I haven't seen much written about bet spreads... What is the minimum needed? The max before you get noticed? How much 8x affects edge from 15X?

Not sure what you are asking. Minimum for what? To be positive EV? The max depends upon the tolerance of a particular casino or shift. It varies place to place and sometimes shift to shift. Do you have CVCX?

"SELF-IMPOSED BET-SPREAD" is unneeded and unhelpful - sometimes even harmful enough to invite "RISK OF RUIN." A card counter only needs to bet according to Kelly criterion, with the ULTIMATE BET-SPREAD set by the TABLE MINIMUM and the TABLE MAXIMUM, not by the artificial SELF-IMPOSED BET SPREADS.

moraine, you have a lot to learn. If your objective is to quickly burn out the joint for yourself as quickly as you can then I guess you have the right approach. Better be prepared to travel a lot.
