The only predictability is the increase in the probability of clumping of aces to aces, tens to tens, low and mid cards to low and mid cards. That this process is not "totally" random is not to say it is "totally" dependant. Go read the latest edition of Proffesional Blackjack Again! No shuffle was almost as independent in overall results, shoe to next shoe, as regular shuffling was. The sequences preserved by even the most favorable combination of strong bangers and shuffle machines was never over 6 cards in the data my friend from the ____ in Reno gathered, when, in his getting pissed off at being told to ignore cheats and hawk nickle counters, he used the casino's own tracking software, while he worked the sky. Even blocks this large are not enough to overcome the variances in results that come from even minor changes in card order. What he did was use normal card keying to not only detect individual aces or tens, but added some refinements for being able to detect larger blocks. In short he had to use the usual tools to get any different results. He just knew because of verrifying over 2 months, inside the eye in the sky, that sometimes he could key not just one ace or ten, but perhaps a block of 3-4, aces or tens. You folks calling yourselves "clumpers" just try to jump back to Jerry Patterson type Voodoo, now that...well face it: CLUMPS IN CARDS DO NOT-- ABSOLUTELY DO NOT -- GUARANTEE CLUMPS IN RESULTS. They can bring higher profits if you look for them and know how to detect them....
