    Default Quantify. Don S

    Quantify how many times per hour what you've described actually happens. No, make that, quantify how many times, every TEN hours, what you've described actually happens in the real world.

    Don

    Bam. There you have it in a nutshell folks. Don S never cared much for me. It's not a congeniality contest. This is about winning and MONEY. Therefore, personalities aside, I look for wisdom and work ethic. Don S has an abundance of both - like him or not.

    I look at how many times a situation might occur in a day, week, month, or year. Some of this stuff that you all are so adamant about might only occur 4 times a year. And that's for the guy who plays $100K hands annually. YOU want to know the frequent advantages...when your large bet is on the table. Or better yet, when, and more importantly when not to put out a large bet in the first place. THAT is where you find your profits.

    Don S should really put this statement on the back of his book jackets. It's not just good. It's brilliant.

    Norm, you said you want quality posts instead quantity? Well, forget the 390 posts in Adding AA78mTc side count to High Low. But never forget post 391.

    Of course, Don S post is followed by far more crap than I care to read. I'm the first to admit I have no experience in shoes. But it seems to me the option to walk away from a negative deck would trump 400 posts of rhetoric. Or if the goal is to "Wong In" to a positive deck, then why the abundance of additional knowledge required about negative decks?

    Strive to perfect your game and play within casino tolerance would eliminate the need for all this camouflage. Why play the game scared? You've got far too much in your head. No wonder you can't sleep. What you see is what you get. If the opposition can't handle that, it's unlikely you're getting a fair game in the 1st place. If you get banned while playing within casino tolerance, what good was it?

    It's quite clear this guy wants to sell a book. O boy, gimme some more of dat.

    Post #486. by BJ Aast.

    No one is reading your shit anymore. So make 14 more lengthy posts and you'll reach 500. Now, if you fum duckers will stop feeding him, maybe he will starve himself to death...or choke on his own .

    Whoa Norm. All you have going is T3, DBS, and BJ Ast. still repeating themselves well into the 500's on a thread no one cared about in the 1st place.

    Now we understand why you didn't close it. You'd have no posts. Anyone can see where you're going. It's called downhill FAST. What goes around comes around Norm Whathefucker.

    Get a room misfits (as T3 puts it).

    You want to repeat? Here is my response:

    KO + AA89mTc +5m7c = Primary count + secondary count + secondary count might beat Hi-OPT II + ASC = Primary count + Ace side count.

    KO + AA89mTc +5m7c = 3 components
    Hi-OPT II + ASC = 2 components
    It is losing battle for KO + AA89mTc +5m7c because you need more effort to achieve the same results. You have to do more work with KO + AA89mTc +5m7c vs Hi-OPT + ASC. This shows that Hi-OPT + ASC is more efficient compare to KO + AA89mTc +5m7c.

    Serious player writes:

    Excellent points. Wong Halves has only one component and still outperforms Hi Opt II. IF one chooses to add a component, it will blow them all away for shoe sims. 525 posts and most still can't get that. It's soooo siiimmmple. NO?

    My quarter says BJ Analyst is completely full of shit. I don't believe he can actually play what he say. Obviously, he can't say what he play after 538 posts. So normally, just like with RJCH, I would offer to be the house. The problem is I don't have a shoe, know how, or have the inclination to learn how to shuffle 6 decks of cards. But there is certainly some easy money to be made, for someone who does, to offer to be the house against him. But a stipulation would have to be he can't use his chips to count.

    IF, someone were to make him this offer, it would shut his ass up for good. Are you listening Tarzan? No one understands the shoe game better than you or is opposed to easy money more than you. No?

    In fact, the Jed Clampett approach might allow to reduce your playing time against this idiot. "Y'all come back now. "Hear"?

    Someone please, make it stop!!

    The Refinery writes:

    We agree? That's a scary thought. YOU make it stop. This guy is an Analyst...Not a player. And not a very good one at that. Well, he got the Anal part correct. Be the house! Trust me. He'll shut up. Or he will be stupid enough to play...and then you make money. Such a deal. No?

    Is it not time for this to stop................?

    Stealth writes:

    Norm, this thread is living proof you wonder around with your head waaaay up your ass most of the time. Now, your friends are trying to be nice. So let me interpret in way you might understand. CLOSE THE FUCKING THREAD!!!!

    The reason Griffin's EoRs are better at single deck is because he calculated them for single deck. Single deck, balanced counts with lots of indices.

    Norm writes:

    Well then he figured it wrong. One can tag 2 the at 0 and improve SCORE in a single deck sim. But tag 7 less than 2? SCORE declines.

