    Beginner

    How do I know when I'm ready for the casino? I've been practicing Hi-Lo for a few months now and I've gotten pretty good at it. I can count a single deck in about 25 seconds on average and I know basic strategy. I'm just not sure on what would be a good indicator of being ready for the real thing.

    Go to the casino just to watch. See if you can keep the count for the table you’re watching. If that seems to go well, then you sit down to play. It will take you a certain amount of time to get used to counting while playing in the casino environment. This amount of time could be measured in hours or weeks.

    Also, your posts are not announcements. Why not post in the General Blackjack Forum?

    Sorry, I keep forgetting to add to the general. Announcements is the first thing I see when posting something. I'll starting posting on general from now on

    If u thunk you’ve learned, try some actual casino play. Keep a small spread. You won’t win much, if at all, but you shouldn’t lose much either. Season yourself. Try to do everything right at the casino that you’re doubg righ5 at home. Keep track of your known errors. Even better, if you know someone who knows what they’re doing, get them to audit your play,
