---------------------------------
I saw in a previous question :
Split 8,8 vs 10 or Ace even if late surrender is available.

Is it the same case with european no-hole card?
1) with late surrender?
2) with early surrender?

The following question was asked by

---------------------------------
Can you suggest an Ace-Five Count betting ramp for double deck games, or let me know where I can find that information. I realize that Ace-Five is not a very powerful count, as you previously mentioned, but I would still like to give it a try before settling on a level 1 system. I have found the following recommended ramps for Ace-Five: for 6 deck games, 1 unit at +2 or lower, 2 units at +3 and +4, and 4 units at +5 or higher; for single deck games, 1 unit if the count is negative, 2 units if it is neutral, and 3 units if it is positive. However, I haven't been able to find anything for double deck games; the rules in effect where I play are S17, DA2, DAS. Thanks again for all of your fantastic advice.

Dear KB,

In 2 deck games I suggest you use the single deck betting ramp with ace five count. However you ought to consider Renzyís Mini-Count instead (issue 321 of BJ Insider at www.www.BJInsider.com/newsletter/blackjack/archive/).

Henry,
I hope I dont come off as a traitor but I'm considering jumping to the other side of the table(dealer). I'm wondering if you could provide some insight into whether not it is difficult to become a dealer & what dealers typically make in different regions of the USA including tips. Thanks,
Jayel

Dear Jayel,

It is not difficult to become a dealer. You must however be trained by attending a dealer school. There you will learn the procedures, protocols, payouts, etc. Dealers typically make at or near minimum wage plus tips. The latter is often two thirds of their salary. You can make 30-40$K as a dealer in most areas of the US. Dealerís that deal at casinos that cater more to high rollers will earn more then dealers who work at casinos that cater to low rollers. The toughest part of dealing is to put off with disgruntled players who often blame the dealer for their losses. Also repetitive motion illness is an issue with dealers because they use the same dealing motion over and over for long periods. If you want to deal you have to be able to interact with the public and have a positive attitude. I suggest you check out the dealers web site www.casino-dealers.com for more advice on how to become a dealer.

Regards,

Henry Tambuirn
