If you have a choice of casinos, choose one with a
greater number of tables and less crowded conditions.
For online blackjack games, the more tables you can
scout, the more chance you'll have to find a player-favorable
games. The same goes for roulette-more tables equals
a greater chance of finding a dealer signature or
power sector. If you're playing craps, you want to
find uncrowned tables so you can get more turns with
the dice to practice your controlled throw.
If you live close to a casino location and play often,
you should assess the conflations at your local casinos;
find out which times are best to play within your
own playing constraints
happens when a player who is supposed to post a blind
on the next hand busts out or leaves the game? If
the rotation continued normally, the big blind would
skip the player who would have had to pay it on the
next hand. This problem gives rise to elaborate codes
of "missed blind" rules in casinos that
rival Kantian metaphysics in vastness and impenetrability.
The industry-wide consensus is tending toward the
dead button procedure. (The name arises from the fact
that in casino games with a house dealer, a plastic
button marks the position of the player who is in
the "dealer" position-i.e. last to act-for
that hand.) Here's how it works: when a player who
would have to post a blind is absent, the blind and
dealer positions move for the next two hands as if
the departed player were still there, thus preserving
the integrity of the blind rotation. This can result
in no small blind being posted, and will give the
deal to an empty seat (hence "dead button").
When that happens, the player who is still in last
position must shuffle and deal again; consider this
his payment for the privilege of having last position
for two hands in a row.
