    He lost. His hand was 3rd from the left, the 16 (A-5-J).

    That whole table is weird. The guy on his right split 10s. Then the guy on his left stood on a soft 16, then the next guy hit his 12 against a 6. And this is at a $100 min table.

    I've never seen anything like this either. I didn't know it existed. Friggin strange as hell.

    This is a "live" blackjack table that most sports betting sites use. Thy also have live bacc and roulette and everything is on a camera.

    I watched part of his twitch stream the other day when this happened. Sorry, the game is too slow for me. He started with 5k, but the guy acts like a total ****** (as you can see from the youtube snipits).

    Well, in this guy's case, probably a good thing it's slow. Even the dealer in that first video was hoping for him and the table..."you can do it bro". :evillaugh Painful to watch, imo. Hope he can afford to lose $5k on a single hand, but not counting on it. Losing $5k in a whole weekend of online poker was plenty painful enough for me, I moved up in stakes nearly ten fold to chase a "fish", and it totally backfired. My emotions that weekend were pretty close to his...:eek:

    If and I stress IF, I played this creepy online, interactive BJ... I would have no desire to play with others at the table. I suppose one could argue that by playing at a full table you can see more cards but the whole idea of this game is absurd and seems illegal.

    I have played the online bacc. Bovada has it.

    These online live games are nice when you are too drunk to drive to the local casino.

    I'm curious if you could count on BJ. I know the table max is usually low.

    Why do you play sports with bovada? It's one of the worst online books. Look into 5dimes and bookmaker for US residents since we cannot use pinnacle. And stay away from online casinos!!!

    You are correct, my apologies. Let me rephrase.

    Why do you use bovada PERIOD for anything when you can use 5dimes or bookmaker since we (U.S. residents can't use pinnacle)? It was crap as bodog with Calvin Ayer and still crap. Is that better for you fookmi?

    5k hands of BJ are much more fun when you get a BJ.

    since we are discussing offshores, BookMaker is fine along with it's little sister BetDSI
    5Dimes is ok except if you have to ever deal with Tony who is an a-hole
    Heritage has been accepting new players and if you are a recreational player it's a solid book to play it
    Bovada is horrible except in certain isolated instances

    You are correct, tony is a pr**k but it's still a solid book. I'm already with heritage, do new players still need to be referred in by other players?
