    "back betting" - help please?

    Hi, I've wanted to do some research on backbetting for a while but I don't even know if it's worth it. You know when you have the possibility of standing behind people playing and betting behind their bets... I know it's not usually a good thing to bet like that because (even if the player was...

    when to play two hands....

    Nice spreadsheat, I'd like to be able to use it without a simulator though. HAHA! I just don't understand why I should speed 100$ to run a simulation that gives me #'s that I will then never change? I mean, I see from Safefr0g's TC statistics that the advantages truely don't evolve in a linear...

    Calculating risk with kelly formula????

    This is a longshot, I'd like to know if its possible to find a risk multiplyer using the kelly formula. Why? Well I know that if you take a 100$ bet and split it in 2 to bet 50$ on each of 2 hands, your Risk is lowered and the EV is the same (not taking into account the card depletion rate). So...

    When to take a walk.

    I find this side of blackjack very interesting. The dealer's "bust card" is the biggest myth in blackjack but still, I have talked about this with someone that has played a lot of blackjack in their lifes, you will always have people that beleive in the dealer's bust card myth and some who...

    "Optimal EV/Minimal Risk" - ALL you need to know about spreading to 2 or 3 hands

    thanks a lot for validating these results for me Well I said 2 hands with 5 other people cuse I thought there was only 7 available spots to play from at the table (2+5). Does that mean you could actually fit 8 hands somewhere on a standard blackjack table?

    When to take a walk.

    Picture it this way, instead of looking at the shoe as a bunch of cards in a certain order, look at it as 1 card (the next card coming out) and the odds that any card may be the next card are all equal (just think of the cards as a peice of carton paper). So if a ploppy decides to take a card...

    "Optimal EV/Minimal Risk" - ALL you need to know about spreading to 2 or 3 hands

    good morning everyone! So I finished the calculations last night, but I didn't take time to explain the theory behind what I did for those of you who want to know without reading all the equations... So it was fairly simple. First thing I assumed is that there was a number of hands "x" left...

    "Optimal EV/Minimal Risk" - ALL you need to know about spreading to 2 or 3 hands

    Math deductions and draft for all the calculations Kelly formula for the optimal bet when in an advantage situation: bet = bankroll x edge / variance With this formula, we can find the optimal bet for 1, 2, or 3 hands. Spreading to more than 1 hand will not increase the Risk as long as...

Although please don't...

    for those of you with math skills

    I'm not too sure about this... Pretend you are in a situation where where you want to keep your same EV but wanted to MINIMIZE THE RISK factor without changing the size of your bankroll or unit bet. I could very well tell you exact percentage of the 1 hand bet to place to minimize the risk while...
