We live in an area where there are a lot of Indian casinos and I have noticed that the skills of the average Blackjack player at these tables are much higher than those at your average (low limit $5/10 min) table in Vegas. Probably 80% of the players at these Indian casino tables have a good understanding of Blackjack strategy, whereas my experience shows that number at closer to 25% at the Vegas tables.
Anyone else notice this? Any theories as to why? My only theory is that the local players are (much like myself) at the tables a lot (well, not a lot, but probably too much) and those in Vegas are just the occasional gambler who go to Vegas once or twice a year and just want to try it out.
