Las Vegas Stories - Archives: August 2012
My name is Justin and I am from Indiana. I live near Indianapolis, and once a month, I would travel down to the Ohio river to the riverboat casinos with a group of people. I usually play blackjack or 3 card poker when I play. Anyway, on one trip, my mother decided she wanted to play blackjack at the same table I was playing on. I bought her a basic strategy book at the gift shop so she would have something to reference while playing. So we are sitting there playing blackjack, I'm losing money left and right, and she is holding her own. On one hand, she is dealt a hard 16 and the dealer is showing a 10, she says she wants to double on the 16, by this time I'm doing everything I can to stop her from doubling her bad hand, so she pulls the double down bet back and takes a hit. What does she end up getting? A stinking 5! Everyone at the table is staring in disbelief including the dealer. In the end, we should have just let her do it.
