Rant: Mid-shoe entry RAAAAGING!!!

Ok – so I was playing at a black chip table moments ago and, after getting brutalized the first ½ of the shoe, had finally started a comeback — out of the past 5 hands, I had been dealt 4 blackjacks — unprecedented!!!  At this point, the cute asian couple watching

Vegas July 2017: Day 5
