Betting styles that got me barred from the casino!!!
  • I was just curious of the differen't betting styles that people use when card counting. A style that I won with a lot worked like this I would bet $5 when the count favored the casino and $25 when the bet favored me I would go back and forth between red and green chips so I would not have a big pile of chips so it would be slightly less visual! This plan of attack worked for me for a about a year playing 1 hour sesions at a time ending up $40-$50 on average! I would never bet $25 of the top of the deck always $5 the $25 bet was always on the second round of play if I liked what I say!!! I believe that betting $25 on the first round of play a couple of times especially when I first sit down at the table might have camouflauged my card counting abilities and they might not of barred me from playing blackjack!!! I hope that you don't make my same mistake!!!
  • why in the world don't you read one of the many excellent BJ books that are available. If you go to Vegas, Pi Ye (not sure that is spelled right) is not far from the MGM grand area. Or you can visit the gambler's bookstore. Or go to amazon. Or your local book store. Once you get a good book, all the betting stuff and everything else will be a little less of a problem for you...

    reading helps, rather than just blindly stumbling about hoping you bump into something useful rather than something deadly...

Howdy, Stranger!
