I already explained it. It was in reference to someome learning basic strategy. The 'always assume a 10' quick way of learning basic strategy should actually be to 'assume a total of 10'. Semantics, but that logic makes much more sense than assuming a 10 value card is underneath when there are 2x the amount of other denomiations in the pack. Has nothing to do with using that logic to mathematically play your hand.

And yes im still the best. Thanks.


Its not semantics,to assume the dealer has a total of 10 is ludicrous,and would have the newbie misplaying nearly every hand.
To assume a10 in the hole would be a much better generic strategy than yours.

I have some Pharaoh's Fortune Slot machine Symbols questions. The Symbols relate to Ancient Egypt, but I am confused by certain Symbols. The blue Dog is Anubis, right?!The Dog sitting on the Throne also looks like Anubis. Who is the symbol that looks like a really magnificent bird spreading its wings? Is this Ra? Is this Isis? I think the Owl is Osisis, right? I'm assuming that The people who look absolutely shocked when you get a line win with them(Really subliminal messaging there, ;) they look shocked because the head covering is removed, leaving them bald as they look at one another's bald head, LMAO)are Pharaohs or just regular Peasants.




According to Google, the Dog is really a Wolf, the "Magnificent looking bird spreading its wings," is a Phoenix, The Owl is really just an Owl, the two people are regular Egyptians, Anubis sitting on the throne is really a man wearing a Wolf Mask(What's up with Wolves in an Egyptian game? Egyptians worshipped Cats primarily, not Wolves. :/

Just tell them to assume they have a 7.3 value hole card.

No, he says that there are twice as many non-ten cards in the deck. Four ranks have a value of ten, nine ranks don't.

He is saying it is twice as likely that the card will not be a ten value than it will. That's true but not where he stops. He says it is better to assume the dealer will have a total of ten. For that to happen, the hole card can only be one of thirteen ranks. Besides which the roughly one third of the time you get a ten value card, his advice makes even less sense.


Here is a question for the math enabled amongst us. Assuming an infinite deck, what are the chances a three card hand will not include a ten value?



When i say a 'total of 10' im not talking about the end total of the dealers hand. Jesus. Theres some really bad reading comprehension on these forums.

When I say assume a total of 10 im talking the next combination of card will however it may be will equal a value of 10. It could be a 2 card combination of 10, 1 card combination of 10, 3 card conbination of 10, etc. Thats where the assumption of 10 comes from. Whoch makes more sense? Assuming the hole card is a single value rank 10, of which there are only 4 of those ranks in the pack or assume a COMBINATION of a 10?
Any private business open to the PUBLIC (ie. droned out casinos) cannot have a criminal trespass enforced against an individual without GOOD CAUSE (Disruptive or Disorderly conduct). You will never go to prison for being thrown out of a casino for legal advantage play and then returning because it's simply unconstitutional 'as applied' to the individual. 'As applied' constitutional issues must FIRST be raised in DISTRICT COURT (trial court) to have it thrown out. You CANNOT raise it on APPEAL This is the best kept secret in the world of casinos not just in Vegas but everywhere in the country. Thank me later.

And once again, according to Google, there IS an Osiris, I just don't know which one he is because pictures of Osiris look nothing like an Owl. The eye symbol is Horus.

Paycheck still hasn't come through yet as of 8:07 AM. The website where I check my paycheck information is also coincidentally down. Now officially worried. Oh crap. :/
