You say, "Q: How do I know when to go to a more advanced strategy? A: After you are successfully playing in the casino and only lose 1 session out of 8. You must progress slowly. Accuracy is most important when playing."
I agree that accuracy is 'most' important, however, even the best professional player doesn't win 7 out of 8 sessions. The implication here is that if you can't win 7 out of 8 you must be doing something 'wrong'! You need to rethink this FAQ answer. A lot of smart players are viewing your site and when they come across comments such as this they will question the entire site because they know that this is nonsense.
The advantage figures quoted on the web site are 'unrealistic' for today's games. Yes, you might be able to achieve these kinds of percentages if you could find a deeply dealt single deck with the best rules. But, these games 'do not exist' anymore and it is deceptive to use them in advertising a product today. Revere's systems are both valid , although probably not optimal (they haven't been updated in years), and they do come recommended. But I advise players not to believe the advantage figures quoted.
My advise for Rob and for the people that profit from the sale of Revere's products is to pay someone knowledgable to redo the advantage figures that are possible with today's 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 deck games. Blackjack rules are not as good as when L. Revere was alive and penetration is worse. These affect the advantages possible!
Other that that, I wish you good luck with your site.
