    To not detract from the Bitcoin topic I created a new thread
    This exact scenario was recently discussed. I don't remember the exact details but it involved black Jack and splitting and doubling. So if the max bet was $10 the player bet $10 then doubled to $20 which broke the max bet rule.
    IMO the software should be able to deal with the max bet of say $10 but I think it's difficult once you get into the doubling and splitting aspect. You could split multiple times. So it's really on you as a player to decide when playing these games do you want to bet max upfront on every hand knowing you cant double or split or do you want to bet half max so you have room to evaluate your play.

    I would just never play at a casino that enforces the max bet rule in this way - as far as I am concerned, making a split in blackjack is placing a new bet, which can win or lose independently of the initial wager. It's just another con trick that reputable casinos wouldn't try!

    Yes I agree that is definitely a con and worthy of being labeled a rogue casino imho.

    I've had hands where I received two aces, then split, and received another ace on one of the hands, and a double down chance on the other hand. So of course you split again, and double the other. A player shouldn't have to account for all of that or be forced to hit a two ace hand instead of splitting.

    ^ That's at casinos with a blackjack table that allows for multiple splits / hits. I know some only allow a single split, no hits, and you're only dealt one card for each hand after the split.
