    Dealer peeks on 10/Ace

    What is the effect of these options in CVData?
    In which case, when checked, can they lead to a loss of 0.8% of the IBA% and TBA% ?

    In most cases, they will have an insignificant effect on results. But, like everything else in blackjack, variables can have unusual effects in unusual situations. You'd have to tell me where you saw this effect.

    It's in Spanish 21

    Create a configuration from template "Spanish 21"
    Run sim.
    Change both options.
    Run sim.

    Something to do with Bonus Rules.
    Not DDR as one could think.

    Ahh, in SP21, if the dealer does not peek and you hit to 21, you win the hand against a dealer BJ. I've never heard of a no peek SP21 game in the US. In Australian Pontoon, with no hole card, a player with a three or more card 21 beats a dealer blackjack.

    While playing Sp21 I had a max bet out and the dealer didn't realize he had BJ. I hit to a 6 card 21 and got paid 2:1. When the dealer discovered he had BJ he thought for a second and then took everyone's bet, scooped the cards on the table, and kept going while saying, "We will see if anyone is watching the game". Nobody was. LoL

    I have almost never seen a call from the EITS to correct an error on the table. Maybe once on one of my hands and once on someone else's hand and once giving someone money that was taken in error. Needless to say errors happen frequently.

    Ah, OK. Thank you.
    With Early Surrender vs 10 and Ace, I can't set "Dealer Peeks on 10"
    That remove "Early Surrender vs 10" and I can't have both.

    If you want a three-card 21 to not beat a dlr BJ and have dlr peak, add a bonus to counteract the 21 autowin bonus like so:

    Dlr # cards 2
    Dlr total 21
    Player cards >2
    Player total 21
    Variable payoff of -1.

    Dealer proposes surrender vs Ace or 10, then checks for Blackjack if upcard is Ace or 10

    I would check "Early Surrender vs Ace and 10"
    and "Dealer Peeks on Ace and 10".

    I can not check the 4

    I think that this workaround does not cancel 6-7-8 or 7-7-7 extra gain ?

    Probably not. It would require more rules. It's a very odd game.
