    Default Another Song: "The Counter"

    You've got to know when to hit 'em,
    Know when to split 'em,
    Know when to double down,
    And know when to stand.

    You better count those cards
    When you see 'em on the table;
    It's no time for counting
    When you're playing your hand!

    Flash, Flash, meth head on crack.
    Norm said leave and never come back
    .
    The self professed legend won't be missed.
    Sitting with all those books and now he's pissed

    Flash, who Norm has allowed to return and everyone knows it, makes a good point.

    Tokes do not guarantee longevity; it just enhances it.
    Most of the dealers that I see certainly improve the
    depth of penetration when I am playing.

    Being in good standing with your dealers improves your position and certainly can't hurt it. IF you listen, you will learn many of these dealers, even pit bosses, socialize together. Ever wonder what they may be talking about during breaks? It could be YOU. Do you want them saying good stuff? or spewing bad? For a few bucks and being nice, I'll take the good.

    Now Flash, lay off the sauce and blue ink. Leave your puppet cult and ego behind and you just might have something of value to offer. I don't know. I wouldn't bet on it.

    Skinny BJ player writes to Zee:
    Amazing that a long long long time poster who claims to be a very frequent BHJ player who counts cards would stoop to ask this question.
    He is probably demented as I can see no other motivation for making a blooming fool of himself with a question that only a ploppy would pose.
    This is like a self-0described mathematician asking for the difference in measures of central tendency, or a seasoned auto mechanic asking -
    Crankcase? What is a crankcase?
    In this post a lovely Olde English descriptor - "crankpot" - leaps to mind.

    O brother. Here we go again with Mr Dubois ramblings. That's pronounced dumbass. Why didn't you just say "Zee, shut the fuck up."

    So to all the above? "Flash, shut the fuck up." So how easy that was?

    Thanks Norm. You're very astute not to see the obvious. Bosox, I'd better not ever hear another word from you again about puppets. Sick'em DBS/Bob and 15 other names.

    You live in California and haven't played here is 6 years? Which is it? California or New York. Yes, the PS pretty much shuts down any notions of the Hi Opt II success with high PE. Now you have to play the game with a larger spread. When you do? You get 86ed. This is especially true for out-of-towners. You have to make your spread count. In other words, you can't afford to bounce up and down with volatility...or you'll get bounced when your down. Strong deck compositions is key. Tarzan almost has it right.


    Peeps say that about Zee because swarthily complected elderly Afghani men are not often seen playing blackjack. Islam forbids gambling and, generally speaking, people from that part of the world, are smart enough to avoid addicting themselves to gambling, economic issues aside.
    Zee is a clear exception to those factors.

    You seem to know Zee very well considering you've only been posting for a month. How many in your cult this time? BJTF has ZERO credibility.

    Except for the fact that Don himself felt compelled to answer the question. I'm new around here so I'm not going to say much...I have no idea of the history of what the hell is going on between some posters and really don't care. But some people really need to grow up.

    Just another on a long list of posters who get banned and return under another handle. Norm will claim he didn't know and look the other way. I stick up for Norm as he is NOT that stupid. People like Bosox welcome him back and then berate DBS/Bob for having two handles on two different sites. This one is the worst though as he had his own cult, mostly of puppets, and pirated Norm's products. Used email accounts of the posters he could collect of posters and then shared them with others without their permission. And THIS is one of the good guys? Good Lord.

    KJ did the same damn thing, coming back as Spiderman. What a joke for serious blackjack players!

    Skinnyblackjack player a/k/a Flash writes:
    In the masterful and inexpensive paperback, Peter Griffin's "Theory of Blackjack"one can find the value of varying the PLAY of your hands. You can see that there is a set of playing variations, e.g. Insurance, 12 vs stiffs that are extremely valuable and many that have very little value. Thus, the "Illustrated 18."

    From a "math" standpoint, only 16 cards (in a 52 card deck) will break the hand. Thus a value in your friends Tarzan's approach. Don S did a great job of simplification with the ill 18.

    The 6th (and final) edition includes a table for multi-deck, although interpolation of the original single deck metrics was never hard to calculate with a sharp pencil
    and a scrap of paper.

    I dunno Flash. If all one is going to do is HiLO, why the need to read all those books? I'm inclined to agree more than disagree with your statement regarding single deck. However, imagine what can be done with a spreadsheet.

    Failing to read this wonderful magnum opus is a huge oversight, even if one's numeracy is non-optimal.

    What?

    There is so much to learn here to truly understand the game of Blackjack.

    How in the blue fuck did Griffin come up with the formula that gives the 2 more value than the 7 in terms of EOR? The is certainly far from reflected in SCORE. At least from a single deck standpoint. My understanding is all his theories began from the 52 card deck. No?

    One line in particular I liked in Griffin's book was "great engineers understand complex equations. But the best know how to make complex simple again." It was something
    along those lines.
