    British Rules Improved?

    Proper Insurance or just Even Money on Dealer Ace? EDIT: I know of two casinos that still employ that rule set, it isn't uncommon. (At least in my back yard...)

    British Rules Improved?

    Trad Brit Rules: D9,10,11 Only. No Split 4s,5s & 10s. Another joint by myself have dropped this diabolical rule set, In favour of DOA, Split any pair, RSA, with seemingly no limit on how many hands you may split to. I recently split up to 5 hands. A sign of the smaller joints struggling...

    funny you should mention that

    I've started to view variance as an even more critical factor than EV itself. Variance is what can turn a winning game into a loser. Double Kelly exemplifies this perfectly.

    card counting in Cardiff

    Grant, A lot of information must be taken into consideration when working out advantage, E.V, SD etc.. I recommend going to and downloading the 'powersim' software to evaluate your games. Unfotunately this software does not take into account the No Insurance rule...

    Bank roll and units

    Bank roll and units

    Hiya Kebo, 1000 unit bankroll is an optimal choice. By spreading 1-10 you will be betting roughly 'half kelly' making your RoR about 1-2%. If you reassess your bets every swing of say 10% or so, you will increase optimal growth whilst still keeping a very low RoR. If you find it difficult...
