    Hitting Hard 17 and Heat

    Hey guys!

    Hitting Hard 17 is at times the better play, especially at double deck.
    It raises eyebrows every time from both players and dealer and I wonder if it's worth it
    considering the attention it gets even if a minimum bet should be on the table at that time.

    I have seen twice the dealer yelling to the pit boss "HIT SEVENTEEN!" and that was at 6-deck.
    I suspect Tarzan has the system to use it most often, unless he considers it's not worth the attention.

    What's your casino experience with this move?

    This means the count is heavily negative which then means you have your minimum bet out so drawing attention is kind of a silly decision as your minimum bet is simply not worth attracting attention.

    I would be more concerned if the dealer vociferously announces, "Hitting soft 18!"

    Would a large bet be treated differently? While playing at the Sahara, I remember splitting tens versus the dealer 6 at a high count as the pit boss was watching. Eventhough I was only betting two green at each spot that did not save me from getting the tap on the shoulder. Hitting seventeen in a negative count is just an invitation to end your playing career at the casino.

    One time I split TT v 5 with $500 up in shoe game and won both. There was no heat afterward so it depends a lot on their perception of your skill level.

    ZeeBabar, what is currently wrong with you? The above quote makes no sense at all.

    Indeed it makes sense. Try hitting your hard 17 and splitting tens either in the Sahara or TI and you will be shown your retirement notice, it comes with no pension unfortunately.

    The OP was asking about hitting a hard 17.
