    Thats the WORST WAY for 4-5 counters to spend their time. And YOU need to hunker down and really learn about this game before your posts and comments will be of value to anyone, other than comic value, aye mate? G’day! zg

    There was a really good article about how to effectively use multiple counters and spotters in Blackjack Attack.

    Wouldn’t it be better for each counter to hit a different casino?

    Being new to Blackjack, I keep reading everywhere that my first point of call should be to learn BS. I’m from Melb so I would most likely be playing at Crown Casino and was wondering if someone could help me out with getting the right BS table from http://www.blackjackinfo.com/bjbse.php

    It would be greatly appreciated if someone could outline the specific rules of blackjack at Crown.

    Thanks.

    I just came back from Australia, and I visited Crown Casino. Their BJ rules are 8 decks, S17, Double 9, 10, 11 only, no surrender, penetration around 70-75%. Don’t think its a good game.

    hahaha thats like the best game we get in Australia. In QLD they are only 6 deck.

    I live in Southbank, Melbourne and go to Crown very often. In the main gaming floor they have recently introduced Sports Blackjack which are $10-$200 8-deck shoe games, No Hole Card, H17, DAS, D9/10/11 and penetration ~75% with blackjack paying 6-to-5!!. Upstairs they still have the usual $10-$200 Crown Blackjack with all the same rules above except bj pays the normal 3-to-2.

    I have recently started using ReKO (http://www.qfit.com/rekostrategy.htm) with moderate success (won $850 in 2 visits in roughly 10 shoes) at the tables upstairs. But from my own CVCX simulations the win rate will be about $15/hr in the long run given those Crown Blackjack rules. I have realised that the most important thing at the moment for me is the get enough bankroll and time to spend if I really want to make a decent earning from it.

    I know Crown’s rules are very bad, but they are still beatable (according to CVCX simulation). You just need patience. And given it’s just metres away from my house I think it’s the only reasonable choice for me.

    They do use quite a few CSM machines but there are still shoe games available, I think the ratio of CSM to shoe games is roughly the same.

    Worst game rules imaginable.

    I simply do not believe that the game that you describe is beatable without a HUGE spread.

    What spread did you have the software use for the simulation?

    24-1 ?, 32-1 ?, 40-1 ?

  • jimmy

     

    it’s a 20 to 1 spread as described on the reKO strategy website. I simply use $10-200 instead of $5-100. Oh and I actually used CVData not CVCX. I included all the ReKO index, running count parameters and the betting ramp in the simulation. It gave me a player advantage of roughly 0.3% over 400 million hands (if you play every hand) and an advantage of 0.5% if you only play when the running count is favourable. The hourly earning is about $8 and $15, respectively.

  • jimmy

     

    oops i just realised that the demo version of CVData does not produce correct results (which mine is). Can anyone kindly do a simul under those rules if they have a real copy? maybe I am just lucky after all…
