    Black jack: the ropes

    Im new here. I just started playing and im currently reading fortune's formula by william poundstone. It details the mathematical studies of probabilty specific to black jack by the likes of edward thorp. Despite devolping applicable mathematical theories he still had to learn about the casinos and identifying cheaters from mobsters line emmanuel kimmel. Do any of you know how to identify cheaters or how the computerized black machines are vs the dealers?

    Trion welcome to the board.

    Regarding the last sentence that you wrote, this advice from another member, Zee Babar is all you need to know.

    "
    The issue is not convincing people on this forum, the debate cannot take place because the forum administrator does not allow it."

    Here is what the administrator has to say on the matter:

    "
    You are welcome to discuss it -- WHEN YOU HAVE ACTUAL EVIDENCE. None has been provided."

    After further discussion, you may hear this from the moderator:

    "Not when they are potentially libelous. "

    Further explained your own individual evidence is far from proof on this board and will be frowned upon by the moderator/administrator for having a too small of a sample size etc. Bottom line if anyone wants a little leeway in this type of discussion must post it on the Disadvantage Forum board on this site.

    Ignore Bosox. It's unclear what you are looking for.
