I can see already that posting on this particular forum is a waste of time, I think I will network elsewhere. Good luck guys



That's probably a good choice. If you think $17 an hour for your time is worth working for with no health insurance, no paid time off, no retirement and a dead end future, you should go somewhere where that will be appreciated. Maybe a fast food workers forum? This forum has a good amount of professional AP's and casino management. Many have been here over 10 years. You have to do better than that to teach us something.

Your choice. You asked for feedback. You got it.
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

In order to reliably demonstrate professional-level competence, a professional player of games must surpass some well-defined objective threshold. Among multiple measurement possibilities, two possible benchmarks are time devoted solely to professional play, e.g. two years, or a multiplier of initial overall bankroll, e.g. twelve times. Other game occupations such as chess player or commodities trader may be evaluated similarly. Inspections of results may legitimately include searches for insider trading, Ponzi scheming, falsified records, etc.

If the mob accepts an objective benchmark and if subsequently an avowed advantage player asserts having surpassed it, then we should let him speak his piece and offer his proofs without mob catcalls. Doing otherwise is figuratively moving the goalposts. For example, average dollars gained per unit of time is not a useful metric: poker player Chris Ferguson tested his skills risking pennies online while using a bankroll of $100 before winning his WSOP bracelets. Total career winnings need not be a fanciful figure such as $15 million in order to establish professional legitimacy.

Wrong quote. In your case you end up with 3 million.

I am currently spreading green chips making what I consider a good amount, certainly have not made any millions but have logged about 120 hours this year already and up a good amount. The $17 per hr amount was just an example to show that you can make at least minimum wage playing blackjack even with a small starting bankroll with the opportunity to make much more in the long run, I thought that point would have been obvious. I can see already that posting on this particular forum is a waste of time, I think I will network elsewhere. Good luck guys



Please don't be so thin skinned. No successful counter has less trouble than you would on these forums. Please continue to post and let us know your experiences.

I assure you I am not thin skinned, nothing to do with hurt feelings, just dont see the point in taking time to post on a forum if it will not be met with any intellectual response or at least some quality conversation on the topics. I respect you asking me to continue posting and I will consider doing so, we all know that for most being an AP is a somewhat lonely experience, most people that you know in your every day life either don't understand what you do or take little interest in it. If some members of this forum would like to challenge parts of my post as incorrect, by all means do so. Saving money and slowly building a bankroll playing low stakes is neither stupid or anything to be ashamed of, in fact that is exactly how many players on the pro level started out, including myself. However, making condescending responses in an obvious attempt to make the posting member feel like an idiot not only brings down the quality of the forum and shows immaturity in the community, but it discourages newcomers from posting their thoughts and ideas. And it doesnt matter how long you have been here, being a jackass for 10 years doesn't impress anyone. I understand that the claim of making a million dollars playing Blackjack is a bold statement, hence the part in the beginning when I first described it as extremely difficult, but acting as if it's impossible to do so is simply not true as it has been done. I apologize for the lengthy response, I come here hoping to build relationships with other professionals and I look forward to hearing your experiences as well!
