I've seen it . . . . I $hit you not !
I've DONE it! :grin:
There's a time and a place for almost ANYTHING. Hitting hard 20 at the proper time always results in a gain of about 15% or more in EV.
Now where would you get an idea like that?
Hit it, busted and then tried to hit it again! :laugh:
Yeah, well this guy was NO Sucker. Well, wait a minute, maybe he was......at least for the casino.
john chang double down a hard 19 vs a ten and he got a 2 , he knows the next card is a 2 with a very big certainty. he is one of the world best cutter.maybe 98% right?so ,if you didnt know him ,would you say he is a big sucker ,i certainty would.
I have a guess
Worst. Ploppy. Ever. would try to buy insurance with a dealer 10, better yet, a dealer 2 through 9. And then he would go into a fist-pumping rant that the dealer is scamming him by not allowing him to buy insurance on his 10,10 vs. dealer 6?
Do we have a winner?
Second guess: Worst. Ploppy. Ever. would stand on a low soft hand, like he stands with A,4 vs. dealer 10 or A.
Third guess: Worst. Ploppy. Ever. would stand on a 12 vs. dealer 10 or A.
Forth guess: Worst. Ploppy. Ever. would do a terrible pair split, like splitting 6,6 vs. dealer 10 during a high count.
I'm throwing a lot of crap at the wall, something's got to stick here.
I seen ploppies that split every pair they get, even fives. It doesn't matter what the upcard is.
I saw a guy that doubled everytime he had a total of exactly seven against any up card, and never doubled any other hand!
Do what the next guy is doing!
I gave off an unintended aura of competence one day. The guy next to me, won over by my winning double downs, doubled all his hands for the rest of the shoe!
so ,what is the answer?
I saw a guy stay with cards totaling 16 exposed, plus his two face down cards. Dealer was paying 18 and flipped over the guys cards- an Ace and a ten. He had hit a BJ, then busted and decided he'd try and bluff the dealer.
He said he thought a BJ was only black Ace and black jack. He thought the seven gave him soft 18 so the only card he could bust on was a ten or a nine so he took a hit.
After being yelled at and told not to try bluffing, he did it again a few hands later. He also counted with his fingers.
Playing the machines at the Trop two Super Bowls ago, tablemate accidently hit the double button instead of split with two tens . He got an Ace. Awhile later, he did the same thing with the same results. Now he was convinced that doubling two tens would bring an Ace everytime. About five minutes later, he did it again and found out he was mistaken.
He was a Saints fan, so all went well that day.
The same fingers he used to pick boogers?
Doubled down on BJ . OH ! I did this in a tournment LOL
