Another week, another inspiration thanks to the Facebook post. This one is from a friend who posted a blog entry his friend wrote.
The topic has to do with world events and the importance of knowing when to go. Phrases like these undoubtedly draw comparisons to gambling.
More important than knowing when to hit 17 or betting on red is understanding when to go. I read it about a dozen times and ended up just saying, “Huh?”
You can always tell when someone with absolutely no knowledge of gambling tries to use gambling terms to earn points visit LagaPoker. Let’s take a closer look – “when to bet red?”
Is there a better time to bet on red vs betting on black? If the roulette wheel only has 10 blacks now is a good time to bet on red? Are the odds different from before the previous roll?
The red odds are 18 out of 37 (or 38 if two wheels are zero). Roulette doesn’t actually have one side of the board below, so one could argue that you shouldn’t make a bet. However, if you play roulette, the only time not to bet red is after the dealer says, “No more bets.”
Then there’s the “when to hit 17” section. Apart from the gentle 17, the answer will never be. Is this really a question? If you try to hit 17, the dealer will call the pit boss because they will think you are some kind of card counter. So, I guess the writer would be better off saying “when to hit 16.”
Then, I gave it some thought and realized while it was a lot better, it really wouldn’t be an expression you’d want to use either. The rules are pretty straight forward. If the dealer has bust cards (2-6), you stick around and let him bust. If the dealer has a good hand (7-10 / Face or Ace), then you can’t rely on him, and you should take risks and try to improve your hand.
