    JT this has been covered in previous threads on this forum if you want to research it but I would check out the Sieena,Boomtown-silver club peppermill and circus circus. As far as dealer hitting 17 I dont know about the high roller areas but at the lower limits all places I have seen are dealer hit 17. LOL

    Last time i was at ED there 1 deck game was 6-5 BJand the pen sucked. They were still using mindplay at 6 deck games. You can find better in Reno.

    Hands down its Boomtown!

    On their single deck game you can double down on any two cards and they pay you 3 to 2 for blackjack the house edge is only .16% they do hit soft 17 but so does everybody else. vs an average edge of .46 on 10-11 only games or compare that to 6 to 5 blackjack which has a 1.5% edge.

    If you can’t beat boomtown’s game you can’t beat anybody elses game because there are no better rules any where else in the world including vegas and off the strip of vegas.

    Yes I tried it in 2004. Tripling bet triggers shuffle. They douched me out of there in about a half hour.

    Yes, it is a great game. I play it at least once every trip for fun. The main problem is that it is only a $100 max. Some dealers shuffle up when you raise your bet and others don’t. Another problem is that when you surrender a hand they yell out surrender to let the pit know that this guy knows what he is doing. None of the truckers ever surrender. I find it best to play the ‘high roller’ table $10 minimum (lol) to get heads up. I play $10 in nutral and negative counts and anytime I have plus count I jump to table max. Sure, I’ve been thrown out of here four times but I just go back. They don’t seem to keep a record of who they have thrown out.

    Alamo has late surrender and 6 card Charlie. Knocks the casinos advantage lower than any other casino. But unless you play heads up (pretty much only possible at the $10 table), you won’t get crap for penetration. Dirty joint, but amazing rules.

    Alamo you can get good pen with two players also. The blackjack tables have been pretty empty everytime I have been there. Everyone I have played with at the table doesn’t even know what surrender is! The first time I played at the Alamo I used surrender it was a mistake. A new dealer jumped it went from 70%-50 or worse. He started questioning how I played a couple of my hands. The whole pit crew came over and watched over the game. I found out later this is a common practice in this casino to stick PC as a dealer when someone is using LS and they are playing a decent game. Second time at the Alamo I used a larger spread and no LS I did not recieve any heat at all.
