What a fantastic read throughout. Genuine LOL moments also.

Either start up a regular diary or visit Vegas a few more times a year .

Thanks for the ride and so happy you won the 7k hand for giving us so much pleasure.

This too.  Great stuff.

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots

The very last hand of the night goes to Dewi James, who finds ACES and talks Raymond O’Mahoney into calling his all-in preflop bet of 15k.  “If I had AQ, I’d call!” says Dewi.  Raymond calls holding pocket 66’s.

Great stories, tremendously good reporting Smiley

Considering the fact that it is the game with the lowest House edge in the room Blackjack is such a vicious game.

Quite a few people post on Tikay's diary that they have no idea what's going on with the Omaha hands but still enjoy the updates. Well that's me with blackjack. Haven't got a scooby why I'd want a 3-2 table instead of a 6-5 but still love reading, great wordsmithery Sir.

If your first two cards are Ace and a Ten then you have blackjack. At 3/2 $10 pays $15, and at 6/5 it only pays $12.This is massive with regards to the house edge; it increases is by around 1.3 or 1.4%

Is there no adjustment to dealer's play to counteract this? Do we get a win instead of a push when the house also has blackjack?

on a 3-2 table you can take even money if the dealer is showing an ace and you have blackjack (any true gambler never takes even money and I only ever take it when I have a substantial amount on the box ).. this is not an option offered on a 6-5 table

Many Thanks for all the kind comments...

These little TR act as a little record of the trip personally and I hope you guys also get something out of the aimless misguided ramblings Smiley
