    Basic strategy, with flat betting, minimizes your loss, but the house still has the edge. How much depends on the exact rules, but figure about -0.5%. So if you're betting 100 hands of $100 each, your theoretical loss will be $50. However, varaince is large in BJ, so your actual loss (ow win) could be significant.

    Give it time; still plenty of opportunity for the thread to jump the rails.
