    "I hit a hard 17 against a 10 with a TC -3 and got a perfect 21, beating the dealer." You realize, of course, that that was a really bad mistake, right? Don

    Always keep in mind that casino management stupidity is unbounded; there is an infinite supply of it. Don

    AC -- looking to play breakeven for comps -- thoughts?

    Abject stupidity. They do this all over, shuffle more frequently, and just waste time, with no chance at winning patrons' money. They protect against a few counters at the expense of hundreds who would lose faster if only the morons would let them. There is no limit to the painful ignorance of...

    "Need more time to give a more accurate report but at $25 they have S17, no insurance." You mean no surrender. Don

    Suggestion: try to conceal a camera and video it. If the video catches anything illegal, such as switching the cards, you'll have concrete proof for the gaming commission. Don

    Bother WHOM? You're the only asshole complaining. Scourge of every board you participate on. Safe in the knowledge that Al won't toss your sorry ass the way that Norm does every time you make a fool of yourself, which is, well, all the time. Don

    Naw, reached max bet very quickly, then lost every hand in the shoe. Don

    What are the odds....

    The count was astronomical. I was playing two hands of max bets. I would have died before quitting, although the incredulous pit boss watching was pleading with me to get up and change tables. When this happens, it's almost impossible to explain to others why you don't stop "throwing good money...

    What are the odds....

    Assuming ALL losses, with NO pushes, losing 15 in a row right off the bat is a 1 in 75,000 shot. That's probably NOT what happened! Play 200 hands and having at least one streak of 15 losses drops all the way down to 1 in 700. For 300 hands, 1 in 500. Don
