Today I was out of town for work and stopped at a casino that has real BJ tables. My local casino only has electronic BJ and the last time I played at a real table was 20 years ago (betting $5 per hand with no clue what I was doing). I was a bit nervous but I quickly said that it was my first time playing at a real table and everyone was pretty good about it. The dealer was friendly and advised me of the hand signals etc so I felt comfortable very quickly. I've been too chicken to sit at a real table when I've had the chance but I'm glad I finally did it. The table min was $10 and max was $100. Good rules from what I understand, 3:2, S17. I bought in for $500 and played about 1 hour. I bet $25 - $100 per hand, tipped $5 on each Blackjack (had 3 in total). Left up $585 and had a blast. Wished I could have stayed longer but probably would have lost it all! Now I can't wait to go to Vegas and play, I will never feel uncomfortable at a real table now. Thanks to those who have encouraged new players to just go for it. I felt like a pro once I learned the proper hand signals etc for splitting, doubling hit, stand etc. Much different than playing electronic and way more fun!
