Record keeping, not so simple! A dilemma!
Three players at a bj table.
Total hands played are 100
First player loses 20 units
Second player loses 20 units
Third player wins 39&1/2 units
House has a net win of 1/2 unit.(as expected)
First player's record shows a loss of 20 units due to variance.
Second player's record shows a loss of 20 units due to variance.
Third player's record shows a win of 39&1/2 units due to variance.
Now replace the three players with one player playing three hands.
His records show a loss of 1/2 unit.
It would seem obvious that the whole table result is the correct one and the individual ones are meaningless.
Are we members on a team whether we like or not?
