    Dealer shows 2, 3,4,5 or 6 and I have 12. Is it mathematicaly smart for me to stay and let dealer bust? I hate doing it, but pressure from the table and etiquette force me to stay. Feels like the wrong decision sometimes. Especially vs 2-4.

    I only play two deck pitch. Sometimes they are hard to find, but I will not play unless I can find a table like that. Sometimes you have to go into the higher limit parts.
    If the dealer shows a 3, 4, 5 or 6, I will stay on a 12. I will hit a 12 vs. a 12. Most expect you to stay if the dealer has a 3-6 up.
    However, I try try to count the cards with only two decks being used, but that will normally only affect the size of your starting bet.
