Team Play Blackjack

Hello there. I’m seeking a group of 6 people who would be interested in meeting in vegas and playing team blackjack at a 25-5000 table which can be found at ceasears, Bellagio, planet Hollywood, mirage, cosmo, and mandalay bay. If 4 or more hands lose, we’d bet \$50 and so on until at least 4 out of 6 hands win. We continue this for 1 shoe and then leave on a table win. After this, we divide the profits evenly.

Based on my calculations we’d get about 16 hands in for 6 players. Playing basic strategy gives us a lose rate of 51 percent. .51^8= 0.45 percent chance of losing the bankroll for one person. This is divided out over 6 people for a 0.076 percent chance of losing the bankroll as a group.

Comment below and privately we can share contact info.

Doc, you're on the wrong site for this. This is a forum for people who play the game with an advantage. What you're suggesting isn't going to win you any money, and most of the people here know that.

oh i thought this was the general forum, not the advantage play. But sure it will, I included math. I'd take expected value to be 12 a hand

This IS the general forum, but what I'm explaining is that you aren't going to find your teammates here. The people here know that you can't gain an advantage at a negative-edge game by employing a betting strategy. Basically, what you're suggesting is how to weave straw into gold, and you aren't going to get any takers here.

Don

P.S. A favor: PLEASE don't explain the math to us!

I'm not flipping an advatage. the house remains with an edge even with basic strategy. What i'm saying is the dealer won't beat 6 players with a vegas range of 25-5000 table . Its a simple (.51^8)/6. 1 player may get creamed with a martingale (.0045 or .45% chance), but that's why we divy it up against 6 the odds go down to .00076 or .076% chance. If organized, we can beat the casinos and at least pay for our trip.

Don - if you're putting together a team for this, I'm in.

Doc - you obviously don't know who you are conversing with. Don has written THE book on modern blackjack math. And you are wrong.

Ok. I'm on your side. You could do this. A bloke calling himself Norman Leigh did something similar with the game of Roulette circa 1970 and in the South of France as I recall. His approach involved a biased wheel system-whereby the betting structure would automatically expose and thereby exploit any biased wheels. His purportedly successful Mushroom Gang was eventually shut down by the casino gambling authorities. He details his exploits in a book he titled, Thirteen Against the Bank. I'm sure you can locate a copy in an online used bookstore. However, be careful and judicious of who you choose for your recruits! Leigh was not and it proved to be his downfall. And while on the subject of gambling systems, have you ever heard of Parrando's Paradox?

Perhaps I should find Don's book on amazon just in case my math is incorrect. Don't want to lose money, looking to make money. But I ran the numbers here, and even showed it.

I've seen roulette ruin people with lots of straight reds or lots of straight evens etc. I wouldn't touch that, especially with the triple 0's i've been seeing. But i'd love to add you to the facebook group with Blong, Lorenzo and I if you're interested @jabberwocky

Here's a link to the book: https://www.lasvegasadvisor.com/shop...-the-pros-way/
A better price than on amazon.

Bottom line - you can't beat the game (long term) with money management systems, such as progressions. Anything can happen short term.
