# Beginner: Using the Score Card...

## Recommended Posts

For my own reference and for those who may be interested... to enhance your learning of the Ellis' NOR System...

- do correct me if I'm wrong and will be constantly updated until I've refined my understanding... good feedback is useful! :-)

Here goes...

At the beginning… Observe a few Hands to determine which System to use (System 40, F or OBT4L)

1. Record Outcome of Hand P or B

3. Record OR Count

4. Join in at the right time or Leave table (unable to determine system / randomised cards)

If you choose to Join game with chosen system Process of Card entry…

1. Enter Bet P or B

2. Enter Result/Outcome of Hand P or B

3. Enter Direction of DIR ‘ + ‘ or ‘ – ‘ :

a. Enter ‘ + ’ if OPosite

(Memory aid: notice Capital O and P, meaning Opposite is Positive)

b. Enter ‘ - ‘ if SaMe

(Memory aid: notice Capitalised 1st and 3rd letter of word SaMe which sounds like SaNe, meaning Same is Negative)

4. Update OR count – take advantage of the DIR column ‘+’ = add one and ‘-‘ = minus one

a. A neater way of writing a Negative number is to use a = - 7

b. A Positive number would have no BAR i.e. 7 = + 7

5. Update Score column S depending on Win / Lose

You can use the same method of recording Negative numbers using the method above – Rarely used… Only if you’re losing! ;-)

6. Access OR Count, Stay with current System or Change System?

7. Access Mode and determine whether to stick-with Same or change (Mode 2 or Mode 3):

a. For System 40 and OBT4L,use 3rd Bet Rule Win / Lose?

i. Win = Stick-with same Mode

ii. Lose = Change Mode

b. For F System, Mode is determined by iar’s (In a Row) on the weak side:

i. F2 = Mode 2 = 3+ iar’s (3 or mores) – Also Default mode at the beginning of game.

ii. F3 = Mode 3 = 2 iar’s (2’s)

8. Go to Step 1 unless Win Goal (depending on Betting Progression used) is reached or Loss of Units = - 8 ;-)

Usefulness of the DIR column?

You can easily see the direction of the OR count…

1. + + + + + = Positive Direction / Use System 40

2. - - - - - - - = Negative Direction / Use F System

3. - - + + - + - + = Oscillating Direction / Use OBT4L

Yes Peter, that is an excellent desription of what you do AFTER you get in the game.

But what is even more important is what you do BEFORE you get in a game.

A thorough table search BEFORE you play will usually land you at the EASIEST table to beat.

You might even find an exploitable table!

Let the suckers jump into the first empty chair they find.

A little time devoted to studying the tote boards goes a looong way

and often jump starts your session.

Walking around and looking for the easiest shoe to beat works well in places lie AC and Vegas.

But what do you do when you are at a casino that only has 2-4 Bac tables? You may be forced

to take the first available seat? Closer to home, Grantville, PA only has 2 tables!

I had asked this before - which AC casinos have the most Bac tables?

Please share... I am still a beginner at applying NOR correctly when money is on the line.

Thank you.

If I start and lose a 123, or even win 1 and then lose a 123, I'm out of there.
