Default Played at Cal-Neva last night.

$3 min. SD. DD on 10/11 only; no DAS.

Anyways, was losing at Harrah's so I went across to the street to CN and made a few $. The dealer and the other players were calling me "Rainman" since I was winning.

Does it seem a lot of players there lose more often?

According to the dealer, Harrah's pays 6:5 on BJ during the day on all SD; SD is all they have. They open up other the other pit later then they pay 3:2; I think it's on the 6/8D shoe only though.

With those rules they should call you "Superrainman"!

Small world, I was in there on Monday. Had a very good 1 on 1 session. Walked through Harrahs and laughed at their games. Why play there when you have better games to play at other stores? All the bowlers in town were playing at Harrahs.

Can anyone explain their 17-1 blackjack promo? Sounds like BS (Bullsh!t, not Basic Strategy), but I didn't have time to look into it.

Quite possibly also because you were counting.

They still have that going? I thought they would have run out of idiots a long time ago. Maybe I still hold out too much faith in the current gaming public. Stupid me!
To answer your question. They pay off 17:1 for a BJ off the top of their SD game, so a $1 sidebet pays you $17, it's that simple. When I'm (rarely) there, I like to confuse the rookie gals and tell them that I thought the bet was for the hand AFTER the first round. If they start to argue, I then ask them if I can double down or split after the first round. If they say "of course" then I ask why not the BJ bet then? It even works occasionally. Remember, in SD your frequency of a first hand BJ is one in 20.7, so go do the math.

Darco,

Are you in the S.F. Bay Area? Ever make it up to River Rick in Sonoma?
