First start of the deck, dealer has an Ace up, do YOU take insurance? Im guessing a lot of us have min bets up at this point anyways (minus STers) so curious as to peoples thoughts about the subject. I feel like I might just start taking insurance on first hand dealer Ace ups because it seems to happen so much, even if the count doesnt warrant for it.

Plus I figured I would pop this question since the thread before this, is about no one posting voodoo strats
selective memory.

Evolution. If you remember the nasty things that you survive more than the good things you are more likely to recognize the threat when it happens again and avoid a life threatening situation. This is a huge advantage evolutionarily speaking. You are far more likely to live long enough to reproduce allowing your genes to be in the next generation.

Evolution?

First of all, I don't think memory of the dealer having a blackjack when receiving an ace early on is an accurate observation. Even if it were, you're not suggesting that you will pass "blackjack recognition" genes on to your children, are you? Are you sipping a bit of something, tthree?

didn't expect 2 bring a serious topic.
ppl memorize what they like to memorize, quite depend.
most gamblers select 2 remember the good time, the big win session, that is why
they keep playing after losing n losing.
