Default 6 vs 8

Thanks for that info (lil late for me now, there...lol)

I was recently banned from playing blackjack at Walker Hill.
(and the frustrating part was, that i was down 2k when i was banned!)
It's ok, I made 11K the weekend prior there.
I was banned for "counting cards". Pulled aside and told I can never play 21 there again, but I am able to play anyother game.
I fault this to myself, as after a few bad shoes, they brought out a new deck and i asked 3 times to SEE the cards, and mentioned how every other casino allows this. I guess this was too much attention, b/c 30 mins later after a lil run, i was banned from 21.

I noticed that most of the tables are 8 deck, yet a couple are 6.
Asking to switch tho, could be a sign of attention that might not be desired.

But "house rule" is that they do NOT show the cards, even after a fresh deck is broken.

Default not showing cards

7 luck is the same way.

guess its a South Korea thing. But that really urks me to not see all the cards.
For all i know it has 2 extra 5's and 2 less Aces, but we shall never know.

The more advantageous part of Walker Hill is the spreads.
10,000 to 1,000,000 won tables. You can spread it thick, and even have a "surrender, ie wong out price bet". most 10,000 won places do not go up to 1mil max. Walker Hill does.

7 luck is 10,000 to 500,000 tables (and 7 luck is all 6 decks)

i don't think short deck/shoe is there, 7 Luck or Walker Hill.
but cheating is very likely in Jecho, the island in most south of Korea.

Default me either

i dont think it is either..

but if it isn't, why not show the cards???

7 luck and walker hill BOTH have this as house rules (no cards shown)

golden gate (at the incheon airport hotel) does however show all cards, every fresh deck, and they change to a fresh deck about every 5 shoes
much smaller casino however


i played at Lottle Hotel (at jeju) about 3 months ago (and 250 less of experience) I was a far less profiecient counter then...
they also do not turn over the cards either

Default Which casino if any let's S. Korean's in...

I think I read somewhere that S. Koreans are allowed in one casino in S. Korea.

Anyone know which it is and the game quality?

Thoughts of conditions at the IC vs. Walker Hill?

Walker hill usally has 2+ pit areas of BJ. Maybe 6 - 8 tables depending on the time?

I forget, but I thought IC had less tables.

I also thought conditions at Walker were a little better.

Any updates?
