article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer acknowledged this site:

Too bad I couldn't find out what the specific BJ rules were at the Horseshoe!

Very nice:

"Here's a basic overview of the games promised for the Cleveland casino, with the help of Robert Hannum, a professor of risk analysis and gaming at the University of Denver whose research has been recognized by the Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, and wizardofodds.com, a website to which Horseshoe Casino officials directed The Plain Dealer in response to questions about the games and rules".

Horseshoe Casino officials directed questions to wizardofodds.com: I guess that's good that this is the go-to site for casino game information, even among industry insiders. However, they should have interviewed the Wizard rather than Hannum:

"Become a good poker player. "If you're a skilled player, you can win in the long run," Hannum says. "In the house-banked games [elsewhere in the casino], you cannot."

Evidently Professor Hannum is unaware of dice setting and Roulette clocking. Such is the trouble when one lives
in the world of academia.

If anyone needs a host here I'd recommend Darryl Margolis, he's an old Vegas friend.

Has anyone visited the Horseshoe Cleveland yet? Please give an update to the Craps conditions there...
Craps is the most "Jekyll and Hyde" casino game ever invented!

Very busy. 64 tables, 2100 slots, 30 table poker room. Bj 8 decks H17, 6 decks high limit S17. 3cp 1/4/5 AB, 1/3/6 PP. Everything else pretty typical. VP is pretty bad too. 8/6 JoB best I saw.



8/6? hot damn! That's still better than the best games here in MN.

This is the temporary location, right? When is the hard opening in the permanent spot?
