I actually do know what I am talking about(having been an observer in casinos since I was 13), and I was simply going on evidence presented. Most often the case is that kids learn strategy from addict parents. You just happen to be an exception to the rule. That is the main difference. When most kids learn 21 all they learn is hit and stand, not when to do what. I hope you can understand how I drew this conclusion. My apologies though for the offense.
