It just goes to show you whats happening to blackjack. I remember reading a post a few days ago stating that Montreal Casinos are now using 8 decks. I read through the charts (Blackjack attack 2nd edition) and 6 deck and 8 deck games are just plain pathetic, I now the penetration is what really matters not the number of decks but its one of those things.. you know, kinda like having a bad player at the table is'nt supposed to affect you but really it does. Anyways I think, NO, I KNOW 6 DECKERS ARE HARD TO BEAT. Let me say it again, 6 DECKERS ARE HARD TO BEAT. My opinion is 1, 2 and 4 decks are cool but anything else sucks. The penetration offered on these games just isnt good enough. Even 4.5 of 6 dealt(which is what most casinos offer) is still a low score on the desirability index and lets not even get into 8 deckers because I refuse to count down an 8 deck shoe %$^$&*@#$ that.
