I'm thinking $25 min bet .1-16 spread...? $25- $400 max bet.
Perhaps this is a good excuse to use: become some petulant smoke-hater who argues about smoking rather than betting near the end of a shoe. And just happens to have the smoke most bother him at negative shoes.Quote: Lemieux66
Make sure you have a tolerance for cigarette smoke. Even in the non-smoking areas the air quality isn't nearly as good as in the poker room. Oh and you WILL be playing by smokers if the penetration is good so be ready for that.
Hello card counters,
I would like to ask some advice from experienced counters. I am new to counting - have been practicing at home. Over the last 13 years I have played blackjack recreationally and never had a clue that there could have been counters sitting next to me. I have always just played blackjack to blow off some steam after running bad at poker (which I play for a living currently) using basic strategy.
So here is the deal - with a $40,000 bankroll. I would like to get advice on a solid bet spread and table minimum with a risk of ruin under 5% - ideally 1-2% I would be comfortable with. I was thinking maybe making my minimum betting unit $25 with eighter a 1-8 spread or 1-10 spread, maybe even a 1-12 spread. This would be on an 8 deck game. Also for a DD game - there is a $50 minimum bet - I was thinking using eighter a 1-6 or 1-8 spread with this.
What do you all think?
Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
When you are counting for real, your maximum bet should be no more than double the table minimum.
