Hitme...Yes, thanks for that article. A couple of points caught me off guard.

One, the idea that $5 blackjack tables are prevalent during the week is just not so. Sometimes they are around, but not always, and definitely not at a large number of tables in any case.

Two, I'm not sure what makes the Sands pit boss so sure of himself, but I can guarantee that there will not be $5 tables on summer weekends. He11, I can't find any in the wintertime; why would the casinos suddenly make the game more affordable when they have a captive audience during their busiest time of the year? If this guy is being serious, it's no wonder that the Sands is losing money...

Still, that was interesting to read.
