    BJ house hidden rule

    I was in a DD game, head to head, got 4/6, dealer got a 8 up card. I double down, instead getting a card, the dealer gave himself a card. It was an ace. If the dealer did the dealing correctly, I would have won the hand. But no, the dealer said, he made a mistake, but according to the house rule, it calls a push and re-shuffling. I protested that with the pit boss, he sided with the dealer. Anyone had similar encounter?

    You were lucky. Where I play they would bar you for complaining.

    Sounds like you are playing in a casino that when a dealer makes a mistake, has no intention of correcting that mistake, instead the default plan is to call it a push. This would open the door for dealers to make mistakes against players they don't like, so when the player has a double down edge, the dealer then doesn't give you a card, and nullifies your edge. This would crush any edge you have for the next hr or so.

    Know of a dealer once who dealt to a full table, gave everyone aces and faces, his up card would have been a 4, but instead he on purpose didn't deal himself a card, forcing the boss to call a misdeal.

    I had a casino cheat me in a similar way nullifying my best hands. I should have just took the hint and left. As bizarre as Jaber's statement seems that is what happened to me when I complained.

    A lot of casinos do not allow the cards to be backed up.

    Worst rule there is. I've been fried on that one more times than you can imagine. Some if it us incompetence, some if it, I do wonder about.

    Once had a critter, on a rare ocassion that the screwup helped me, critter tried to move it back. Should have let her and complained to gaming. As it was, I simply chastised her on the spot, and she dims,y corrected it.

    I haven't looked it up to be sure, but I believe or at least have heard (several times) that NV regulations state a card cannot be backed up. So it wouldn't be a casino rule, but a state rule/regulation, at least in NV. But then again, NV doesn't have the most explicit of regulations, at least compared to New Jersey and I'm pretty sure Pennsylvania.

    You don't have to backup cards to make it right, just burn the exposed card, then give the option to the player if he still wants to double

    That bites. At my local stores, if it's like one card that's off, they'll either back it up, or allow the missing card(s) to be dealt next if it's too far back, and allow anyone to back out of the hand. I love when this happens and I can benefit from it.

    Yes, as it should be when the dealer makes a mistake.
