    Over at VCT the UNKewl one is taking extraordinary measures to try to describe some blackjack play, but - even when he tries all it proves is that he doesn't play. No detail, bland generic statements, couldn't even remember if he won or lost a session.

    accountinquestion on the UNKewl one: Literally, your story is something anyone who cares enough could figure out via books and reading the internet. While I find your stuff interesting to read, you've never said anything interesting except for some story you told me in private. I believed it but now I wonder if I wasn't just fed bullshit. At the time I thought you were a legitimate person and have taken things from that convo as true. I now believe this was a mistake.

    accountinquestion on the UNKewl one: You on the other hand are not that believable

    accountinquestion nails down how questionable UNKewlJ is: I actually thought you had credibility. I now regret repeating that story to others where I come across as "I have it on good authority" with what is likely a at best 50/50 story.

    Mdawg: So if you're a shoe player, what constitutes a good game vs not a good game?

    Suppose you walk into a casino and no one is at the table but the shoe is half played. Do you ask them to reshuffle the entire shoe?

    How many players at the table constitutes sitting down to play or getting up to leave?

    In our style of play, we always have a fresh deck and can play straight up against the dealer.

    I assume you're talking about Blackjack.

    Really, your questions reminds me again of what a poseur the UNKewl one is with his phony contrived "read in a book" talk about "wonging out" and "counting two tables at once." He's never even got into anything reality-based about what casinos he is playing at that even allow mid shoe entry, because not all do, let alone allow it at a moment that would not arose scrutiny.

    I play at private tables so I no longer have the opportunity to walk into a shoe that was previously played unless it was my own, and since I play double deck almost exclusively, I either always finish up the shoe before leaving the table, or just tell them to shuffle.

    Now, a private Baccarat table they will hold the shoe partly played until I get back, but with Blackjack that sort of thing, especially with double deck, isn't really done.

    The UNKewl one may be dead...really dead! this time. Why else would be be so quiet lately? unless he found a good video poker game again. That is confirmed. He's a video poker player, never has been much of a blackjack player - this is according to the highest source.

    Tater says; 6 decks is unorthodox. 1 or 2 decks are clean and far most consistent.
