Quote:drjohnnyCan anybody run a sim of betting the reverse Martingale only when the TC is +2 or better? Start at $25, double it after each win until you hit $500, and return to $25 after a loss. I'm thinking this aggressive system would be good camouflage... 😂

drjohnny,

What house rules? What to bet when TC is below +2? What to bet after winning a $400 wager?

Bet $25 when TC is below +2. Max bet of $500 if $400 wager is won. Return to $25 after a loss.

drjohnny,

I get an IBA of 0.221%, with a Win Rate of $7.19/100 rounds and a SCORE of 1.32.

Hope this helps!

P.S. Thanks again to miplet for his table-maker!

I don't understand the betting scheme... how much did MIT bet per TC? What was their maximum bet?

OK, I dug up my "Beating Blackjack with Andy Bloch" DVD.

Step 1: Determine the TC.

Step 2: Subtract 1 from the TC.

Step 3: Multiply by your unit bet (a unit bet should be no more than 1/1000 of your total bankroll).

Step 4: Bet this amount on each of 2 hands.

If the TC is 1 or less, bet no more than 1/2 of your unit bet on 1 hand.

If the TC is -1 or less, sit out or leave the table.

This only works with female dealers. Non-Asian females, to be specific.

slight conflict there.... If TC is 1 step 3 leads to wager of 0 X 2, but next you play on at 1/2 unit bet.Quote:drjohnnyOK, I dug up my "Beating Blackjack with Andy Bloch" DVD.

I reckon that with 1/1000 br rate, your br would grow painfully slowly , though it would be fairly smooth... Well not that smooth.

Assuming DogHand's calculations are correct (they usually are!) then I think you can probably be done asking questions lol... $7.19/100 hands assumes a pretty decent game speed where you can wong in at TC +2 every time and wong out below with no heat... and if you get the 100 hands per hour, you're going to make less than minimum wage... $7.19/hour. Oh, that also assumes you're counting and playing PERFECTLY, which if you could do that you'd get a much, much, better hourly with counting + spread.Quote:DogHanddrjohnny,

I do like the idea though for looking like a progressive better in positive counts... so 10 points to Gryffindor for that.
