By this line of thinking, going from a game with 0.0 edge off the top to one with 0.1 edge off the top means you have "inflated your disadvantage" infinitely! Which is senseless. For a card counter, going from a game with to a game without soft double means making about .1 less money times aggregate bet, which is a useful amount but not a game-changing, massive figure. For some kind of basic strategy player well yeah, you'll lose your money somewhat faster in the latter but so what? Either way, you're still a loser. So are we talking about BS losers here, or card counters?
