you hope to improve your skill at Online Blackjack
Games to the point where you can walk up to a Online
Blackjack Games table and always walk away a winner?
No. Absolutely not. You cannot win every day. You
cannot hope to win regularly or steadily. You cannot
hope to win consistently.
you play 400 hands of Online Blackjack Games every
day for six days. Suppose you bet $100 on one hand
every round and have an average advantage of 0.75%.
(This would be a good games!) Your expectation is
to win $300 per day (0.75% times $100 times 400hands),
or $1800 in six days, but you cannot hope to win $300
every day. Your six-day total might be considerably
over or under 51800 - you could very easily end up
a big loser.
that your six-day win just happened to exactly equal
your expected win of $1800. What day-to-day results
would you typically experience getting to this total?
You can get the answer from a table of areas under
the normal curve. Your standard deviation on one hand
is about 1.1 bets. Therefore, your standard deviation
on one day's play is about $2200 (1.1 times $100 times
the square root of 400).
you see that you'll be forced to post the blinds in
two more hold'em hands, you would be correct to raise
all-in with a mediocre hand like A-2 off suit. It's
better to get your money in while you at least hold
an ace than to post it as a blind and risk trying
to survive with whatever weak random hand might show
Although sophisticated opponents know that short-stacked
players must raise with any decent hand, it's still
better to get your last chips in raising than as a
blind. No one may have the cards or desire to play
Sheriff and you have some chance to win without a
showdown. Experts take extra risks to avoid this position.
They'll take their shot raising when they still have
enough chips to be viewed as a threat.
