    You could make money with a $5 to $50 spread.

    True, but decreasing EV by a factor of 20 isn't my idea of making money.

    With a 5-50 spread you can make more by learning one phrase: "Do you want fries with that?"

    I can understand it but I was thinking he would not want to give them the immediate satisfaction of seeing him leave the table. I would wonder what would happen if he kept winning, even if less rapidly. I have been flatbet but not allowed to spread.

    I stayed, betting $50, until the count dropped, then I left. This was a 6D shoe.

    In NJ, the law requires them to give you a 1:10 spread, unless the flat bet level is $200 or greater.

    As a generality, I’d suggest those out there to sim good rules average pen $25 min against good rules fantastic deck pen with either $5 or $10 min with either $100 or $200 max - by the way, I’ll play that low limit game heads up.

    Then, for shits and giggles, to keep the riff raff off the table, sim (with one player grandfathered in at $10 min, $25 min-$200 max bet good rules 5.5 or better out of 6. You get to spread when you want to your hearts content. I agreed to those terms as well.

    The point is - understand your rules against deck pen against spread equation and your expected dollar return.

    Can you cite where the spread is in the law? I remember being flat bet in AC with them saying what I currently had in the circle was my flat bet amount. I found it odd but it makes more sense now because it exceeded $200. Unfortunately, when I didn't care they realized the count justified the bet and shuffled.

    Not off the top of my head :-)

    I have an AP friend who is an attorney (and I think you know him from the old NEAP days). He's the one who told me about it. I'm sure he's gone through the Gaming statutes. The $200 thing somehow got slipped in there about 5 years ago. Prior to that, they had to give the 1:10 spread, hence the 5-50 placards that every casino has tucked away in the pit.

    Good stuff. I'll let you know if I track it down.
