    I been killin it for the last few days at table games

    I will sit down at a singledeck table, and bet two hands when noone else is there.

    Heres what happens almost every time, its uncanny.

    I get dealt a 12 and a 16. Dealer shows a 4. Dealer flips something higher than a 7, then a face card.

    Next two hands I will hit both and get 21 on both. Then a Blackjack and a 20.

    This has been going on for days.

    Winning banking Pai Gow too.

    The key to winning at table games is being fearless, and thinking that you are going to win.

    You are fearless only because you have been on a winning streak, your confidence will disappear as soon as you start losing and turn to anger which will then lead to tilt which will break you of all your winnings but don't worry you will be able to do it all over again and again.....

    I have been looking at some hand histories over the weekend, a player asked me if it was possible to evaluate whether the Legends blackjack (Quantis driven) was square.

    The history is over 3 months and covers just over 100,000 hands during which time the player is slightly up but lost heavily in the last 3 sessions.

    There are some absolutely sick runs (both good and bad) included in the sample but just to give an example there is a series where the player won 14 hands in a row, one where the dealer bust 16 times in 20 hands and where the player hit blackjack, 21 or 20 on 10 consecutive hands. There is also an instance of the player showing 9, 10 or 11 on 7 straight hands, doubling and losing every time.

    When taking the sample as a whole, there is nothing to suggest that the game is not square.

    Fear or lack of it isn't going to be a factor, you will have good streaks and bad streaks but even playing correctly/optimally the house has an edge and the longer you play the more likely it is that you end up losing. You can't win in the long run playing online blackjack.

    Agree on last line, but I think it is just as easy to fail live too. Easier to "color out" online and if those streaks exist say, at Legends, recognize them and increase the bets, unless that throws some sort of switch on. You can't hang around any online BJ game too long. Certain doom. Hit and run and you can live for another day.

    Variance can be absolutely disgusting. Sometimes more likely to lose sanity before lln kicks in even given edge.

    Pai Gow

    I pushed the first 4 hands, dealer makes a comment about how "nothing but pushes"

    LOL I win the next 7 hands in a row, lost one and left

    Last night was banking, got 4 queens with a pair of 5's and didnt have a bonus bet, didnt even win the hand, put 2 5's on top, dealer got Jacks and 8's

    Im running hotter than hell right now, this happens to me every few months

    This is unreal. I sit down at the hand shuffle game right now and win my first 5 hands. 6th hand I get Aces and Deuces and dealer got a straight, push.

    Left. 5 wins and a push.
