Re: why is doubling hard 12 working?

You said, "A pit boss who thought I might be counting cards (I wasn't) became convinced that I am an idiot (no argument there) when he saw me double on hard 12."
Reason is, this kind of play will catch up to you very quickly and put you in the poor house. Why don't you double on hard 18 as a lark? You never know, you may get one of the 4 Aces, 4 twos, or 4 threes per deck. Thats 12 cards per deck (72 cards in a 6-deck shoe) that can improve your hand. You could even get lucky and get one of these cards on the next 8 attempts as well!!!!!!
Just remember that anything can happen at the blackjack table in the short term. I've accidentedly hit a hard 20 once only to get an Ace. Do you think I will ever do that again on purpose? I don't think so. Blackjack is a game of probabilities. Ignore the probabilities and you will only increase the casino's edge over you... and to your detrement.
