any experienced players, please comment on removing any or all of this post

This is mainly for other newbies. According to my spreadsheet I have played 80 hours of BJ almost all at
$1 hand for WR of $68,000 in 17 casinos. (sometimes I play 2-3 hands and sometimes up to $3/ hand)

Amazingly my profit is within 2% of my +EV from the bonuses I have played with.

I finally decided to test my patience and play $1 hand at CON. I keep a continuous detailed log of all my play
and in this case I played about 20 30-minutes sessions. here is a sample of lows and highs in time order.
low = 377 hi = 400
low = 346 hi = 400
low = 323 hi = 348
low = 301 hi = 323
low = 301 hi = 321
low = 283 hi = 315
low = 277 hi = 289

CASHOUT $297

Actually watching this process has made me believe I was exposed to an unfair game.
I presume that my feeling is simply the result of seeing the constant unrelenting
ingenuity of fate in creating a constant loss.

Not sure what the probability is exactly but the probability of not losing eight hands in a row like in your screen shot after playing 50000 hands is extremely remote.

Hi newbie,

Ya know what the word 'con' means, dont ya? Avoid casinos whose initials string up the word CON or those with the prefix 'con' eg in connecto otherwise you can easily get 'conned'.

I deposited 200 bucks here yesterday. Played $2 a hand 3 handed and busted only 1784 into the WR. I lost nearly everyhand and never had a streak over 2.

I put this casino off because I had to deposit using the bank account...20x as opposed to 50x.

After I went busto they send me an email with a 100 dollar bonus offer.

HA yea right I will never be playing there again. Ridiculous.

Yea....a real marketing genius that came up with the name for them. And another real genius that kept using it, let alone accepted it :) What an acronym for a casino!

Could you imagine a vegas casino with an acronym of CON? They'd go bust so fast it isn't funny ;)
