Ask Frank: Craps 5-Count, Video Blackjack

16 November 2003

Dear Frank,

I love your craps book Beat the Craps out of the Casinos. I have a question when using the 5-count. I was playing in Detroit the other day using the 5-count on the 6 and the 8. This seems like a grinding method, but that's okay.

I was wondering should I leave my 6 and 8 placed on the come out roll if I am already to the 5-count and also could you briefly explain the 5-count with consideration to the pass line, because I seemed to miss that in the book. If it is in the book would you point what page it is out to me.

Sincerely,
Robert

Dear Robert,

Play the normal game and keep your bets off. Some people set for the seven on the come out roll.


Frank,

I recently purchased your book Victory at Video Poker, mostly for the section on video blackjack.

I read the section on card counting in BJ and I can't figure out how one can tell when the deck gets shuffled. I've checked out the games at the casinos here in Detroit (I know, but it's all that I've got) and they are like a continuous shuffle game.

What's the catch? Do the "better" video BJ games tell you when the deck is being shuffled or something?

Thanks,
Dave

Dear Dave,

When you read the rules it should tell you if you are playing a single or multiple deck game and how often they shuffle. If the game you are playing doesn't do this then you can figure it's a continuous shuffle game -- and avoid it!

All the best in and out of the casinos!
Frank Scoblete
