I'll spare you my crap and let, who, legend has it, has been playing undetected since 1892, respond.

Ladies and Gentleman, microphone drops down from ceiling, I introduce to you The Master of AC Multiple Deck, The Quietly Unnoticed One, The Fist in a Velvet Glove, The Invisible, The Unvincible, The Undeniable, The One and Only, The Chameleon Who Merges with the Green Felt, Mr. Cellophane Man, The Shape-Shifter himself ....

OK, he knows who he is. Probably. I can't "out" him lol.

I'd suspect his answer would be "yes" but I don't want to put words in his mouth.

His "yes" is worth 1000 times my "yes".

And then some.

Of course, although counting it would probably be the worst choice for beating it.

"chitown",

Would you be good enough to make an earnest attempt at expanding upon your question ?

I am assuming that you do not want a one-word answer.

Incidentally, the short answer is "YES."

The long answer is, "It depends on numerous factors."

You have come to the right place in order to pursue the answer to your inquiry;
but what makes you think that an eight deck shoe game is perhaps unbeatable ?

You'll find a lot of people saying that it's not worth the time, etc., but of course an 8D game is beatable. While under the same circumstances, 6D is better than 8D, sometimes particularly good conditions of the 8D can make up for it.

Default Beat the 8 deck game

The answer to your question is yes. If you can find a copy of Arnold Synder's beat the eight deck game it is suppose to be a good read on it. Most people will tell you an 8d with good rules is better than a 6d with poor rules or penetration. I play the game with a 1-12 spread and have good results.

Most definately!! Just takes a good deal of discipline and a substantial bankroll to withstand the large swings. As moo stated, wonging needs to be a part of the game plan. The good thing about 8 decks is that if you are playing heads up or with one other player and the count goes positive early, you can get 40 or 50 hands in before the shuffle.
