I thought 22 losses was like a 1 in 4.19 million event! More probable than 1 in 100 million but still not likely.

My mistake, I was looking at the win figure.

Try again: just under 1 in 11,000,000.

1 in 11 MILLION!!!!! that = RIGGED in my book!!!

I had a similar experiance on "Super" vegas casino where the dealer did not bust in 52 hands. Must be well overdue to win the lottery hey?? :lolup:

Wow! two card that is unlucky! Never hit such a bad beat in my whole time gambling. You must be at the far end of the unlucky curve. Good job you were flat betting I would have lost way more.

You had better be careful crossing the road for the next few days mate. :(

Decided to go into the Sands and play a few hands of Bj after this post ( I am a VIP member there and it's one of my favorite casinos) sorry to tell you mate I ended up winning so it looks like you are soaking up the bad luck for the rest of us.

Thats one hell of a losing streak. My worst was 18 with pushes in between. Incidentally i lost 22 units this month at Sands but it was over 350 hands rather than your 22 ;)

I noticed that on hand #446, you didn't hit your multi-card 16 vs dealer 10. With the luck that you were having, i doubt it would have made much difference :)

I am surprise that he had the patience to wait through it! I would have logged off half way through with that kind of nonsense rather than staying to discover how long the losing streak was!

Does Sand of Cabb use OddsOn software?

I noticed that as well but it's one of the very few situations where it doesn't matter very much if you deviate from BS, especially if you have a few cards out there. I dont blame "two card" too much when he is trying to beat such a bad streak.

Stanford Wong's book says to stand on 16 v 10 if the count per deck is >= zero.

It uses Crypto. Cryptologic still has the fairest internet BJ imo and like all internet BJ, it tends to be streaky. I played Crypto BJ regularly for the past 3 years and have seen it swing both ways. Those monthly bonuses are still my bread and butter for income. My largest loss and longest losing streak online have been on Crypto BJ, which maybe is not so surprising since i play it more than any other casino software.

But don't they shuffle the cards after every round? What is the use of counting cards here? Of course it won't change your 22 losing streak either way!

Do you mean >0?

It doesn't matter much anyway and I don't mean to takes anything away from what was an incredible losing streak.

I also count at the tables and from my experience, there is hardly any noticeble difference whether the count is 0 or 1-3. I do try to leave the table when the count is -1 to give myself a bit more assurance and counting does take away some of the boredom of flatbetting and justify the occasional raise in bet (which i seem to lose more than my fair share). Anyway i'm digressing.

"Professional Blackjack" - Stanford Wong -Pi Yee Press - 1994
P.43 - Table 8

Hard 16 v 10

Stand if the count per deck equals or exceeds the number (in this case the number in the table is zero); hit if the count per deck is less than the number.

On hand #446 the count is +2 as this is the first hand of a new shuffle.

I just play as best I can.

count?

I wonder why some of you count on an online casino.
Is this not worthless? Do they not shuffle of each round?

According to the BJ analyzer at

, the expected value of standing is -0.5429, the expected value of hitting is -0.5430, so standing is just a tiny bit better.

What a neat site, GrandMaster. Yes, player had his stuff together.

I read an article a long time ago where a study was done that said if a non counting player would just hit 16 v 10 any time his multi card 16 contained a 4 or a 5, then he would be a bit better than Basic Strategy. A tiny bit.

That makes sense that this particular hand would be very sensitive to 4s and 5s.

If I was the player, I would send those logs to the Wizard of Odds for comment.

Please show the math to get the probability of this happening.
Is it the probabilty of no wins in 24 hands or 22 losers in a row or both ?

What is the probability limit to determine a BJ game is non-random ?
1 in a million - 10 million ??

A non-random game does not always mean a cheating casino - but could be an error in the programming they are not aware of.
