Big thanks to Danielle Furois catching me busting never bust at 22:38. Fortunately this take can be salvaged as the card I gave to the player would have been taken by the dealer. Dealer busts and Never bust wins the hand instead of losing. Brings Never Bust up to 47 units, down 3 to end the shoe (from 45, down 5. Give back the erroneously lost unit plus one unit for winning).
Please continue to alert mistakes. Old habits are obviously hard to break.
Not sure what happened to the first few seconds. Just basic table rules as detailed below.
Six-deck heads-up blackjack comparing “never bust” to basic strategy.
Dealer stands on all 17s. No surrender. Blackjack pays 3:2.
One shoes. ~75% penetration.
The “Never Bust” strategy always stands with a hard 12 or greater.
Each strategy plays off its own shoe, which are exact copies of each other (card values only).
For this series I am not going to show the complete shuffle procedure. As exciting as I know it is for you to watch, it’s far less exciting to watch me set up the second shoe as a copy. I hope I have earned your trust that I am not stacking the deck.
Each player starts with 50 chips.
Flat bet player bets 1 chip per hand.
Table minimum: 1 chip. Table Maximum: 100 chips. This would be the equivalent of a $5/$500 table.
You can also use this (and forthcoming future videos) as a representative scenario to test your betting system or card counting.
I am not a pro dealer, so be nice.
