    How do I read the blackjack apprentice H17/S17 Chart?

    Steely, an important point here to be made about the player holding any two-card hand and the True Count is +3 or above when the dealer is showing an Ace upcard. A card counter will deviate at that point from the basic strategy player by taking insurance which the basic strategy player never...

    How do I read the blackjack apprentice H17/S17 Chart?

    First you are confused about what is a deviation the doubling down is the deviation. Now you need to look at that chart again as you having an eleven vs Ace up card is not a +3 to deviate unless you are using some counting system that I am not aware of. Last , yes I recommend that you read...

    Chasing aces.

    Any time you are putting more money on the table you are increasing variance. When playing two hands betting with proper money management you will get more money on the table while keeping the risk of ruin the same as playing only one hand with a 25% higher max bet than playing two hands of 75%...

    Change in Playing conditions Pre-Covid v Post Covid?

    That is just one state I don't recommend you try out one specific sovereign nation reservation up north from AC. Who's practice does not even have plexiglass on all the tables in one of the high limit pits because some customers prefer to play without them, at least that is how it was up to the...

    Change in Playing conditions Pre-Covid v Post Covid?

    Casinos' are using questionable and speculative safety measures without real concern for employees, and customers. Who cares if some lives are lost in the process? Not to mention spreading the virus more in the name of profits. Why stop there, as you cannot get any worse than that? Greed will...

    No individual member is above the game itself. Differences in skill/betting levels among members are enormous but everyone is and should be respected. Fortunately for newer players, there are some very knowledgeable members with decades of experience who are more than happy to answer various...

    Ho Chunk Casino (Baraboo, WI)

    No I do not think so. I thought that he was very courteous in his response. Why would a platoon Sargent who sets an example give any slack to recruits?

    Ho Chunk Casino (Baraboo, WI)

    I deleted a sentence in the above quote, plus the name of the casino. It is not the dealer hits on S17, it is one or the other H17 or S17. When you see something good in a casino, in this case, the Penn please don't put it on open forums. You will find that doing so upsets people who take the...

    I rather be Lucky than Good

    Joe, sorry about being rude. Just I cringe anytime someone says that they are playing with house money.

    Well, you established one thing, and that is you are no better than those Canadians you were playing with.

    What the hell does the age thirty have to do with anything in a casino anyway?

    Excessive bids

    You stay out of it and say nothing. That is in fact showing respect for the people who pay the bills. Jees, I just noticed I answered a post from Nov 3rd.

    This Is Poor Penetration, Right?

    Okay, until then you just crush it. Really, I do not think so. Going to two spots of $1500 each from a $25 bet gives you a rough total for both hands of around $ 45 in positive EV. Along with that $45 in EV you will suddenly see floor people coming out of the woodwork observing you.

    If you never heard of the term preferential shuffling before, you will learn about it quickly.

    I counted my first shoei

    You have something backward. Why would you have more money bet on each of three hands than what you have bet on each of two hands? Unless you are sure there is only going to be one more round left to be played in the shoe there is no reason to be playing three spots. Last, if you are...
