  • Norm...
    I was there on Thursday from 11am to 3pm at the $2.00 CSM table...
    Had great time and love that place...

    Finished with $160 profit after dealer & waitress tips,
    and that includes winning $27 on the Mad Money Wheel : 2 BJ Spins...

    My Bets ranged between $2.00 to $40.00 max...
    Used 2, 2, 4, 10, 20, 40 Delayed & Limited Progression/Regression...
    Never lost more than 5 Hands in a Row...

    Going again on Monday, Tuesday, and Wed. next week.
  • Quote from Walter Thomason,

    "Before becoming a positive progressive player,
    I played "inspirational" and "basic strategy/flat bet" blackjack for over 25 years,
    and never had a winning year.
    I've been a progressive bettor for the last 5 years,
    and have yet to have a losing year."
  • sorry, but that is pure voodoo. If you can beat BJ with a progression, you can _certainly_ beat a fair coin toss also, as the house advantage there is zero. Or you can beat craps. Or any other game. Check out the wizardofodd's challenge to all such betting systems. No one has yet taken the challenge and won. Because any statistician knows cards can not be predicted, unless one counts them from a non-CSM game...
  • SSR...Re : "sorry, but that is pure voodoo"...

    Yes, it maybe "voodoo" for you,
    but NOT for us, and many others who REALIZE that
    Counting Cards is NOT the ONLY Way to Beat Blackjack...
    The Real-World "ACID-TEST" of any Strategy is in the CASINO,
    NOT on the Computer.
  • Insurance company people are all card counters...........
  • surfteq:

    There are other ways of beating the game of 21 besides pure card counting. One, shuffle-tracking, depends on counting so we exclude that. Another is ace-tracking. Another is hole-carding. Another is "spooking". But betting a progression is absolutely, 100%, with no exceptions, a losing strategy. If you feel otherwise, feel free to toss money down the rat hole into the casino's bank account. But you will _not_ win money with a progression, long-term. Short-term, anything can (and will) happen. But long-term, a progression is a losing strategy.

    You can post such voodoo on any card counting web site I can think of and you are going to get _exactly_ the same response. Progressions do _not_ work, period...
  • Sufteq, take a look at wizardofodds.com. They have a great article about progression systems. The webmaster offered $20,000 to anyone that could come up with a progression system that actually gave you an edge. After many years, a few took the test, but no one could come up with a system that showed any significant advantage.

Howdy, Stranger!
