poker for most people is far more profitable
Im only 25 but I have basically given up on BJ
3 years ago when I was in downtown vegas I was like a kid in a candy store- 2 weeks ago when I was there it was almost worthless. Maybe 2 decent games, but they either have too many people playing or you can only play for a short period of time. Atleast when there were more good games you could bounce around all day without getting caught.
I have played poker professionally for 4 years. While most people can not do it, if you have the disipline ot count cards poker is a breeze.
How much do you need to average 50 dollars an hour at bj in a double deck game? Maybe 50k?
In poker you can play 2/5nl and make 50 an hour with half a brain and really not need more than 10k. The swings will be a lot less. If you play online you can play even more tables.Its just gotten to the point where BJ isnt worth the time or effort anymore for me. i have a great deal of money saved up but i really dont feel like having 50 thousand dollar swings on a semi regular basis with BJ.
I guess if you have a million dollar bankroll you can make more at Bj than poker espeically if you travel outside of the US. Higher stakes poker games are tougher to beat, and with that kind of money its worth leaving the country.
