PS DS is OK

"You're no more than 55% favorite to beat any one casino during any one session. If you make it a crusade to stay until you beat them all (you can't, no matter how much you want to, anyway), you're making a bad mistake"
This is an absolutely valid statement. Don Schlesinger goes on to say that himself he's won 62% of all his playing sessions ie 62% of the times he ever played BJ in casino, he cashed more chips out than he bought in for. DS further acknowledges that he's "been a little lucky!". Where is the fault in all this? He refers to sessions. If he was to keep track of all the money he ever put into action in BJ, he'd still come up with a winning percentage around 2%.
There may well be mistakes in Blackjack Attack; I mean DS already sent out a page with Errata! But so far, no errors beside typos have been identified. All joking aside, this is an extremely helpful BJ text with tremendous insight into the finer points of the game. Personally, it has helped me a great deal.
