1. ### Great software for memorizing basic strategies, indexes, etc

http://mnemosyne-proj.sourceforge.net/ I use it to study but it can be used for anything where you are required to memorize things, such as blackjack when you have to memorize different basic strategies or hundreads of index plays. It is great because it only asks what you forget or are about...

4. ### bankroll

Yahoo's blackjack was updated! You now get paid 3:2 on blackjacks, you can choose to have games from 1 to 6 decks, hit or stand on soft 17, you don't get any more blackjacks after you split tens or aces and I think you can't double 3 cards anymore. You can also choose the limits and the...
5. ### Keeping The Count With Aides

There is also hexadecimal, instead of using 2 or 10 digits, it uses 16! It goes on like this: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,1A,1B...FF,100... 2*2=4 In the binary world, this would give 10*10=100 In the hexadecimal world, it gives 2*2=4 If you take...

7. ### Pecentages related to sequential losses

Probability of one occurance to the power of the number of occurances. If I take your example: .53 = Probability of 1 occurance (.53)^2 = Probability of 2 occurances in a row (.53)^3 = Probability of 3 occurances in a row etc...
8. ### Keeping The Count With Aides

Binary have 2 numbers instead of 10. It have 0 and 1. After 1, since there is no number left, you have 10. It's like our system but without 2...9, so 1,10,11,100,101,110,111,1000 etc. The number 4 means your middle finger is up. That was the joke.
9. ### Side-counting every cards?

The only thing is that, with my current level of skills, it would not be practical to do that in a real casino environment. It takes me about 5-10 seconds to remember that card X is the Yth card that was dealt, so doing it for every card would be nearly impossible especially if the dealer is...
10. ### Side-counting every cards?

I recently read some books about mnemonic techniques to help me to study and some of them explained how to memorize a full deck perfectly. I practiced a little bit and can perfectly memorize the order of the 52 cards of a shuffled deck in a little bit over 5 minutes. Some folks on TV use the...

I think you meant 3,500,000,000 since it's impossible to get less than 1 billion if you throw a billion dices.
12. ### AP Slot play?

The odds of hitting a number at the roulette wheel is 1/38. If you track the number of spins it takes to hit a 1 (or any other number) you should get closer and closer to 38. Of course when odds are one out of many thousands it might be longer but it's still doable, but it would be a...
13. ### AP Slot play?

But if you take the number of spins it takes for each jackpot to be hit and average it out, it should pretty close to the actual odds of getting the jackpot if you have a large enough sample.
14. ### AP Slot play?

You could try to estimate the number of spins between each jackpot is won. If you take a large amount of spins, you should get somewhere a number near the odds of winning it. Then do the same with each kind of payout, you then know the odds of catching each kind of payout and then you can...
