We are only going to address one of these flaws here but it happens to also be the root cause of many flaws.The BS Mathematicians failed to consider the overall effect of BS on the game. The overall effect is that BS itself causes the dealer to get better than average hands which, in turn causes the players to get worse than average hands overall. If you play much BJ, you have probably noticed this yourself because it is very obvious in almost any BJ game.How and why does this happen? It is really quite simple: The game itself clumps up the cards being dealt into clumps of all low or mostly low and then all high or mostly high. And the longer the cards are played the more they clump. We know exactly why this happens but the reason is not important for our purposes here. Consider what happens in a low card clump: The dealer usually gets a low up card and you usually end up with a 3 or 4 card stiff hand (12 to 16). BS tells you not to hit. This means you are betting the dealer will break! BUT, the dealer can't break in a low card run. This leaves you betting the dealer will break precisely when she can't break. Yet that is precisely what BS tells you to do. Worse yet. you couldn't have broke either. You should have hit. See, BS does not consider clumping but it is a fact of life caused by the dealer's presentation routine, particularly her card pickup routine. Please excuse me for always calling the dealer "her" throughout this manual. It is just a time saving device.There is only ONE exception where the dealer can break in a low card clump: When she is unlucky enough to arrive at 16 and draw a 6. That's it. But then how many unlucky dealers do you know???The net effect of this BS flaw is it leaves too many dealer favorable low cards in the game. This is no small thing: It causes the dealer's average hand to go from a mathematical 18.2 to a real world 19.2. THAT is what you are really up against. That causes a major problem with your entire BS chart. But let me give you a practical example of just how great this flaw is:What do you do with a pair of 8s? You always split because that is what BS told you to do, right? What are you hoping for? Two 18s, right? Where are you going with that when the avg. dealer hand is 19.2? And now you've bet twice as much money haven't you - on a hand you are most likely to lose. See the problem?And you thought it was you - that you were playing under some sort of black cloud. It is not you. It is flawed mathematics.OK, now lets look at the other side of the coin. What happens in a high card clump? The dealer doesn't break there either - she doesn't hit.All of BS is based on the flawed assumption that the dealer will break one out of 3.57 hands. You've played the game! Does the dealer break one out of 3.5 hands when you play? I rest my case. And on a Saturday night in a crowded casino in a 7 player game, you are lucky if the dealer breaks at all, aren't you. Brings back some memories doesn't it?Look, I could go through all the mathematics for you. After all, I'm a retired College Mathematics Professor. BUT I don't think I have to, do I. You play the game! You already know I'm telling you the real world truth. Besides, the math is boring.The bottom line is this: The way we play the game, BS, actually helps the dealer. The dealer seems incredibly lucky. It's not luck. It's plain old 5th grade Math. Sorry to depress you with the real world. Now let me bring you back out of the doldrums! Here comes the Obvious question:IF the way we play helps the dealer, is there a way we could play that hurts the dealer??? Absolutely! All the players at your table need to know how to do it. Hence, BTC Team Play Blackjack. That is the subject of this manual. I'm going to show you exactly how to do this and as you will soon see, it is incredibly simple.Sign up for the TEam Play Blackjack Seminar in Vegas on August 25th.
