    Norm, Attachment 4826 is the attachment I want to show. Can you see it on your end. In the past when I would upload an image, the image would appear, but now it just says attachment in blue. Attachment 4826 opens up for me when I click on it, but attachment 4829 by Cac says invalid link when I click on it.

    I just brought my computer in for a tuneup a few days ago and a lot of my settings were changed, so I don't know if this problem is on my end or yours.

    You can go to Settings-General Settings and click Enhanced Attachment Uploading off. This changes the uploader.

    OK, so they get an A for effort, but having a line for doubling soft 12 is an obvious mistake.

    Took me a while to realize that only way to have "Soft 12" is "A-A" ...

    I would say that if you are genius and can do perfect counting all cards or maybe some bizzare counting system, there would be situations, where is acutaly better to HIT on AA Than SPLIT, especialy with rule that you cannot hit splitted Aces, but definitelly its better to split Aces than DD on them(Ofc if you 100% know that 9 is coming.... )

    There could be rule, than you can DD on Splited Aces, but I doubt that, the Edge casino would loose would be enormous...

    You don't need a bizarre system to do this. All point count systems will tell you not to split aces vs. 8, 9, T, and Ace, with reasonably attainable negative true counts. For Hi-Lo, for example, those values are -9, -8, -9, and -4, respectively. As often discussed, note that Wong's indices are all one higher, as he truncated, and I floored.

    Some casinos allow you to double down on split aces. I can think of a couple in MI. Kewadin Casino and Turtle Creek casino. I'm assuming they still have this rule. In fact they allowed double down for less as long as it met the table min.
