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."

I agree!

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.
