I am fairly new to the BJ counting scene with just a couple of months under my belt. My question is on Front Loading (I believe that I am using the right terminology here). An Example..using Single Deck.
Instead of playing a spread of $5-$25 (1-5 spread) with $5 to start the deck, why not lay a $25 bet on the first hand, then move afterwards with a positive count(say to $50-$75)or down with a negative count (to $5). This will give you a 1-10 or 1-15 spread, with the cost being the long term loss on the first $25.
Assuming a 99.5% game with a full deck, you will lose 12.5 cents on each of those $25 bets, compared to 2.5 cents for a single $5 bet......thus...the cost is 10 cents per shuffle (for a $25 start compared to $5). This is only $3-$5 per hour (30-50 shuffles per hour)...and would this enable you to spread 1-15 with alot less heat?????
I ask this question of the more experienced players out there...any Ideas????
