    I was playing single deck BJ. I was 1st base then my cousin and then some random guy that sat down and his 2 friends watching and just chatting. My cousin and I had been at the table for about an hour before the other person and his friends showed up. We had been up and down but just having fun chatting and had an awesome dealer.

    My cousin cut the deck and the first hand that came out to me was AA and like normal I split them and hit a K on both of them!!
    Next round was dealt first card to me was A then hit a 10 blackjack!!! My cousin and the other guys 2 friends crack up laughing. "3 of 4 aces goes to 1 person in 2 hands and takes them all to BJ or 21 that's nuts."
    Next hand gets dealt and it's a J and the 2 guys watching go "Ohhhh the blackjack run has come to an end!!!" Sure enough it comes back boom A back door blackjack!!! The dealer starts laughing and all of us are like are you kidding me? That just happened? 4 straight blackjack/21s all 4 aces to one spot consecutive in a single deck?!?!?
    Thinking the run is done my next card is an 8 and we all thought it was over. Boom here is a 3 so I'm on 11.... I think about it for a bit thinking man a lot of face cards have been out and the deck is done after this. Then I say screw it I'm on fire right now I DD and the dealer drops the card face down. Goes threw everyone else and comes back to me and goes "you ready?" I'm a little antsy I wanna know what it is and I'm like aaaaa yeah let's do this. Flips the card it's a J..21!!!!! Everyone just cracks up laughing and none of use could believe that it just happened!!!

    I was playing the minimum bet the whole time so I didn't make much. 10$ a hand but that was the best moment I had ever had gambling. After about another hour playing I was up double what I bought in with so I wasn't feeling to bad.

    My last hand I will put in a large amount if not all my money I am up just for the "double or nothing" feeling. This time i talked my cousin into doing the same thing but he wouldn't push in all his winnings. Normally he won't even bet extra on the final hand.
    So I push 100$ into the bet circle and pray for the best. Sure enough my cousin and I both get dealt 11. It's me and I have 0 chips on the table to bet and the dealer looks at me and says "Hit?" I go nope I'm going to DD. His response, "Well you need chips." And he looked confused. I had pocketed my buy in money so I wouldn't spend it and I would leave at the least even. Well I pull 4 green chips out of my pocket and he said, "look at this guy he pocketed his buy in!" Drops my card face down...FACE DOWN... I hate face down DD when it means something... Same thing for my cousin. Goes around to the other guy he busts out. Dealer has 5 showing flips over a 10 and I'm thinking BUST CARD!!!! Nope.....pulls out a 5...I seen that and I had that feeling in my stomach that I get when I'm speeding and I top a hill and see a cop...
    Dealer looks at my cousin and I can tell my cousin was having the same feeling I was and the dealer flips his card up.....J and goes well you needed ever bit of that card!!! So it comes to me. I got rabbit ear pockets now but who cares I had a lot of fun at this table!!! Flips my card......K!!!! I let out a huge sigh and drop my head. Heart was running triple time. Gave the dealer a tip and my cousin and I went to hunt down my wife in the casino.

    Hands down the best moments I have ever had at the blackjack table. I will never forget it and I know I will never get that lucky again.

    You got the chance to put all your money out when you had the best chance to win. No one can ask for more.

    Oh, except to actually win!

    That is a great story! I like the double or nothing aspect for your last bet. Now that's gambling! Very gutsy. Glad it worked out.
