The advantage of the 1-hour playing session!!!
  • One big advantage of playing in a one hour playing session is that it is much easier to come out a winner. Weather if you have a positive or negative expectation when you play you are more likely to come out a winner after playing for just one hour as oppossed to 4. If you are playing with an advantage if you only play for 1 hour it is likely that the casino will see your winnings as "luck" rather than skill.
    Another advantage of playing a 1 hour session is that you will not get fituged and will make less errors.
    One note on this is your playing session does not have to be an hour exactly just some where in the neighborhood of an hour. I prefer to cash out my chips in the middle of the deck when the count has gone south rather than at the start of the deck. If you always end the day when the count has gone south you can increase the amount that you win because the next time that you come back the deck will have been shuffled and all the cards you want will become available again.
  • And this information is based on ......?
  • Short sessions & wong out when negative. What did you read?

    I have to disagree with that for obvious reasons.

  • Me to Sonny.....I think what LTC was trying to say is you may slide by if you make your sessions short. But, unknown to him, that has nothing to do with being more likely to win. Further, I think a play all situation in pitch games pretty much covers his experiences.

    Jim's attack on shoe games has a completely different meaning.
  • LTC, I disagree. I think playing for 83 minutes is really optimal. I understand why you say an hour -- that has been current theory for quite some time. But based on my computer simulations, 83 minutes is really the optimal time you should play.

    Also, please fill out my poll if you get a chance, would be interested to know.
  • I find playing for 47 minutes to be optimal.Thats enough time to take three smoke breaks,two bathroom breaks,impress the female PB with my manly charms and win a few bucks.But on Tuesdays,I find 73 minutes works better.
  • I think while playing in a high limit room with a famous NBA player that 234 minutes was optimal, since he was getting all the attention.

    But while playing black chips at the Western .0002 minutes was far too much.

    Got to give this much more thought!
