  •  Blackjack's a tough game if you're short stacked (4+ / 0-)

    Craps you can make a bet and watch it float around for several rolls before it's finally resolved. Meanwhile they're bringing you drinks.

    Blackjack: Bam! you're out $10. Bam! you're out another $10. And so on. Plus the actual odds of winning a hand are only around 44%: the extra is made up for by splitting and doubling (not a good thing if you're poor). And that's if you play perfectly, even as an expert player it's easy to make errors in corner cases or emotional judgments that lower your odds.
