If you offer a player BJ advice and the next words out their mouth are Yeah, but...
You have just wasted your time. Case's in point.
In a BJ tournament where BJ's pay double, lady was taking even money.
Explained to her it was bad enough to do, at the table for 1 1/2, even worse with 2 to 1 payoff.
"Yeah, but...... I once moved on to the next round by $25 ( the min. bet) by doing it.
Casino offers even money when you have a BJ and they have a Face card.
The only thing worse than them offering it, was the guy who was taking it. I told him the odds were 12 to 1 against the dealer having a Ace under the face card.
Yeah, but.....I didn't take it a while ago and he had the Ace.
Hard to argue with logic like that.
One other thing I have noticed, when you reach a certin age everything you have, starts to wear out, fall out or spread out.
