wrong forum, but if it's anything like starluck blackjack which i suspect it is... then the answer is yes...on any two! and yes.

I don't understand all these blackjack posts. Why are 2+2ers playing blackjack online, a -EV game? And I see people saying things like, "I was up $500/$5000", which means people aren't just messing around, they are betting large amounts.

If some are up $500 or $5000, then others are down the same amount.

Yeah, it's kind of funny. People around here are usually quite shrewd with blackjack and only play for a good bonus. But Party adds a little thingy on the side of the table and everyone loses their cool...

those brilliant bastards!

You're actually quite wrong. Most (if not all) 2+2ers play BJ to clear casino bonuses, something that's very +EV.

The blackjack posts that I'm talking about are all regarding partypoker's new blackjack, which cannot be used to clear bonuses. Of course playing blackjack to clear a bonus would be +EV, I've done it myself in the past.

Because many people who play a lot of poker are basically compulsive gamblers.

I was going to give the casino bonus answer, but this one is probably more correct.

Heh, good answer.

Playing poker has ruined me for -EV gambling. I would have a hard time finding any fun in making any -EV bet now, I would just think of it as a loss of 1% x my bet (or whatever).

Didn't Ted Forrest blow a wad at the craps table after winning all those bracelets?

It can be used to clear cashout restricted bonuses, sort of.

Haha, diabolical genius, turning cashout restricted bonuses into sticky I bonuses with no WR.

B&M blackjack where a really good player (like Sklansky) can count cards and turn it into a slightly +EV game is completely different from online blackjack where card counting is not possible (random shuffles, or shuffles after every hand).
