Bet spread/betting recommendations with $5k bankroll.

#1
What sort of bet spread would you recommend in 8 deck H17 DAS no RSA games with about 75-85% penetration on a $5k bankroll? I imagine Wonging would massively reduce my RoR, so perhaps I could simply never play below a TC -1 or even below TC 1.

Can you back count the game or are the tables filled ?

Yeah, sorry, table min $5. I plan to play with table min $5 only with this small of a bankroll, unless I can be shown that risk can still be kept low with higher minimums. I have many casinos that I can access so I imagine at least some of the games can be backcounted.

I am no expert, I do not have CVCX....but I'll start with this, then someone will correct this faster and help you out!!

-2: DON'T PLACE A BET!!!
-1: $5
0: $5
+1: $5
+2: $30
+3: $50
+4 and above: $100

(these are all "True Counts")

The upfront house edge at that game "8 decks, H17, no surrender" does not warrant a six-unit bet at a TC of +2. At most bet $15 or $20 there. Now you only jump up $20 going from a TC of +2 to a TC of +3 where you should now at the very least be doubling your bet.

Ok, I play 6 deck, not 8....but, I am sure it is the same answer. I don't know who plays 8 decks these days, that would not be pleasant!

Is this spread ok for 6 deck, typical good rules....$10k bank roll and 1-10 bet spread?

+1: $10
+2: $30
+3: $50
+4 and above: $100

I know you won't accept this advice but with a bankroll of $10K, look for a hole card game(s).
He doesn't have $10k BR, which is why it is some work to make it at the minimum bet levels today. At $10k, I don't think you have to have hole card games but that's always a good one to find..........LOL At ANY limit.
