ive also seen 10k on mini baccarat in a half hour same place



Then you need to stay out of that place.
That is still not at the rate the OP loses at.

I'll try and find it when I have more time. I assume I'll know it when I see it.
But it's going to take a lot to convince me that someone consistently loses $500 within 30 minutes playing 10-15 a hand using basic strategy.

Thank you. Yes, I have kept track, reviewed play when I've gotten home. The only deviation is on doubling. I don't do it as often as suggested, because I'm losing so much, so fast.


Hi, and welcome to WoV

If you can answer the questions below, then the people on this forum may be able to help you more completely:

1. The specific rules for the game you are playing?
2. What basic strategy deviations you are making?

There are two examples below.

Note: for those examples, I used the following rules/parameters: 6-decks, BJ pay 3/2, dealer stands on 17, double after split, double any two card total, split once (to make two hands), and can not hit split aces

Eg 1 When doubling is the best play to make, you could be, "doubling only when the dealer is showing a 2-6"
If you are doing this, then you are costing yourself about 0.3% (this will make the house edge about 0.77%, instead of 0.46%).

Eg 2 When doubling is the best play to make, you could be, "doubling only when you get a hard 10 or 11"
If you are doing this, then you are costing yourself about 0.2% (this will make the house edge about 0.65%, instead of 0.46%).

Note: in the above examples, it is assumed that you are playing correct basic strategy for all other rounds of play.

----
Lastly, I understand what it feels like to have bad sessions (especially when it comes to doubling). Below is one of the bad sessions that happened to me, when I first started playing:

It involved a starting hand of 11, thirteen times in that one particular session.
I played correct basic strategy the first twelve times that I received that hand, and pulled an Ace every one of those times (so I was forced to stand on a 12, since I had doubled).
So, when the thirteenth 11 point starting hand came up for me, I decided to just hit and of course I pulled a picture card that time.

I found the D Day in Vegas thread if that's what you are talking about.
Bad luck, ya, but it doesn't really compare to what we are talking about here.

Not a member here anymore (thankfully) and would be a waste of his time reading those rants so should not bother.

I mean, threatened to shoot up some casinos at one low point of failure but is/was apparently welcome back here anytime... but I digress...

I watch a lot of YouTube Blackjack videos. I pretend Iím actually playing. Hit, stand, double down, split, etc. I watch everything. Itís like Iím in Blackjack school. If I have a question or a comment, theyíre respectful.

The most Iíve ever won at a blackjack table with $650 last year in Atlantic City. That was crazy luck! I was with a buddy mine that had been playing for a long time and I was just watching him. Then I joined the table. He kept busting my ass, LOL!

But, Iíve had bad streaks as well. At the most, Iíve bet $300. The least, $100.

In my hometown casino, they have table games ranging from $10 up to $25. Iím at the $10 tables. $15 tops.

I just found out recently about Progressive Blackjack and won $125!

Last month, there was a guy sitting right next to me that hit for the queen of hearts. $3000. He wouldíve won $20,000 but the dealer had an Ace and a 8. Close!

So, Iím still learning myself.
