.., that have a losing year so far for 2002 think about what would have happen if you would have follow my advice all along.
You have to monitor in a close range at all times your progress as follow:
1.How many hands have I won in the last couple of decks? � If I won less then 50% I�ve got to change table!
2. Have I got in any winning streaks? � If not, I�ve got to change table!
3.Did I got big cards on my doubling downs? � If not, I�ve got to change table!
4.Did the dealer got busted more on positive counts? � If not, I�ve got to change table!
5.Who�s busting first? � I or the dealer? � If is me, I�ve got to change table!
6.Did the dealer is showing up big up-cards more that would be normal? � If yes, I�ve got to change table!
7.Did I got the normal ratio of BJs and double downs opportunities? � If not, I�ve got to change table!
8.How often the dealer is making 19s 20s and 21s? � If more then normal, I�ve got to change table!
Counter, Supper Counter or even the best BJ player in the world, you do not win without getting the cards at the key moments. Who cares if the count gets up to +20 and you can bet your MAX without any heat? If you do not get the cards but the dealer is the one who�s getting more then would be normal while beating you most of the time, you have to consider this a deviation from the norm and change table.
Think about of all my questions with honesty and see how would have made a big difference in your financial outcome for the last eight months of this year. I bet you that if you would have follow only 3 of my 8 points from above consistently you would be at least even if not in profit for this year. I, personally use all of them and that�s why I only play about 40 or even less hands per hour. If I stay and play an hour or more at any table is because I am winning more hands then the dealer. Or, even if I win about the same number of hands vs. dealer, then I must be getting big cards on my double downs and splits.
Pay attention at #6 question: �Did the dealer is showing up big up-cards more that would be normal?� This alone can be disastrous for the player! It would produce the most useless busts ever. It is very hard to play against the TEN all the time. It will make you take hit on most of your hands and put some big restrictions on your double downs. The #6 alone has got to be your cardinal guide if you continue playing at that table or if you depart and look for another one.
