Blackjack Conditions Are The Best Ever - Right Now!


Recommended Posts

Let's start with this: Every trip I make to Vegas I make it a point to play some Downtown Blackjack.

Why? Because in 30 years I've never had a losing session playing Downtown Las Vegas BJ.

Let that thought sit with you a minute.

How many other BJ players can say that? I'll tell you. No one! Not Kenny Uston, not Don Johnson, not the MIT teams, NO ONE!

I hold two other BJ records:

1.) Taj 1: $10,000 in less than a half hour W/O betting more than $200 in front of 250 spectators. And when somebody called that luck I did the exact same thing again 2 weeks later at the very same table: Taj 2 put an end to that argument.

2.) I played full time for 3 years W/O a single losing day. How many can say that? NO ONE! - not even close.

I submit that those BJ records make me the best BJ instructor on this planet - bar none.

Keith, after completely mastering traditional card counting, recognized immediately in 1991 that my brand of BJ is far superior. He often plays with me and helped further develop my way of playing. Later Aegis and Steve would join us.

So OK we are planning a BJ seminar in Las Vegas on Oct 4 and 5. All 3 of us will be there along with other experts.

Why now?

Because right now the BJ conditions are the very best of all time - Better than ever before.

Why?

Back in the '90s the casinos learned that they always won 7 player games the most.

Therefore they simply closed tables until they had all 6 and 7 player games.

Why is this so?

Because Basic Strategy is based on RANDOM cards.

The more players in the game and the longer the cards are played the less random the cards become, the less Basic Strategy works.

In fact, you can play perfect Basic Strategy in a 7 player game and win less than 20% of the hands!

So what has changed?

BJ players quit the game in droves because nobody could win. In their greed, the casinos ruined the game.

Today there aren't nearly enough BJ players to create 7 player games. The average players per game went from 6 to less than 3.

In fact when I played Downtown Las Vegas 2 weeks ago I had my choice of EMPTY tables - both Benions and Golden Nugget.

Recognize that the opposite is also true - The fewer players in the game, the more random the cards are, the better your odds. Your BEST odds are head to head play. Such games had completely disappeared but they are back. Today the average players per table is at an all time low giving you the best odds of all time IF you know what to do.

Therefore in the upcoming seminar:

On day 1, I will teach you traditional card counting.

Most think card counting can only be learned by high IQ Mathematicians. I will teach you a simple change that vastly simplifies and improves the quality of your count. If you can add 1 and subtract 1, you have all of the qualifications necessary. This makes card counting so simple I could teach it to a healthy baboon.

On day 2 I will teach you how to use the count to win!

All card counting gurus agree that card counting gives their players a 1/2% advantage. That's tip money! I will show you how to use card counting to attain a 6% advantage. That is 12 times the advantage that the very best card counters attain.

Look, the opportunity is out there right now. Not just Downtown Las Vegas but in every casino everywhere. Don't let this opportunity pass you by. Let me show you exactly how to beat today's BJ game. It is easier right now than ever before.

Ellis, I agree. Here in Canada at the border, FALLSVIEW CASINO, we never had the luxury of multiple casinos. Just one casino here. During week days and early afternoons, the average player number is around 3 and many empty tables to play head to head.

Right! The worm has definitely turned in our favor everywhere. It is time for a BJ comeback!

So you would only play with the most 3 players at the table?

Good question! I usually play head to head because that produces the best odds but that is not always possible.

Next I'm looking for the newest cards with the fewest players especially one and two deck games preferably two.

I can't control other players getting into the game but that causes me to keep one foot on the floor ready to go.

New players usually don't stay long and I can often wait them out.

I'll only sit down with 3 players already in the game in 2 deck and only as a last resort but again with one foot on the floor.

The reason being that 2 deck or 1 deck cannot be clumped up much with only 3 players.

If the casino doesn't offer 1 or 2 deck, what do you think is the next best for head to head 3rd base? 6 or 8 deck?

My casino has only 6 in the high limit room which doesn't get much action. But the main pit has only 8 which gets more action. So 6 deck played less or 8 deck played more?

I would play the 8 deck but I would play NBJ First Base which is designed for clumped cards. That is the system I used to make $10,000 in a half hour twice W/O betting over $200 or under $100 at the Taj. Both times were on Saturday afternoon when the cards have seen a lot of play.

10K in a half hour with $200 max... that's incredible, Ellis. So when you play 1st base head to head - do you still keep track of all the prior cards, or just go by the last Key card?

At first base I'm going by the last 3 cards dealt in the prior round, particularly the last card dealt. If I'm seeing tens I bet high. If not I bet low.

Because, the next card to be dealt is MY first card. When it's a 10 my odds go up to 74% at that point.

I know side bets are sucker bets designed to make the casino more money... And we don't even mess around with them.

