What happened with your online BJ play in the end, OD?

Nothing. I continue to do it for fun. It's so close to a break even game that I just watch my balance ebb and flow as I play a small session most days. I often post about it in my blog.
It's something to keep me amused while taking 'advantage' of other casinos' careless marketing departments.
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

BTW. Some here may q me over some of my idiotic replies. They were in deliberate retaliation



HAHA! That's what people who make those kind of replies always say, that they were deliberate. We all know what they were, and no way of you trying to squirm your way out of it will change our minds.

But in that context, my question relates to someone playing in short term bursts, say a few hours/day for at least 3 months?



You really do not get it. Play in short-term bursts, play 24/7, play standing on your head. None of it makes any difference in a long-term game. What you are trying to do is trick the math, sneak in the back door and sneak out again. There is no back door, there are no tricks, if you do not know in advance what the next outcome is you're at the mercy of the long-term game. Look at card counting. The only reason you can win at that is because sometimes you know what the next outcome will be. At that point all the rules of probability go out the window, at that point you own the game.

It's been posited here that Wellbush must either be an idiot or that he's intentionally trolling. Here he admits to intentionally trolling (i.e., saying something he doesn't really believe, with the intention to provoke). Some might question whether he was actually trolling, or is just *claiming* to have been trolling in order to not appear to be an idiot. There is no forum rule against being an idiot, but there's certainly a forum rule against trolling, something that Wellbush just openly claimed to have done. (There's also a forum rule against bullying, which Wellbush has broken repeatedly and in earnest.)

I get it EvenBob. I donít think you get me. Good luck, plus youíre now blocked for what I see is your biased views about me, and itís not because I am unwilling to see your views, or any other views you think I donít get

I don't have biased views against you, I think you're a newbie pretending to be somebody who's experienced. It's not working.

Wellbush is in red again, what did you do this time.

Has Wellbush been nuked? Wouldn't that be a shame.

To be decided. It wasn't by me, by the way.
The rate he was blocking people, we were on course for a two man forum. I nearly wrote two star forum for some reason.
