I have read this several times, but with no explanation. Why does a CSM (or a machine that reshuffles every hand for that matter) have a slightly lower house advantage than going through a full shoe? Why does each hand deeper in a shoe have a higher HA?

Thanks, I knew that was there as I had seen it before. I could not find it though.

My quick answer as to why a cut card is bad is that if it is followed by a clump of high cards not many of them will be dealt in the last hand. However, if it is followed by small cards then more of them will be dealt in the last hand. For this reason, the last hand in a shoe tends slightly to go to the dealer, because more small cards are seen, and small cards favor the dealer.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
