    Hey guys,

    Theres a casino down here that I've had 4 good solid sessions playing 3-4 hours and coming out winning about $500-$2000 every session. I wont disclose the casino for now in public.

    My Bet ranges: $25-$300

    Game: Blacjack DD
    Rules: DAS, split only once when AA, H17, 3:2 BJ, 50-60% penetration, surrender available. Double whenever you want.

    I've been using the KO system. Pretty much i should start with -4 and start betting bigger when it gets to +1. I just start my count at 0 and start betting bigger at +5 to make it easier on my count.

    Anyways, What are some other count systems that would really make me lots of money? I think a lot of times its luck to that im winning because even when your counting, the cards dont fall your way.

    Any advice would be awesome.

    A DD game with surrender?!? Wow. Nice find.

    I've found that you certainly do not need a +5 in any two-deck game.

    I don't use nearly the spread you do, (I play $10 & spread 1 to 5 units), but I start at +3...sometimes at +2 if the deck has lost 2 or 3 fives.

    +3 = $20, +4 = $30 and +5 = $40. I'll go to $50 on +6 or better, but it very-rarely happens.
    I typically look for $5 tables, so that on negative counts I can go to 1/2 unit - $5.
    Obviously, this is much slower than spreading $25 to $300! But I haven't been backed-off or barred in many years...and I still typically grind out a win on most every session, albeit most of them are small wins.

    If you continue to spread that wide on that game, they will eventually bar you. I would strongly advise you to reduce to no more than a 1 to 6 or 1 to 7 spread.
    That can mean increasing your base-unit, or reducing your top-bet, or a combination of the two.
    But if you want that situation to last awhile, I would definitely be less aggressive than you are.
    Good luck!
