I'm pretty sure he doesn't gamble, either.


I think, He does, and I like it. You wll have to prove me wrong if you disagree.
This is how Bob's new policy works, and I am starting to really like it. I think, I am going to adopt it.

God doesn't need to count, he already knows what the dealer is holding. He could also manipulate the deck to give himself nothing but Naturals if he wanted to. I'm pretty sure he doesn't gamble, either.

I only want to discuss card counting as relates the secular tertiary, if it's cool with everyone.



This reminds me of a Simpsons episode where Homer is whisked off to be a missionary. He had to flee some ruckus in Springfield. Anyhow, if I remember right, he went to an island and taught the natives how to make beer, and opened a casino.

I seem to remember a native saying 'What kind of God would make an ace a one OR an eleven' and then take a big swig of beer. I recall laughing out loud, of course, I am sure one of the boards zealots will post a link or something.....

Edit: The characters name was AK, and the quote was "How can ace be one AND eleven? HUH? What kind of God would allow THAT!" Then he takes a swing at Homer. hehehe

The episode is hilarous...the best part is homer protesting that he doesn't believe in "Jebus"...as he is wisked onto the plane, and then seconds later yelling "save me Jebus" :) Also there are hookers in the casino before it even opens somehow.

You're endorsing my policy, whats next, claiming it as
your own idea? I could show you where in this thread
I invented it, but I don't do that anymore..

All random walks ARE theory and you know it. They
aren't law, therefore they're theory. Look up Law of
Random Walks or random walk law and you won't
find bupkis. Being theory, random walks are not
subscribed to by everybody, you know this also.



...bwah? Does someone on this board really need it explained that laws are lesser than theories? I mean, really?! Especially in mathematics? This old saw is facepalm-worthy on Youtube.

(And big talk when your last response to my demonstrations exactly how you were wrong was answering a rhetorical question regarding your strange terminology.)

The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

Nope, this is your interest, not mine. You produce one. I'm
perfectly happy with what I said. I reserched it, now so can
you.

I'm not going to produce any because I know that, unlike you claim, they don't effing exist. You did no research whatsoever, or maybe gleaned a few arguments off creationist sites, because they're the only ones who define "law" and "theory" in the way you do.

And you still haven't responded to my contention that the ever-increasing standard deviation that you correctly pointed out means that your chance of falling behind given that you're ahead, or vice versa, asymptotically approaches .5 as the number of future bets considered grows without bound, or that the casino has no bankroll advantage as long as there's fresh blood, or the frequent point that no matter how far you're ahead/behind, there's a small but nonzero chance of losing/winning every single bet until you're even (2^-1000000000000 > 0; indeed, 2^-g64 > 0).
