The New Black Jack

So this article explains why I saw so many blackjack tables that paid 6:5 for blackjack. Normally, the game is set so that a blackjack pays 3:2 (i.e. 6:4). Apparently this slight shift makes the game 10x worse than normal blackjack. Had I known that I wouldn't have been playing. The sucky thing is, this article suggests that only single deck games use this. Wrong, O'Shea's was using this pay scale for a 6-deck game. We were really getting screwed.

Okay, can you tell I have gambling on the brain?
