I occasionally will use Oscars Grind. It usually works. Sometimes it doesn't. More often, it does.




And the problem is.....??????

The problem is that when Oscar's Grind fails, your entire bankroll will be wiped out. Or is that not a problem for you?

No ,it's not a problem . Would it make much sense to play a system that eventually will fail and then be shocked or surprised when it happens?
Counting cards, you are going to hit a bad streak that will cost you much of your bankroll. Is that a problem?

Don't gamble with money you cant afford to lose and you'll never have a problem if you lose it all.
With my $100 daily BR, I could survive days, maybe even a week before I might miss a meal or two.

I'm just wondering. In that case, why do you use systems? Why don't you just set the amounts of your bets randomly? It's easier than using a system. It'll fail eventually anyway, and using a system doesn't make your bankroll last longer. It's just luck. As for counting cards, it's not a problem when you lose because of bad luck. It will be a problem if you lose because you count cards. On the other hand, system players lose even with average luck.

LOL Not a math "star" but a math "geek". To answer your question, I need to go to my son. We'll see if he even wants to get into it. He usually tells me "I'm off again"

Thanks Odius
