You're welcome.

I would make it a point to tune in if you could get Nathan, Kentry, and Luscious Sweet on at the same time. There has to be a lottery prediction though.😀
Truthfully I'd probably tune in if it's just Nathan.



We had varmenti show up yesterday.

I saw a little of the first show, the discussion about what might be a safe spread to avoid detection at the BJ table, as I recall the Wiz's suggestion was 1:4 or maybe it was 1:5. Probably right, when I used to alternate between table min and table max on a 25 to 2500 (the limit at that time) table, I eventually got banned after a multi day heavy winning streak. When that happened to me, it had nothing to do with detecting counting it just had to do with the big spread and that I was winning too consistently. They even told me that they "knew" I wasn't counting but just couldn't figure out how or why I was winning so much. Quite right - count alone could not justify a 100X jump in bet.

However, it depends on the casino, the Hard Rock Vegas, especially during the time Peter Morton owned it, was very aggressive about booting BJ counters. They didn't care how little your spread was, or even if you were losing, I had friends booted simply because the casino detected card counting, any sort of consistent bet increase to the count was frowned on.

Oh so you live in Vegas, well duh yes that makes sense. But then you have a doppelganger at my gym in Southern Cal seriously I was about to go up to him and ask, "Are you the Wizard?"

Today is Thursday, which means it must be Live Stream day! At 2:00 (Vegas time) I'm a guest on the Vegas Aces show where Heather will be interviewing me. I love talking about myself (who doesn't?)! Then at 3:00 I'll be doing my usual show at my channel.

We could use more participants so please join me. The odds your questions or comments are addressed are very high.

Vegas Aces LiveStream -- 2:00 Pacific time
Wizard of Odds LiveStream -- 3:00 Pacific time

After this one, I plan to do them every other week for a while.

How about trying later time of the day? Later times could help participation.

Good point. In my defense, it is 6:00 eastern time. Heather does hers at 2:00 so it's convenient for me to go right after. Still, I'll consider it.
