    An interesting issue. I came to Croatia with [USD] dollars and the country uses [KN] Kunas but at the blackjack tables they use [EUR] euros. The casino gives me around 97% for conversion of USD to EUR but local currency shops give around 98% USD to KN while at the casino you can take the KN and exchange direct to EUR with no fee (7.5 kunas for 1 euro). So I am playing in euros but converting USD to KN to EUR if that makes any sense.

    Dalmatia has 2 casinos with blackjack. Both seem to have amazing rules but horrendous penetration.

    Actually when it's heads up they move it to 3/6 pen which I can't even sim in CVCX and I assume is breakeven or just barely Mcdonalds wages at best

No others are worth knowing. But 15 vs. 9 is worth 1.5 times more than all the other combined!
    One typo in the list above. The index for surrendering 16 vs 9 in this game is -1. +5 is the index for standing on this hand.

    In case anyone is wondering, this list comes from early results of the project that Don and I have been mentioning recently.

    Yes, of course. Thanks for catching that.

    Dalmatia sucks for card counting. Can probably extrapolate this to rest of Croatia and possibly most of Europe as well.

    Both Dalmatian casinos have excellent rules (0.21% house edge over player) but only one table with low limits. Horrendous penetration on 6D games.

    Split, Dalmatia: Penetration can vary significantly with the best giving 4.1/6 and the worst giving 3.5/6. Limits are 5 euros to 100 euros (possible to request higher up to 200 euros) and can play 1 spot to multiple. Casino counter measures include half shoe penetration.

    Dubrovnik, Dalmatia: Penetration is off the bat terrible (3/6). Seems to be the casino's practice. Limits 10 euros-200 euros. Cannot play one spot need to play 2. Can play multiple.

    I've only been to one other casino in Croatia and it was in Opatija. Very small casino again with only one blackjack table and low limits. Didn't play the game so can't comment on penetration. Other casinos in Croatia are in Buje, Pula, Zagreb (4 casinos), and Osijek. It seems nearly all croatian casinos are not possible to count for a worthwhile EV due to low limits and HORRENDOUS penetration.

    So much for that. My sister is going to a buhddhist retreat in SLovenia in a few weeks, might tag along and play Slovenian casinos. They might take more action and thus have better pen and higher limits. I hope so. I pray so.......
