What is going on? This nikcyt was tasha/nathan?

I thought that a possibility when I answered. but that's ok, I was sort of hoping someone else might find the info useful. But I have to admit, this will get tired real quick. Maybe one of you better detective types can give me a heads up next time. lol

People don't wear their f-bomb mask on the forum and get bounced.

Reminds me of one Counter who streamed live BJ play but he'd swear all the time and he'd get bounced within the hour from entire chains of casinos, but he said he was tossed for counting.

KJ is a very learned player and gives good advice. And the advice he gave the OP was correct...............for his level of play most likely. I mean if he really read Professional BJ and didn't know what all the strategy index tables meant, he needs help. But I have to differ about one thing..............at least once the OP learns enough. Basic strategy variation IS important and DOES add a significant amount to your EV. Now it's nowhere near as big as betting variations but it is significant none the less.

Take a look at this when you get comfortable with what that means OP.

Not that anyone should be dropping f bombs respectfully but the OP did start it. Look at his post on the first page when he told GMan to F off. I'm not defending either but you should be fair/impartial/consistent in punishments/suspensions, should you not? LOL

The OP had already been suspended for 3 days for his F-Bomb to GMan. Indeed he was suspended 5 hours before GMan's retaliation.

Seems fair to me. Same offence: Same penalty.

Thanks. I replied prematurely without reviewing another thread as I only saw your post here against Gman. I stand corrected. =)

Hi and welcome,

I haven't looked at all the potential "cover plays", but if I was counting cards I would alter basic strategy by:


1. always standing on all hard 16s

. Overall, it doesn't cost you "too much EV" when the count is neutral (or negative), and you are betting "your minimum" bet.
. When the count is positive / "when you are betting bigger", standing is the correct play to make.

2. split your 2s vs an 8

. If you get this hand at the start of a fresh shoe (eg neutral count) then it costs you about 1.68%, but overall it only costs you about 1/134,000, when you take into account the chance of getting that particular hand, [1.68% (cost) x 0.04441...% (chance)]
. I think that if the true count is about +2 then it becomes the "correct play for an 8-deck game"

---
General: Changing your play style in conjunction with upping your bets, is probably a sure-fire way of getting your play "flagged by the casino"

General: Look for other basic strategy "error plays" that make you look a bit "stupid". Focus on plays that only cost you "a little bit in overall ev" (consider altering your basic strategy for some of the plays in the link below, focus on plays with a count of " 0 or higher" or "+1 or higher")
