    I know, he even posted twice when he said he might not.

    Ok, folks I get it. However I must say that if I am automatically classified as a troll for being a DP player, I find that to be quite a closed-minded view.

    Of course I am going to play differently when losses have occurred in my session and of course I am going to very seriously attempt to recover at least a significant portion of those losses in that session. I am a DP player and that is not going to change.

    Wow. So you guys accept a stop loss in just over half of your sessions? That is quite conservative. I have often considered such an approach with the main advantage being a lower bankroll requirement. Why do you guys do it?

    I am not here to educate anyone but if you folks find it not possible to help me in DP play, I understand. No harm, no foul. I will simply learn what I can when possible.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    It's easy to raise your session winning %...just stop playing the session whenever you get ahead.
    You can also make sure you lose less money during bad sessions by stopping play whenever "it feels like you have lost too much".

    You make money playing BJ by doing the opposite of what you are doing.
    You should never "play differently". You play the same way every day, every session, like a robot.
    What is a DP player?

    I'm thinking that the P must stand for "progression" (what else?!). So, I'm guessing Debilitating Progression.

    Don't you just love it when newbies come here and then lecture us for being close-minded because we can't see the brilliance of their ways?

    Oh, I think you probably mean per "shuffled set of decks"?
    Of the over 7,000 sessions that I have detailed results from we won at about 60% of the SESSIONS. Almost all of those SESSIONS were played with positive counts skewed in our favor (BP call in at True 2) which promoted high variance.
    Luck is nothing more than probability taken personally!

    Makes little sense to talk about what percentage of "sessions" anyone wins without defining how long a session is! Anyway, see BJA3, bottom of page 21, for some guidance.

    My definition is from first hand played until I either quit playing forever or I die. Whichever comes first.

About Blackjack: The Forum

BJTF is an advantage player site based on the principles of comity. That is, civil and considerate behavior for the mutual benefit of all involved. The goal of advantage play is the legal extraction of funds from gaming establishments by gaining a mathematic advantage and developing the skills required to use that advantage. To maximize our success, it is important to understand that we are all on the same side. Personal conflicts simply get in the way of our goals.
