Default Banned from Fallsview

Hello,

I have just been banned from playing blackjack, I tried clicking on your link, but it's not finding that page.

They would not give me a written notice, and they said they didn't have to, I asked why, and he said he would not tell me and didn't have a reason to.

I have a lot of money, and would love to find a lawyer if what you say is true and put my ammo (money) into owning these ****s. Excuse my language.

Looking forward to a speedy response.

Default No Win

This is a no win situation for you Banned, just learn to let it go.

What do you want? If its money you're after then just find another casino, your action is not welcome at fallsview anymore.
As for legal action, if you sued for wrongful ejection or whatever, you might win the right to play again, but the suit wouldnt be for much money as the damages you incurred were very small.
And if you won the suit, not only would every casino around know your name, but Fallsview would just halfshoe you, as countermeasure are not illegal.
So, you mentioned you wanted to make the casino think twice about acting the same way to someone else, and using the lawsuit for that reason. This is a waste of time and EV, and it sounds like getting back at them for the wrongful treatment of them to you. Is this a good enough reason for your time?
Just let it go, man. And good luck in the future.

Default Casino Rama

We are headed up to Toronto for a couple days and thought we might stop by Rama. Any updates are appreciated.

Many of the dealers are slow slow slow, which does make it easier to count.

I don't think I saw a CSM. Some tables use automatic shufflers. A lot of the tables use HAND SHUFFLE-- and a sloppy one at that. I had 3 TC >2 shoes in a row on the same table. If you are any good at shuffle tracking, you'd be in heaven.

They have two rows of BJ. There's about 10 tables clumped together near the slots. Then the next row of table games is all 21 and 3-Card Poker, etc. But if you go another row or two past that, there's another clump of blackjack tables. Those seem to be less populated.

No heat, even when backcounting, wonging, and laying down blacks. A ultra-whimpy "checks play" is called, but the critters neither respond to it, nor do the dealers wait for the critters. The critters barely even check the shuffle.

The dealers are fairly good with their holecards. They use one of those "stick the corner of the hole card underneath a piece of plastic" dealies for blackjacks. The nub is /just/ slightly higher than the table, but the cards are easily slid into place. however, I did see one dealer who bent the cards and lifted them ever so slightly to check. I was back counting and not playing, but I suspect someone might be able to catch a glimpse.

Truthfully, I think they keep all their sloppy dealers in the poker room. They deal so SLOW its painful. AND some of them toss the cards out so high, that I could catch glimpses without even lowering my head. Bad.
Just my opinion, but I think this post contains a bit too much info, especially since the casino in question has been named. A simple, "I found some interesting things there. PM for details." would have been sufficient.

That post was 4 years old and quite inaccurate with respect to current conditions (many asm's and some csm's). My 4 year old posts in this thread are also complete BS with respect to the realities of theory vs practice and I wish I could delete them. Experience has proved to be the best educator and yields the greatest EV.

What we found there yesterday was 8 deck ASM cutting 1.5 decks with a cover over the shoe hiding all the undealt cards. The damn hole was packed with Asians and Indians wanting to piggy back our green stacks with their dollar. Interestingly I did see one bold fella double a black stack with ace four against a dealer ten.

After about an hour and a half of pushing the locals dollar back to them the wife and i were back on the bus and headed back over the border. But all was not lost and we had great couple days in Toronto.

What I found interesting was the CSM spanish 21 there. Is that even possible? The only time I saw something like that was in Singapore and Malaysia, but with no Hole card (i.e. Pontoon).
