I am very new to this forum and gambling. Our union had a outing to the casino and I discovered BlackJack while there. It was a Thursday afternoon and things were pretty slow. I sat at a table who had, what I assumed was a local lady who often played and a great dealer. Both of them helped me a lot and I ended up winning more than I had initially put down to bet with. It was a great first experience and the game really intreagued me.
I went home and went to this website, which the lady I was playing with recomended, read a lot, played the stratigy engine and ended up purchasing Casiono Verite and 2 books with most of my winnings.
Since then I have been to the casino with my boyfriend. I was only playing with $120 at first. I am wining 50% of the time. Even after making some very bad rookie mistakes, being up over twice what I putr down only to loose it ALL before I quit because I lost what I was prepaired to loose that night.
Two other times I doubled my $ ad had enough sense to go home. So far I am ahead $250.
[QUOTE=E-town-guy]liber8 d, Wonging is not cheating either. I count cards and work at a casino and have never seen anyone cheating at BJ.
I do realize the cards sometimes favor the players and sometimes favor the dealers. I have also noticed that some times the table goes though a winning streak and sometimes the dealer does BUT
On my last trip there were some very high rollers at my table and one of them was betting a lot and winning a lot more. That night for me was a struggle to even stay in the game but after a few hours of treading water I started winning big and so was everyone else at the table.
I was almost doubling my money when a new dealer came to the table. She delt very fast abd didn't count the cards, inclufding hers or help anyone very much. She whipped out all of my money in short order and I was so angry with myself because this was the second time I was doubling my money and lost it ALL in short order.
My question is ....
When a $25 table is winning thousands in a short time would the casion send in a samari dealer? Would she cheat when counting her hand and ours so she would win all the time?
I know it was probebly just "the flow of the cards" and I should have gotten out while I was ahead. It just seemed to me she was going so fast few had time to count her cards.
any help you all could give me would be very appreciated.
Thank you all in advance
