The sharpshooting is extremely difficult. It takes a long time to get right. No idea what sort of advantage you can get on it, but I've heard of some guys making alot.

Roulette, well most roulette advantage players let a palm computer do the work for them :wink: Variance isn't as high as you'd think. For an advantage player the risk is in getting caught, not losing their BR.

Video Poker is the easiest advantage play out there. Alot of variance, so you need a large bankroll (in relation to bet size). You basically find a machine where the pot is high, and you play VP basic strategy.

Blackjack (card counting). What you do is keep track of the cards that have come out, so then you have an idea of cards still to come. You see the more high cards left in the deck, the better for the player. More high cards= greater chance of dealer bust, greater chance of BJs, and better results of doubling and splitting.

There is plenty of info around the net on card counting.

BTW, the house advantage on BJ in aussie casino's in generally around 0.5% if making plays according to basic strategy (basically a play chart). While shorterm the players always have a good chance of walking away a winner, they are still more likely to lose than win.

Kiwiguy,
I have a book here that may interest you and is called....POKER: A GUARANTEED INCOME FOR LIFE. The first paragraph goes something like this.

" The object of poker is to win maximum money. Poker is not a card game; poker is a game of deception, manipulation and money management. Cards are merely the tools for manipulating opponents and money. From the smallest penny-ante game to the largest table stake game, all money eventually goes to the good player. His key weapons are his mind and a license to use unlimited deception.
In poker, while chance may influence each separate hand, the opportunities ( hands ) are so numerous that chance or "luck" becomes insignificant and success becomes certain. Application of the proper poker concepts assures financial success"

If interested leave your email address here in "long-hand" mate, and don't think your going to read this in 5 minutes as it is A4 sized and about 350 pages to-gether with some VERY interesting photos, and I take it you are in Auckland somewhere.

Far-Canal.

Hi Squirter,
Thanks for that mate but to be honest I'm not really into poker more's the pity it would seem. I used to play years ago with varying success but these days I prefer something where I don't have to think too hard...lol Yes I do live in Auckland, about 10 minutes walk from the casino.

Right.That's it.From now on to all those people that disagree with me,I am going to agree with.
Those lavish Casinos all over the world are figments of my imagination.What they actually are,is Salvation Army Depots.And they just love to give poor misguided souls handouts.

Would that be SAD as in "Mo,SAD",or "Mo,I agree,SAD".
Hey!.How about that!.
The letters S.A.D. actually spell out Salvation Army Depot.
Promise to God and hope to die,that this was not some trickery and skullduggery on my part.
The Vibe is with me.

Maybe you should go the S.A.D moeee. They will look after you and maybe give you a brighter outlook on life. This forum is for suggestions and advice surely? I am well aware that casinos are there to make money but for those that want a bit of harmless fun surely this forum can help suggest ways to help prevent massive losses. There are some that make a profit from gambling. I wonder if you do but presume with your negative attitude that you would be one of the losers. I only asked for advise not a winning system or criticism. You are not obliged to read the thread or comment on it. Concentrate on something you THINK you know something about. Most people lose at gambling whether it be casino games, sports betting or horse racing. The casino is just a betting medium I prefer to concentrate on at the moment.

Yes I am suffering with depression.
Yes I am addicted to Gambling.
Yes I am an alcaholic.
Yes.Yes.Yes.
You want fun Kiwiguy,buy a playstation.
Going to Casino everyday,on your own,is not amusement.
I do the same ******** myself.Except my Casino is the local TAB.And my days are evenings.
I'm not proud of it and certainly do not justify it or promote it.
I realize now,that I am taking out my frustrations on other poor souls caught up in this insatiable appetite that gambling produces.
I apologise for criticizing the way you go about satisfying your gambling hunger and wish you every success in your pursuits.
But just one thing.I might sound like a miserable old soul,but I tell you what,I have more sympathy for you than those who run those lavish Casinos.
