Guest Posted December 4, 2014 Report Share Posted December 4, 2014 Epstein, table jumping is very amateurish.New cards are nearly always beatable with NBJ 3rd base strategy.But you never simply take an empty seat. Study the game a little:This can be done very quickly:Are highs and lows coming out mixed (random) - NBJ 3rd baseOr are the cards coming out in runs of lows and runs of highs (clumped) - NBJ 1st baseIs the dealer breaking 1 in 4 or better?Is the dealer getting too many first card 10s? Normal is 4 in 13.Don't even look at tables that already have 4 or more players.Don't look at tables where 1st and 3rd seats are already taken.First is the first player dealt to. Third is the last player dealt to. All other seats are losers.Is the dealer breaking with a low up? or mostly with a 10 up?Both are OK as long as you play your hand accordingly. Don't use BS to hit. Go by the last cards dealt before your decision.If the last card would have helped your hand, fine, hit or double.But if the last card would have hurt your hand, stand.This includes your own hit cards.This will give you a much better hands won % than BS.Sounds like a lot of headaches to me... I guess it would come naturally after many hours of practice.I would rather take my chances playing poker or Baccarat. Ellis, if I went into my local casino and asked for my own table playing BJ and my base bet was $50. IF I did this a few times and won each time, wouldn't they eventually put me on the barred list?
