For real players who go to the casino for blackjack, perhaps the best betting progression system is Dahl"s progression. Blackjack is a game of cycles and the best way to play is by combining basic strategy and Dahl's Progression with the winning and losing cycles found within each session. Like the stock markets, these cycles can be monitored and used to gauge trends found within each session. Basic strategy, Dahl's Progression and technical trend monitoring of the session, has produced more winning blackjack sessions for me than any other strategy that I have used. Despite what card counters do in simulated play, real blackjack action requires an approach that is usable in real life. There will be winning and losing sessions, the best approach is to recognize the trend, and continue or terminate play as indicated by the trend. Recently at a casino in upstate NY, I caught a brief upswing trend which allowed me to win $230.00 with a $15 base bet Dahl's Progression in 20 minutes. I recognized the trend reversal and left the table. I monitored the player who took my seat and found he had a negative then flat trend cycle. Had he used Dahl's Progression, he would reduced his losses and may have recovered, but he was flat betting and then put all in, only to lose it all.
