just read this and i'm curious about what our resident bj experts think: ------------- QUESTION: I was sitting on third base on a blackjack game with a wager of $50 and was dealt a 16. The dealer was showing a three, so I followed the rules of basic strategy and stayed. The dealer proceeded to flip over the three and had a two underneath. The dealer continued to hit her five with another two, then a queen – which gave her a 17. She then took another hit and got an eight, which brought her total to 25. A bust hand any way you count it. What the dealer proceeded to do next still baffles me. She slid the eight aside and then took my money. I argued the call and asked for the pit boss. He agreed with the dealer and said I wasn’t going to get my $50 back. Isn’t this a misdeal? — Gary R. ------------- thoughts?
