    ... was just wondering.. I know what you expect to loose playing optimal strategy, but I don't know what percentage of actual hands you expect to loose in blackjack as it is played at eg. microgaming and bossmedia playing optimal strategy....

    Anyone?

    I'm no mathematician but I guess the precise answer varies according to the software rules you are playing, but that variation is negligible.

    I play Atlantic City at MG, the approximate expectations on each hand are, a win 43% , push 9% and lose 48%. If pushes are ignored then you expect to win about 47.5% of the hands decided and lose 52.5%. Therefore in any 100 hands you should lose 5 on average or 5%.

    I believe you would do marginally better at BM because for a start you can double 'soft' hands.

    Probability of net win = 43.31%
    Probability of tie = 8.80%
    Probability of net loss = 47.89%
    This is for standard AC rules.

    My statistics are
    Probability of net win = 43.6%
    Probability of tie = 8.6%
    Probability of net loss = 47.8%.

    To answer the question - "Pretty much all of them" ;)

    I have no luck whatsoever playing Blackjack these days, even following basic strategy. It's a game I much prefer to play in person and find it a bit boring online.
