Stupid/fearful. A lot of these places don't have as much working capital, either. If a casino has a few hundred thousand in capital, they can't lose it all in one night to a guy betting $100 a hand on a side bet, or $1000 on the main game.

Oh man if I owned a casino with only a few hundred thousand in capital I'd probably limit games to $500 max, max!

I mean, in all seriousness, what do you think these Indian casinos are working with? Obviously not the bigger ones like Foxwoods, but if you go into a place with 4 blackjack tables in Oklahoma, they probably don't have that much money...

Lucky lucky turned out to pay quite well. I simply bet it whenever the count was lower and I kicked some tail; after hitting a couple suited 21's (15-1) the ploppies were eyeing me.

there is only 1 casino... they have 2 CSM, and 1 shoe game during the weekdays. on the weekends, they will open 2 more tables with shoes. your almost always playing at a full table, and the $25-$500 table is only opened on weekends... sometimes they don't open the $25-$500 table on the weekends at all... unless you request it. it's a very small casino... they don't have high limit area, Craps, or even Baccarat. they have 1 pit for all there table games in one small area.

Hi Tree,

Can you elaborate on the rules and payoffs for suited blackjacks? You mention 15-1. Is this the payoff for all suited BJs or does it apply only to a single suit, e.g. diamonds?

Someone mentioned 2 CSMs in this casino in this thread. This means that there are 8 regular (or ASM) tables?

Any feedback appreciated.

Cheers,

BJ Warrior
