Betting $20/hand in Blackjack, I managed to lose my entired $200 deposit in THREE rounds. :eek:

See if you can lose that much that quickly when you are TRYING to -- I did it playing correctly!

Just wanted to publicly cry. :)

Hi Chalupa; If you dont mind me asking, which casino were you playing at? It's awfully peculiar to me to see that you had 4 sevens suited in clubs in your middle hand.

Also assuming the 8 card was the up card, the correct play would have been to hit the original pair of sevens. But nonetheless that was some ugly stuff. Have a good one.

For Microgaming, the upcard is the FIRST card recorded - because it takes the hole card after the player hand has been completed. As opposed to RTG, where the upcard is the SECOND recorded in the play logs. All admittedly very confusing. So the upcard against the seven pair was a three in this instance, making the split theoretically correct.

LOL, the old "double if you want, but I'm making 21 whatever you do" Microgaming ploy. I've seen plenty of that lately. In fact, Microgaming single deck (which isn't what this player was playing) is currently playing much as it was pre-2003, before the shat themselves over the OCA and pulled the fix out. See my three consecutive 11 doubles in the "Nightmare" thread - all of which were sucked out to a dealer 21. I've seen plenty more of that subsequently.

Thanks for clearing up the hole card issue Caruso. I thought it would be strange for Chalupa to be deviating from basic strategy. Have a good one.

All the plays are BS. As are the results. :)


cipher, the casino is Platinum Play (Microgaming). Wish I was playing Spanish 21 with all those suited 7s. :)


caruso, what is "OCA" that you're referring to in regard to single-deck? I had another $200 that led a short happy life at another Microgaming casino yesterday at single-deck... and as you said, every time I doubled 11 vs a big bust card I'd get a 3 or something, then dealer flips over an 11 and gets the 10. Grr.

A4 v. 6 is a double under any rules - v. 4 & 5 too, come to that.

The Online Casino Analyzer was a player-initiated, funded and run software regulation project. It collected several million hands from all the various platforms, from the play of about 200 players, in an attempt to get an accurate measure on the house edge those games produced and thus their fairness. Unfortunately, the first two Microgaming reports were ridden through with errors as the data hadn't been sufficiently checked and there were some serious bugs. The project lost a lot of credibility as a result, and I can't realistically see it ever recovering.
