I have gambled on countless of rounds of twenty-one. I started sneaking into the gambling dens when I was sixteen. I have gambled on online chemin de fer, I have counted cards, and worked as part of a team for a short while. Given all that I have still spent an abundance of cash at 21. The gambling dens have made it very hard to beat the house.

I still like the game and wager on a frequent basis. Over this time period I have gambled on a variation of chemin de fer called "The Take it Leave it Method". You certainly won’t get flush with this method or defeat the casino, nonetheless you will have an abundance of fun. This tactic is founded on the fact that 21 seems to be a game of runs. When you are hot your on fire, and when you are not you’re NOT!

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

I am very strict and do not back out. It gets extremely fun on occasion. If you win a few hands in sequence your wagers go up very quick. Before you realize it you are betting $100-200per hand. I have had fantastic streaks a couple of times now. I left a $5 table at the Luxor a couple of years ago with $750 after 30 minutes using this method! And a few months ago in Macau I left a game with $1200!

You have to understand that you can say good-bye to a great deal faster this way too!. But it really makes the game more exciting. And you will be amazed at the runs you see playing this way. Here is a guide of what you would wager if you continue winning at a 5 dollar game.

Bet five dollar
Take 5 dollar paid-out to you, leave the original 5 dollar bet

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

Wager ten dollar
Take $10 paid-out to you, leave the original 10 dollar wager

Wager ten dollar
Leave 10 dollar paid-out to you for a total bet of 20 dollar

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

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

Bet $40
Take 40 dollar paid to you, leave the initial forty dollar bet

Wager 40 dollar
Leave 40 dollar paid to you for a total wager of 80 dollar

Wager eighty dollar
Take $80 paid-out to you, leave the first $80 bet

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

Wager $160
Take one hundred and sixty dollar paid to you, leave the initial $160 wager

If you departed at this moment you would be up three hundred and fifteen dollars !!

It is difficult to go on a streak this long, but it occasionally happen. And when it does you can’t alter and drop your wager or the end result won’t be the same.
