This morning I took the time to view the two Wizard youtube videos on using excel to figure the strategy and ev for a S17 DAS LS split once game. I followed along, creating all of the same spreadsheets. I found this to be extremely rewarding and educational, and would like to thank the Wizard for taking the time to do this! While I know I am miles away from being able to figure out sidebets on my own or build the perfect play blackjack computer, this was a giant step for me!

I would like to continue learning how to use excel to calculate games and will be searching this forum for other educational opportunities, but if anyone has some suggestions for resources, I would be grateful (and always willing to trade info).

Hope you all have a profitable weekend,

JImmy Walker

Well, seems I should get started learning one of the C based programming languages. A friend suggested C#.

You're welcome.

I wonder if it would be helpful to make some videos on how to analyze some casino games in C. Just to warn you, blackjack is a tough game to analyze with a finite number of decks. The re-splitting and dealer peeking for blackjack make it especially complicated. If you do the European no-peek rule and limit splitting to two hands, it wouldn't be too complicated.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I'd personally, professionally, and mathematically love to see a programming analysis of pretty much any carnival game... it would save me a lot of time to review and modify =P, but I'd love to see the thought process of others as I tend to over-complicate things.

Does anyone have any kind of open source code of ANY casino games?

I think I have one somewhere. PM me if I don’t post it in 10 days.

I have code for hundreds of them.

Just started my EDX weblearning for C#, so I'm a complete rookie, but yes I would definitely love to see a video like that Wizard!

Request noted. Perhaps I'll start with Three Card Poker, if nobody has a better idea. I'll probably break it into two, the first just doing the Pairplus and the second the base game.

Noted and will do!

Wasn't sure if you were willing to 'open source' your code for the games or not. I'd love any and all of the different games you've coded. Are you referring to excel, or C/C#/C++/etc? I'd be mostly looking for your more traditional programming languages (any of the C's, .NET framework, java, etc).

Thanks to both of you guys for responding.
