Re: Raising bet size

You asked how I keep my records. I record each session after it is over and write down the casino, date, number of decks, penetration, loss or win, and time spent in each session to the nearest tenth of an hour. This record is transferred to a loose leaf notebook I keep, and later transferred to a spread sheet on my computer, thus the accuracy of the record to one hundredths.
The loose leaf notebook also contains the different basic strategies for the games I plan to play and a number of articles on the game that I have downloaded from various internet sites, primarily this one and Wong's bj21 site.
While I have recorded a good sized win rate this year, it is important to remember that the year is young and I am obviously on the upside of a big positive fluctuation. I would be ecstatic if I could keep that win rate at those levels throughout the remainder of the year, but I seriously doubt if that will be the case. I will keep plugging away however, and hope that I don't get nailed by too many standard deviations in the other direction.
Although my original post spoke to what I believe is the fallacy of traditional money management methods, I think it is only fair to point out that my average session is about an hour in length. I don't stop a session based on stop losses or win goals though. I move on because I don't want to wear out my welcome at any one casino if I can avoid it.
