Reader Poll Replies:

I like the old way of hand held 21 games and a person had a chance of winning.  Walt  Peoria Illinois

In my limited experience, 4 years of playing black jack, I have had my best luck with those multiple deck table games.  Beverly Florida

I prefer single deck of course. If I am going to play Blackjack, of course I intend to count cards. Eric Rowley  Las Vegas, NV

Single deck, I'm not a card counter, but single deck has only 4 blackjacks possible before a new shuffle. jim  Las Vegas, Nv

we prefer a double deck and if you can find one a single deck is next on our list, this seems to us to provide the best chance of winning to us. Hate and I mean Hate the shoe as far as who shuffles it really doesnt matter seems to go faster to have one shuffleing while we play.  Barbara Knick  Normal/Illinois

I like the automatic shuffler because it takes less time for the shuffle. I'm a novice player, so I just enjoy the game. Barbara Schroeder  Skokie IL

well obviously a single deck game has the best odds. the reason hardly any single deck games are around anymore is that a good card counter can cash in. its the reason they went to multi deck blackjack. sure i would prefer single deck games. thats a no brainer. but casinos got smart and realized that dealing from a shoe with several decks makes it
much, much harder for the player. hence hardly any single deck games. and
the only reason you don't see much of a single deck delt.  Ralph  Hamden, CT

I prefer to play 6-deck shoe games as long as the specific rules (such as double after split, late surrender, dealer stands on soft 17, resplit aces, atc.) are player-favorable. I'm somewhat from the old school and like to see a dealer shuffle vs either continuous shuffling machines or automatic shufflers. The location of the cut card placement in a shoe game is also quite penetration depth. I think most all of the above factors lower the house odds ..and thus my expected value.  Chuck60 Las Cruces, NM

single deck is the best.I don't count cards but any one can tell when the high cards have been used up in a single deck. Autommatic shuffer is best. It takes person out of it.  Stephen Goodwin Sedalia,mo

I prefer dealer shuffle. I enjoy the short break, giving me the chance to speak with the dealer and other players while I wait for the shuffle. It's seems more personal. vince ferrera
