Paper betting at a real casino is the best option . That's how I started . Was following as many shoes as I could while standing away from the table and running all the rules in my head to determine the next bet . At first it was intimidating just doing that . Casino speed of the dealer and different dealers. And the watchful eyes of the pit bosses and security . Who every now and then questioned me on what I was doing . Told them , just trying to learn the game for adding up the hands so I don't make a mistake . Did this once a week for 3 hours at a time . Then went home to review my scores and review the manual to see what I have to improve on . Was the best time invested out side of joining BTC.... Then I got more confident in my betting and more relaxed being in the casino in general . Made it much easier for me to sit at the tables when the time came ...

I will make time to get to casino to practice some. Can't do it too much, it's a hour drive one-way. I understand that the RNG are a different beast. Also, I'll try to print out some of the shoes posted, re-write them down blank and play those.

I wont play for real money on-line, but it seems that some of the free play games should be realistic. Yes, No? I've played over 150 shoes on-line and recorded about half of those. They seem to be mostly easy or very difficult. Good practice to learn how to "run like hell" away from the table.

On line with RNG, in practice you will see that is not that difficult to win. BUT, when you go for real money, they just kill you.It is rigged. I learned the hard way, there is no way I play for real any game at an online casino. The only game that is not rigged is Sports Betting, they made the money out of commisions.

1) I think McVince has spoken favorably towards the wizard games, so you might want to PM him

2) Do your self a HUGE favor and go out and buy 8 decks of same colored cards.

- You can do your own shuffle. You do not need a shuffle master

- On the back of many casinos' BAC scorecards, the drawing rules are listed. You do not need to memorize them.

- Get yourself some poker chips, and some spare BAC cards to use.

- Now, turn up all the TVS in your house. Blast some music. shut all the curtains, and remove the clocks from the wall.

- Pour yourself a few stiff drinks. ( pretend they are free)

- Fnally, go out and get your most annoying neighbors to come over and role- play the PitBoss and TheCocktailWaitress.

You are NOW in a position to practice day-and-night, and not have to worry about whether the cards are rigged or not. YOU CONTROL THE SHUFFLE, so YOU can figure out the impact of various shuffle techniques/durations.

And while you know I am dogging you about creating your own set of " casino conditions", I think you get the point.

BUT DO get the cards and chips! Really will improve your decision making and perception of how to turn the card biases or card randomness attributes to your favor.....

Thanks for the ideas. I will reach out to McVince.

Practicing on-line will at least be good practice for bet placement. I need that. I do a bad job of picking one system then things change briefly only to return to what it was at start. By the end it's too late and I've dug the hole deeper.

I don't really have a way of setting up a table at home, too much action around the house. Not practical.

The closest casino has only one table, but the minimum is $5 (except Fri and Sat nights). I could get there and write down a shoe or two from the back and then play a little with a 1,2 progression. That would be good to practice disciple and not cost much. Make the 2 hours in the car worth it.

Absolutely 100% correct. One can learn a lot about "the cards" and the game from dealing shoe after shoe and playing each hand CORRECTLY in your own time frame. This is the way you learn the "WHY" of what you are betting.

When dealing out the game and recording your play, ask yourself WHY you are about to make that wager. If you don't know the answer then STOP and track it down! Eventually every wager you make will have a reason. If you write notes in the margin as you practice, it will help even more on "down the line" as you play.

It's also an excellent way to get completely up to speed on the rules of the game as you'll be the player AND the dealer!
