Casino Tolerance?



Deception for starters by maintaining a very good act on numerous fronts.

Moses, I sometimes comment about some of the older players, who played in the 80's and 9i0's and about how they frequently talk about how lousy conditions are today. And that is understandable, they experienced better conditions for most of their time, so when they go out and play today, they think the games are crap.

But there is a whole group of players my age, or a little older that started playing about the same time, early 2000's. And these conditions are all we have ever known. I learned to play the game in Atlantic City in the early 2000's, even WORSE conditions than I play today. So those of us that these conditions are all we have ever known, learned to play and beat these conditions. And a good part of that is learning to deal with the variance involved.

Now YOU and your experience of playing the last remaining single deck games remaining are almost identical to these players from the 80's and 90's. Now that your single deck games are drying up or diminishing, which was inevitable, you are looking 6 and 8 deck shoe games, and having the same response as the guys from the 80's and 90's.

NO< it is NOT what you are used to. That is life. If you want to learn to play and win against these games, you have to make some adjustments and one of those big adjustments will be dealing with variance that is far different than you are used to.

You can adjust or you can sit around complaining and missing the gold old days, but just stop with the snide little remarks attempting to discredit me, because I play a game and win playing a game, you don't understand and are not used to.

Bottom line is you'd rather complain about Variance than attempt to do anything about it.
Stop.

Rule 12 violation.

Squabbling.

What has been simply offered as a suggestion for improvement to ones game from the hard work of others and tools offered?

I don't know what rule 12 is, nor do I care to look.

But I think we are having a reasonable discussion about blackjack card counting.

If "squabbling" is the term, couldn't that be said of almost any thread on this forum? lol.

That's my point. You refuse to do research. You read one line in a blackjack book and deem your the Holy Grail of blackjack.

Rule 12 means OnceDear is whizzed off.😎

I also only used Hi/Lo when I was playing
my feeling was that counting can be tiring
I was able to put in about 14 hours in a day - I only played one day a week
but I played every single week

my feeling was that if I tried a complex count I would get more tired
and wouldn't be able to play nearly as long
