Good Run

2 replies • Last post

I was fortunate enough to have a good run at my local casino this last weekend, and I didn't even really try to!

My wife made me go out to the Soaring Eagle with her and her friends (LAME), and I was just going to sit at the bar and drink the cheap drinks.

After about a half hour I was feeling bored and decided to hit the blackjack table and lay down some money to keep myself entertained for a while longer.

I played single deck, basic strategy at $10 per hand. I started with $50 and worked my way up to $150. It was then that I decided to go for one last hand and put down $50. I drew split Aces. Dealer showed a 4.

Taking the risk that we all know I had to, I split the hand and ended up with two 21's! It paid out nice (but not blackjack nice), and I went back to the bar.

Shortly after, my wife and her friends came back broke, but were telling me that at least they went out on the floor and had a good time playing slots. I just smiled and haven't told them about my nice run at the table. 🙂

Haha! My friend NEVER tells her hubby when she wins, anymore, because he will stalk her until she gives him money (after he blows all his betting too big on the machines, lol).

That is an awesome run, 'Slim. Good for you! Those splits can be a bit tense, even when it seems things are in our favor. We all know how that can go.

Keep it up! 🙂
