BJ rules that always worked for me%%%%%%%%%
 
Stand on 17 or above
hit a 11 or below
hit on 12/16 if dealer up card is ACE/7
Stand if dealer up card is 2/6
split ace's & 8's
No split 5 or 10
split 9's if dealer up card is 2/9
No split 2/7 unless D's up card 7 or less.
 
Follow these you will win over 50% of the time.

you can split aces but if you get another ace you cannot split that ace when you get aces you only get 2 more cards period no matter what they are . i did not mean to sound like you cannot split aces only that you cannot split the third ace vegas rule . now with any other cards like 33 and then you get another 3 yes you can split again and then even if you get another 3 but with aces you cannot do that

You can accuse me of embellishing all you want, Pepster. I could be wrong, but I believe MGM allows two splits on aces, you just cant double down. In any event, the hand in question happened exactly as I wrote it and I take umbrage with you and your 7 posts calling me out on that fact. I'm almost as old as you and have no reason to embellish anything. Whoever needs to embellish about a Vegas trip either can't afford to be there or is in fact, not there......Should I put you in contact with my host? Maybe she can review the tape.

never heard of splitting Aces on the 3rd time, but I dont think Fish is a liar. Maybe the dealer fucked up, maybe they do allow it there. Anyways, good story. Ill be there July 12th-16th

Went back downstairs and got on a nice run. Made back a couple grand in a matter of minutes. However, I kept drinking and pissed it away by the time the sun came up. Snuck back into the room and grabbed a credit card, kissed the wife good morning and headed down to Mandalay Bay. Was hoping to see Karen from my super bowl trip, but no luck. Dropped 500 and headed back to MGM. On the bridge between NYNY and MGM I got propositioned by a hooker and allowed her to escort me back to the elevators and I told her I wasn't interested. Went to bed down 12 grand for the trip.

Woke up about noon in the room by myself, but my wife had ordered some coffee for me and it was still hot. She went over to M&M world and bought a few things for our son and the babysitter. I was back down at the tables when she found me getting my behind kicked again. She shut me down and we went for lunch, then headed for the pool. She had already arranged for a massage for me which was really great. Then we chilled in the pool for a few hours and went upstairs for another nap. We had tickets to see Lewis Black at 8pm and we slept so late that we almost missed it. We walked in as the opening act was starting up and he fucked with us, but it was all good because he was really funny. Lewis Black was great, but he kind of got on my nerves a bit with all of the political garbage. We grabbed a pizza at the Studio Cafe and took it up to the room where we both fell asleep........

Fish, it sounds like your trips to Vegas are consumed with mostly just gambling.. of course mine are as well but I always make it a must to watch a good show.  Cirque Du Soleil shows are always a must on my list when I'm in Vegas.. I'm sure your wife would enjoy watching it as well..

btw, in case your wondering, my trip to Vegas wasn't very successful either.. Lost an arm and a leg at the Wynn.   Luckily the few bets I made in the playoffs while I was there put me at almost even for the trip but just about everything was comped so overall the trip wasn't bad.  I'm planning to go back for new years since I've never rung in a new year in Sin City yet...

Sink, her name is Chris Hinchcliff

To the rest of you.....sorry that I haven't finished. My Mom is very ill and I've been spending a lot of time with her at the hospital. I've also had a lot of work out of town and haven't had a great deal of access to a computer.

This wasn't a winning trip, but we had fun and I'll fill you in on the end of the trip as soon as I can. Thanks for your patience.

to the guy who was challenging fish that you cannot split aces multiple times, it all depends where you are.  In the high roller pits at Ceasare's you can continue to split.  In the outlying areas you cannot.
