Met the world's leading authority on BJ last night, on a $3 table at Jokers Wild..
I know this because he told me so, repeatedly. I'd like to think he suffered from a form of Asperger, but more likely he was just a dick
He joined a mostly full table with a $35 buy in and proceeded to tell everyone how to play their hand. No idea where he got his stats, but say someone had a 9vs7, he say something like if you hit you win 57% of the time but if you double, it goes down to 52%.
He would throw out stats on almost every hand, try to correct people if they weren't playing BS, and even tried to buy a woman's blackjack when she was going to take even money on it. Offered her $3.15 for it. He chased away most of the players in about fifteen minutes. When it got down to the two of us, he told me that we now would be getting 117 hands an hour, instead of the 56 per rate we were on. After a few hands, he asked me if I knew any teams he could hook up with. Then he told me that he could beat any casino game because he exploits mathematical paradoxes that computers can't simulate. He'd turned his $35 into $49 and said it was very important to know when to quit. A few hands later, he got his third BJ of the night and cashed out. Told me he enjoyed playing with me and hoped I'd learned something. Tipped the dealer a dollar and vanished into the night.

Why is it that these "experts" are always on the lowest limit tables?

At Jokers Wild, it's also the highest limit table during the week. Guy never spread his bets, except once he went to $5 and caught a nineteen vs Dealer seven. He looked like he wanted to self high five.

50% of statistics are made up on the spot 90% of the time.

I think a few of us might actually know who this guy is.

I'm pretty sure I've played with him a few years ago. He was also asking the pit boss stuff like, "Who's the best BJ player in the world, me, right?" and the boss was like, "[to table] Yeah, this guy is the best blackjack player in the world."

Like WTF????

This is also true on poker.

I ran into a semi-regular recently. This guy who will tell you how rich he is within 5 minutes of meeting you. Which could be true, I guess.

He also just spouts out these %s. e.g. when he loses a hand, "well you hand a 17% chance of winning that and you got it, so great job buddy."

Or when he folds, "well, I'm 37% here and I'm not a donkey so I'm going to fold."

As near as I can tell, he just pulls the numbers from thin air. Sometimes, when he gives a % and says that is why he is folding, it would be correct to call, assuming the percentage was accurate.

I wonder if he thinks he is accurate, or if he thinks other people believe him, etc.

Sounds like the new meta.
