Mad Dog Posted January 19, 2008 Report Share Posted January 19, 2008 Lately I've been monitoring dealer hands pretty rigorously. Before I enter a game, I watch the dealer's hand and keep track of the outcome. How many 17s, 18s, 19s, 20s, 21s, and breaking hands. Before table entry, you pretty much need to do this in your head, but once you sit down, you can use chips to keep track of each outcome. The result is a kind of bar-chart that mathematicians call a "histogram".If you pay attention to this, it will keep you out of bad games. I find that the rigors of doing this also keep me from getting bored during the table selection phase, which is more important than betting or card play.
