I think (know) the dealers don't deal straight. They pull the 2nd card or put one back. I actually caught one dealer in Vegas pulling 2 cards then sliding one (10) under the shoe. One comped room, thank you!
Good luck and have fun!
I had the best experience at a blackjack table once. The dealer was this early 40's woman who was awesome. I was playing with my stepmom and a group of 27 year old college friends who get together every year in Vegas so they don't lose touch.
We were having an awesome time, I had just turned 21 the week before so the guys were totally having a blast with me trying to show me the ropes and all of that.
The dealers daughter came to have dinner with her mom (daughter was like 21 and very hot!!!) Anyway, I started flirting with her, which turned into flirting with her mom (saying things like you're way too young to have a daughter....I dunno who's more beautiful...) She told her daughter she had another 30 minutes until she could go on her break so the daughter just hung out watching our table...
The stoy continues into the next night. My stepmom, dad and I ran into the group of guys and we all decide to play a table together again. After an hour the lady from the night before rotates to our table to deal. She remembered us of course and I am telling you, she totally hooked us up.
Everytime I said hit, she would pause and say, "are you sure?" What she was doing was letting us know what to do. She would only do this when she had a 10 or face card showing and she saw what the other card was. If she knew we had her beat she would warn us by saying, "are you sure?" She also would ask us if we were sure we didn't want to hit, if she knew she had us beat.
I have never won as much on anything as I did that night. I don't do too much gambling, but I won like $300 that night at the table.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...
