Users ECD Posted December 14, 2014 Users Report Share Posted December 14, 2014 I had to be in NY for two consecutive weeks, so thought a trip to AC was the obvious thing to do over the weekend. I didnâ€™t wander around to any other casinos (it is winter here, and damn, is it cold for this SoCa boy), so I can only report on Bac at Caesarâ€™s. Caesars Palace â€“ AC All the bac tables are in an Asian game room located near the boardwalk entrance. I wouldnâ€™t call it a high limit room â€“ they just decided to put all the Asian table games in a separate room. The other â€œhigh limitâ€ room at Caesarâ€™s has BJ, roulette and craps â€“ no bac. There are a variety of bac tables at Caesarâ€™s, with a striking lack of consistency. There are 3-4 EZ bac (i.e. no commission) tables open most of the time, and they are, by far, the most crowded games and the lowest limits ($25). The EZ bac games are all no touch and the tables have the standard EZ bac tote board. There are several tables offering a â€œtouchâ€ game. Most of the time there were only a couple of these tables open. Saturday night there were more openâ€“ maybe 5-6, but at least a couple were â€œreserved.â€ These games are also not busy â€“ usually empty except on Saturday night when there were a couple players at most tables, but there was always at least one empty just waiting. I can confirm that all of the bac tables use pre-shuffled cards, which come to the table in a single box â€“ looks exactly like the ones in Vegas. The no touch EZ bac games use two alternating decks with automatic shuffle machine, just like no touch games in Vegas. What is interesting is the variation in shuffles which occur with the new cards when they come to the table. In Vegas, everything is done the same at every table, and under the watchful eye of the pit critters. Here, it seems like the dealer can improvise, and the pit critter pays little attention to them while they are prepping the cards. I found each dealer doing things differently, and often just playing with the cards in a haphazard manner. This is just one of the MANY ways that this place feels very different (and not in a good way) from the Vegas experience. The dealers were friendly, but the supervisors and other players were not. Supervisors seem suspicious of everything. Dealers were not allowed to break down even a hundred dollar chip without calling over a supervisor to watch. The largest chip denomination in the tray at most tables was $500. Several tables were stocked with $1,000 chips, but I only saw a couple tables with $5,000 chips. All the casino procedures were old fashioned â€“ like they are still using procedures from the 1950â€™s. It takes a good ten minutes to get a marker. They manually fill out a request form that two people bring to the table to have you sign. Then they disappear and eventually come back with marker, which is a multiple carbon copy form. The carbon doesnâ€™t work well so you have to manually sign both copies. I asked about it at the cage and they told me every time there is a marker request someone from the pit has to go to the cage to view the signature card and copy of my photo ID. Are you kidding me? Are there no computers in AC?? The other interesting thing I noticed was all the security officers walking around the casino. They wear uniforms with a badge that make them look like police, and they are everywhere! During the day, I swear there were as many security walking around as patrons. I donâ€™t know whether to be happy they are there, or concerned as to why they need to be. The environment does not create a lot of fun. Of course, for me, winning is the fun â€“ but it is also nice to feel welcomed and enjoy some laughs with the players and casino staff while going about it. There was none of that here. MDB+ So enough about the environment. How did MDB+ do? The short answer is it did fine, but it was a grind. Over almost 80 shoes playing MDB+ I have experienced smooth sailing, with a win rate of 93% of all signals. Yes, I have had a loss of the progression and have lost shoes. But I take my loss and move on to another table, where I would quickly encounter very high win rates again. It was different here. First table, I lost a progression right away, before another progression started. So I was down 7 units in 15 minutes and off the table. I had never had that happen before, and the worst part of it was I violated one of my most important rules â€“ never play the 1 stays 1 when a game starts with nothing but 1s and 2s (chop). So I was really down on myself and didnâ€™t play anymore Friday night. It got better, but was tough. I played 8 shoes total and lost a 3 bet progression 4 times. Never lost that many in one trip beforeâ€”even when playing many more than 8 shoes. In the aggregate, I won less than 50% of my first bets; less than 50% of my second bets; and won 60% of my third bets. By far, the worst hit rates for all three bets than I have ever had. MDB+ still won 12 units over the eight shoes. So with my worst MDB+ experience so far, I still averaged 1.5 units won per shoe. Greatest System Ever. Greatest F*cking System Ever! I was hoping to hit a big level up this trip, but came up a few units short. Just as well, I was getting too much attention even at the unit level I was at. It will be good to be back in Vegas where I can play big units and still be a small player. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
