Whats the probabilty??
  • Hey I have a quick question for anyone out there :? . Me and my friend were thinking about pulling our money together to take the house with a progressive betting strategy. The progression 1-2-3-6-12 will be used. I was wondering what is the likely hood of us losing 7 hands in a row by just playing BS? Whats the probability of that? We are playing 6 decks, dealer stays on 17, split aces once, split up to 3 times, and double after split. Thanks all! :D
  • At a typical casino table with 100 hands being dealt per hour, you should expect to go on a losing streak of 10 hands in a row about once every 15 hours of play. Expect to go on a losing streak of 15 hands about once every 60,000 hands (every 6 years). And about once in your lifetime playing 500,000 hands, expect to lose 18 hands in a row. These numbers are courtesy of The Mayor. Keep in mind that the losing streak could come as soon as you sit down at the table.

    The sure way to make money off of a progression system is to write a book about it. Other than that I would avoid it like the plague. If you want to play BS and increase your chases of winning without card counting I would suggest flat betting and, rub coconut oil all over your body before playing, or wear a yellow shirt, or place 2 rabbit feet in your left pocket and 1 in your right, or play with your left leg crossed over your right, or play only to the right of a very large person, or wink at the dealer every third hand (it does not matter if they are the same sex as you), or finally if your really want to win the big money stand up after each win and shout as loud as you can "TO HELL WITH THESE HERPES I'M HERE TO WIN!". What ever way you choose just remember the BS and the flat betting part if you won't be card counting.

    One more thing, you may lose more than some money at the table, you may lose your friend. The best of luck to you and your friend.
