Yes, I did this for quite a while a few months ago, switching between 6 deck and single deck. It was very nice, unfortunately my buddy lost a lot and wanted to leave. I just flat bet 3x$100 and won a lot.

My OP wasn't regarding that, I was just interested in 6:5 opinions.

Dis agree. Jsut bet big or small... or however the AutoMonk does it. zg

betting big or small increases your variance, although it does increase your winrate. The choice is personal whether to use a proper ramp or using max bet at all +TC counts. or +4 in this case.

There is little choice in effective 6:5 counting - no room for ramp.
AutoMonk - what spread do yo recommend? zg

I think we're mixing up terms here. I agree you have to spread like a maniac. Like, if it gets positive go to ten units. But that doesn't mean that when it gets more positive we can't go to 30 units.

1-20 without a Wongout, maybe 1-10 if you can escape most negative counts.

As always, it's all about the pen.

What do you think about a ro6, 6:5 game. Worth playing with that spread?

You will best play 2hands heads up.
I'm going revise my "no spread" statement.

(rough estimate)

2x1
2x8
2x12

-or-

1x1
1x12
1x20

Yes. If it's true RO6 (no cut card), try to get exactly 2 hands in the game at all times.

Does anyone want to post some SCORE numbers, or are we trying to keep this a secret? If so, I'll shut up and we can kill the thread.
