this is a weird blackjack strategy i remember someone telling me once, and I was seeing what you guys thought about it. so the strategy goes like this. pick a starting amount to bet on each hand, lets say you bet X dollars on the first hand. if you lose, on the next hand bet 2X dollars. That way, if you win when betting 2X dollars, you will win enough money to cover the money lost from the first hand when betting X dollars. if you lose the 2X dollar bet, on the 3rd hand, bet 4X...and the 4X dollars will cover the money lost from the first two hands (X on the first hand and 2X on the second hand to total 3X)...As you can see this pattern will continue and as long as you keep doubling the bet from the previous hand if you lost it, and knowing that statistically you will eventually win a hand,this seems like a easy theoretical way to make money from blackjack. once you win a hand though, you HAVE to return to betting X dollars, and repeat the strategy again. why don't people bet like this? why doesn't this work?
