I have played countless of rounds of 21. I began working my way into the gambling halls when I was still underage. I have wagered on online chemin de fer, I have counted cards, and worked as part of a team for a little while. Given all that I have still lost all kinds of bankroll at twenty-one. The casinos have made it basically impossible to defeat the house.

I still like the game and gamble on a frequent basis. Over the years I have bet on a type of twenty-one called "The Take it Leave it Method". You definitely will not get loaded with this method or beat the casino, still you will have an abundance of fun. This method is based on the fact that chemin de fer appears to be a match of runs. When you’re on fire your hot, and when you’re not you are NOT!

I bet with basic strategy blackjack. When I lose I wager the lowest amount allowed on the subsequent hand. If I lose again I bet the table minimum on the successive hand again etc. Whenever I win I take the payout paid to me and I bet the initial wager again. If I win this hand I then leave the winnings paid to me and now have double my original bet on the table. If I succeed again I take the winnings paid to me, and if I succeed the next hand I leave it for a total of 4 times my original bet. I continue betting this way "Take it Leave it etc". Once I lose I return the wager back down to the original sum.

I am very disciplined and never back out. It gets very fun at times. If you win a few hands in a row your bets go up very quick. Before you know it you are wagering $100-200/ hand. I have had great runs a couple of times now. I departed a $5 table at the MGM a number of years ago with $750 after 35 mins using this technique! And a couple of weeks ago in Vegas I left a table with $1200!

You have to understand that you can lose a lot faster this way too!. But it really makes the game more thrilling. And you will be aghast at the streaks you see playing this way. Here is a guide of what you would bet if you continue winning at a five dollar table.

Bet $5
Take five dollar paid to you, leave the original 5 dollar bet

Bet $5
Leave $5 paid to you for a total wager of 10 dollar

Wager 10 dollar
Take 10 dollar paid-out to you, leave the original 10 dollar wager

Wager 10 dollar
Leave 10 dollar paid to you for a total wager of $20

Bet $20
Take twenty dollar paid-out to you, leave the original 20 dollar bet

Bet twenty dollar
Leave $20 paid to you for a total wager of 40 dollar

Bet forty dollar
Take forty dollar paid-out to you, leave the initial forty dollar wager

Wager 40 dollar
Leave 40 dollar paid-out to you for a total wager of $80

Wager eighty dollar
Take 80 dollar paid to you, leave the first 80 dollar wager

Wager $80
Leave eighty dollar paid to you for a total bet of $160

Bet 160 dollar
Take $160 paid-out to you, leave the first one hundred and 60 dollar wager

If you departed at this point you would be up $315 !!

It is difficult to go on a run this long, but it often happen. And when it does you mustn’t deviate and lower your wager or the end result won’t be the same.
