    Did it happen JUST as you knew it would?

    Were you down to your last bucks and on the verge of cashing out when fate (read: "software") intervened?

    Was it 5/6, 4/7, 3/8 or 2/9 before the "random" face card landed?

    Do you feel like the world's biggest sucker?

    Post here!

    ----------

    I offer the following example of Viper blackjack at its best. Note that my entire $280 balance was on the table when lightening (read: "software") struck. Observe the sheer balletic beauty of the dealer draw-out. Dame Margot Fontaine was never more graceful, more perfect, more stylish, more...magnificent.

    Enjoy!

    Being some what new to on line black jack, and having seen that you are very experienced. I take it by your screen shot, I should take screen shots of every single hand I am dealt?

    Not at all. When I was dealt the hand which has the biggest difference between split or hit of ALL split hands (88 v. 7), ie. I had no choice but to split, which required a re-deposit, I thought I'd take copies since I figured I was set up for a Viper dealer 21 draw out the moment I stuck my entire balance on the table.

    I don't care what anyone says!
    That's Bullsh*t!!!
    The worst case senario, IMO, was that you should have at least won the first hand and possibly losing or having a draw on the second hand.
    BUT, for the dealer to draw 21 is....
    unf**kingbelievable!!!
    You were ripped off!!!
    It's happened to me also...but not to for that much money. My loss is usually only in the $10 range on splits.
    I give you credit for the having the balls to make the additional deposit. :notworthy
    That hand belonged to you.
    Someone tell me that the dealers 21 was not rigged.
    :mad:

    Caruso,

    I know the feeling. A while ago I posted a message how I splited 7's 4 times with 2 doubles against dealer 7 and dealer got 3 7's at the end. There were 8 7's on the table in all. Microgaming BJ sucks IMO, the splits are just plain rip offs.

    The probability of the dealer getting 21 in this situation is 7.36%, just a tiny bit less than having BJ when showing a 10.

    But, the dealer was not showing a 10.
    He was showing a 7.
    Whats the probability of the dealer getting 21 in this situation?

    I calculated the correct probability. If the dealer is showing a 7 and the player has a pair of 8's, the probability of the dealer ending up with 21 is 7.36% in a 4 deck, S17 game.

    I realize in that he lost $560 on that hand.
    In the same situation what would you do?

    What I meant was...
    If that hand was dealt to you...what would you do?
    First, I wouldn't bet my last $280 not knowing what hand I would be dealt.(NATURALLY)
    Second, I wouldn't put another $280 in my account and risk a $560 loss.
    Though I realize that spliting is the proper thing to do.

    But, with $280 in YOUR account and without an infusion of another $280 YOU couldn't split.
    Do YOU not split on the 8/8 an take a shot that YOU won't go over 21?
    Or would YOU have made the additional deposit?

    TALK ABOUT A CATCH 22 :confused:

    Caruso did the proper thing after the bet was made. There should be no argument. But the proper bet before is to always have enough for doubles and splits.

    Yes he did do the proper thing by splitting.
    I TOTALLY agree with you about the proper bet before is to always have enough for doubles and splits.

    Actually, he should have doubled down on the first hand for a total loss of $840. :)

    I would never bet my whole bankroll on one hand in BJ because of the splits and doubles, but if I did, I would have deposited more money and split the 8's. The expected returns in betting units are 0.32 (split), -0.41 (hit), -0.51 (stand), so splitting is much better than hitting, and it actually has a positive expectation, even if it did not work in this case. To look at it another way, you expect to make 73% profit on the extra money you bet by splitting. I will take a bet with 73% expected profit any day.
