I might head to the bahamas sometime this year for vacation, and given that I'm already there, what are the rules like for their BJ game? Bad pen you say? -0.41 H.E.?

Default Atlantis

Games are 6D, S17, DAS, NS, 3:2, 1-1/2 decks cut off. I find heat minimal if you don't get too crazy, though others posting here have had different experiences. Comps are very tough, video poker is poor, but it's a nice venue, especially if you like the beach or water park.

Any updates on Atlantis for 2011? Will be traveling in 1 month.

Would like to know how many SD/DD/6D tables are open (afternoon/evening) and limits (afternoon/evening).

They have never offered SD or DD games to the best of my knowledge.

You will find 8 deckers; and 6 deckers for high stakes players.

Incidentally, they seem to employ the world's slowest dealers.

Atlantis has 10-15 sd 6:5 tables but I don't recall seeing any 8d.

Everything is slower in the Bahamas.

I'll do a write-up when I get back. I know you're a huge fan of Atantis, maybe I'll sit next to a celebrity

Last time I was there (~1 yr), the limits got to $10 during afternoon (weekday) at the tables by the Main Tower entrance. They were 6D though. I didn't even think to play SD. Hopefully, they will have it ~15$.

Flash 1296 is correct, Atlantis is not a beatable property. Little if anything in the carribean is even worth playing. My experience is that St Kitts is the only place a player can press big money and not catch heat. They are Italian owned and if you play...free air fare and suites are like the waves...always coming.

Heck, I did that at Dover Downs last night, and yes, I did wash my hands. I wonder if there's a point where shuffled cards become unshuffled
