On Tuesday, our marketing department went out for dinner / drinks after work.
After a quick drive and Wawa ATM trip we arrived at Parx. A coworker of mine and I sat down at a $15 min bet blackjack table and got started.
I had two note-worthy hands.
On a $100 bet, I had 99 against a dealer 4. I split. Stayed on hand one, then got another 99, so I split again, quickly going from a $100 hand to a $300 hand. None of the three hands were great, but the dealer busted and I got up a quick $300.
I was up $400 and my coworker said something about the plunger strategy which I’ve mentioned before to him. I plunged. My $400 profit was on the line.
First card 2. Okay.
Dealer card 6. Very good.
Second card 9. LEGGGOOOOOO!!!!
I had $405 left, so I doubled my 11 against a dealer 6 for an $800 hand. I had like four coworkers watching so I needed this to work. Dealer flips my card. KING!
The shoe ended a few hands later. I tipped the dealer $25 and cashed out for a net profit of $1200.
A few months ago I went to Parx alone on a Sunday and won $1000. I don’t do anything with the money I win. I brought in coffee and donuts to work this morning, but other than that, it just goes into my bank account.
The one thing I’m going to buy with this money is a Kitty Castle for Covy. I’m also considering giving a $100 tip somewhere just for the hell of it.
Other than that, I don’t have any good ideas aside from the obvious of “go back to the casino, sit down with $1200, and try to turn it into $10,000”, which is a good idea.
