Renzey said:Why do you gamble? To have fun, or to win? I have noticed that most gamblers want to gamble worse than they want to win. And so, they get their wish.
Playing a winning game at any kind of gambling is work! The fun comes in the winning. Two blackjack players, one a funloving typical type and the other a competent card counter sit at the same blackjack table. While they're there, the typical player is having fun "playing" at his game and the competent card counter is "working" at his. If the deck breaks even, on the way home the typical player is experiencing disappointment and the card counter is having fun.

I've changed my tune and now am ready to put in the time and concentration necessary for a more advanced counting system. In fact, I spent the flight home counting down a deck...no where near 30 seconds yet! I began with learning Basic Strategy, added Renzey's mag 7 hands, then used the Ace/Ten front count. Perhaps, that is the key, we each have to go through the learning process and prove to ourselves that having the edge counting gives IS fun!
