I might not be right, don't claim to be either, maybe ArgueBoy think the odds are in our favour, maybe that's the point he's trying to make. Why would you double against such cards that are fantastic for the dealer?

That's for you to decide, but what other players do has no bearing, surely?

Who cares what other players at the table do? Makes absolutely no difference to you.

Allowing surrender is excellent. That money back on doubles sounds good but I've always preferred blackjack with a hole card. Slightly better odds and just gets on with it when the dealer has pulled blackjack.

Are you not a fan of doubling 11 against a dealer's 10 arron?  Is that not really your bag either?  With or without the promotion?  Too risky doubling 11 against a 10 as it is a fantastic dealer card the 10?

Yes it is on the basis they refund all doubles and splits if the dealer gets blackjack.  Also allow you to surrender against all dealer hands except blackjack to get half your stake back.

Never seen this anywhere except some Vegas hotels.

Hats off, it's a great concession.

Can you double any two? Double after split?

I do not like the surrender thing, but I do believe that the double feature is on 9,10 & 11, similar to free bet blackjack. I wouldn't be too sure if good blackjack players would appreciate the game being played out differently because of the "offers".

Double is on any 2 cards at DTD mate.

How much did you win?

I sadly confess I used to play way too much Blackjack in the distant past (going back 30 years now) but that was always my view - it made no difference what others did, I did not care a jot.

It must be one of the great myths & misnomers of gambling that it makes a difference what others do at a Blackjack table.

I could lose plenty, without their help, tyvm.

Think about £1200, but that was due to several binks on roulette lol

Aaron is right. I wouldn't play with people who didn't play properly.


I was fishing but I didn't get a single bite.  Sad

It would be a mistake (and therefore "Not playing correctly"  not to double 11 vs a ten! Also not splitting AA and 88 vs ace and pictures would also be mistakes

My friend once drew a card on 19 and got a 2, but it led to the Dealer getting Blackjack.

The bloke at the end pretty much turned into the Hulk when the Ace came down.

This is wrong I believe. You'd double and split these hands in the US but over here the lack of a hole card turns them into hits (or in 88's case surrender if possible).

DTD's money back on double/splits against blackjack might change this to work as per the US game. Other games though you should be hitting these hands.

In essence CF it is played as the US, bar the fact we draw cards rather than the dealer having 2 in the hole, some procedures are slightly different because we have to draw to a single card. Dakky is spot on.
