then how come i always lose? about a year ago i was playing in a casino and got asked to stop playing bj. i left that casino and called it a day. i havent gone to a casino in almost a year. i play at home everyday. i count, bet according to count, deviate from strategy when neccessary, and i still lose. is it because playing at home is different then casino play? if so, why is that? So recently i started playing a preogression system. and its not like these progression systems mentioned here or on this site. i use martingale often and i win alot more then counting. but i do use another progression system that i will say again isnt on his site and isnt talked about on these boards and i win every time using it. So why not just use that? i always seem to lose more when i count especially in a shorter time period because when the count is high u gotta up your bets. im talking 1-8 spread. so i always lose when i count but when i use a progression system...i always win. any thoughts?
