Hand shuffle 8 deck is what I learned on. How they do it is beside the point. You must avoid dealers you can't beat and stick to those

you CAN beat.

Splitting Aces is ONLY a good idea when solid tens are running. A pair of Aces, unlike what most players think, is NOT a good hand.

Basic Strategy doesn't consider the rule that you are only allowed 1 hit on each Ace. What if you get 2 lows? Now you are sunk

and you've bet twice as much money. I almost never split aces. Basic Strategy doesn't consider the fact that you ALWAYS get one

free hit on a pair of aces and nearly always 2 free hits (every time except when you get 2 tens). So with a pair of aces, you can

nearly always hit to a good hand. Think about it.

this is a good question....perhaps this dealer was better a cheating players through clumping??

Dealers don't cause clumping. It is the card pick up rules that cause clumping. Picking up the break cards first.

No matter what casinos say, the only purpose of picking up the break cards first is to create clumping and thereby

destroy Basic Strategy.
