Year in review BTC and looking forward

Recommended Posts


Thanks for all of your support over the past year. I would be remiss if I did not mention that foremost I cannot thank all of you who have contributed to the cause as private members and also as advocates for our forum and the development of new ideas.  Of particular note many who post and offer their opinions and guidance we all take for granted at times.  To the long time members CT70, Way2Fast, McVince, Avion, TrainerGrif,  XDotNet, Kachatz1, Avion (I know I will edit this with people missed)  but know that I do appreciate what you have done for the site, and it is because of your efforts that we continue to exist.  Yes and let’s not forget Mike whose endless dedication trying to make the Stats For Profits interface the best it can be and help players everywhere was invaluable.  And by the way, Mike has not taken or made one single dime for all his efforts. 

I have been fortunate to meet so many of you in person and to know you personally.  It has always been a pleasure. I am deeply humbled that you have stuck through all this changed and your confidence that we can make this the place to be for gaming information is truly inspirational. Here are some of the changes that we made this year and also what we look to for the future.  If we should go in any direction that you feel is important, please take a moment to respond to this thread and let us know.

  • Reorganized the forum from a system seller forum to a club format where the opinions and insights of all level of players are valued, considered and thought out.
  • Change the overall philosophy from trying to find a “Holy Grail” approach to a strategic continuous improvement strategy.
  • Added a web interface (Stats For Profits) for shoe analysis and continue to build out Bet selection, System selection, and display features. Upgraded from Vbulletin to Ipboard
  • Added a Download section where others can upload and download any system they want to be analyzed in a quickly organized form.  Files include Manuals, Videos, and Spreadsheets.
  • Significantly reduced the costs to obtain the collective information from thousands of dollars to $49.95 a month for all information without a contract.
  • Moderated the signup to improve and lock out spammers
  • Due to an involvement of many players significantly improved the win rate of some legacy approaches such as SAP, 221, etc.  The Subject Matter Expert approach has increased the accuracy of many legacy approaches and encouraged and evolved into new ones developed by our players.
  • Improved the feel of the forum so that all opinions and questions are valued and respected.
  • Offered FREE  play sessions in Florida, Las Vegas, Bethlehem and other areas of the country.
  • Activated Twitter, Facebook and YouTube Channels for reference information.

    Looking forward
  • We will continue to offer the best unbiased information on how to Beat The Casino and what is working for us and what isn’t.
  • Expand the Game selection to include other table games such as Blackjack and Roulette.
  • Look for ways to market to more players to insure we have a diverse cross section of players from all levels of experience to contribute
  • Expand the Stats For Profit Interface to make it more user-friendly and beneficial not only to the professional player but the casual player.
  • Continue to offer Get Togethers online and in person for real-time discussion.
  • Organize a National Meeting of the Minds for all of us to attend.
  • Encourage the development of New Approaches by any who care to try.
  • Look to make strategic alliances with members for system development in addition to external competitors for the benefit of all.

Keith,Mike and ALL OTHERS who participate, from all over the world, across time zones and continents.

The proverbial "corner has been turned", and 2017 will be an excellent opportunity for all BTC members to seize upon the " profit possibilities"





by , and among, our membership

Especially to Keith and Mike for keeping the site fresh, energetic and a place where players from all levels can learn, share and prosper, wishing you and your families all the best in 2017 and beyond!

Y.O.U. keep us coming back for more...

Echoing Kachatz' remarks.  I am as optimistic as I have ever been about my game and this forum.  I really meant it when I said that although most of us have not met each other personally, we are a unified team with one goal in mind. 

Let's make 2017 the best year for:

1. You personally.

2. The forum.

Oh, and here's perhaps a YELLOW BRICK ROAD for success in 2017...just IMHO

Contact all the big on-line betting sites betting sites, whether just sports, or sports + games

Thinking you and Mike  could work  out some cross-functional click-ads, or whatever you call them....am quite certain you would get lots of inquiries about membership...( people with money burning holes in their pockets...)

And, sports betting both very close, and very far different, from casino games betting.

             +, anyone pays for sports picks, costs way more than BTC

Think "hedge-strategy..."

2016 started off great, and then some personal issues of storm damage, auto problems, and then the last part of the year, a huge unexpected surprise.  After 19 years of being single, out of no where, met a lady that I had dated in college 46 years ago, and it was like we picked up right where we left off.  Happy to say we are making plans to be together permanently.  

2017 will be a great year, with more time devoted to winning baccarat, and meeting in person with my brothers here at BTC.  I'm all in, and truly grateful to everyone here.  You are the best of the very best, and don't ever allow yourself to think that you aren't.  Stay humble and carry a big mother-f-ing stick !
