    Sad for sure. Were there other 3:2 tables around or were they all that way?

    I couldn’t find any other $25 tables that paid 3:2. Only $50 and up. It was my first time seeing a $25 table that paid 6:5 let alone a full one...

    I saw the same thing two weeks ago at Bellagio. There were 3:2 tables near by. I was playing at a 3:2 table off to the right as you're walking away from the lobby. Bellagio had more 3:2 $25 tables than MGM over the 4th of July.

    I've told this story before.
    I was at The Monte Carlo at a $10 stands on soft 17 table. Just one other player was with me.
    Right next to us was a H17 table. It was full.
    I asked the dealer, "what's up with that? Am I missing something."
    The dealer didn't miss a beat when she said, "there are a lot of stupid people in Las Vegas."

    Walk through Venelazzo and you'll see this all the time. The best thing is players will be betting blacks, when they could easily go to high limit and get 3:2 with more favorable rules. True facepalm stuff.

    Aria has been like that for quite a while, all 3:2 is $50 or more, and I haven't played blackjack there since!

    I went to MGM National Harbor on a Saturday morning right after their grand opening and saw a guy playing at a $100 6/5 table when there were cheaper 3/2 tables within the casino.

    As P T Barnum is often given credit for saying, "there's a sucker born every minute". If still alive, I have no doubt he'd be running a Strip Casino.

    As a financial advisor, I use the "full table with 6:5 at $25" as one of my primary macro economic indicators. I am adjusting my 2019 GDP forecast as a result.

    I may play $5 or $10 @ 6/5 if I am with people that are not comfortable at $25. If I see $25 6/5 I am reminded that I need more exercise and I can walk a property or 2 for a reasonable game

    I have often seen MGM properties increase the minimum at the table to 25$ or above (tables that started with < 25$), but left the payout 6/5 for Blackjack. If you point out to dealer they make effort the fix the situation. It could have been someone who requested the table limit be increased (temporarily) because they were having a good streak.

    I can top you... I was at Fallsview in Niagara last week, and saw a 6:5 $25 table LINED UP, with it being the lowest limit blackjack table in the house. There were $50 minimum 6:5 tables too. Could not believe my eyes.

    Life lesson: MGM is straight trash, and people are incredibly dumb.

    I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac
    A little voice inside my head said
    Don't look back, you can never look back

    Yet Casino Royale has single Deck 3:2. And as for playing with inexperienced gamblers who sit at 3rd base and take cards they shouldn’t and stand when they should hit, I played at a table with three friends. Third base was doing some crazy things, but we all won, go figure.
