    Just finished 3 shoes of BJ at my local....some guy (nice guy), joins our $25 table and starts betting one spot.... $150 hand....

    Got burned a bit, but ended up squeaking thought the first shoe...I'd guess even or up a few bucks....next two shoes he won basically every hand on a 1k max bet full table..and walked away...well I walked away..and he was up 25k...

    I limped away with 2k profit after breaking evening on what was a 5k high limit slot loss day...I'm happy with that. ..

    Anyone else have (or witness) a 25x bet profit in a short amount of time?

    Yes. I hit a run at Bellagio. Down to my last $500 chip. Every hand was split double down and ran it up to $105K. When I had about $25K in front of me, the dealer told me to press harder. I didn't listen because I was chasing. I would have won over $700K that session if I listened. But, I was still happy with the result.

    You know the old saying...

    Nice hit boys! Always good to walk out on the + side, eh!

    I would estimate that once per year (several times in one trip a few years ago) i'll walk away from blackjack with 25x bet profit. I play aggressively with questionable doubledowns, but every so often they start hitting. With a high success rate in splits and doubles, you can reach 25x fairly easily.

    ......Likewise, when your multiple split/double hand results in a 12, 17, 14, 16 and 18 and the dealer turns his 6 into the inevitable 6 card 21, you rebuy, and then rebuy, and.....

    Of all places Suncoast. I started with $400 at BJ. Ended up with $21K and they stopped my play, telling me I was too lucky for them that night! I've never been back. They have a history of walking off players and no I dont count cards, wasn't seeing the hole card and I'm not a regular BJ player. Just got on a streak.

    Floaters.

    It really depends on ones playing style and how hard they press when the streak starts. I remember years ago playing with a friend at MGM Grand and he won about 20 hands in a row, I believe there were 2-3 pushes for him in that. I've played double deck with one other person one time at a local casino, Belterra, and won every single hand.

    The best streak I got on was down to my last $500 and turned it into $7,000.00. It was from a mixture of blackjack +3. I was playing 25-50 on the sidebet after I hit the first few, so not sure how much of that win was actually from blackjack itself.

    And I've frequently turned $1,000 into 3,500-5k at Treasure Island in the high limit room. They use to have good rules on their double deck and S17 DAS, haven't been in 2 years so not sure what the conditions are now.

    Only once for me... many years ago...at the Riv... $25 table (2-deck, S17, DAS)...I turned $75 into $1900... (which put me up $900 for the trip).
    Then, on the way to get my bags & head to the airport, I stopped at a two-deck game at the Flamingo...told the dealer I just needed to win a quick $100 so my trip win would be $1000.
    He chuckled, and then dealt me 4 consecutive wins @$25 each. I quit & went to the airport.

    Even further back, I had something similar at a crap table... but not sure this qualifies: I bet $10 on a hard 8. It won.
    I took my $10 back and pressed the rest ($90)...it won & I took it down ($900).
    I then went & played blackjack the rest of the time...and gave back about $200 of it.

    too many to count.

    last $300 turned into 26k in one shoe
    last $1500 turned into 70k in 2 shoes
    $500 single use promo chip turned into 60k in one night
    $1k single use promo chips turned into 100k in 2 days

    of course what about these?

    55k turned into $0 in 45 min
    60k turned into $0 in 1.5 hours
    70k turned into $0 in 30 min
    100k turned into $0 in 20 min
    110k turned into $0 in 11 min
    200k turned into $0 in 22 min

    those aren't as fun to talk about...

    We do all have big losses we tend to forget and at least shifter admits them. Worst for me was $8500 in less than 2 hours at PH a couple years ago. Having only $500 left of my $9000 bankroll I hit the High Limit slot the next morning. Things are fuzzy but I remember being up over $20K. By the end of the trip it was all gone.
