peanybutter Posted May 22, 2013 Report Share Posted May 22, 2013 Hi All,I haven't seen a recent post regarding it, so i decided to create a new thread.I've read the previous threads on ADnet, and as I recall, there were comments by Ellis saying to "use as a last resort". I think the post is almost 2 years old now - so I was just curious: Ellis has your position changed in any way?The reason I ask is:After reviewing the shoes I have played at the local casinos lately, I've started to realize that a lot of the shoes I play, tend to be mixed-type shoes. Where I am located (Calgary), I've noticed that most of the shoes I play are predominately F or S40 biased shoes (I'm only seeing OTB4L about 15-20% of the time). In many cases, they seem to be mixed - in the sense they start off as S40 and switch to F (or vice versa with TT runs added in the odd time). I typically do well enough to get out with a profit, but sometimes, winning just 1 unit sucks (still better than losing 1 unit - I know) when the shoe decides to "switch it up" and throw you a "curve-ball".I find many times the culprits are usually hitting 343 type patterns early enough when playing F or S40 - which seems to occur semi-regularly in the F/S40 shoes I have played. I know OTB4L can beat that pattern, but the rest of the shoe would technically decimate OTB4L with the dominance of 11213-like patterns (usually that's how the shoes start); and like I've seen posted many times by others - switching systems is typically a bad idea!So I went through the old scorecards using the rules for ADN, and found many times, I'm usually up more (or the same) - with less swings in betting and typically hitting my 10+ unit goal much faster than with standard S40 or F. I find I hit both straight runs and ZZ runs much faster than I've seen with OTB4L+ (on an OTB4L shoe of course), especially when you see a 8+iar (straight or ZZ) in the first 12 or so hands. Also with the bet suspension rules, I find it easily avoids the TT runs ADN hates; much faster in most cases than M1/M2/M3 switching in the other systems to avoid their weaknesses.So just curious - is anyone out there using ADN on a more than usual basis vs the other systems? How does it fair for you?Are there any pitfalls I should be concerned about when using this system (other than overlooking the other systems that may give me a better expected return)?Thanks in Advance,PB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
