Welcome to the SoSG Casino! Grab a drink and come on in! And tonight we have a special event - the SoSG Casino has been chosen as the site of Round 3 of the 1st Annual International Flo vs Deltalina Championships.
The eight contestants are Jason, TD, Keven C, Dusty Baker, Wicks, djansson, rbnlaw, and Scott. And Round 3 is basically a game of blackjack. Only it's "18 Blackjack," not 21. Here's how it works:
- Today, in this thread, between 10am and 1pm PT is when the game is played.
- All are welcome to comment as they please, but only comments with all of the following characteristics count:
- It is made by one of the eight contestants
- It is made in this thread between the hours of 10am and 1pm PT (inclusive), and
- The first word in the comment is "HIT" (please use all caps).
- After 1pm, the last digit of each contestant's such comments are added up, and just like blackjack, the contestants are trying to get as close to 18 as you can without busting.
- A last digit of 0 is a 10.
- Sometime before 1pm (it may even be before 10am), your dealer (pictured above) will HIT once, so you can see her first card.
- There is no double-ing down, insurance, splitting, or anything like that
- At 1:01pm, all play is off.
- Sometime after 1pm, the dealer will continue to play her hand, HIT-ting or not. When she comments "STAY" (or when she busts) then she is done.
- Some players will beat the dealer, some will lose. The object is to get the field of 8 down to 4.
- Dealer must hit on 14
- If more than 4 lose, then the remaining players that won move on and those that lost play another hand next week to see who among them moves on.
- If more than 4 win, then those winning players play another hand next week to see who among them moves on (and the losing players are eliminated).
- Tie-ing the dealer counts higher than losing but not as high as winning.
- FYI, being a #1 or #2 seed doesn't matter.
Got it? Good, because I'm not sure I do (most of this was devised and written between the time I got to work (9am ET) and now (9:23am), and I gotta run to a meeting. In fact I have back-to-back-to-back meetings almost all day, so I'm leaving you in Deltalina's hands. I'll try to check in when I can. In anycase, wait 'til 10am and HIT away!
