  • One of the Moderators of this board should make a 10 commanments thread that stays at the top of the page.

    Like 10 things to never do at the table.
    10 things to do before you sit at a table.

    It would be helpful for the new comers to this forum, like me.
  • Rule #1: If you're not counting, make minimum bets and just have fun.

    Anyone care to add some more?

    yes..... a modification.

    Rule #1: If you're not counting, make minimum bets and just have fun but if thou are counting thou shalt not over bet.

    and perhaps,

    Rule #2: before thou shalt step foot in a casino know exactly what thou art going to do in every concievable situation.

  • Rule #3: Thou shalt not pinch the dealers bottom for luck else thou shal find thine self outside the casino in pain.

    hmm, i suggest we have a vote once all the commandments are in....
    wouldn't that fall under the grey area of pushing your luck :?

  • Thou shalt NEVER EVER tell the other players at the end of a round what you or they woulda',coulda',or shoulda' done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • If your not a pro and you get ahead leave.At least put some of it away.If we assume the books are correct and the house has 1% or 1.5% or whatever against a resonable basic strat then this is not impossible to overcome at least in the short term,but the vast majority of players play till they lose.Think about that for a second.This makes leaving with a profit impossible.
    So if you buy 100 and find yourself with 150 put the 100 back and play the 50.If you lose that get out.

    YOU WON'T WIN

    the now legendary words of Arnold Snyder

  • Know Basic Strategy for Hit and Stand 17.
    Look for Surrender games, and keep an eye open for Resplit Aces.
    Do not play at tables that are both H17, and no Double After Split.
    Never play 6:5 Blackjack, PERIOD.
    Avoid 8-deck games, and 6-deck games with less than favorable rules: 6 or 8 deck games of Stand soft 17 are preferred.
    It is sometimes better to bet 1-4 at a $25 table than it is to try 1-10 at a $10 table.
    Progressions are not advantageous, just lucky.
    Mind your manners but defend your seat. Juice is for losers.


    Well, thats 8 anyway, how about a few dozen more...
