I'll just jump in to try to put a little perspective on this. Just from a BS point of view ignoring any effects of card-counting for the moment.
And, no idea if I remember right but I seem to remember his average bet may have been $25 or $30.
So, even for a BS player flat-betting $25/hand losing 80 units in 4711 hands is nothing, well within 1 stan deviation and to be completely expected. Even if only 3000 hands, still only about 1 SD, on the wrong side of course but to be completely expected in the sense calling it "bad luck", while it may have felt like that, just isn't justified.
But losing 400 units, betting $5 in the same number of hands, would gain my sympathy.
As to wvplayer saying "Alas, I didn't have enough money to conduct further testing", if you really believe this is going on, which I think would effect even a BS player, just log the results of a few thousand hands of an accurate BS player while standing behind the table. Just an idea - in case you really, really cared.
And, of course, this all basically just a big guess as to how I have understood things so far, as only he can say how many hands he thinks he played, how he played them, and what his avg bet may have been.
