Some increase after a losing hand. Others increase
after winning hand. With others, it's a guessing games
as though they’re trying to divine what the
dealer will do in the next hand. My advice is to flat-bet
(bet the same amount) until you’re three bets
ahead of the dealer. If you’re a $10 bettor,
wait until you've won $30 before considering raising
s-our bet. So three is also the keys word for this
idea. Win three bets before you increase. How much
should you increase? For now, consider just 25 percent.
For example, if you’re betting $10, increase
to $13 and try to win three more bets, then increase
another 25 percent (from, $13 to $17). Don't worry
about betting in two colors of chips. Just ask the
dealer to change some $5 chips into $1 chips. We'll
discuss this more in 7.
