I was wearing a "Bowling Shirt". otherwise know as my BJ shirt, and people asked me if I was there for the convention. BTW I do not bowl.

If they start to argue, I then ask them if I can double down or split after the first round. If they say "of course" then I ask why not the BJ bet then? It even works occasionally. Remember, in SD your frequency of a first hand BJ is one in 20.7, so go do the math.
Nice manipulation, bj bob! The next time I'm at this dump, I'll keep this in mind.

I haven't been up there in years. The few times I have, I remember the game conditions being rather sh!tty. 67% pen on the 6D, 50% on the DD, and some kind of restrictions on raising your bet. This was also before they had an alcohol license, so you couldn't even tread water for free drinks. Has it improved at all?

Yes things have improved. There is about a 6 - 7 deck pen on 8D. I haven't seen too much DD but I think it's about 75% pen. As far as raising your bet it's 5X max your previous bet, and I think no more than a $100 initial bet. And they can sell you alcohol but they cannot give it away. They do have free non-alcoholic drinks.

The 8D table I go to is DD any two, $5/10 min with $200 max; min. dependent on the time of day. BJ pays 3:2. I think there is a surrender but am not sure. I haven't noticed any heat.

But, there are lot's of CSMs and DD on 9/10/11 only. But I just stick with the 8D shoe game.

They seem to have 1 SD table that pays 3-2, and its usually crowded.

Haven't noticed the 3 - 2 SD. But that might be in the HL Room. I'm still a red chipper.
