Retro Report #11 Dec. 2012

Once again, I am declaring Revel as the place where variance went to die…

Was playing blackjack this morning – lost 3 hands in a row, pushed, then won a hand then lost 4 in a row, pushed a hand, then lost 6 in a row – down appx. $1500
Left the table
Next session – won the first hand then lost the next 5 hands, including a $300 hand that turned into an $1800 as follows:

Dealer: 5,x
Me: 6,6
split
6,6,6,
split
6,6,6,6
hand 1: 6,4 (double) dealt 5=15
hand 2: 6,A (double) dealt 10=17
hand 3: 6,5 (double) dealt 4=15 (4 hands max on splits)
hand 4: 6,5 (double) dealt 7=18

dealer has 6
turns over 2
deals herself 2
deals herself K

BOOM
loss

now down from two sessions

Third session:

lost first 6 hands (3 hands I had 19, 1 hand I busted, 2 hands dealer pulled 21 to my 20)

now down with no relief in sight!!!

——-

stopped at Bally’s for a mini-session before – hit for a quick $530 (would’ve been $730 had the guy at first base who stated “I always split 9’s against a 4 but, this time I will be happy just taking my money” (famous last words as we all lost to the dealer drawing to 21) LOL

——-

Sat down and won the first two hands (dealer busted)
Third hand doubled a 9 versus a 5 and lost when I was only dealt a deuce
Went back and forth the next few hands – nothing to write home about
ended up +500 for the session

——-

Just got utterly destroyed

In one shoe I lost 20 of 25 hands
on 13 of those 20 hands, I had 19 or better
also lost 3 doubles and 1 split

——-

Just played for an hour got back 1k
crrrrrrrrrrrazy swings of variance

Well this weekend continued a horrific last few weeks at the tables

The following run of five consecutive hands summarizes it quite well:

Me: K,K
Dealer: 5,6,Q

Me: 10,8
Dealer: 10, 2, A, A, A, 6

Me: 10, 6, 4
Dealer: 7, 2, 3, 3, A, 5

Me: J, 10
Dealer: Blackjack

Me: J, 9
Dealer: Blackjack

After this past weekend, all winning for the year are gone – ended the year even
