I disagree.......observing live play for real money has incredible value.

yes of course that is true but they must have given a reason for the trial termination. They didn't like this, they didn't like that, something.

With this concept of hold, it seems that if players are receiving stiff hands with normal frequency, but defying the odds by winning the stiff hands, the hold must “look bad”. This seems like your handcuffed because you don’t want players to get killed by playing the side bet, but if they are winning, then casino looks at the hold and says it’s not going to work for them.

Does that mean you’re better off with a side bet that wins only when the player loses the main bet? Kind of like the bad beat concept? As a player, I like the idea of winning both bets, but it may be tricky to get past the casino management and still have players like it.

In the short term, variance can go both ways. In the long run, the math will take over. The key is that players were making the bet because they like the concept.

You say you like winning and losing both bets together (e.g. Even money on the main BJ bet & 5-1 on the Lucky Stiff side bet)........what I can tell you is that you are not alone :-).

The next time you play BJ, track how often your initial two cards are a hard 12-16 or BJ, 6/6, 7/7 or 8/8. Then track how often you beat the dealer with your non-paired, hard 12-16. From what I observed, Lucky Stiff did a pretty nice job of heightening the excitement of BJ.
