    Do any of u travel 2 Tunica. With the flood & other problems would it best 2 wait a year or 2 before going there for some profitable gambling.

    I would think they are more vulnerable right now. But also more toxic, literally – the Gulf catastrophe, and the subsequent drenching with untold millions of gallons of Corexit dispesant, has rendered the entire Gulf area dangerous to health. zg

    Aren’t you thinking of Biloxi? Also, shouldn’t these kinds of posts be in the appropriate Land Based Casinos forum?

    Yeah, it sounds like ZG may need a geography lesson.

    Was recently there for a few days. The first night our two was on a higher unaffected floor and seemed fine. Saturday I got stuck with one of the rooms no one else would use which was a first floor moldy gross room. Just get a higher up room and you’ll be fine. It is crowded though, especially craps.

    Any recent updates? I just got a CBJN and the most recent report for Tunica is January 2011…

    According to this document, multiple shops have true legitimate single deck paying 3-2. Is this true? How about the double deck games?

    Most definitley true. Ballys even has a single deck game das rsa, an amazing double down rule, p.m. me for details, also when you spread to 2 hands your playing about 50-60% pen. Table limits are $5-$500, although they did raise the once for me. The rules for pen is even different as well as minimums for multiple hands. The minimums for how ever many hands you play is $5. A full spread of 5 hands gives you 75%-95% pen. And get 2 rounds. I have done that a few times.

    Advertised as full pay game. Meaning long-term house advantage playing just basic strategy is 0.00%. I do suggest if you play this game to stand back and watch it for a while.

    They do sometimes use deck mechanics.

    I have already spotted her as a deck mechanic.

    Pretty damning claims… I assume you’ve turned them in to the gaming authority (or whatever law enforcement agency would be in charge of looking into these matters).

    Better to not say anything and be able to play than tell and be barred from playing in the town.

    If you have proof, there are ways to turn them in without revealing your own identity.

    If you just “suspect,” it’s better you keep your suspicions to yourself. Many strange things happen in a legitimate casino that you would swear must be cheating, but they are not.

    The reason I say “if you have proof” is because you don’t want to continue playing at a place where they indulge in cheating, because they might well find ways that you are unfamiliar with, and then your goose is cooked. I don’t care how knowledgeable you are, there is always a new twist they can catch you on. When you knowingly deal with cheaters, be prepared to lose. The common sense rule is, unless you are a better cheater than the one who is cheating you, you have no business gambling with them. Why give a cheat a shot at your money?

    I’ve seen this game and I’m pretty sure it was called single fun 21 and blackjacks paid even money, except for suited ones. I also seem to remember penetration being only r4 or r5.

    r5 for 1 player 2 players 3 rounds 3-5 players 2 rounds. If BLANTANT counting was not an issue I would be playing 5 hands getting ten hands in instead of 5-6 a deck. but yes sometimes I have played and for hours had to resort to standing 12-16 with a dealer 2-6 just to win. Because the decked seemed LOADED with extra tens and short everything else. You never wanted to take a card unless you had an ace. And I say seemed loaded because 1 deck would be considered negitive flux. Hell I would even say 5 decks are. But when you play for 5+hours of this and found out if you do the exact opposite of BS you win. I had my head scratching my head for day afterward. I even played a double deck that seemed to be loaded with extra 7-9’s. Again hours and hours of this. Negative flux. I dont think so. So of course I made up for the apparent deck composition and mad my moves based on that and ended both sessions ahead. Dealers would blush and get embarrassed and fumble cards when ever I made the slight mention of HOW the deck looked.

    Also it is called Single 21, no fun in it. You must be referring to super fun 21.

    Single 21 is not blackjack. Although not as bad as 6/5, it still has a HA of .65 If they are saying it is a 100% game, it is false advertising. A natural pays even money.

    Yes but you are forgetting to take int account all the nice rules for the player. And for me it does not matter if it is 6/5, even money or 3/2. A system with above average Insurance correlation can take care of anything. I know for a fact I am playing at above 50% on Insurance bets, but thinking more like 65-70%. Saves a whole lot of units that would be lost to dealer blacks. Had 5 of 7 correct insurance bets one night and 4 of those were with my top bet out. It is as if none of those dealer blackjacks never happened.

    The amateur player who knows nothing which is most of the wanna be counters out there only use hi-lo and BS and thinks that insurances bets are stupid, not to mention wouldn’t know a perfect side-bet game if it kicked him in the ass. Where as a PROFESSIONAL takes into consideration the significance of taking the insurance bet at the recommended TC sometimes being as perfect as 90% on insurance corrilation making a 6/5 or even money game very profitable. I could add so much more on how 6/5 and even money games are still very profitable for single deck. But I might just be talking to deaf ears.

    Wow. Every single sentence is incorrect. Every one. That’s got to be a new record. I guess that’s what we should expect from a “professional” who is a master of card steering, but doesn’t actually know what it is. Maybe you should stick to your thread where you ask if a card counter needs to use a bet spread. Or at least post something like this in the voodoo forum so that people don’t think it is serious advice.

    Thanks for that. I was wondering where I had missed the lesson on 90% correlation insurance bets!
