My Gambling Den Twenty-one Variety Game

I have enjoyed countless of hands of vingt-et-un. I began working my way into the gambling halls when I was 16. I have bet on online twenty-one, I have counted cards, and worked with a team for a short time. With all that said I have still lost all kinds of cash at twenty-one. The gambling halls have made it very hard to defeat the game.

I still enjoy the game and wager on a regular basis. Over the years I have bet on a variation of 21 called "The Take it Leave it Method". You certainly won’t get flush with this tactic or defeat the casino, still you will have a lot of fun. This method is built on the idea that chemin de fer seems to be a game of runs. When you’re on fire your hot, and when you are not you are NOT!

I gamble with basic strategy chemin de fer. When I lose I wager the table minimum on the subsequent hand. If I don’t win again I wager the table minimum on the next hand again etc. Whenever I profit I take the payout paid to me and I wager the original bet again. If I win this hand I then keep in play the winnings paid to me and now have double my original wager on the table. If I succeed again I take the winnings paid to me, and if I succeed the next hand I leave it for a total of 4 times my original wager. I keep wagering this way "Take it Leave it etc". Once I lose I lower the wager back down to the original sum.

I am very disciplined and do not "chicken out". It gets very enjoyable sometimes. If you succeed at a few hands in a row your bets go up very quick. Before you realize it you are betting $100-200per hand. I have had great runs a number of times now. I left a $5 table at the Palms a number of years ago with $750 after 45 mins using this tactic! And a number of months ago in Sin City I left a table with $1200!

You have to understand that you can relinquish a lot faster this way too!. But it really makes the game more exciting. And you will be astonished at the runs you see betting this way. Here is a guide of what you would wager if you kept winning at a 5 dollar game.

Bet $5
Take $5 paid-out to you, leave the first five dollar wager

Bet $5
Leave 5 dollar paid to you for a total bet of ten dollar

Wager $10
Take $10 paid to you, leave the original 10 dollar bet

Bet 10 dollar
Leave 10 dollar paid-out to you for a total wager of twenty dollar

Bet 20 dollar
Take 20 dollar paid to you, leave the original twenty dollar wager

Wager $20
Leave 20 dollar paid to you for a total bet of $40

Wager forty dollar
Take $40 paid to you, leave the first 40 dollar bet

Bet forty dollar
Leave forty dollar paid to you for a total bet of 80 dollar

Bet $80
Take 80 dollar paid to you, leave the initial 80 dollar bet

Bet 80 dollar
Leave 80 dollar paid to you for a total bet of $160

Wager one hundred and sixty dollar
Take 160 dollar paid-out to you, leave the initial 1 hundred and 60 dollar wager

If you departed at this point you would be up three hundred and 15 dollars !!

It is difficult to go on a run this long, but it occasionally happen. And when it does you mustn’t deviate and drop your bet or the end result won’t be the same.
