I know about that at a table game. I was referring to video BJ. Here is my problem: (6 decks, dealer hits soft 17)



Rule is 45. Donít hit a 16 against a 10 if your hand has a 4 or 5 in it.



I'll go a step further and say to look at all cards exposed, not just your own hand.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Def agree but I didnít think you saw anyone else hand in video BJ? (Iíve never played it so I donít know)
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Depends on the machine. Some casinos have machines where a number of players play against a dealer.
Some machines let a single player play seven hands vs dealer.
Normal VBJ is only you vs dealer.

If you look at those multi-player vbj machines, you will find that some, if not all, have each person's cards dealt from their own shoe, which is different from the dealer's shoe. There are about 6 pages of help files on them, and that information will be buried somewhere in them, if that's how the program works. So the effect of card removal on those games, or any use of checking other dealt cards, is negated.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
