    You're a great deal more stubborn than I thought:

    1. I answered as a hypothetical, ergo, the back and forth is moot.
    2. Regarding your quote above - you’re just noticing that?

    The purpose of "even money" is to speed up the process instead of the actual act of betting insurance when you have a blackjack vs an ace up. Saves time and gets more hands per hour dealt.

    What is that? 1:1 is -2.27. Even vs ace up, obviously less, but still costly. Still, might be worthwhile against a fast accurate dealer heads up. Against a poor to average dealer-don’t think so.

    Don, I was remiss in my last reply to you. I forgot to thank you for I18. I doubled 8 V 5 earlier 5iday.

    You're welcome for the I18. But, technically, 8 v. 5 is part of the Catch 22 but not the I18.

    At a local tribal store a few days ago, Case 2 came up. I asked the floor if I could take even money on my Blackjack and insure, and they said yes. The dealer was shocked. Dealer said he hadn't seen that allowed in his 18 years dealing and no one had asked at this store where he'd been at for 4 years. It was DD, H17, DA2, DAS, RSA, LS and about .7 Pen with min. 25 max 2500. I think it's the best game around and am definitely cutting my teeth here and learning. They seem fairly lenient with my 1-8 spread with a min bet unit.

    The pit boss was obviously brain dead. But that's a redundancy, no?

    Don,

    Apparently it's a normal thing at this store. The only reason I asked if i was allowed, i saw this same situation a week ago at this place.

    So on say, a $10 bet, they allow you take even money and they pay you $10 AND at the same time allow you to make a $5 insurance bet? And if the dealer does have blackjack, they pay you another $10?

    That’s what he said. After all, insurance is just - a side bet.
