunch on the table.

As someone once told me, “YOU SHOULD ALWAYS F***ING HAVE $20,000 ON YOU AT ALL TIMES!!!!” (I don’t, btw.)

Had you followed this advice, you would have gotten full value on that UX play.
