Same here.....unless you just like to play BJ for the sake of playing and don't really care if you win a little or lose a little, the only way to make a decent hit is to place relatively large bets (based on your bankroll, personal budget, etc). At this moment, I am on a tear over at Omni. In the first 2 weeks of this month I am up about $10,000. To me, that is an exciting amount of money to win. Generally I buy in for 1K then play 3 hands at $25 each. If I get up significantly, I push my bet to $50 per hand. If I REALLY get up, I push my bets to $100 per hand, just to see what happens for a hand or two. Betting 3 hands at $100 per hand, you can make some serioius money if you hit a winning streak (like I have this month). You just have to recongnize when the streak is over so you don't give most (or all) of it back. I haven't quite mastered that part yet. I've had some nice wins in the past, then ended up giving a significant portion of it back because I got a little greedy.schnozzy said:Personally, I'm a go big or go bust kinda guy.
Played my first BJ game for real money and did pretty well. I just bet a straight unit of 5 dollars and once I got super close to my stop win I quit, 50 bucks for 5 minutes isn't too shabby I think.
