Who was she, and what did she do that merits comment?



Sorry I left this hanging, MrV. I thought there would have been more comments.

Katarina Walker authored "The Pro's Guide To Spanish 21 And Australian Pontoon". She really knew her stuff but don't take my word for it.

This from the book: "The author, gaming analyst/programmer Katarina Walker, is recognized as the world authority in Spanish 21 and Australian Pontoon". Foreword written by Don Schlesinger.

Thank you. Two games I don't play and haven't read up on, so I'd never heard of her.

Helping my granddaughter learn to read yesterday.

The sentence was: Pig #1 said to pig #2.

My granddaughter read it aloud as: "Pig hashtag one said to pig hashtag two."

What the internet is doing to our world, huh!

Wow, I didn't see that one coming. I thought you were going to say that your grandaughter questioned talking pigs.

Happy National Cat Day, everyone! Be nice to your kitties today and every day and they might be nice to you. It really depends on what kind of mood they're in.

I wish when members post nothing but a link to a YouTube video that they would put a title or just a couple words to describe the vid. Maybe this should be in the pet peeves thread now that I think about it. Vids can take a bit to load on YouTube and many times I'll wish I didn't watch whatever it is. Could save some time is all I'm saying.

When I don't label links it's not by accident or that I forgot. Most of the time I do though. Just don't click on ones with no labeling.

It wasn't just for you(it was your recent post that prompted this btw though) but in any case I'll try not to.

The book was published in 2008 and explained a mathematically verifiable way to beat Spanish 21 and Australian Pontoon. She used the Hi-Lo method as it was familiar to most Blackjack AP's. Following publication most Australian casinos either removed the game or began dealing it from a CSM. The book also discusses other aspects of casino play and conditions both in Australia and the USA. There was a reference to a second book on advanced play, such as using level 2 and ace side counts, but I have never seen it.

Ms Walker passed away on July 17, 2015 aged 49 years.
