Ken Smith on Gambling With an Edge Podcast

Gambling with an Edge

Earlier this year, I was the guest on the Gambling With an Edge radio show in Las Vegas. I mentioned it in the BlackjackInfo email newsletter, but I just realized that it never got posted here on the blog.

The show includes a couple of stories that I think BlackjackInfo visitors will find interesting. I describe one play where I won over $100,000 on a single hand of cards, and another play at a 2:1 blackjack promotion that yielded a big profit along with an uncomfortable situation.

You can listen to the show, and see more details at Gambling With an Edge.

    Hi Ken I’ve learnedken Uston Advanced plus minus really kind of struggling with all the – numbers is there any reason to learn the minus numbers above -5 you aren’t you’re not going to run into that much. I would like your advice on that.. and do you think this is the best count for today’s action or should I switch to a high low I don’t think I’m able to play level 2 account thank you spraymaster and I’m also from the same area you are from would love to meet you sometime I admire all your website very much and very respectful to your knowledge I would like to find someone to help find tune

    • A few points:
      1) You are correct about ignoring the high negative count indexes. You shouldn’t be playing many of those counts anyway, and when you do you will have your minimum bet out. It’s not worth the effort knowing the indexes for these situations.
      2) I recommend everyone start with either KO or Hi-Lo until you are quite experienced. The extra errors you will make with a complex count combined with the mental fatigue will mean you are likely to do worse with an advanced count. I know one full-time pro who still uses KO exclusively. He understands that ease of use really is important.
      3) You mention being from the same area, but I suspect you are mistaking me for the GameMaster. As for me, I’ve recently moved from Mississippi to Texas.
