question about Blackjack


Recommended Posts

Hello,

When we talk about Baccarat then the unique and of course the more profitable method is NOR and that's ok.

But if we talk about Blackjack there are 3 different methods: " Zero Proximity Blackjack & New Blackjack ", " World Class Blackjack " and " Precision Blackjack ".

So the question is, what of these is the more profitable method for Blackjack (that takes advantage of the theory that the cards are not random after shuffle like Baccarat does). If exists, what is the percentage of advantage that we can expect?

Thanks a lot.

Good questions Danicito! You should start with 0 Prox and NBJ. I think there is still a 2 for 1 sale going on.

First, they are not 3 different BJ strategies. They are levels of the same strategy. Different ways of taking advantage of the same strategy. Just as there are many different books on card counting.

I've been playing this game with a 15% player advantage for 30 years. That is your ultimate goal but you need to get there in steps.

Your first step is to get your hands won percentage up from Basic Strategy's 43% to 50% plus.

Step two is to achieve a 6% Player Advantage.

Step three is to increase your P.A. to 15%.

This can all be accomplished through devotion, study and practice. In fact I have one student today who consistently beats my own 15% P.A. He does this through "table cultivation", a trick similar to our own Team Play method. We will eventually have a manual for Table Cultivation but first, you must learn your Basics.

Casinos insist that they have only a half of a percent advantage over a B.S. player. This does not jive with the fact of the published casino profits of 15% of the buy in money. The casino has only one advantage: when you both break, the dealer wins. But this advantage is huge putting the casino at a real advantage of about 15%. That is what you are really up against.

Let's compare to card counting. Unfortunately, traditional card counting is accepted as the only way the game can be beat. Today about the only people who believe that are in Hollywood. The card counting gurus, none of whom actually play BTW, used to claim a 1/2 % advantage. But when it was pointed out to them that they haven't had a single winner in 20 years, they revised their claim. Now they claim "you can achieve a 1/2 % advantage with perfect card counting coupled with perfect Basic Strategy coupled with good luck." But so far, no one has been that lucky. Let's face it, card counting is a scam, albiet a very well presented scam.

But what if their 1/2% claim were true? What does that actually mean? Well I'll tell you: It means that for every $1000 you bet, you win $5. Ha, it doesn't sound so glorious anymore, does it - so magical? Hell, you and I both tip the waitress more than that, don't we.

So what do these same gurus say about me and NBJ and my 15% P.A.?

Surprisingly they don't dispute it. They can't because because they've seen me play far too often in one public event after another for a total of over 300.

In one of those events I took on 5 card counters. They played one $100 table at the Taj and I played the adjacent table by myself. They all lost their shirts while I won $10,000.

So how do they justify continuing to teach card counting with NBJ out there???

Simple. They say I cheated. They say I cheated by using imperical data.

Fancy words but what do they really mean? See, card counting gurus not only count on you not knowing basic 4th grade math, they also count on you not knowing basic English.

It means I used actual, real life casino data to make my plays rather than their computer generated wishful thinking data. THAT is what they call cheating! The fact that I collected real casino data for two years before I wrote NBJ - they call that cheating. But the fact that Hollywood made movies about card counting makes it real, to them.

I ask you, which would you rather base YOUR real money bets on, Hollywood or real data?

I rest my case.

Thanks Ellis.

what I got at the moment is the next (please correct me if I am wrong) : there are 3 steps to be a professional Blackjack player.

1. 0 Prox and NBJ: (cost $195) the goal is Basic Strategy from 43% to 50%

2. World Class Blackjack (cost $195) the goal is 6% P.A.

3. Precision Blackjack (cost $149.95) the goal is 15% P.A.

Each of these steps will take practice until achieve its goal.

The total cost for the complete course is= $539.95

How much time take to learn and practice the complete course?

Thanks

Close enough. Depends on your starting experience. Do you know Basic Strategy?

Yes I know Basic Strategy very well.

Maybe you can think that it is not the right forum to talk about Blackjack, but I think yes, because I consider myself a good Baccarat player, but when you've played a long time, this becomes a routine and I would like to be profitable in other games too like Blackjack.

Danicito, sorry for the delay. Got tied up.

Since you know BS very well, you want to start with 0 Prox because it shows you how to use what you already know to achieve a much higher P.A. through table selection and many other tricks of the trade and it is a short manual so it gives you your best bang per time spent. You will find that 0 Prox directs you to the most random games where BS has its best hit rate especially from 3rd base. This can get you quickly up to around a 10% PA.

Once you have that going for you then go to NBJ which teaches you when and how to modify BS to beat non random tables.

Then WCB which is a systematic approach to NBJ.

Then PBJ which is NBJ from a different perspective.
