don't really have a favorite hand, atleast none really stick out in my mind.

my favorite experience was going to Tahoe on my 21st b-day with my dad and watching him sit down at a 5 dollar table with a hundred bucks and lose all ten hands he played. that was priceless comedy with the old man.

You need to learn indices.

HIOPT II index for 99 v A is TC +6. HIOPT II is a level 2 count.

If we are talking hands and not the hand that was most enjoyable, I like blackjack. For the other, I was playing where you could split and unlimited number of times. I split eights to a total of 11 bets (some were double down bets). Only one hand was not a made hand and the dealer busted his stiff. I had all the money I had on me on the table and won every bet.

They are the same. 99 v Ace is not an index (playing deviation) in counts such as KO though.

Foreigner, come one I wasn't even alive in the 80's and I know that! Last summer, I decided to drive for no reason because I was amazingly bored and had been amazingly bored for a couple of weeks. What comes on the radio, Too Much Time on My Hands of course!

As far as ploppies talking nonsense go, just egg them on. Best line to use when they think you are playing bad, "Not my fault you suck so much, but the casino appreciates your donations!"

Nah, you're wrong, it was Styx.

Oh how the hell did I manage to fail that badly. Now I'm just ashamed, I never get my music trivia wrong. I guess I kind of inserted the saxophone solo from "Urgent" into that song for some reason.
