Quercus marilandica blackjack oak is a small oak , one of the red oak group Quercus sect. There are reports of a few isolated populations in southern Michigan , but these appear to represent introductions. Quercus marilandica is a small deciduous tree growing to 15 meters 49 feet tall, with bark cracked into rectangular black plates with narrow orange fissures. They are dark green and glossy above, pubescent underneath, and often remain attached to the twigs through the winter after turning colors from red to brown in the fall.
The blackjack oak grows in poor, thin, dry, rocky or sandy soils where few other woody plants can thrive, usually on low ground, from sea level up to approximately 2, feet meters in altitude. Some say that it does not have the beautiful form of many oaks, but is nonetheless a valuable tree for growing in problem sites.
It is sometimes an understory tree in pine stands on sandy knolls in the southeastern USA. Along the coastal plain of New Jersey the probability of finding this species is increased in relatively sunny, open areas such as those near coastal salt marshes. It often occurs near scarlet and post oaks as well as pitch pine ; understory companions include winged sumac , bracken , sweetfern , and bayberry , and can be found as far north as parts of Ohio  and New York.
In this area, blackjack and post oak form a semi-savanna area composed of forested strips intermixed with prairie grass glades along the eastern edge of the southern Great Plains. This semi-savanna is known as the Cross Timbers. Blackjack acorns provide food for both whitetail deer and wild turkey.

The wood is very dense and produces a hot flame when burned, which functions as an excellent source of heat for barbecues and wood-burning stoves. However, the wood is not desirable for wood fireplaces because the heat causes popping, thereby increasing the risk of house fires. Traditionally blackjack wood is used as both a fuel and smoke wood for barbecue in Oklahoma.

Traditionally the payout was always marked on the felt but I recall noticing it written on plaques on occasion. I wonder whether they now just display plaques so that the ratio along with the table minimum can be changed at will. Has anyone noticed at all? It not only varies between properties, but also sometimes varies between different sections of the same casino.
If you don't see the payout on the felt, on a little screen, or on a placard, it is best to ask the dealer or pit boss before sitting at that table. For a long time, I think many properties were not printing this on the felt so that they would have the option to switch at any given time. What is most disturbing is the growing number of tables that have 6: I stopped even checking it a couple years ago because it can be unreliable for many different reasons.
