WAY TOO EASY.
But then again I work as a pit boss in a casino here in atlantic city. Before that one of the games I dealt was BJ so I had an unfair advantage on this one.

That was hard But then again, I'm a card game illiterate, so don't listen to me.

I don't buy this one. If the subject was, indeed, a long-time gambler, he would have gone double-down with a pair of aces.

I feel really dumb I didn't know that a third card could change the value of the other cards. I liked it though

EXTREMELY EASY. I play blackjack. Still fun. By the way a good player would NEVER doubledown on aces. That player would SPLIT them. Always split aces and eights.

For those who didn't understand the value thing...an ace is 1 OR 11. Two aces would equal 2 OR 12. Then the next card could be a 10,J,Q,or K as stated...and then one would decided to make the aces 1 each so they would not go over 21. THUS....adding a 10 would make it 12 still.

I don't even play poker....but I knew the answer quickly.

I still found it enjoyable and have to know that not everyone would find this EASY.

Norcekri, don't you mean that he'd have split them, rather than doubling down?

I would have split them...but I rarely even brake even. Good One.
