    I would say DD on a breaking hand created that scene. IMO, DD on a breaking hand pisses people off more than splitting 10’s in BJ.

    DD on a breaking hand is probably the best camouflage play in my arsenal back in the days ... I had a dealer at Boomtown in Verdi blow a fuse and started cursing me out for being a stupid BJ player. Pit critter had to escort dealer off the pit. I played their 1D unmolested for next hour. This was a joint that sweats $25 bets.

    The TC was in minus territory and I was keeping side counts so the actual risk of busting was a lot lower than vs non-counting.

    Tags were 2 - 7 is +1, 10 is -1, and you kept separate side count for the Ace and for the 8 & 9. IC is very high. Great count for 1D. A lot of people don’t like the count because it’s massively unbalanced, especially when we have reKO today.

    Yeah I dont know exactly what caused it. But since it's fairly common play and people get pissed off over it, I thought it would be funny as the thread title.

    Imagine if the gentleman gave out an incorrect Vin Number. The market for tear away Hawaiian shirts would be astronomical.

    That MIGHT be Las Vegas.... but I don’t think so. Looks like an Ameristar carpet or Downstream OK. Can we place that carpet? I’m saying that’s an Ameristar carpet meaning it’s NOT Las Vegas.

    Guy "HULKING UP" is priceless. Unfortunately he gets his butt kicked. Not the way it's supposed to roll.

    How about splitting 2's?
