Fixing to head out. Hopefully I will be rolling in around 2:00pm.



As a Texan who speaks southern, I look forward to reading it even more now.

In eager anticipation mode as well! Don't be greedy like chauncy, just get 1 full row of 25k chips, you don't need a whole rack =) lol
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I've never seen $25,000 chips. They look the same color as $5 chips. LOL.

Funny thing though as I look at that rack. I am in my 13th year of professional blackjack play. I have made just under $700,000 in that time. The first 5 years were at very low stakes and it took 5 years to reach my first 100K. Over the last 5 years, playing mid-level stakes, I have averaged just under 100K per year.

But here's the thing. Less than 1 and a half rows of that rack would be my entire career earnings. Yikes. That's making me feel pretty insignificant. :(
Just say no to 6:5 Blackjack, Continuous shuffle machines and Blackjack the Forum. All are Negative expected value.

Yeah, I had to count that rack twice to get enough zeroes on it.

It's just a sick amount of money. The people that would use that rack, wouldn't think twice about it. And the rest of us wouldn't even think once about it. Either way, it's not real money, so no need to let it color your joy.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
