Thanks for the kind words, Mission, but I just feel like teaching isn't one of my strong suits. I have trained three people. It happens to be the three people I live with. Two of them, my partner and my brother went pretty smoothly. My brother is smart....much smarter than me and he picked things up very quickly. The one that was a problem, was my other housemate, who I trained 3 years ago. I don't know if it was him or I, but it just did not go smoothly. I would try to explain things and he wouldn't get it. And I would try again and again and he wouldn't get it. And you just can't going over the same thing....the same way, if it isn't registering. You gotta get creative and kind of circle around to a different approach that might register better. I tried hard, but I just felt like I wasn't very good at that. In the end, he didn't even stick with blackjack, but went back to Poker and I had my one really bad year that year, in part because I lost so much time training him that I didn't get in the playing time that I normally do, and in part that just happened to be the one year where Lady Variance didn't smile on me, but instead kicked my butt. So the whole teaching thing left a bad taste in my mouth. When my brother moved in the following spring after graduating college and wanted me to teach him, I was like Oh geez! Thank god it went much more smoothly.
