SOTSOG & Starfish-Everybody
One chose DD one chose Split- Hoped for more folks but thanks Guys.
The decicion to do either opens the door to DOUBLE losses or worse
in the case of re-splits. The chance of this was ZERO.
The split takes on the odds of drawing further consecutive good cards.
3-1, for two hands, 7-1, for three and 15-l for the max.
Yes there are a few that always seem to get the right card(count they claim) others get trash count or no count.
Many years ago I became aware that my DD or split was running 3-1
against me. Initial changes stopped some of that-and now a lot more.
The BS doesn't show you any of this, and I don't think any body told the computers that losing two bets or more on the same hand was groosley undesirible.
