    Just stumbled upon this casino which is saying they have pure blackjack with no collection fee per hand. Is this actual countable blackjack?

    Tell us what the conditions are. The no. of decks, the penetration, and the rules.

    Their website does not give rules and procedures and references the game as "Pure Blackjack" --
    which means that the game will probably be hideous e.g. 8 deckers with H17 and 2 decks cut off.

    I'll let you know when I pass by it on the way back from LA in a month, but have you ever seen anything like this at a non indian res casino in CA?

    This is a common game at the CA card rooms.

    No not really. Most card rooms have "no bust" blackjack which actually gives the player a 0.5% edge inherently (playing basic strat tailored to "no bust"), but the collection fee swings the edge back to the house.

    I thought most did away with the no bust thing. Oh well.

    I thought I read some academic paper about how no bust blackjack had something like a >1% house edge and an ante

    Last I checked with wizard of odds, 6-deck and 8-deck 6:5 blackjack games give the house around 2% edge. It’s quite difficult, if not impossible, to beat these games with just straight counting.

    The places that charge the ante are 3:2.
