Your tables effect on your results!!!
  • Have you ever noticed that when you are playing single deck blackjack that some people at the table will flash their cards to you before you make your decision on your hand? This will effect how you play you hand say you are holding a 13 against a dealer 2 the closet play in blackjack as two weather or not to hit now lets say that in a single deck game you see that the person next two has 2 tens in his hand! The close play is now a hit now lets say he has 5-7 in his hand the close play is now a stand because both of the cards in his hand don't bust you and their for the cards that are left have an increased chance of busting you. The same can be said with 16 vs a dealer 10 if the person sitting next to is holding 2 5's you should hold if they are holding 2 10's you should hit!!! If the person next to is flashing you can make more informed decisions on your hand if they are making a point to hide their cards you can't make as good of decisions on your hand!!!
  • Are you making your hit/stand decisions based on the COUNT after seeing your neighbor's cards? I have not heard of your strategy before.
  • Yes you are! It is a modified basic stragedy not learned in the stragedy section of hit or stand and it only occurs in 3 moves out of a 100 situations!
    One of the other things I forgot to mention sometimes your neighbor might want to double for less sometimes if you say to him can I make up the difference and get the win or loss. Some people will say yes and others will decline when there is choice play next to the people that say sure!!! These players have a better attiutude and are giving you good bets at the same time. I have noticed that I have better results when I think the people next to me are nice rather than priks!!! I believe that this does not just go for blackjack in paw gow poker one time I heard a story of a man who got a 7-card straight flush he asked the table for $500 or he would throw his hand away! The table said no and he threw his hand in saving the casino $1,000's of dollars. The casino did not have to payout other people's bonus bet and the person who threw their hand away lost his bet!!!
  • sometimes i have to wonder if learningtocount isn't putting us all on.
  • It's impossible to insult this guy. He just keeps coming at you. He's kind of amusing in a twisted sort of way. I wonder who he really is?
  • I bet its another account of a regular poster on this board having a bit of fun.
  • I'm not sure what he/she is supposed to be... But the level of denseness seems too high to be an act... at least in my opinion...
  • Copying another writer's information without credit, in my opinion, has been his biggest mistake.

    Like the rest of you I to have been amazed at most of LTC posts. My theroy is that he-she is some one new to the country with limited laungage skills whos first job was as a casino dealer. i think he/she is learning bj by osmoses from watching the players because there english skills are not yet good enough to read and/or understand books that would help him. Thats my take :confused:
  • you can't insult him-he just keeps coming at you. yep-he's just having a little fun-pretty witty really!
