    There are no best betting strategies because they are all the same. I can understand that you may not understand this statement and the only good recommendation is to suggest that you need a good blackjack reference book. Somebody will recommend one.

    There is not such a thing as "the best betting strategy"
    Gaining an advantage in blackjack using betting variations, I would say no. Of course, there are plenty of exceptions to anything I say, it depends exactly on the situation, but normally if you try to gain advantage by money management alone, you will actually lose more. It all depends if you count and detect when you have edge and correlate your betting progression with the count. So, by manipulating your bets, I would say: you cannot get any edge by betting more or less based on the previous hands outcome.

    Money management in most people’s minds means quitting simply because of how you are doing that day, or continuing to play simply because of how you are doing that day. OR, betting more/less simply because of the result of the previous hand. In other words, you are in a game and you have lost x number of bets so you quit, only to come back tomorrow. OR, you lost a hand and now you increase your next bet hopping to win back what you lost in the first place. OR you lost x hands in a row and you quit, only to come back after the shuffle. Well, that is a silly concept because it is all one game and what matter is how much you bet when you have edge. You’re not increasing your bet because you lost the last hand or because you won the last hand. This is simply incorrect. This is not my opinion, this is simply incorrect. If you play in a game where you have the advantage, the more you play, the more you will eventually win. If you play in a game where you have the disadvantage, the more you play the more you will eventually lose. There’s no way of getting around that. If there was such a thing as getting around having an advantage simply by money management, you could go to the crap table and win by money management. In other words by quitting at the right time or not quitting at the right time OR by betting more after a loss or after a winning hand but you cannot do that. Money management is a completely spurious idea. The only thing that matters when you are gambling is to gamble when the odds are in your favor. And when you are in that situation play as long as you can. That’s really all there is to say. If you are a serious player, you are playing for the long run, not by the hour or by the day.
