Okay I have a couple of questions. Were the first houseguests in sequester until the vote-in was done? I know that parker and Amanda have already done interviews. And when did Chelsia win the vegas trip? The last I seen was Ryan had to give up the movie tickets to the losers. I know I must have missed something.. Any ideas????

Yes, the evicted HG's were sequestered until the vote-in was done, all in separate houses (couples were kept together. Those were just parker/jen and amanda/alex though).

I don't know precisely when Chelsia won the Vegas trip, but I'm pretty sure it's just before/during/after the "21" screening, which should be on the next episode.

I am not a big 21 player but wouldn't Ryan have had a better chance of winning by splitting the 9's.

So Ryan was dealt two 9's and the house (Adam) showed a 3 - isn't it basic to split the 9's and in Ryan's case would have doubled his chances of winning the winning the prize. Given that the whole Movie is about card counting and beating the odds this should have been the logical move.

Yana, can you add that to a list of questions for Ryan if this was considered/allowed.

For the card counters out there - play out the scenario...

are you talkin about doubling down on those nines? I thought in the real world that is exactly what a person would have done was dbl down, but in the game they were playin all the had to do was pick the cards that added up to 21 and remember the faces on those cards, it wasn't a real game of blackjack. In real life to dbl down on those nines could have brought more money,you could bust on one and still win on one, and by the way, I am not a good player of black jack, at least not when I go to the casinos,lol, at home is a whole different story

To split them is to play them as 2 seperate hands. To double down on them would have only given you 1 hit. On 2 nines, I would say no to double down, you already have 18. I would have split them, if they were allowed to do that, or stayed if they weren't allowed to split. Not a BIG gambler, but blackjack is what I play when I go to the casinos.

I have always had the worst luck on BJack at the casinos, not that I do not know the game, but I never have luck with the cards I end up gettin, anyway the dealer usually comes out most of the time, I knew you could split the nines, but also thought it had something to do with the dbl thing, it as been a loooonnnggg time for me play bjack. I usually take a set amt of money to play the slots and when it is gone, I am done, sometimes I have one a few bucks, it is fun.

I agree allstar, I was yelling at the TV "STAY, STAY, STAY, DANG IT!" LOL. So, I think many of us would have done the same. 18 is a good hand in Blackjack.

And as far as I know, as previously stated, I think Ryan had only 1 hand to win with, so he couldn't have split the nines.

I wonder if it was a rule because splitting the 9's would have been the right way to play that hand - given the house had a 3.

Because of the number of 10's, faces cards and aces He would have twice the chance to get (at least 18 or better) AND the house had a better chance of busting (and might have busted had the cards been split).

It would have given Ryan 2 chances to win, would have been the way that a gambler would have played it and would have supported the movie tie in better by playing by the numbers. (Just my opinion).

He could only get one hand. Do you REALLY think they're going to let him split and have twice the chance to win?

In a real casino if he split and won only one hand, he'd break about even, so that's not really winning.

You split when you're almost positive you can win the hand AND you don't have a high count. For instance, if you ever split 10s (or face cards) you'd get laughed out of the casino.

Two 9s is iffy to split with a 3 showing for one simple reason. 3 gives the dealer a ton of outs. Now if it were a 5 or 6 showing, that's different, but 3 is right on that borderline of giving the dealer a lot of outs.

Now, he was correct to hold on the 3, but splitting the 2 9s with a 3 showing, oddswise, will break you even more often than not.

The best split in the casino, obviously, is splitting aces. You always split aces.

Splitting things like 5s and 6s is VERY risky in a 6 deck shoe. I've done it before, just for the hell of it, and too often pulled two face cards, busting on both after a hit.
