I have a little info. I went to Stratosphere a few trips ago, mid summer. Played some double deck. Pen was great! I only lasted about 15 minutes before the pit was on the phone. It was day shift. I had spread from $25 to $450 when the phone call was placed.

Encore? More like En - poor penetration! That is my joke. It is a slight exaggeration but Encore and Wynn games are decent at best.

This info is for main floor. I have no HL room experience.

You had the audacity to bet $25 to $450 ? W.T.F. ?
Did you think that you were playing a shoe game ?

I was there a couple of months ago - just before swing shift played for about 15 mins on one of the two empty DD tables.

Came back after the show, DD table limits had increased to $50 min. DD tables still empty.

I saw pen of about 1.2 dealt.

[QUOTE=FLASH1296;258806][SIZE="3"]You had the audacity to bet $25 to $450 ? W.T.F. ?

Heh, I guess I have to post the rest now. I regularly spread $25-$450 in Vegas double deck. I do this just before I am ready to head to the next place. My thoughts are that generally when green chipping on the main floor you don't need to worry about surveillance. The people working in the pit are your main concern. I am good at knowing if they are bothered by my action, and quickly leave if they are. Sometimes I'll play up to an hour if they don't care. Also I would say that when playing green, $25-$450 doesn't look much different than $50-$400. If a place will tolerate the 2nd they will tolerate the 1st IMO.

Now for the audacious part! I placed my $450 bet which prompted the phone call about halfway through the shoe. Saw the phone call and the obvious heat and decided it was my last shoe. The last few hands got even better. Last hand was at running 8 with less than 3/4 deck left. Decided to go "all in" for $1200 and change. THAT was maybe a bit audacious, and was certainly too big for that property.

I'll also say that I have played 200+ hours of big spread green this year with only one back off.

Default Conditions update

Stratosphere - some games worth playing can be found there. Heat comes from pit. You can play some but don't plan on camping out.

Aliante Station - Intense heat for bet jump in red chips. Don't waste your time driving there.

Encore - Last time I was there pen was unacceptable.

Based on my observations from 5 months ago

Strat is exclusively 6-5 (not sure about HL room- which always appears closed) which makes shoe a no go. Pen on SD is sufficient to be profitable with side count and strong index play. Pen is generally better in the party pit. I have insufficient posts to PM but if you PM your email ad I can send on sensitive information re dealers and PC as this is where I spend a lot of playing hours. Heat is low in my experience (green to light black).

Encore - pen is too poor on all shoe games. Have not observed any pitch games there.

Encore, lucky if you find one DD game in off hours. As many said, poor pen, both shoe and DD games. I will try Wynn DD with $50 min in off hour, same h17 rule but better pen.

Try the m resort. They have some of the best pen Ive seen in vegas at DD. They are big on pulling high rollers now and have been pretty tolerant on big action

I don't bother playing DD anymore at Wyncore. There are better games out there. I might play some shoe games just to get some play in.
