I have an interesting and curious problem- I'm clueless about Vegas and I'm making my first visit next month! So as an update since my last post I finally decided on using the Hi-Lo system on a more long term basis than K-O (Thank you again to Panama Rick for pointing out something that seems so simple- the numbers of syllabals that are said in Hi-Lo versus K-O). I've gotten at least moderately quick at counting down a deck (between 15-20 seconds per with no accuracy problems), and I've memorized the illustrious 18. This last step with the matrixes has been my most recent work and they still aren't second nature, but I'm practicing daily and improving on those.
I'm not a complete rookie in casino play (I've played in a few local Indian casinos with terrible rules before mostly for fun, and I could easily enough keep a count), but I've never been to Vegas. My first trip will, unfortunately, only be for a weekend, but I'm looking forward to a better test for my new skills. I'll have a small bankroll (1000-1500), which I'd prefer to win with, but losing really would only be a minor setback. I'll certainly buy the list of games from the site as the date approaches, but I'd really love some input on attack strategy. I've never had any real options as to games before (all have been 6 deck, DAS, S17, no surrender, basic games + an obnoxious ante and mediocre penetration) and I've never really had a large enough bankroll to make any even real trip plans before (always I had a few hundred bucks and wanted to count for fun). I know with such a small bankroll and my mass inexperience I have a high RoR, but I really would like to start formulating an attack plan with yalls help!
