    3/2 still at the Cal and El Cortez($3 and all tables)......hate to see things going the way of 6/5. The Grand does have some 3/2 tables....sorry no details, I believe it was at high minimums. Manny still tossing some hilarious lines and eggs at MSS breakfast buffet. Great craft beer at Boars Head.....1.75 for a pint if you are not playing. The Cal prime rib was tender!!!....Prime rib full dinner for 10 bucks includes Beef, salad bar starch choice, vegie and cherries jubilee....more than I could eat. Pop Up Pizza was good at Plaza. Enjoyed a day at Sam's Town. Unfortunately I caught a bug 1/2 way through week! Being sick in Vegas sucks!! The WAX bus for a buck to seniors....what a deal!....... Airport to DT. This is not a trip report!

    I am truly disappointed that any Boyd casino would allow any 6:5 table, (other than single-deck - which every place in Nevada seems to have done except for El Cortez).

    But at least the Fremont still has plenty of TWO-DECK 3:2 tables at low limits ($5 & $10). No so for DTG... or Binion's... or theD.
    There is NO 2-deck at all on the main-floor of theD... their other 6-deck/CSM blackjack is all 3:2.
    Binion's "blackjack" is all 6:5.
    DTG has 2-deck on the main floor - all 6:5. From what I have read here, they still have multi-deck shoes with 3:2 on the main floor, although they should tell their dealers that, as the one I asked told me that all of their blackjack was now 6:5.

    Let me put it this way - there are only 3 casinos downtown that have a 6:5 two-deck table in the casino at all: DTG (every main-floor table), Binion's (every table) & 4-Queens (1 table).
    If 3:2 two-deck vanishes from the downtown Boyd casinos, I will never gamble at them again...which essentially means giving up on most of downtown.
     
    Finally have the room booked! Look for me Feb 21-23

    Call me naive, but I have a hard time imagining that either the CAL or MSS would ever go to 6:5 blackjack on their double deck tables. My group plays 90 percent cards at these two properties. We have met many "regulars" from Hawaii who are seasoned card players. I would guess if these properties went to 6:5 tables, not only would there be an uproar, but they would lose many faithful customers.

    I just returned from Vegas yesterday. I played $5 3:2 DD games at El Co, Fremont, Cal, and MSS. I did not see a $3 table at El Co (they usually have a couple, but I did not see any this trip), nor did I look for one at Fremont. Played $5 SD 3:2 at El Co as well. Downtown Grand had three BJ tables going. One $5 3:2 shoe game, the other two were $15 6:5 single deck games - as expected, the single deck games had no players, while the $5 3:2 shoe game had people vulturing for a seat to open up. Also played some $5 3:2 shoe games at GG and $10 3:2 shoe games at 4Q's.
