    I didn't see any obvious errors .... except for ignoring 3:2 blackjacks, double downs, splits, etc. Quite an omission IMO.

    For 30k, keep it at home, somewhere safe. Like a discreet safe. If you're constantly depositing and withdrawing cash, eventually you may get some attention from the IRS or Treasury.

    It's not jealousy. You're just the latest person to present themselves as some hot-shot blackjack player, who clearly has very little understanding of the game. The question you asked very, very...

    It's certainly worthy to call out a cheating dealer, but it's certainly not at "the top of reddit" as you claim. Let's tone down the ego a little, bigshot. Keep it real.

    Where is this at "the top" of reddit? All I saw was you getting laughed out of /r/blackjack, then getting banned.

    I don't know off-hand, it's been a while since I've coded one.

    I should also point out that I don't think there's a problem with CVDATA or CVCX; there's almost certainly a subtle difference in your settings and analysis that you are overlooking. All the more...

    And now let's add dice control to his list of expertise - proudly backed off many times from the craps table. (Perhaps if he hadn't heeded repeated warnings to hit the back wall..)

    It's a tournament. The chips are worthless, and it's silly to call them "87 million!" or whatever. Just hype to make it sound more exciting. Objectively they might as well call it 87 cents.