    I had missed this in your past posts. I thought you used AA89mTc for all games. Since I play mostly DD and use HL, I agree it’s probably not two hard keeping a side count using Am6c and 7m9c. Can you explain again how you use this additional information and what boook it’s in? I’m sure it’s in one of your past posts, but there is no way I’ll ever be able to find it. Thanks!

    DBS writes:

    This was post #696 of that thread. Clearly a remark of someone with a tongue in cheek sense of humor. Norm, that was a line drive coming right at you. Either you ducked or couldn't catch it. Either way, it sailed right over your head. This thread should have been shut down at post 2. Based on your unwritten rules which attacked DBS thereafter.

    This thread speaks to your constant contradiction and playing of favorites personified. You're a bigger cartoon than Yosemite Sam and this thread proves it.

    Here is what you do.

    DBS. Clearly, you like to mess, (no fuck) with people. And you're quite good at it. One of the best I've seen. Since, you're primary game is DD and you use HiLO, I don't think you need keep doing the hand stand pushups in your chair. Hence, this still draws less attention than HiLO to the EITS.


    Try this. Exchange the tags of the 2 with the 7. Add .5 to the 5 and -.5 to the 9. Also add 14vs10 to your Sweet Sixteen. I've already done the work and it is a simple short move that WILL improve your game considerably and will totally fuck with the EITS counting along using HiLo. It's only a suggestion from a result of my tons hours in study. But check it out. I'm fairly certain your SCORE will soar with very little additional effort extended.

    True story: bjanalyst was running around his local casino from table to table. He'd put his nose about a half inch from the discard tray trying to decide if he should begin counting the table. They look at him like he's crazy, and when he's not around they say "oh him? He's harmless". It's because his $25 top bet would never scare a soul.

    Norman. NorMAN….NORM. There is a little switch behind your left ear. Click it and the light will come on. YOU just let a thread go on for 726 posts about a guy The Ref described? No worries, maybe someone could video some coyotes surrounding a kitten. THAT should more entertaining. Although not as sick.

    Take a bow. You've finally reached the pinnacle of your dumbest moment is history. And that is not easy.

    I thought T3 was the only one good at making things more complicated than necessary. What a waste of brain cells.
    After over 10000 BS bragging posts, it turns out that T3 doesn't even play BJ! What a damn joke, LOL!
    T3 is no threat to any casino because he spends most of his time bragging on BTF.

    Default Those Endearing Young Charms

    At 820 posts, this thread is starting to swamp the forum; which is not good considering that very few people have any interest in the subject and approximately no users will make use of the info. Can we try to reduce the number of posts going forward? In particular, the long, repetitive posts filled with formulas that its difficult to believe anyone reads.

    As for me, I kind of miss the Carla stories. This was the part that made this thread interesting.

    Default Is traveling a requirement if you want to make a living off card counting?

    Newbie asks:
    Obviously traveling will play a role no matter what, but do you guys normally play in just a certain region of the country? All over the country? All over the world? Etc.

    Define "make a living"? The problem is variance. You have to go to work in order to make money. In the event you do grow your funds, you still have to put your money to work for you. Rule of 72.

    IF you live in Vegas, why limit yourself to just blackjack?

    Eating on the run, catching flights, driving from city to city, gets old after awhile and that is if money is guaranteed. Ryemo leaves his family behind for weeks at a time. That could produce extreme negative EV down the road. Especially, if he hits a downturn and has to pull money out of savings for an extended period of time.

    Single guy who doesn't mind staring at felt several hours a day? I suppose he could travel on a shoestring. OF course there are limitations because you lose when your opponent forfeits. There is nothing to stop your opponent from telling other competitors. Doesn't hardly seem like a practical idea.

    Zee writes: Yes, i am serious. I think being succesful making a living at BJ is about as easy as making a living playing pro ball and the average career is just as short. One requires physical skills and the other requires mental skills. In one. newer players can displace and in other technology and advances does it

    There are other careers in sports where you can still make money without being a pro. Sadly, the arguments at BJTF are between being a "Pro" and making a living or a ploppy losing his ass.

    Ever consider the in between? Blackjack could be used as a way to supplement income. Bottom line is you must be present, take on risk, and work to make money in blackjack. Travel is costly, and would take away too much time to watch over your investments that should be making money for you.

    Suppose you invest your first $100k. Rule of 72. In 6 years, it's now $200K. In 12 years, it's $400K...and your workload was minimal. Now, suppose you have a $100k bankroll and play in Vegas to make $50k a year. Travel expense is minimal. But he is living hand to mouth because of variance. In 12 years, he's accumulated $600k but has very little to show for it because it got eatin up in rents etc etc. There is little time to seek other investments because he must always be staring at felt due to the variance of the game.

    The term "make a living" becomes earning income at the risk of tradeoff for your time. There is no room for capital appreciation. Only forum acceptance which is worth nothing.
