Hey All!!! What is Penetration
  • Hey all just curious question what is exactly pentration is that how good the count is?
  • It is what percent of the total cards in play that the dealer actually deals.

    For example, in a 6 deck shoe, most casinos have the dealer use a slot in the shoe to insert the shuffle card. If this slot causes the shuffle card to be inserted about 1.5 decks from the back of the cards, then this is called 75% penetration (dealer is dealing 4.5 out of 6 decks). The better (deeper) the penetration, the better for a card counter. For a basic strategy player, less is better as it slows the game down.

    booyah?
  • actually i see now the casino all put each hands cards into a card machine which we cannot see what s inside that machine


    and seems i havent seen them have to shuffle the cards

    may be the machine already did many times auto shuffle during our playing , so is that in this case , counting card is exactly no any use ?
  • Correct. that is a "continuous shuffling machine." Card counting can not beat it. It is a losing game for all players...
