I've got between 75-100 hours of practice, basic memorized (with some helpful mnemonic devices if anyone's interested), and a bankroll of 1000 units roughly 250 max bets. That's right I only plan on using a bet spread of 1-4 as described here http://www.am3-radio.us/Ace5.pdf. As much as I can guess my SCORE will be near 2.1 which might not sound like a lot but is significantly more than most people make who are my age. I am concerned however, because no one seams to talk about the type of count I use which is the Revere Ace-Five. Is this not an effective count? If not why does the Wizardofodds promote it as one? Also, because my bet spread is small and the units would be with red chips, would I likely ever get heat? I am told using bet progressions works as an adequate cover, but which progressions and how do you incorporate them into the count? What should a session bankroll look like? How long should a session be? Could I play full time? I live 2 hours from AC BTW. I know there are many questions here but I appreciate the answers.
