"Would"? Not necessarily.
"Could"? Yes.

Not if "sufficient" is less than infinite - and even if you had an infinite bankroll, it would require infinite time as well, which does not exist, even if you take breaks.

You are also making a very large assumption - that every player will not stop playing until either there bankroll is exhausted or they are ahead. What about all of the times somebody stops playing while behind but with some of their bankroll remaining?



And maybe your assumption is that the player will experience the kind of catastrophic losing streak that exceeds the normal win/loss variation?

Is it not true that the game of BJ at casinos use shuffled decks? Is it also not true that the house edge is approx. 8% (excluding ties)?

In that case, are you suggesting that a good BJ player will start to experience a losing streak beyond the bounds of normal variation? Is this what you base your assumption on?

Trying to ascertain which is more egregious.

Thinking Blackjack has an 8% edge or that an 8% edge is easily beatable

It is insulting. You seem not to understand that taking insult is a matter of perception from the perspective of the insulted.

I'm sure that you feel insulted by some of my more derisive statements as relates your posts. You've used the word, "Derision," several times. It should come as no surprise to you that my derisive statements as relates your posts I did not find insulting at all.



Yeh, we could all be insulting and insulted! Who's right? You?

"That's why breaks are good!!!!!"
What the hell sort of corollary is that? It makes zero sense and does not follow any kind of logic.

In the real world, the game absolutely does not even out. That's another fallacy you seem to adhere to. Taking the simple coin flip example. As time and number of coin tosses push forwards and upwards, the ratio of heads to tails approaches 50%, but the average difference between number of heads and number of tails actually increases.

You have so many fallacies to expunge, it's almost like we cannot know where to begin.... Or why the hell should we bother, since word soup is your only retort. Get your Bankroll together and hit the tables. Do it online if location is an issue.

Serious questions.... How much lifetime action have you ACTUALLY given to casinos? How many wagers of say >AUD$10 or more?
How often have you progressive wagered and found yourself staking AUD$200? Whatever, why are you short on bankroll right now?



It's ok, OD, relax. I won't bother you with questions. My questions seem to fire you up big time 😆. I mean, seriously, do you think I intend to upset you?

When you bet $10 on one hand of BJ, how much do you expect youíll have after the hand?

Spoiler alert: Donít exclude ties.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
