Hitting on a 16 against a dealer 7-A is always the right move. The math doesn't change.

That said, people who get angry at others for not playing correct strategy are dumbasses. Play the way you want, it doesn't affect anybody but you.

That's not really true, it can affect everyone at the table, if you make the dealer bust it's not just you that's wins

Huh? How can someone else make the dealer bust so that I win?

Pedo-filter: I am talking about blackjack.

 

I rarely hit on 16s, if I do it is a gut feeling because a lot of high value cards have come out. Mostly though I would rather keep myself in the game until the dealer at least flips their cards. 

I find it laughable when people get so upset at others for not playing basic strategy. Basic strategy with a dealer showing a 6 and nobody hits, we assume the dealer will bust. Yet when you get 16 you’re supposed to hit hoping for a 5 or less? GTFO

It is absolutely true. Making the "wrong" move has an equal probability of helping the rest of the table as hurting. It is a stupid thing to get upset about.

So much this.  It amazes me to see people think it only can "hurt" the table. Go play roulette.

^ plus most casinos are using six decks. The affect your incorrect play has on the whole table is so insignificant.

that it has no impact on another players probability of winning or losing a hand isn't the same as it not affecting them. your statement is absolutely false.

what you wrote "so much this" to was 100% factually and unarguably untrue.

PV you're being a bit pedantic. Yes, someone playing dumb can "affect" you in the strictest sense of the word. But it doesn't change the odds of victory for anyone else at the table, and thus it is a stupid thing to get upset about.

no it can affect you in every sense of the word every time it happens, and it affects future hands as well.

i agree it is stupid to get upset about, but also not hard to understand how someone with a big bet decides to let it stupidly upset them when some drunk plays like an idiot and the affect is they lose a hand they otherwise would have won. sadly though all the times someone only won because of bad play are quickly forgotten. confirmation bias i assume. Looking down and seeing a few thousand dollars taken away instead of having them added is a big affect.

the affect is immediate and visible and can be the difference between bottle service and partying all night or going back to your room early. if it actually had no affect nobody would get upset about it. nobody gets upset when you play your video poker hand wrong, because that doesnt affect them. nobody gets upset when someone makes the dumbest of bets at roulette, because it doesn't affect them. how others play blackjack does affect your outcome, it changes the outcome.

pedantic would be to point out that for card counters how others play can affect their probability of having a winning night at the table.

Dealers showing a 10.

3rd base has 16, takes a hit and gets a 5 to make 21.

Dealer turns over a 6 to make 16, takes a card and gets any card 6 or higher and busts.

Had 3rd base not taken a hit then the dealer would have made 21, instead the dealer busted.

---------------

Saying "make the dealer bust" is a poor choice of words by the poster you quoted, but the point is valid.

I mean the point is the same. Only emotional infants who don't understand the game get upset at how other people play. It would be equally valid to be HAPPY when people play stupid, but nobody ever, ever does that, because people only look for external sources of blame when bad things happen.

I almost got into a serious altercation with a group for splitting tens. I ended up taking the dealers bust card. These guys genuinely wanted to murder me. Learned my lesson on that one. That's a scenerio for tomato can. You absolutely can fuck it up for the entire table if you're only playing for yourself.
