Beatable in what way? Obviously hole carding can beat it easily

I am not AP, I have no experience, but I read "pro's guide to Spanish 21 " by Katarina Walker , and I think the game is beatable if you are good.

Somewhere the Wizard relates playing a lot of Spanish 21 at one point in his life - IIRC while living in Baltimore.

This certainly suggests he felt it could be beat. I don't believe he went on to explain.
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

I don't want to quote him however I don't think he said it Could be beat but I do remember him distinctly saying in some jurisdictions it's the best blackjack odds that are offered, however it definitely was not Baltimore because at the time they did not have casinos

Yes. It's a complete book for Spanish 21 and Pontoon. Card counting and every thing. Wizard thinks she is the best in that field. You can get the book from Amazon.

thank you. i havnt learned about hole card counting yet. im sure there are many ways to beat this game. what i mean by beatable is anything to give the player and edge and come out on top in the long run.

thank you. it seems that most people only know of that book. i study the wizards strategy and its very similar to walkers book as he has stated. i know her way of card counting. im interested in other strategies people may have created and studied. if read of card counting for match the dealer. someone off this post has mentioned whole card counting for it. i have seen on other posts people mentioning a certain count they heard of but no studies or research to back it up. im alo interested in studies done with sims from software people may have.
