As a father of three children I can tell you that I equate what was going on in Miami with kidnapping. If I were Elion's father I would probably be in jail by now charged with murder or at least aggravated assault. Where do people come off thinking that they can keep a child from his father?

<<karma kounts>>

I spent many hours in my misspent youth (well, the 1980s)working out the rules of what my friends and I called "fourth dimensional craps." The argument was that seemingly unrelated events in our three-dimensional world were actually connected, because they were merely shadows cast by objects in the fourth dimension. (Think of how three-dimensional objects cast two-dimensional shadows, which look odd and disjointed until you recognize what the original is and how it is moving.) This explained, for example, why the appearance of a waitress at a hot craps table would usually kill a roll; why the odds of a seven-out increased after the dice were changed during a roll; and why--most dependably--that asshole pushing his way in through the crowds to get a piece of the action spelled certain death.

on balance the system made us a good bit of change, although skeptics might argue that this was only because it prodded us to take some money off the table occasionally, thus lowering the odds that we would give it back...

All green felt quiz folks:
Doubling down on 11 into an ace? It all depends on whether you are playing with the house chips or your own. But I don't see that as permabull thinking.
In fact, I would say tekboy's AMD play was a safer bet then doubling down into an ace.


Tis it not the case that if the dealer has an Ace, dealer asks all players if they want insurance. After insurance bets are placed/denied, dealer checks for blackjack, and if so the hand is terminated then and there, without hit/stand by players. Thus, if the player is given the opportunity to hit/stand/double it is already known that the dealer does NOT have blackjack, and a double may be a wise bet.
Or am I having another senior moment. It has been a while since my last visit to the green felt Gods.
