When I say every hand I am meaning pretty much every hand until I quit the shoe. Could be 15 hands could be 75 hands - depends. Just want to make that clear.ppppBBppBBBppBBppBBppBBppBBpBBpBBBppBpBBppBBBBpBBBpBBB
But I need a reason to quit just as I need a reason to bet. I start every shoe the same way and generally make up my mind what bet placement to use after about 5 hands. There is no good way to start a shoe. You either win or lose. Occasionally I'll lose 5-7 hands or win 5-7 hands out of the gate but not often. Most of the time I'm either up or down a few units or brake even.
So I was a little bored Sunday and decided to hit the casino. I generally don't play on weekends and as usual there was no seats but just as I planned to leave a seat opened up and I sat. The shoe opened up with ppppB and it put me up 1 unit. I chose my bet placement and the shoe went ppppBBppBBBppBBpp which gave me +11 units. I am betting every hand and not losing more than 1IAR. Tell me why I should quit betting every hand and wait for some trigger or variance. After that the shoe went BBppBBppBBpBBpBBBppBpBB. At one point I won 10 IAR and am now having a very good shoe and then lost 2 IAR for the first time. Next the shoe went ppBBBB and here I quit losing 2 IAR again. I sat and watched pBBBpBBB go by and just left. I made 46 bets. W32 for a 69% WR.
Now. . . obviously if anyone is paying attention that with an overall 52 or 53% WR I get a LOT of shoes that are well below 50%. In those shoes I am NOT making a whole lot of bets and trying to keep my unit losses low. Sure, I could get two shoes IAR where I get a 38% WR. Even though I may only have accumulated 30 bets total in those two shoes that will really knock the hell out of a win %. I also get a lot of shoes that are 47, 48, 49. In those shoes I can still come out a head many times - not always.
Why wouldn't I bet every hand in this shoe?
Point is if I wait for some trigger than how many units might I miss in a shoe like this? Depends on the trigger doesn't it? That's why I use different "triggers" (bet placements).
This shoe is consistent. Could be a whole different kind of shoe but still have uniform consistency and be a great winning shoe.
This is the shoe you've played/observed.
This shoe perfectly fits a general plan I mentioned many times in my posts. Let's say is almost perfect, there's just one losing spot and 24 winnings. You made a lot better than that, congrat!
Let's say is a very deviated situation of what happens most likely by astounding degrees. expecially noticing that:
- There's just one B single and 12 B streaks
- There's just one 3+ P streak and 12 P singles and doubles.
Interesting to notice that such "heavenly" shoe contains a very unlikely sequence of 8 doubles in a row.
I would have just bet a couple of spots here, so you made a very brilliant play winning 46 units.
