and/or. . .
in addition to Sonny's suggestions, another route is to pick up CVBJ and CVShuffle and teach yourself by playing around with the shuffle analysis tools. Actually, I think you could learn a lot just by picking up the demo version, which will give scrambled results but could teach you...
puzzled by the question *LINK*
It's obviously not either/or. Why wouldn't you want to use play variations, too?
Play variation alone isn't worth much, though you can do OK with only a betting strategy, as others have already said. As for how play variation (in this case the I18) combined with...
