CV Blackjack Betting Strategies
Betting in both the Casino Verite Blackjack practice software and
CVData Blackjack simulation software can involve many layers and dimensions
betting - This method allows specification of units and hands played
by true count only and is included for people that don't want to deal
with the more complex screens. It is the method found in other Blackjack
Betting - Here you can create a library of Blackjack betting strategies.
Units and hands per TC are allowed as above. But wonging is added and
the more common types of cover can optionally be added - no increase after
loss, no decrease after win, no change after push, no large increases
or decreases.This is simple cover or camouflage betting
Betting - Here, betting depends on a three dimensional table. The
bet for the current hand depends on the true count, the previous bet and
whether or not you won previous hand. This allows more sophisticated cover.
Hand Status - This is an extension that allows you to add complexity
to the status of the previous hand with a fourth dimension. A two dimensional
table is set up for last hand status depending on whether the count is
high or low and the last hand was a Blackjack, Insurance, Split, Double,
Push, or normal. This allows compromises to cover like 'if I lost the
last hand, and the count is high, I will be allowed to increase the bet
(within constraints of the 3D table) if the previous hand was a split
or DD.' This is something that a typical gambler might do and is an exception
to normal cover.
Betting Strategies - This feature allows you to string together
multiple Basic or Advanced strategies adding yet another dimension. Each
strategy is assigned a section of the shoe. Thus, you can alter your betting
strategy by current penetration.
Based Strategies - This CVData feature allows you to string together
multiple Basic or Advanced strategies with a different dimension. Each
strategy is called into play depending on the current bankroll.
Cover - You can also set individual indexes for each hand total
for Insurance bets. That is, you can set different indexes for BJ, 20,
and 16 against an Ace.
Errors - After all of the above is taken into account, CVData can
also be set to generate errors at a specified rate to simulate the damage
caused by betting errors.
Of course you can ignore all the complexity and just use simple betting.
But, ridiculously complex cover can be supported. Also, the same strategies
can be used for both practice in CVBJ and simulation in CVData assuring
that you are practicing the same strategies that you have simmed. Note:
CVData runs just as quickly using all of the above methods at once as
it does with Simple Betting.
Note: Blackjack Betting Strategies that do not take into account past
seen cards do not work.
