it is still highly doubtful they would have an accurare rating of thier skills such that they could properly weigh the usual playing advice and their intuition. People simply fail to test all of their intuitions, and recall only the succesful ones, which is not to exclude the possibility that some have more successful intuitions than unsucessful ones to a high degree of statistical significance
I really don't want an argument and I will keep an open mind, but all I am hearing is that sometimes you leave the table at a positive count. In my defense, I just can't see any reason to leave a table where I have finally reached a point that gives me a definite edge over the house.
I would truly appreciate it if you would explain this to me in detail, because I am still learning, and I will give it serious thought. If it is something that you don't want to discuss on an open forum I would gladly except an E-mail.
I absolutely hope that you can convince me on this, because I really believe that it could improve my E.V. considerably to be able to know when I'm going to get killed in those high counts, and when I can take full advatage of them.
You can get the same exact advice from the drunk guy next to you at the tables. The dealer will be happy to chime in agreement with such 'wisdom'.
Here are some other ploppie 'truths':
Bet more when winning, less when losing.
The deuce is the dealer's ace.
Bad players at the table hurt you in the long run.
It doesn't matter if you play a hand 'correctly' or not, you just have to be consistent.
Face follows Ace.
3rd bases play can make or break the table. You have to have a good player at 3rd base.
Other player's jumping in and out of the game ruin the 'flow' of the cards
If you hear anything resembling the above remarks, it is best to just nod your head, and instantly forget anything that was said. It is a shame that such nonsense as 'Money Management' is allowed to be posted on the 'Beginner BJ' page.
