I believe that the Wizard has stated that playing against the Dealer one on one (by yourself) is plus EV, My experience seems to confirm this as true . Curious as to everyone痴 thoughts.

I don't count cards at the table so I would not know if it was +EV.
I would hope I'd win 40 hands ahead sooner than losing 40 hands behind.

I'd be surprised if he said that, and would have to see the context. Playing one on one makes the game faster, with many more hands per hour. It doesn't change the house edge and it eliminates any possibility of scavenger plays.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Agree, Needs context. Might give more scope to exploit dealer errors.
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

There was a guy in AC who exploited the shuffle with his cuts, playing one on one but those are exceptions to the rule.

I believe playing blackjack one-on-one (solo) has a smaller variance per hand, than playing with another player. However, I haven稚 found a mathematical proof for this problem. Can anybody step in on this problem?

Just a wild ass guess here, but I believe it involves playing multiple hands as well.

If you池e playing by yourself, and playing three hands, then 75% of all black jacks will be in one of your hands. I think that痴 where part of the +EV comes from.

You just brought up a new concept. Is it possible to beat the blackjack game just by varying the number of hands while flat betting all the way? Interesting!

I overheard a guy saying he won't play one on one because the dealer gets 50% of the BJs whereas with four players, he gets 20%.
While accurate, I think it is meaningless.

This is definitely meaningless. I agree.
