Millionaire School Lesson 3 - Card Counting
March 27, 2009, 04:31:18 PM
Hello!

It's been more than a little while since I was writing here.
My stomach is currently upside down after getting into short term investment again (Gambling with an edge).
As most of you should know, I've had some soul-trouble for the last couple of weeks.
I haven't played anything until two days ago.

I have a performance at the end of this month so I'm producing most of my time now.
I took a month's vacation from work.
I did however want a nice midi-keyboard with touchpads for my performance (I make electronic music) so I set out to make a couple of bucks.
I've been developing a tool for counting cards and during the last two days I've kept on developing it and used it on Ladbrokes Live Dealer Casino.

I started out with $4000 and I've doubled it until today.
My stomach is turned inside-out because I'm unsure if they'll approve the withdrawal.
Withdrawal was approved, which means I made $4000 in 2 days
Pitboss came into the table a couple of times, but I'm hoping things will go smoothly.
I haven't done this kind of heist online before. I didn't go for any high stakes, just placed $80-120 bets when odds were in my favour and $5 bets when they weren't. It's not the best way to do it but I would have had to deposit $15000 to make an optimal earning with the Kelly Criterion.

Ladbrokes hasn't got very good rules and I'm looking for better places.
Some faster casino with better rules.
Negative rules on Ladbrokes are:
  • European - No Hole Card
  • Dealer hits on soft 17
  • One split only
  • Lose all vs. Natural
This puts us at a -0.93% initial edge which means we'll always need 1 extra count compared to normal Vegas Strip rules.
Penetration is only 4 decks with a total play of 8 decks as well...

Upside is the speed and also that they shuffle the decks infront of you while playing, so no waiting for that.

Dublinbet has a very fast blackjack game that plays Basic strategy, you can't make any choices... but this doesn't matter since the highest profit comes from betting when you're at an edge and altering betsize accordingly.
They also has an Early-Payout system which is extremely nice for a cardcounter.
I don't trust them (initially) since I can't make out how the cards are read... I couldn't communicate with the dealer in the demo so I'm not sure it's not a recording actually.
The camera zooms in a way that makes me very suspicious, it could all be rigged with recordings for all I'm concerned.

After checking them out for real the verdict is that Dublinbet is 100% safe

I'm not about to release the program just yet.
You now enter the cards you see using the numpad on the keyboard, actions are now based on Stanford Wong's Halves counting system. Insurance is suggested when 10's make up more than 1/3 of the total cards and actions are displayed in the image table. Clicking on one square in the table with display the optimal action according to current count.

I'm working with an exact counter (which goes beyond any counting system) making it about three times as effective as any human ability, since it will calculate every possible outcome and suggest optimal action accordingly.

I've attached an image of the current Beta program I used to double my bankroll in 2 days (about 14 hours of play).

Next step in this lesson will be an explanation of how to count cards using the High/Low system as well as the Halves system.

Your friend, as always...
Alarian

Alarian,

Glad to see you are back, it sounds like a nice program. Just a question, are you gonna release bonus bagging bot first or BJ? Having bonus bagging bot first, we could go step by step..

By the way, I am also a musician, piano player  ;)

Rushmore casino has a $1000 blackjack bonus which is bagged in 75000 hands... This takes a while but you'll bag a nice $600 bonus from it.

I am reading the terms and conditions:

"5.- This is a Play Bonus - the bonus credits are for wagering purpose only, and only winnings from the bonus (and not the bonus itself) may be cashed out. At the time of a cashout the amount of the bonus will be deducted from the balance."

Means, ... It can't be done?

Yeah guys, It seems to me that we are a bit late for bonus bagging..Number six, I was going to buy the bot, but after reading many casino's terms and conditions, I think I will wait till alarian is back to ask him.

Lets hope he is back soon and gives some light here.

to be honest lads with cards i think a poker bot is the answer and a group or syndicate of trustworthy mates with a shared pot sitting at the same table each running theyre bots. . .  against a couple of live players. . .   share the profits after raping the live players. . .  anyone else tried this ?? this is just my view on how to cheat poker online- i havent tried it yet but i cant think of any other better way!!

ps i think alarian has given up the ghost
