Learned to count. I am about 97% accurate. Once in a while I will get distracted especially when I am tired. Problem is I really like gambling too. I like the rollercoaster fun of it, and learning to give that up for counting is really a tough thing.
I feel like when I count, 7 out of 8 shoes run negative and so they are not playable or flat bet. It’s so rare to see a positive shoe where it’s +1 TC or more that I just wonder how hard core counters can just sit there for hours waiting for that one shoe and even then it might not be profitable. All those hours waiting. I really love gambling and I guess that’s something I have to change if I am ever going to get great at counting and using advanced plays.
