    Using bitcoin while traveling seems like a good solution. Anyone doing it already?

    Another way make some good money is to invest in earnings with stable coin like USDD or USDT. Pegged to the U.S Dollar. Annual interest rates of 20-35%. Can compound daily or bi-weekly. Yes, you will have pay capital gains if you withdraw it to fiat currency. But in Canada that's only 15%, and...

    His spread was super aggressive. But I highly doubt this was hours drive to play like that or he was flying home that night or something. It wouldn’t make sense.

    Are you even really making much money off spreading 1-4 units? You are being paranoid. I'm sure that Casino you play at has backed off many counters. Probably at some point they backed off one the day before you played there and you didn't even know about it.... I'm willing to bet that youngster...

    I can answer any clumping question here.

    I was really hoping you would still have the machine to make a demo... That would of been tipping point in the argument. Likely would of changed everyone's mind here. But now we are here left with only hearsay. No hard evidence. So much like Don said "the beat goes on". As for Casino's...

    I can answer any clumping question here.

    If the shoe gives high counts every other. Then that’s just variance. Have to remember Blackjack is beatable about 25% of the time. So 25% of the time it will be TC1+. If we are talking about millions of shoes. That’s very possible to have “every other” shoe be super positive. But to touch on...

    I can answer any clumping question here.

    Just for everyone’s curiosity on the ASM, there is “sort” mode. When the cards come out their all sorted .aces with aces, kings with kings, like if you bought brand new deck. You do this at end of shift. Fan it out for cameras .then you must count down all the cards make sure every card is...

    If you have this machine. Can you make it shuffle and fan the cards out for us? Make a video. Manipulate the cards in the manner you want.

    I can answer any clumping question here.

    First off, the dealer tilting the cards towards him during shuffle to manipulate the cards. LOL. In gaming school, you are taught to do that. It actually creates a smoother riffle. Not as hard on the cards. Like I said before, no dealer would be asked to manipulate the cards. It’s way too risky...
