The Probabilitys of losses in a row are :
2 1 in 3
3 1 in 8
4 1 in 18
5 1 in 38
6 1 in 81
7 1 in 168
8 1 in 356
9 1 in 713
10 1 in 1666
11 1 in 3332
12 1 in 9999
These are the "probabilitys" and I am not sure how they can help you.
Sage said:Thanks midnight, I went to the "Wizard of Odds" web site at http://www.wizardofodds.com/ and found the following:
The probability of an overall win in blackjack is 43.33%, a tie is 8.78%, and a loss is 47.89%. I'm going to assume you wish to ignore ties for purposes of the streak. The probability of winning n hands is a row is .475^n . So the probability of winning six in a row is 1.1487% and seven in a row is 0.5456%.
using the formulas he gave I calculated the following:
.475^n
Wins In a row
1 47.5000%
2 22.5625%
3 10.7172%
4 5.0907%
5 2.4181%
6 1.1486%
7 0.5456%
8 0.2591%
9 0.1231%
10 0.0585%
.525^n
Loss in row
1 52.5000%
2 27.5625%
3 14.4703%
4 7.5969%
5 3.9884%
6 2.0939%
7 1.0993%
8 0.5771%
9 0.3030%
10 0.1591%
Do these number fit with your numbers??
