... in response to questions raised by some players about the issue. Adhoc was gracious enough to take the time to research the matter and tell folks what the state of the law was in such a situation. As to whether or not it would work, there are a lot of variables that would have to be considered, but so far as I know, no one has ever tried it. Assuming that such a strategy would not work is simply making a guess. Much of it would depend upon how serious the detained player is and how far he is willing to push it.
I think you would be surprised at how many green chippers never dream of becoming a professional player. Many of them are quite successful in their own professions. Adhoc is a successful lawyer and he is not the only one posting on GC. We have MD's, engineers, college professors, accountants, small businessmen and other successful professionals on GC who have probably never wanted to become professional blackjack players any more than they ever wanted to be professional bowlers, but they enjoy the game nonetheless and are willing to share their experiences and knowledge with others.
Do you have some insights about the game that you could share? It would be nice to see some of this much-vaunted professional experience that some posters claim to have evidenced by posts about the game, rather than posts that do nothing more than criticize those who are willing to share their knowledge. If one were to judge the blackjack knowledge of many of these critics by the content of their posts alone, one would have to conclude that it is zero.
