As it turns out, the tourney was not full and they were actively seeking rebuys. Now there's no excuse for their lack of interest in non-PAC players. I made it to the second round (semi-finals) on my rebuy and came within one card of the final table. A bit of a bad beat in my opinion. First of all my 4+ max bet lead with 6 hands to go evaporated despite the fact that I matched the bets of my opponents and actually made money leading up to the final hand. Here's what happened on the final hand ($500 max, $25 min). In order of betting it was Me: $6250.00; bet $500 BR2: $5687.50; bet $500 BR3: $4900.00; bet $500 Guess who won? I bet $500 to cover a double by BR2 knowing that it exposed me to a double down by BR3, but I thought it more important to cover BR2. Betting the minimum $440 required to cover BR2 would still have exposed me to BR3. Cards came as follows: Me: $6250.00; bet $500; hard 15 BR2: $5687.50; bet $500; hard 14 BR3: $4900.00; bet $500; hard 17 Dealer: 10 showing I stood in order to try and get the same result as BR2 and BR3 (correct according to Wong), knowing that both had to double down. BR2 busted and I though I was home free until BR3 doubled down and got a 4 for a total of 21. I now needed a dealer 21 or bust, but the dealer had 20. BR3 wins, I lose and BR3 advances. Wish I could have surrendered!!! I didn't run into anyone from here. Blackjack Master, how did you do?
