I try to make a distinction between whether my strategy is causing undo losses, or if the luck is just undue. I might have a few different strategies to try, but I would pick one to start and I could change my mind after a shoe to see how another one works.

You are playing a -EV game. It will be a -EV game however you plan to play it. What difference does it make?

You Lose, Lose Lose to fate. Fate owes you nothing for your changing direction or continuing the same course.
Psalm 25:16 Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Proverbs 18:2 A fool finds no satisfaction in trying to understand, for he would rather express his own opinion.

The difference is if your strategies utilize different money management systems. E.g.:

Strategy 1: Bet every hand, increase one unit per loss.

Strategy 2: Only bet once every three or four hands, flat betting.

Some players prefer consistently betting on the Banker hand because it has a slightly lower house edge than the Player hand. However, casinos usually charge a commission on Banker wins.
