That's all it was. But my max bet, because the count hasn't gotten that high, is 3X.

Okay, so you could easily bet 1x6 and if you had it out on shuffle leave the 6x but convert it to 3x2u. The next shuffle bet 1x3 off the top and lose, count tanks bet 2u, lose and count tanks, bet 1u, shuffle bet 2u off top, etc. ... but NEVER drop to 1u immediately after shuffle of 1D. Duh! zg

I did not know that. Good information to have! Thanks. I hadn't seen a $500 max sign in there since they generally lowered the table limits to $200.

And BJLFS--I wasn't trying to give you a hard time. Just pointing out what seemed to be the limited value of Boomtown to higher-stakes players.

Any double down restrictions like Atlantis/Peppermill?

I once had two hands of two units, then the dealer reached the end of the deck and began shuffling, so I pulled back the two hands and replaced it with a single unit of one hand. You should have seen the look on the dealer's face! He looked at/through me. I think he knew I was counting but didn't really care. He was giving me these "knowing looks" after I started to raise and lower bets. BTW there was this woman at the table who commented that I hit a 12 vs 6 and asked me later why I didn't do it again later. I said to her "just luck".


As far as other things. They do have seem to have a nice shopping area with restaurants. Oh and they have a Peet's Coffee. Not sure how much rooms are though.

Didn't go there. Next time I am in the area I'll go in and take notice.

Boomtown allows doubling on any first two cards, which historically helped make it one of the better single decks around Reno.
