Users CHAZ2024 Posted September 19, 2012 Users Report Share Posted September 19, 2012 Hi Chaz,You have to have the above play in the context of the entire game. Are there lone tens in the game? Was the last two rounds high? or low? how long are the clumps? Did the first base player stand with a pair of tens? Lots of questions here for sure.What changes have you made and what did you base those changes on?Thanks in advance!JohnHi John, To answer your questions fairly I'll do my best. Of course in any game there always will be a lone wolf "ten" to screw things up. But in most cases the high card tens will be clumped just as Ellis says. I've changed my way of playing blackjack to the new style that Ellis suggests. I've been playing for over 30 years and have had my ups and downs. I along with Ellis have met the infamous Ken Uston. Weuse to meet at the Jockey Club in Vegas and this was the first time I ever heard of team play. Than I met the ringleader of the MIT team Samyon Dukach in the early 90's. There method of team play was almost verbatim in the movie 21. I have mastered probably 3-4 verydifficult counting systems some balanced and some unbalanced. But I think Ellis has the right idea regarding clumping. I have done myown research on clumping and some clumps will go to 10-15 cards in a row. It's amazing that so many cards will clump together. But as Ellis states once the cards have been played for maybe 4+ hours that's the time to enter the game. If first base has two tens I always stay especially if the 3rd base last card is low. The problem with players 2,3,4 & 5 is that when playertwo pulls a ten and the other 3 players have low totals they do not hit. This creates a problem. My answer is when player 2 hits and drawsa ten than the lowest total of the next 2-3 players hits one card only and than everyone stops. But this does not happen too often. Alsowhen 3rd base 2nd card is a ten and the dealer pulls a ten and busts my next bet is always 4 units in the progression. My observation isthat 64% of the time 1st base will get a ten. Any more questions feel free to send a message. chaz2024 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
