Pioneer has plenty of green chip players. They have a barefoot cowboy who plays multiple blacks at multiple tables, wandering around playing a hand here, and a hand there. What they won't allow is you raising your bet mid-shoe. Your first bet is your top bet, same policy Binions had for many years.

Pioneer is the only joint ever to eject me all the way to the street, not just the
door or parking lot - all the way to the curb and me stepping off onto the road. zg

I didn't get tossed. Got shuffled on a lot. I thought going from 2 units of red to 6 units of red and getting shuffled on was just plain ridiculous.

Can you lower your bet midshoe and raise it back up to the original bet later in the shoe?

I played 2x$10-$50 with no problem. I left after I saw that the PB was watching me closely. I think I won $300 after 30 minutes? It was the shorter semi bald guy? the cowboy PB doesn't seem to mind much.

It's SD and they rarely go beyond three or four rounds. With a full table, you rarely get a third round.

Yeah. Since their tables have 7 spots.

I know of a game which on appearance is even better but I have serious concerns after the time I've put in and the loss I've incurred.

All said and good but the variance I suffered does not necessarily allay my concerns. Nor does it make me want to go run more money through it.
