    So, I've collected a handful of those push on 22 cards for The D.

    My question is (for those with a better mind for BJ strategy than me): How much does this impact the game? I think most of their games are about .5% edge to the house. If I had several of these coupons so that the rule will effectively become "I push on 22" for a long time, how does impact the house edge? Thanks.

    Push 22 helps the house 6.91% when they push according to the Wizard of Odds, but that will shift a bit for the player since player strategy isn't quite the same as the dealer. I'd assume it's somewhere between a 6.5% to 7.5% benefit, leading to an advantage of 6 to 7%.

    If it's the ACG coupon you can only use one per year. I'm not sure how strictly they enforce that, but I am sure you're not going to be able to sit at a table using a coupon every time you hit 22.

    Does this impact playing strategy at all? Say I have a 12 against a 4...I know I can't bust, so should I take that extra card? (I know the table will hate me for it)

    Yes, exactly I'm not sure of all the changes without trying to crunch it out. But I definitely would hit 12 v 4. You do in free bet BJ where the house pushes on 22.
