    To Wong or not to Wong

    Hey guys, (relatively) new counter here seeking some wonging advice:

    So I practiced counting (BS, Ill18 plus some, etc) for ~6 months before hitting my local shop for the first time just over one month ago with my measley $500 BR. In 48hrs of play in the last month, I've grown my BR to just shy of $2900. I know the variance gods are looking down on me, but I'm wondering if it's best to continue the grind of wonging in at +1-1.5 to reduce ROR or if its safe to start just sitting at the $10 table and playing my $10-60 bet spread from the top of the shoe. For context, my local shop has an 8deck game with a 0.374 house edge

    Thanks.

    Keep wonging in, it's why you have the results.

    If wonging is working for you, and the heat is minimal, then just keep at it. I personally don't do it since I don't feel comfortable doing so. However, between the 2 of us I'm more likely to lose all my money since I'm putting up with horrible counts.

    Good luck to you!

    Wong in/out as much as you can get away with without looking too weird doing it. Depending what your edge is at +1, you might consider waiting until +2 to wong in.

    With only 50 max bets you are over betting your bankroll. Reduce your max bet.

    I’m at $3700 now. Could you recommend a decent bet spread that could keep my ROR less than 20%?

    You should lower your bankroll to $3600 and buy a sim to calculate this yourself if you are serious about counting

    Fair enough. Any software recommendations? I see talk of CVCX a lot in the community.
