    Lose it all in high count

    I don't about you guys but when I lose it all it's when the count is high. 4 or five loses in a row with a +4 TC will do the trick. I've had better results going back down to my min bet after winning once in a high count. It's something like this; TC +3, bet 6 units. Win and the TC is still +3, go down to 1 unit the remainder of the shoe. Lose, rebet 6 units. Lose, bet 12 units (assuming count still high)..lose bet 12 units(assuming count still high) Is it possible to simulate this strategy? This is a DD game, playing heads up, 50% pen.

    Extremely dumb idea. Makes no sense at all.

    I like to tie a chicken bone in a knot when that happens. Seems to take care of it.

    It's not online, every casino and card room in my city (there are about 10) have 50% pen on their DD games, min $25. I've learned to only play heads up.

    Cap,

    You can always do what i did.. First, i used CVCX to calculate optimal bets, then with the help of a "Probability Computer" that calculates your overall EV before each round you actually see how accurate your betting is..It really helps to put superstition to the side..And not to mention it sincerly helps the accuracy of your bets...

    50 percent penetration is not a playable game. This has been discussed in this forum.

    Depends on the rule set.

    With a large enough BR and large enough spread it is OK. I'd personally rather play many other things, including shoes with decent pen, first. If they sweat the 50 pen DD, it's not playable.

    Agree.....do not play 50% pen DD unless good rules and big spread and HEADS UP!
    Luck is nothing more than probability taken personally!
