Hi, I'm new here and need some help. I've digested Scobelete's book on Speed Count as my 1st foray into being a card counter. Initially had a few resonable wins.
However it was disheartening what I experienced over the course of my last 7 visits. I know long losing streaks do happen and must stop playing when the count turns low. But do I exit when losing hand after hand - at consistently high counts ? I persevered with a few biggish bets whenever the count remained high right to the end of each shoe, but lost them all (BTW fairly good rules).
I got the impression from the book and online card counting advice that all I had to do to give myself a fighting chance was to wait for a high count but didn't realise high counts can be killers too. Your comments please.......how to handle this situation - a horrible shoe despite high counts."
I should also mention the character of an earlier shoe - everyone at my table was winning heaps during my "secret" low counts and when I chipped up at the supposedly right time (high counts), lost a series of bets. I can't help feeling now a little disillusioned. Please someone, help give my confidence a little boost. Thanks.
