Unlike yall. My first 3 months of counting was a constant loss. My friends suggested me to quit. They knew another counter that quit with a loss. Some rich guy. i never met. He just broke up with his girl friend. In the next 1 or 2 months, I made my money back. My friends were surprised. They do IT work after leaving IBM. But they never attempted counting or gamble in any form. I would guess that at least half of counters quit.

Isn't counting less and less of a thing these days? Here in Australia we have 6-deck shuffling machines taking the cards after every hand. How can you count in that scenario?
All persons reading my posts gamble at their own risk, as I do. I don't ordinarily dispute math. I may dispute math I don't understand, or if I think it's faulty. I am not a conspiracy theorist.

You opened the door to further comment. The two of you have now commented not once, but twice.



Which would be: that I am the only WOV member to have been witnessed making those large bets and winning. Indeed, the entire table clapped for me after I pulled it off. Then again, given that I claim to do something, and then do it while witnessed, well, that would prove nothing I suppose. Or everything.


Anyway, that's the way I play blackjack, man. Right on topic on the way I do things. You want to knock yourselves out commenting on it further, without making any kind of substantive contribution to this thread, fine.

I'm reading this thread this morning and for some reason I'm reminded of Will Farrells character from The Office.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

But he never can resist.New members, visitors and passers by might even believe it all, join the fan club and try to emulate the great one.



Exactly OnceDear. And I STRONGLY OBJECT to his jumping into this thread with more of his "unbelievable" stories that he would like visitors, passers and most disturbing to me, newer players to believe.

Mdawg's threads were first moved to the losing betting system section for a reason. And then management decided that wasn't enough and further "hide" his threads from public view in an effort to protect those very groups mentioned

So now he is allowed to just jump into a legitimate blackjack thread, a thread started by me and about the actual experiences of my brother, a real blackjack card counting AP, and continue with his fantastical claims of always winning and betting table minimum to table max?

Come on this isn't right. WoV was at one time and is supposed to still be a somewhat serious gambling forum. There has got to be a limit to this guy or he should be limited where he can post his "stories".

I already challenged this one to a blackjack tournament of sorts - we meet at a table, and see who wins more. He declined.

Now he is saying that I do not jump from table min to table max? That is exactly what I do.

See the problem I have with the comments above is - that they are not substantive. They bring nothing to the table, other than wasting time stating "I don't believe the poster."

Instead of, "Oh man he couldn't be doing that" why not just say, hey it's risky to jump to table limit based on just the count. But, I'm doing more than just counting and I said so.

<snip>Now, are you aware that a level 2 count and a level 1 count identify the same true count something like 96% of the time in a shoe game, which is what we mostly play. And the times they don't match up it is one identifying a TC of +3, while the other is TC+4. It is pretty minor. You never have a situation where a level 2 count would identify some advantageous situation, while hi-lo or a level 1 identifies a nuetral situation.<snip>



kewlj,

A little over four years ago I posted (over at Norm's site) a method to compare two different counts side-by-side using Excel: see the last post on this page:

Hope this helps!
