The topic of promo chips came up in another thread and the timing is good, since I have been looking into some situations which could present an advantage situation depending on what the rules and procedures of play are with respect these chips/coupons. I have read The Wizard's appendix on this topic and he raises some variation in these rules/procedures which got me thinking about additional possibilities. So, what I would like from those of you experienced in the play of promo chips and match play coupons to let me know if you have ever encountered the following conditions: Match Play: The house immediately replaces your coupon with a real chip OR Allowed to double for the full amount using real money Allowed to split using real money Allowed to surrender: The house takes your coupon only The house takes your matching bet only Other variations? Promo Chips: Allowed to double for the full amount using real money Allowed to split using real money Allowed to surrender: The house pays you 1/2 the value of your chip/coupon Other variations? I suspect that some of these (especially the surrender options) are unlikely to be offered, however, all of them, except surrendering and losing your matching bet, would present real money advantage situations and would perhaps result in a modified basic strategy because: Doubling for the full amount with real money is equivalent to allowing double-for-more Splitting with real money is equivalent to splitting for more Surrendering and losing only a match play coupon is equivalent to a push Surrendering and being paid 1/2 the value of a promo chip is equivalent to a 1/2 bet win Anyway, please let me know either privately, or on this thread, if you have seen these or other match play/promo chip variations in actual play. Thanks!
