My latest trip report

This one was quick and fast. I entered into the high limit room at Fallsview Casino. A young female blackjack dealer finished the new card prep with 6 decks, hand shuffled. I sit at seat 7. Just her and I. Table min $100, max $2,500. I start with $100 flat betting. The cards are softly clumped. More random than clumped, but not purely random. Some sections I played basic strategy. Other rounds I played Tri Point. Hole card reads were not that reliable. Then quickly, I put $6,000 cash on the table and ask for all 12 chips in purple ($500 chips) I start playing a negative progression at a 1-2-3. Then quickly jump to playing a 1-3-4 Neg Prog ($500-$1,500-$2,000)

I make my first capture of 12 purples. At this point the 6 deck shoe is close to the half way point. By the end of that first shoe, I have made 2 captures. Up 24 purples ($12,000). A player watched that shoe sitting at seat 3. It was a No Mid Entry shoe.

Now shoe #2 starts. Now it is a 2 player game. I toss the dealer a purple chip and ask for 5 black chips. I start flat betting black chips. Now her break rate is higher than in shoe #1. I play purples 1-3-4 negative progression. The plays I made had her breaking even more. Now I bet 2-3-4 neg prog. I am winning most times 2 and 3 hands in a row. I make another 12 purple chips capture ($6,000) now up $18,000. By the end of shoe #2, I make another 12 purple chips capture. At the end of shoe #2, I am up $24,000. The pit boss politely tells us this table will now close due to her shift is over and lack of staff. Nice one Mr.Paranoid Pit Boss. I cash out, then go home. I wanted to keep playing that table shoe after shoe. Oh well, only $24,000 profit in 2 shoes. :)

All this and home in time for lunch...Congrats on a very nice win!

I do not play much blackjack, and searched the forum for explanation, so have to ask....what is a Tri Point? And how did you decide when to switch between basic strategy and " Tri Point play"?

Tri point is an exclusive method that we teach in the manuals. In random cards then Tens ratio is close to normal, which is 4 Tens out of 13 cards. Some rounds you might not see a Ten at all. Other rounds you might see 6,7 or more Tens out of 13 cards. Basic strategy does not play those non random rounds best. Based on the Tens ratio I know when to deviate from basic strategy. Some games, I never use Tri point. Some games I play dealer strategy more often. Dealer strategy is playing the same way the dealer does, hitting any hand you have until you arrive at 17 or better or break. Some games going by the hole card and hit card read is very reliable. Every game has different degrees of randomness and non randomness (clumping) different degrees warrants different tools. I will say this. With a lot of study and practice and proper table selection, it is actualy easy to beat this game. You will forever keep learning and getting better.

There is so much I can tell you that I would need a thousand pages to tell you. Next year I will be even better. And the year after and so on. I have been playing and learning this game since I was 27. I am now age 40. It gets more exciting each year!

You can tell the winners and honest players by how many times they admit they lost 
not by how many times they say they won.
