Occasionally I've done this one on one with friends or acquaintances, and it is more about not dealing too far into the deck if you're playing against a skilled player who is tracking cards than anything else.
I'm assuming fixed hit/stand rules for the dealer.
In your case - That 5% commission is definitely going to eat up any possible advantage though, even with only a 6:5 payout, if you're playing against players who know what they are doing.
The only way I may see the count mattering is if you just got up and left when the count was very bad, since you have no control over the bet amount.
You tell the corporation how much you want them to play and how many hands you would like them to play.
You're going to need to rethink this one some more. Maybe someone else will come in and waste his time responding, because the game you describe sounds like a waste of time.
I've heard this story before.Quote: MDawg
When I was a kid (funny, too, in that this is your Username), I'd run a little casino in my bedroom with a miniature roulette wheel, a Keno station, also BJ where I was the house and dealer. I'd always beat all the kids for all their money, but it was more about that they didn't know what they were doing than the house advantage.
But what's unique about your story. "but it was more about that they didn't know what they were doing than the house advantage."
"roulette wheel, a Keno station"
Assuming you were running a normal fair game with evenly distributed odds, I would love for you to explain how one can know what they are doing while playing those two games?
I don't think the Kid knows what he is talking about. On each hand you are able to force the players to bet whatever you want, with no player discretion? As the Germans might say, Ich bezweifle das.
Lol I definitely know what I am talking about. I have done it plenty of times. Only requirement is you must have 3x the amount that you require them to wager.
Largest bet I have made them make was $400. I saw a guy lose over 30k playing against the house and then I told him that he had the option to take their action and he made them start playing 3 hands of $1000 each.
