I'm having trouble with "equally distributed" vs. "randomly distributed" and I think my contention is that equally distributed cannot be randomly distributed.

Consider a random distribution of the first twenty natural numbers. If I were to notice that some of the even numbers were clustered (which they would be) and I rearranged them to reduce slugs of even numbers; would you still consider it a random distribution? I think not because each number no longer has the equal probability of being in each position.

The shuffle machine should shuffle the discards to some state of randomness. It shouldn't rearrange the cards.

What do you think?

Evenly distributed results. Ahhh the dream of the D'Alembert progressionist. One could own the casino shortly. If not BJ then definitely Baccarat!

I still can not figure out how the shufflers know how many people are playing, if the idiot at 3rd base will or will not take the dealers break card. And yet posters here somehow believe the dealers benefits ? Worse yet, seems the posters have time to recount how they were cheaters, how often they and the whole table lost, chances of getting a two card twenty are dismal, etc.
And yet not a one of them ever has time to actually record their hands.
I mean if you are not keeping count, how will you know if you lost 31 hands in a row ?



You'd be very surprised what they know. They know how many people are there and how much each person has bet just by you putting your chip in the betting circle on the table. There are sensors that not only know what positions have a player, but also how much they bet. They track your action as you play. They know exactly how much you have lost and won simply by you putting your chips in that circle.

I haven't figured out how yet, but there is a casino here in my town that I'm darn near 100% positive is cheating, somehow. There have been some very head scratching things happen while I've played BJ there that the odds of it happening are astronomical that I can't ignore. I'm ok with losing as I figure I'm going to pay to have a good time playing some cards. I've played Reno, Tahoe, Vegas, Atlantic City, and Indian Casinos all over the country. But this place is ludicrous and something is wrong. My next step is to just go and watch some of the tables and see if I can figure it out. I'm not putting anymore money on their tables though.

Separate a deck of cards into high, low and neutral. Then begin to rearrange the deck in the sequence high, low, neutral, high, low,... . As the cards are dealt the count will be 1, -1, 0, 1, -1, 0, ... . And that will be true regardless of cut or player skill.


I'd kill for a game that presented cards in such a uniform way. My winnings would more than cover the fees of my defence lawyer.
