    Strangest game of blackjack I've ever seen. Only in Ireland ????

    Been getting back into counting again after a 15 year break. Thought I'd take a trip down to Ireland last night hunting for good games.

    Whilst I was able to find some decent games with good pen etc. I came across the strangest game I've ever laid eyes on??? it's got its own separate table, thankfully.

    Bj pays 2:1 unless the dealer has bj in which case the dealer wins against all. Dealer also doesn't bust on 22. If they hit 22 then its a push against all hands except those holding bj. Players are also allowed unlimited splits, double any 2 cards.

    Not even entertaining trying it, just thought it was worth mentioning. I'd imagine this kinda action will never be found anywhere else on the planet ???

    Unfortunately, the push 22 rule is finding its way onto a lot of felts. Here in Australia, Crown Melbourne utilises this rule on low limit tables. Ironically, it's called 'Blackjack Plus'. Not sure what the plus signifies, it adds -6.91% to the HE.

    Really? I thought it was just an Irish thing lol. Been in Crown Melbourne a few times over the years.. never paid much attention to the tables, was too busy getting lit. One of my favourite cities.

    Sahara Las Vegas has at least one "Push 22" table...

    Pushing at 22 gives casino a great advantage. Any new BJ is not for the benefits of players.

    I've noticed on YouTube since all the covid stuff the vegas casinos seem to be a lot more relaxed about people recording stuff compared to the last time I was there about 10 year ago. I suppose they probably appreciate all the free advertising these days. Pretty sure Sahara changed names and changed back again in the last 10 years too.
