So I sit down at a $25 Blackjack table at the Taj.

I was already up $500 at this point and was just killing time until my bus arrived.

Two other guys were playing there the previous shoe and I joined the next shoe.

They were each betting $50 respectively and I was going the minimum of $25 at First Base.

Before the first hand was dealt of the new shoe, a tall , skinny dealer came in for relief.

I didn't pay much attention, until the 2nd burn card was an Ace. So I rolled my eyes slightly and the shoe started.

Dealer starts off with the usual B.S., dealer shows a 10 and either has a made hand or busts your stiff hand.

Down $100 in the first 4 hands, and the guy to my left starts pressing his bets to $100-$200 a hand, as he also lost the first 4 hands.

Somehow, I get dealt a BJ and the dude to my left has a 12. Dealer shows a 9. Dealer says "Shoulda dealt it over there!" Referring to my Blackjack.

Guy hits his 12 and busts instantly with a Queen.

I throw the extra change on top and keep the pink chip in my stack. Get dealt a 20, guy to the left gets 17 with a $200 bet. Dealer mutters "What a waste!"

Dealer has 18 and pays me $35, making sure to knock the red chips off after paying me. As some kind of threat not to bet Red chips on top?

So naturally I keep the bet at $35 and have a 6-5 vs Dealer 6. Double down for a Jack and dealer goes "Wrong Spot"

With a 6 showing, he as a King under, but gets a 3 and takes the other two players money while paying me. He says to them "This is not right"

I finally ask him "What's not right?"

He goes "They should be winning the way they're betting, I'm giving you all the good hands"

I retort "So I don't deserve to win as much as they do?"

He says "I didn't say that"

"But when you said WRONG SPOT, you implied that because I'm betting less, they should get my winning hands"

He says "No, I meant he should have been able to double down also with the money he's betting"

I go "Sure ya did, how about this..." I put a $75 bet up the next hand, get dealt a Blackjack!

He's showing a 10 and turns over an Ace in the hole!?!?!

I said "Well ya happy now, I raised the bet up and you ruined the hand for me"

He goes "That's kharma"

I go "No, that's bullshit. See ya later!" And walked to the cage with an extra $37.50.

I truly resent being seen as less than worthy of winning because I choose to monitor my bets and have a game plan of winning or losing a certain amount.

Seems he was salty about not being tipped the pink chip and having to pay red chips out at a $25 table. But there's no need to say things like "What a waste and Wrong Spot"

Just another wonderful Taj employee!

A lot of places require this for the camera so that you can't stack 3 reds but be paid with a green and 2 reds.

Oh no, he was grunting as he knocked them off and more or less hurled the chips at me. As if he was upset he had to pay.


Dealers constantly complain about players capping bets, but it's usually when it is with White or Pink chips.

You would enjoy the game more if you stopped being argumentative with the dealers.

Some dealers are just nasty, spiteful people who are unhappy with their lot in life. Fortunately they are in the minority. They don't usually bother me as long as they deliver the cards as they are supposed to.

The reason they don't like pink chips to be bet is that many have trouble with the payout in the event of a blackjack or a surrender in places other than AC. A $27.50 blackjack pays $41.50 but you'll often get anywhere from $40 to $45. Sometimes I'll correct them. Sometimes. :-)

I hope you tipped that dealer exactly what he was worth. I don't complain about these jerks because I don't want any extra attention from the pit. I would probably rethink that were I a recreational player.

Sounds like a pre-play dealer demeanor check was in order. I try to observe a little just to see how the dealer(s) interact(if any) with players before I play.

A $27.50 BJ should pay $41.25, not $41.50. Do your casinos really round up?

Yes, they must round up all blackjacks and surrenders. Don't get any ideas, pink action really slows down the game.
