    happy to report BJ tables have returned to 3/2 at the Grand. They did have 1 table yet at 6/5. The $25 min DD
    game was 3/2 last weekend. talked to host and he admitted they saw they were making a mistake and corrected it.

    So, finally some good gambling news

    That is great to see that a player unfriendly rule hurt business enough that it was reversed in short order. If people would simply NOT PLAY 6:5 it would not exist.

    I was there a month ago on a couple weekday afternoons. $15 6/5 double deck which was always empty, 1 free bet table (be careful when this 30ish high roller guy and his girl are there, total jerk, but the girl looks nice), $5 or $10 either 6 or 8 deck, 3/2, with surrender. Should only play that table in the morning when it's not crowded, otherwise some bad players will cost you money.

    3/2 is the way it should be. I will come back the next time to see. Thanks.

    Good luck. :beer::beer:

    Hope this results in an upturn in business and the DTG, and other properties, see the light. I'll definitely do my part when I visit in a couple weeks.

    I don't think 3/2 blackjack ever left the DTG, at least not entirely. It's been there the four times we've stayed since the opening. Two weeks ago they even had $3 3/2 blackjack. Didn't help me, as I still managed to lose 11 hands in a row. I love that game, but it sure hates me!

    It was their two-deck games that all went 6:5.

    Many of us who play blackjack downtown are only interested in double-deck games... sure, there's the Golden Gate "exception clause" that kicks in at night, but other than that - two-deck games only for me!

    Do the "bad players" steal your chips?

    I was just there this past week. There was a $5 6 deck shoe that was packed, an empty free bet game, and I played at a $15 2 deck 3-2 game. Friendly dealers, good drink service. This was on Mon. and Tues nights