But what about the lucky lady side bet at first base? We are betting high for a good hand. Aiming for 20s. Any 20 combo pays 4 to 1. And more if they match. Do you think it's worth throwing a little extra on there when we bet high?

Did not want to start a new thread, and wasn't sure where to post this update...

I just wanted to tell anyone interested in making money at BJ, Double-Deck hand shuffled has been treating me very well lately!

You just have to understand basic strategy, and the concept of " clumping" and you are good to go!

I learned about " clumping" at one of The BTC forum's blackjack seminars several years ago, and anyone wants to brush up on basic strategy, most casino gift shops sell a little card ( the size of a credit card) the casino will even let you bring to the table for reference!

Clumping is extremely real, and relevant in this game.

You can learn how to profit from it in 5 minutes, and with a little practice you will have it down pat with very little practice...

Every dealer knows what it is, every casino understands that it happens, but because such a small fraction of the players have any clue, it flies right under the radar.

Keith, you should most definitely offer up a seminar on this one!

Good luck to all of you.

Kevin

No way to know, but I sincerely hope Hammy did not end up on the receiving end of a Louisville Slugger, whether wood or aluminum...honestly think he was just trying to evaluate the merits of the forum, albeit in a way which got a lot of us " riled up"

No need for complicated NBJ rules, regs...or even WCBJ in this simple scenario

Best is you sit at First Base, or Third as Plan B

Get yourself a Basic Strategy card, and when it's " on" , switch to CLUMPING as your play of choice...

Think you know my intent is NOT to get involved in teaching, but it's all right here in this BJ Forum.

Yea just gotta do the work. ( Ouch!)

Anybody wants to call me to discuss, 850-687-3128

I'm going to Foxwoods tomorrow and Tuesday to play some blackjack. Even tho they use six or eight decks, the games there have been extremely beatable. I'll post results later this week.

Ok First let me start with my excuses.... lol

My wife and I went down to Foxwoods for an overnight fun/relax get away. We spent time shopping at the new outlet stores, where she picked out a coach purse and I wound up surprising her for our up coming anniversary. So my mind wasn't focused as it usually is on blackjack. I wound up losing my first two games which hasn't happened in a long time. (talking years) Anyway, I also lost more than I should have, due to not testing the waters. So I played slots with the misses and of course found the only machines in the casino that did not hit once in 26 spins! Sheesh, we were supposed to have fun! Well my wife was hitting well on almost every machine and she had a HUGE grin at the nights end. I usually fund her slot play from blackjack winnings but that was not the case this trip.

Now after a great dinner at cedars steakhouse and a good nights sleep, I was ready to check out the one dollar blackjack games in the fox tower. I had seen them the prior day but since we were in the middle of outlet shopping it kinda of left my mind. However the next morning refreshed and alert I went over to the fox tower (which is quite the walk through the outlet center) and found the couple of one (1) dollar blackjack games. There was one guy playing at this table and I asked the dealer what rules were different for this game. she said any bet below $10.00 you had to put up a quarter (25 cents) in a circle that the house took whether you won or lost the bet. In fact they take it after your bet but before they deal. I promptly bought in and as I was getting chips another guy sits down and buys in. The original player leaves, saying he liked to play this game head to head. He was up a couple of hundred dollars. (not bad for a dollar game) I took the first base position and started to play. Well it was almost a perfect first base game, or maybe it was a perfect first base game. The minimum bet was one dollar and max was 500.00 dollars! I started and stayed with a dollar small bet and started with a green as my big bet. On the first two shoes I did not lose a single high bet! In fact the player told me I should always play the green chips, because when ever I play that color I ALWAYS get either twenty or twenty one! The third shoe saw me finally lose a high bet, however I did win 8 out of ten. I quit after the third shoe, I recovered from the prior days stupidity and the game started getting players looking and finally entering. I did not want to take a great comeback and push it as I did the day before.

Well, this is an opportunity that is begging to be exploited. I do not know how long they will keep the 1 to 500 spread. I know people play first with no rent or a 1 to 5 spread. However, in the morning time, with new cards around 8am it presents itself as a good opportunity. I wish I had more free time to go back a couple of more mornings, however I am two hours away and that is an early start for me.

Good Luck All!

You know Blackjack Conditions at Hollywood casino in Grantville PA are great too. First Base BJ plays the best from first or second. Honestly the 10s are very predictable and short consistent clumps of 5 or 6 long. I have won the last three sessions playing a 1 low bet 2 high bet at first very low risk and short bank.

KS

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.

# 1 is nothing spectacular.

#2 is a statistical impossibility. You are more likely to get struck by lightning and an asteroid concurrently.

I submit those records make you the most dangerous BJ instructor on the planet.

1. I think to win $10k betting $200 max in a short time frame is either a lot of luck or a lot of skill. I think it is a good result.

2. Seems highly unlikely but the idea was table selection was used and playing at same casino every day with same cards maybe you could pick the techniques needed.
