I just read my OP.... yeah.. haha. I have no clue what I was thinking. I am pretty sure that I had 10 thoughts in my head and was trying to combine them to come up with way to crush the casinos.... but I should have taken a nap first!

Joe- I can assure you that when I sit down at a table after driving or flying to the casino, and win my first hand I am not thinking about leaving with that extra $20 in my pocket. I never go to a casino to try and make some small amount, but rather, I go to enjoy the game, the competition, and the time spent in those endeavors. And if I happen to win, then that's a bonus.



If anyone expects to win a red cent palying any hand other than video or live poker, he's dreaming, wishing, hoping, stupiding.......SOOPOO travels the whole dang world playing BJ just for fun. He is a doctor by trade and professional trainer by design.

It would really help readability if you stopped ****ing up the quote tags in your reply. Your replies often look like they are part of the original post, which probably means people aren't reading them. I think you're just accidentally deleting the trailing /q with brackets around it.

FWIW in this case I agree with you, the original post is pointless.




I don't usually change anything, to my knowledge. If people don't read them who gives a ffff - not me and not them.

Don't be too hard on yourself. Nearly all of us have had the exact same idea. Leave the casino and think "why didn't I leave while I was ahead, how could I keep playing like a fool and give it all back, how come I am always ahead at some point and never leave ahead at any point." In BJ it is true that one is usually ahead at some point, playing so close to even. The others are just mind confusion. To combat some of the self incrimination, when playing BJ if I get up several credits, I will set aside my buy in, plus a red chip for the dealer, plus a $5 red to establish a win. Then when I lose all my playable chips, I quit with a small win for the dealer and me and everyone quits happy. Amazing, though, how often that potentially last hand will offer me a double or split or several - have to play the odds so there goes my guaranteed win, and now I have to keep playing to get back to my desired departure position, correct?

Huh, weird...I've noticed it with several of your replies. This one is fine though so maybe it was just an aberration.

Probably my damn new Dell computer changing things I don't even realize. It's going back, though - already have a HP blazer notebook to replace it. I said I would never buy another HP product, but now that I have tech support with Sam's club guys I don't care who makes a product. They can fix it! How's this - product comes with 1 year warranty, I buy 3 year extension for $80, and they give me an extra year because I am a plus member. So, that's 5 full year software and hardware coverage for $20 additional per year. Ffffing Dell wants about $150/year for 3 software isses. Matter of fact I deleted some of the media programs on the computer, and, after buying a bunch of music CD's on sale, I decided I wanted to reinstall them. Dell was perfectly willing to sell me the programs back but said I had already used my 1 time software session warranty so they couldn't help me. Didn't offer to send recovery disk either. So, that kick in the face was insulting enough to find something else. Yes, you heard right - Dell's software warranty includes one session - period. If I still did stock market bullshit, I would short that sucker and ................probably lose my rear end. They would make up some crap about how great business is and the spinners would take it from there.

If a person gave me a fifty billion dollars.. told me to go to casino and win 10$ profit before losing the 50 billion$ bankroll... I would GUARANTEE I could do it.



Really? Careful. Nothing is ever guaranteed. Especially when every game has a house edge. Is it probable that you could play in a casino for a couple of hours with a $50 billion bank roll, and leave with $50 billion and $10?? Yes.

100% Guarantee? No way. You can't take back 100%.

(This is just me playing hardball math).

The math would probably say that with that BR, playing the right type of game, you could easily, with a 99.2% probability, make that $10. But that is not 100%.

Cheers. :)
