    So the normal Theo calculation for blackjack would be something like:

    Theo = (Avg bet) x (# hours) x (hands/hour) x (house advantage)

    So if I am average betting at $10, for 5 hours, at 100 hands/hr, at 1% house advantage, the Theo would be $50, and I would be comped at say 30% of that, so $15.

    What if I was playing 2-handed? Would the Theo simply be doubled to $100 (and comps doubled to $30)? Anybody know how casinos handle this?

    The short answer is yes. They would simply rate your average bet at $20 rather than $10. But I doubt the casino is rating ay BJ players at 100 hands an hour
