Coinbase seems like it behaves like a forex company, it simply converts my USD to Bitcoin and I need an eWallet to accept the BTC. Can Coinbase hack into my eWallet?

Please keep this game as real as possible. Don’t make it easy for these guys who are crying about the dealer always getting 21. I prefer to train on the most difficult conditions preparing me for the tables where the dealer is always pulling 21. Anyone who has gambled for a period of time will tell you it happens more than you think.

Idiots always think they’re smart. It’s the dunning kruger effect. Your method would do just as well in roulette. Which is why anyone with a functional brain can see that it doesn’t work at all. The roulette ball doesn’t remember the previous spins, nor do cards remember your previous wins. Raising your bet or lowering it based on whether you win or lose is bullhonkey. It doesn’t matter which spins you bet what amount of money on, your total expected loss in roulette is 1/19 of the total money bet. And if you’re using the same method for blackjack, you’re no better.

Totally wrong. You would have to play a lot more than 100 thousand hands to have less than a 1/100000 probability of being behind while playing blackjack correctly and counting cards. I calculated the statistical advantage of a 2 deck game where you bet the minimum bet plus 3*the minimum bet for each 1 the truecount is past 2, if it is past 2, and the minimum bet if the truecount is 2 or less, which is the best way of doing it btw, is 1.94% of the minimum bet per hand. But with a standard deviation of 3 times the minimum bet. Meaning 1 hand, with a 15 dollar min bet, has a mean of +29 cents and a standard deviation of 45 dollars. The standard deviation scales in proportion to the square root of the number of hands while the mean scales in proportion to it. So after 100 hands, the mean is +29 dollars and the standard deviation is 450 dollars. After 10 thousand hands, the mean is +2900 and the standard deviation is 4500 dollars. And after 100 thousand hands, the mean is now +29 thousand and the standard deviation is 14230. So it’s getting close. A million hands will do it. But at only 100 thousand, breakeven is only 2 standard deviations down, meaning about 4% of the time you will be behind. That’s hardly less than the probability of being hit by a car. That’s also if you do it perfectly, and of course note that 100 thousand hands will take you 1000 hours or 6 weeks straight. Realistically that’s a year of dedicated blackjacking. You will be banned from the casino long before that. And yes it’s still gambling. Just like buying stocks is gambling. I don’t care if the odds are theoretically slanted in your favor, you can lose, and if you can lose, you will lose, because murphy’s law.

Wish you would modify the program to allow you to select a counting method from a few popular ones and them display the true count somewhere on the screen. I use KO while playing this and it would be helpful if I knew how accurate I was counting.

No because the wallet is hosted on your own device. If anything, you’re funds are only susceptible to hacking if you leave it stored on Coinbase

Hey fellows. Just got into this blackjack interest after reading the blackjack life by N. Tilton. Any good software like CV out there for Mac?

Game is fixed.

Not as helpful as I thought, man i wish there was a sim like cs verite that is more user friendly and encourages user made strategies.

would be really nice if they can add 6/8 decks as well on realtime…

cancel that. I have just noticed the real time CA, dang this is better than simulations.

Is there an app for this?

Not at the moment but it’s something we are looking into building sometime hopefully in the near future

Using strategy trainer looks like it is one on one will the basic work on a full table or a few others

WHAT IS MY SCORE ON THE ABOVE QUIZ?

Your score is shown when you complete the quiz. Did you answer every question?

It used to tell me I should split a pair of 7s against a 10. Every so often I see some ridiculous error in it.

Ken is right on this, single deck only.

Its correct… because 2 of the cards that can help you, you already have in your hand.

Fixed thanks ðŸ™‚
