none of my blog readers came by, and one asian guy sat and played for a while flat betting $50 a hand from that one BJ forum, but he had no luck. lost about $1200. (him, not me.) he also told me i should delete my post or the machine would fill up, besides the guy from the forum who called me. (i published my phone number in it before i later deleted the post.) i ended up recovering $510 of yesterdays loss, rolls about $10.900. (also i picked up all my cashback, the $200+ id won last nite but hadnt cashed out yet, (cause i was waiting to be a certified hi roller) and about $369 more i accumulated today in cashback. now im sitting in my room watching tv ready to relax and sleep. i know i couldve continued to do the promo til midnite and most AP guys wouldve, but i didnt feel up to it anymore.
its funny reading all these comments about why i shouldnt play machines, (some of which is probably true since i dont have the right mindset to FLAT BET like everyone encouraged me to do, (even those on blackjackinfo.com where i was posting.) whats funny about it is everyone here claims that NO machines can be beat over the long run, which is a lot different than what people post on video poker and BJ forums. i never know whose right and what to believe, im still trying to find out. now i know a lot of times, that i cannot win money playing certain machines long term, such as certain harrahs and binions ones, yet i play them anyway for who knows what reason. Yet a bunch of people (such as the asian guy who came over from the forum) and the guy who called me on the phone begging me to delete my thread both say the machines beatable with the 101.5% payback on mondays. but some of those guys posting on that forum claim i shouldnt be surprised or think its odd to drop as much as 100 bets. and i dont even know for sure the machines not rigged. whats weird is none of these blog readers think its beatable at all long term, and how everyone from that BJ forum thought i shouldnt post the location of the machine because the one guy in los angeles was looking forward to playing it next monday and he worried the casino was browsing the forum, (a 3rd guy said that in a PM) and he didnt want the promotion GONE or all the seats taken next monday. theres some people who swear these machines are beatable, but they say its not from counting its from the promotion, and i shouldnt bother counting, and they claim the proper way to play is to flat bet 1 150th of my roll.
what difference should it make whether i flat bet or vary the bet a little due to the composition of the cards and the outcome of the previous hand? over the long run, it shouldnt help or hurt no matter whether i vary the bet or not, this is extremely difficult to understand and a very very boring way to play. u could lose a lot of hands in a row, i dont like doing that at all.
