My Gambling Den 21 Variety Game

I have played millions of hands of chemin de fer. I began sneaking into the gambling halls when I was sixteen. I have wagered on online vingt-et-un, I have counted cards, and worked as part of a team for a short time. Given all that I have still spent all kinds of bankroll at vingt-et-un. The gambling dens have made it almost impossible to beat the house.

I still like the game and play on a frequent basis. Over this time period I have played a type of 21 called "The Take it Leave it Method". You most certainly will not get rich with this method or beat the house, still you will have an abundance of fun. This method is based on the idea that chemin de fer seems to be a game of streaks. When you’re hot your on fire, and when you are not you’re NOT!

I gamble with basic strategy chemin de fer. When I don’t win I wager the lowest amount allowed on the subsequent hand. If I do not win again I bet the table minimum on the next hand again etc. Whenever I win I take the winnings paid to me and I wager the original wager again. If I win this hand I then leave the winnings paid to me and now have double my original bet on the table. If I win again I take the payout paid to me, and if I win the next hand I leave it for a total of four times my original bet. I continue betting this way "Take it Leave it etc". Once I do not win I return the action back down to the original value.

I am very disciplined and never "chicken out". It gets very enjoyable at times. If you win a few hands in sequence your wagers go up very quickly. Before you realize it you are gambling $100-200/ hand. I have had fantastic runs a couple of times now. I departed a $5 table at the Luxor a number of years ago with $750 after 35 minutes using this tactic! And a number of months ago in Sin City I left a game with $1200!

You have to understand that you can relinquish much faster this way too!. But it really makes the game more exciting. And you will be surprised at the runs you see wagering this way. Below is a guide of what you would wager if you continue winning at a five dollar table.

Wager five dollar
Take five dollar paid to you, leave the original five dollar bet

Wager 5 dollar
Leave five dollar paid-out to you for a total wager of ten dollar

Wager 10 dollar
Take $10 paid-out to you, leave the initial ten dollar bet

Wager ten dollar
Leave $10 paid to you for a total bet of twenty dollar

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

Wager 20 dollar
Leave 20 dollar paid-out to you for a total wager of $40

Wager forty dollar
Take 40 dollar paid-out to you, leave the first forty dollar wager

Bet 40 dollar
Leave $40 paid-out to you for a total bet of eighty dollar

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

Bet $80
Leave 80 dollar paid-out to you for a total wager of one hundred and sixty dollar

Bet 160 dollar
Take $160 paid to you, leave the initial $160 bet

If you left at this instance you would be up 315 dollar !!

It’s iffy to go on a run this long, but it often happen. And when it does you mustn’t deviate and lower your bet or the final result will not be the same.
