    Do you believe in a 'hot' spot/seat in a Blackjack (21) game ?

    you know... you sit down at 3rd base and can never win regardless but 2 spots over to your right some chick cant lose

    do random seats get 'hot' ?

    1st seat is always the best

    why ? because the flop isn't messed up
    by other players on the table.

    trick to winning blackjack on tables
    is martingale and selective surrender.

    i usually prefer to play on unattended tables
    unless i'm just socializing.

    What is "the flop" in blackjack?

    No, there is no hot seat. Like any hot streak in gambling, a hot seat in BJ is just a hindsight construct

    No long research here but the more you think about hot/cold seats and guys messing up your cards/plays the more tilted you'll get and the worse you'll be in the long run. I try to not pay attention to whats happening around me outside of a simple count of course

    Not for nothing but i used to deal double deck blackjack after work everyday to the guys and girls i bartended w in college. Just small plays - would play for tip out money and all that. Every game one seat was hot. Never same seat but while I (dealer) would be up most nights, one seat every night would win 80% of the hands. And this is with guys doubling on 13 and splitting 4s and all kinds of crazy shit. Didn't matter. So I'm a believer that a seat can be hot.

    Nope I just don't see how this makes any logical sense. If someone plays against the book the only odds they are affecting are their own. Now will I blame the dude next to me that hits on 13 with the dealer showing a 6 and takes his bust card? Sure I will but really in my own brain I know logically that isn't true. Oh yeah I've been dealing blackjack for 16 years now.

    As an engineer, I believe in the power of numbers and probability, so I don't care what someone does before or after me. Cards are cards. I always like to sit at first base though so not to catch bullshit from a horrible player doing stupid shit.. BUT,

    I am a firm believer in good luck and bad luck. There's certain tables and dealers that I am certain are bad luck for me. I can't win with certain dealers for nothing. They come to the table and I am fukked. Then there's other dealers that I always win with. I don't try to explain it, I just go with the flow.

    I was sitting at a table where a guy came up and asked me if I wanted 1st base or 2nd (I was kinda sitting in both spots). I told him I wanted 1st base and would you believe that he did not lose a single hand in 3 consecutive shoes of an 8 deck. He was playing $10 a hand and could not lose. He was up like $400, all giddy and I said to him, dude you haven't lost since you sat down, press your damn bet. He followed my advice, as I kept telling him to add 10 more, add 50, double up, etc. The second half of the third shoe he made $2k. He left the table damn near in tears he was so excited. He did not lose a damn hand. The guy hugged me and tried to fkn kiss me when he left. Another guy jumped in his seat when he left and couldn't win jack shit.

    Another time, I was losing my ass at a table. Guy sits down and was doing the most stupid shit I've ever seen in my life. He was doubling down on all 12's (WTF was he use to playing 22 in LA??), guy would hit 17, split 6's into dealers 10. I was like, "no, don't do that", "please don't double" and the guy was hitting every damn thing. We could not lose. He would stay on like a soft 17 and the dealer would break. It was like he could see the cards. I tried to instruct him but realized real soon to shut my damn mouth as I was losing my ass playing "Smart". That guy brought so much luck to that table. Several more people sat down and they tried to tell him "what to do". I had to tell them to let him do his thing and we all won. Incredible.

    My 2 thoughts in the casino are... "I rather be lucky than good" and "I rather be wrong and rich than right and broke". lol

    I was like 20 years old... many moons ago playing at Windsor Caesars (Canada).... and it was around 1AM.... this black old man kept telling the pit boss... "This kid is fukking up the deck... he stands WHEN HE'S SUPPOSED TO HIT!!!"

    I was like bro... I'll play my fukking hand the way a fukking want.

    We almost went at it. Pit boss had to calm the black dude down.


    I still laugh at this guy... "HE'S FUKKING UP THE DECK!!!"

    There's no such thing as a hot seat. Obviously some allow a player to see more cards that have come out, but we can debate forever how much of a perceived advantage that might be.

    May not be same thing, I was at charokee before they got live cards. 5-man table with a dealer that gave chips but it was a elctronic BJ table. $5 min and $50 max. Lost $200 and got last $20 out of ATM and got hot as fire and ran them up to $3500. And I lost a lot before I stopped at that $3500 cashout. Had the dealer and put guys starting at me constantly like I was doing something. Lol

    I had to pull a douche right off his chair at a local indian casino because he didn't like how the ladies in the seats in front of him were playing and he was losing his ass. He started making comments and getting beligerant, one of those ladies was my wife. I got my shots in and got booted but is was so worth it. No hot seats. I did get a fist bump from the dealer who was also growing tired of this guys antics. $3 table on top of it.
