corollary is that the $2 bettor must get out of the
way when the count is high - perhaps run over to the
crap table every five minutes or so. There is an act
for you - a two-game-playing $2-betting drunk running
between the 21 table and the crap table, while his
Online Blackjack Games-playing partner flat bets $100!
Craps at a crap table has a negative expectation.
For zero-expectation craps, how about a $2 bettor

A reader says: Here is an example of something, that
happened three times. After a sizeable win, my wife
and I divided our chips equally before cashing them
in. When I cashed in $400, the cashier got on the
phone and gave a general description of me. My wife
cashed in $400 and no phone call was made. I think
I should have my wife cash in all the chips.
To evaluate the person you want as a mentor, think
about the following: What limits does he play?
- What is the quality of his competition? What games
does he succeed in?
- If you're interested in tournament mentoring, what
tournaments has he made
- final tables in or won?
- If he's a writer, how well does he communicate?
- What do others think of his writing and teaching
that someone who plays $80-$160 hold'em exclusively,
or only no-limit tournaments, may not necessarily
be your best teacher if you want to learn how to beat
the smaller limits.
