We were given a rare glimpse into the inner workings of an automatic card shuffler at a Strip hotel during some routine maintenance. Man Shot Dead What if it were 1 on 1? It was basically to thwart card counters. With no breaks for shuffling, the casinos can deal more hands per hour. It also requires a change in playing strategy compared to a game where the dealer stands on soft

These machines continually shuffle together decks, making it impossible to predict what types of cards are left in the shoe. I certainly haven't seen any signs of "CSM's taking over. Are CSMs taking over? I don't think so. Some places seem to be adding them while others are taking them out.
I have been hearing that blackjack is almost dead since I started playing in In my experience every year brings more opportunities so I wouldn't sweat the CSMs.
Every year things change. A great game disappears, but a new opportunity arises. CSMs come and go, but there are so many opportunities for EV in this great country and around the globe! I have more friends making upper 5-figures or 6-figures from card counting than I did 10 years ago, in large part because there are more opportunities for card counting than there were 10 years ago.
I have played blackjack for 30 years all over the country, but never at the Indian Casinos. I have won and lost, and admit to being somewhat of a sore loser. I have come to the conclusion you simply cannot win there. When I sit at a table, eventually everybody ends up disgusted from losing over and over and leave. It seems like know one wins. I wander if there are any former pit bosses from Vegas that work there and through their years of experience can see that something is just not right.
It is uncanny how many blackjacks, aces up in a row that the dealers get. They crack me up when they put on what seems to be an act that they are so suprised by all their blackjacks, standing 20's, and hitting and not busting. I wish I had kept statistics on the percentage of hands I win. What I am sure of is that I can play hands and maybe win three hands in a row during that stretch of playing. I can play 50 hands and never see a two-card 20 until the dealer has the samething.
It does not matter if I am playing at a table with six decks or tables where they re-shuffle once they get through about two decks. We just seem to lose and lose and lose.
I want to repeat that I am a very experienced player, aware of bad streaks and the possibility of losing 10,15 or more hands in a row. But this is rediculous. I wrote the gaming commission, but I am already aware of the setup in Oklahoma and know it will fall upon deaf ears. Could the machines be set up where once 'card-rich' hands that lean towards the house began to be shuffled into the machines in away that really increase the houses chance of winning.
Nov 2, Threads: May 12th, at 4: Is it possible to rig the shuffler? My knee-jerk answer is "no". It's easy enough for a casino to implement rules to give themselves a higher house edge, that to risk bad publicity and possible loss of their gambling license on a rigged shuffler.
Then again, if it's an Indian casino, even if caught, would they lose their license? Possibly not, which may increase the odds that they actually did it.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. Nov 9, Threads: That is quite an ambitious cheat seems to me.
It is so unlikely, it can not be possible. So even if you had your own technician, he would need to know exactly how the machine worked to be able to alter it.
