    One simple Question

    OK,

    I have played a lot of Blackjack, Lost more then I care to admit and once in a while have I have had a good night.

    My question is simple

    Given the choice would you play at a table with a 6 deck hand shuffled shoe with a 100$ minimum bet and one other player at the table or would you take a table with an 8 deck hand shuffled shoe with a 25 $ minimum bet and a total of 4 players ?

    The answer is not so simple I think

    Assuming an adequate BR, seems to be a no brainer.

    The answer lies in your bankroll. Can you afford playing a high-limit table as a black chipper?

    Just like this forum to overlook the facts.

    OP: do you count cards?

    If you were a counter with an adequate bankroll, then it isn't possible that you would ask such a question. So, either the $100 game is too rich for your blood, or you aren't counting. If the latter, then clearly, you will lose your money almost seven times as fast at the $100 table than at the $25, so if you MUST play, that also is a no-brainer. Better still, don't play at all!

    The 200$ a hand table is not too rich for me at all ( on special event nights and crowded weekends sometimes those are the only available bets in the high stakes room ) and my average buy in is 5K

    I do not count cards but I do pay attention.

    Thats not what my question is based on, many here have the math to back up their theories, some of what I read leads me to believe that we do not have it right - ok before you start I know its not an exact science. But after sitting at a 100- 200$ per hand table and watch the dealer draw to 7 - yes count them 7 - black jacks in a row - I tend question everything - And this has happened on more than one occasion 7 in a row was the most I have seen.

    The high stakes tables, for the most part, draw a different player - I suppose you could call them more skilled. The 1-25$ a hand tables seem to draw a different crowd ( don't get me wrong I like that crowd also ) But the 3-6 player low stakes 8 deck electronic shuffle tables can get to be a mess - but does that mess contribute to my wins or wreck them?

    When a crowded low stakes table gets on a roll the energy seems to work against the house, its hard to get the energy up at a high stakes table with only 1 other player. Also on the lower stakes tables people,le seem to "jump in " for one or two hands.

    Just some thoughts.

    Just some thoughts.

    1.) If you don't count cards, you won't get "wins".
    2.) What do you mean with "electronic shuffle" tables - ASM or CSM?
    3.) There is no energy rolling or karma at the tables.
    4.) BJ is an exact science. It's pure mathematics.

    Seems to belong to the Disadvantage Forum.
