I'm still a beginner and relatively new to Basic Strategy. I'm wondering, will most casinos (especially Vegas) let you use a Basic Strategy card at the table? I was on a cruise last month and asked the Casino Host if this was allowed. He said it was no problem as long as it didn't slow the game down too much. I printed a small one and I kept it in my cigarette pack in front of me. I pretty much KNOW the BS but sometimes want to make sure I'm playing correct on splits and doubling of soft hands. It only takes me a second or two to glance down at my chart and play it correctly. Also, I tried to avoid 1st base as it gives me a little more time to decide on my initial hand. Tried to avoid 3rd base too because you catch a lot of crap for "taking the dealers bust card" even when playing correct BS. People act like you're stupid for hitting your 16 vs 10 and especially for hitting A7 vs 10. One time when I hit my A7 vs 10, a person even said 'You should NEVER hit an 18'. I told him thanks but I'll bet my way with my money and he can bet his way with his. He shut up after that. Although I'm a beginner, I'm sure I was playing 'smarter' than most I saw. I'm still practicing lots and this website is great for that, but do still like having my BS card there as a crutch. So, what is your experience with this or what do you think? Anybody used the BS cards at the tables or been not allowed to use them?
