Just an update to this post. The DelRay hotel in downtown San Jose has a legal casino. It has been a couple years since we were last there but If I recall correctly the BJ was 6/5, 6D, DAS, hand delt, 70% pen.
Back when I was there I was not so accomplished in counting so I really can't give you a realistic value on the game but given the 6/5 BJ that would be enough of a not worth you're time. There was also another casino just a couple blocks away.
In Costa Rica even though there are many American's there in San Jose I personaly would not be applying anything but limited advantage play there for fear of ending up in a dumpster.
On a lighter note the Marlin Bar has one of the best collection of young ladies on the planet.
Just to clarify a few things yes they girls are young there but from my best recollection most were in their early twenty's range, no 14 year olds for sure.
There is about 100 to 150 of them on any given night in the that bar know as The Blue Marlin (no affiliation with myself) located in the lobby of the DelRay Hotel in downtown San Jose. http://www.delreyhotel.com/
The ratio of ladies to men ten to one. Knowledge of the Spanish language is not required. Cuban's, Columbian's, CR's, Equador, Dominican Republic, you name it. Looks like the damn United Nations.
A hell of allot of fun and some place that every red blooded male must do just once in his life. The fishing is great there too but it was too hard to get the crew away from that damned bar for a couple days. :grin:
