Wish you all a very happy New Year! THe past year saw me scale new heights in blackjack and I have been able to increase my BR by 130 big current max bets. The real increase in big bets is more as at times I had to scale back from 2/3rd of my current max bet to 1/2 of my current max bet. I crossed 100K in cumulative winnings over my 2 years and 650 hrs of BJ, thanks a lot to several APs on this board.
In particular, one masterful BJ player who has been my mentor deserves a lot of credit. He is not very active as a player but for people like me who have benefited from his advice, we all know we have been lucky. I remember the chat session in Dec '08. I do not know if he wishes to reveal but he was all Flash and lightning!
