I signed a contract with a barn company that says that I have to pay it by November first, or else they will charge me like $5000 extra dollars for it. If my calculations are correct, I will be short $100 on November first if there isn’t a second stimulus check. . .
My mother wants to go to the casino while I’m visiting her. . .
I know she’ll give me $100/$150, to gamble. So I have to turn the $100/$150 into $200/$250, to save like $5000. . .
So I have decided on video blackjack. . .
Between now and then I have to memorize and be good at basic strategy which is supposed to be the best probably. . .
I have one fourth of it memorized the following way:
For A-A, always split. For 10-10, always stand. For 9-9, split unless 7, 10, or A-A, for those stand. For 8-8, always split For 7-7, split, unless 8, 9, 10, or A-A, for those hit. For 6-6, split, unless 2,7,8,9,10, or A-A, for those hit. For 5-5, double unless 10, or A-A, for those hit. For 4-4, always hit. For 33, and 2-2, hit unless 3,4,5, or 6, for those split.
Tonight I am going to memorize those even better. . .
I have my betting structure already planned. It is a tad risky, but I think the reward is possible. . . I figure my mom wants to have fun, so I am going to just do minimum bet until she is out of money, or wants to go home. So I will probably have about what I came with by the time she decides she is ready to leave. . .
Then I’m going to ask her to watch me play. . .
If I lose one from the time she starts watching, I am going to bet 2X minimum bet. . . Until I either get my money back, make a profit, or lose it all, I will do 3X, 4X, 5X, in sequence. . . But if there is push, I won’t increase. . . Just for wins and loses, until I am even or profit, lose it all. . .
That’s it. . . I think the randomness of streaks will work in my favor. . . It’s a gamble though. . .
