JimmyB1474,

Wait... something doesn't add up. With a $500 bankroll and $10 flat bets, you'd have to lose 50 bets to go bust. How can you do that in only 30 minutes?

Hmmm. Let's go with, "What's it like to play against a mechanic"? For $500 DH. wink.

Maybe switch tables after you lose 15 bets.

My record was 20 bets in a row at 6D NDAS with basic strategy, ignoring pushes. I admit, I was vaguely tempted to see how much longer the run could go on, but not enough to pay for it.

If there is ever a time you are not doubling because you are 'afraid you are losing so fast' then you absolutely should not be playing at all! The advantages you have are being paid extra for BJ, splitting, and doubling! Playing without always doubling when basic strategy tells you to is a way to INCREASE the house edge.



Player also has the advantage of being able to stand on H12-16, which is worth quite a bit versus dealer 2-6.

In point of fact, you would probably do better playing in a CSM game where the true count, every single round, is as close to zero as it can be. The mathaholics here will be all over that piece of advice, and I would defer to their expertise about it.



Hmmm, I think that is correct advice. With CSM's you also do not get the "cut card" effect

That's what I was thinking. Losing way to fast. I may have lost that fast 2 or 3 times in my 65 years but that's it.

I'm 65 and have played all over the Country. Believe me, I've lost fast plenty of times, but not like this guy.
Just seems way to fast. Remember we're talking 30 minutes here.

I played with a guy who doubled up after every win, and couldn't understand how he was doing so poorly.
