The Maths Behind Blackjack

Simulation work supports discrediting the Kelly Criterion as optimal for any blackjack bettor, regardless of bankroll and trip goals, on any particular gambling trip. Now, some technical discussion about the simulation. This is not the same as betting 1. Using tables 8. For purposes of the rest of us, I have assumed trips to Las Vegas or other gambling Meccas, be they occasional or frequent, are made with a total budget determined at the moment of leaving home. Its replacement is a thing of personal decision. Make the most of those good, positive expectation situations. Again, Leib may draw fire for some of his unorthodox conclusions, but I find his basic idea here appealing. A successful trip projection is an acceptable combination of average win and the probability of disappointing results. But if you wish to really understand proportional betting, and to find your comfort zone as a function of expectation, The Leib Criterion and the accompanying tables should give you what you need. We try to do our bet sizing as some fraction of the current state of the "gambling" partition and our understanding of the expectation on the next hand. The results of the simulation are tabulated in the manner I felt was most easily understood and used. This might provide a truer estimate of the appropriate Kelly bet, since Kelly advises no bet unless there is a player advantage. Do you typically make a half-Kelly bet? The entries show the average final bankroll minus one. You do not want to underestimate your potential table "expenses. Such "chickening out" would be, for those of us who are not full-time professionals, the meaning of "ruin" for that trip, and shall be the meaning of "ruin" for the remainder of this article. But this is not the real world. Back to Blackjack Forum Online Home. Betting double Kelly with the remaining "gambling investment" portion might call for smaller bets than if you were betting full-Kelly based on your total bankroll. Some conservatism may be in order in making this estimate. Now I am going to ask you to perform that ever-popular task: "Meet me half-way. A week? But, what portion of your bankroll do you assign to "gambling expenses? But this includes ties, which add essentially nothing to the variance while appearing to reduce the "risk of ruin" that a particular betting strategy incurs. Find whom you think you are in the tables, and you can see what perfect proportional betting means, both in average trip win and the risk of suffering your definition of ruin. The variance for the outcome of a hand of blackjack is about 1. But it is unlikely that they approach a full Kelly betting fraction. A weekend? Finally, the composite results are presented, reflecting the more typical situation of varying hand-to-hand expectations for head-to-head single-deck play. When I come to Vegas, I bring four thousand. I shall provide you with the information necessary to make that decision. At a loss to tell you what your style of game selection and play will yield, I referred to Dr. Refusing to play in negative situations may be impossible, or bad for camouflage. The "ruin" percentages, however, are likely to be quite accurate.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Where does this leave us? Entries that appear eligible for such reduction in confidence will be more likely to appear for higher Kelly fractions and higher expectations. Proportional betting seems rational. Occasionally you can change tables or go to the rest room when things look bad, but usually you have to play through the bad hands. But even in single-deck games, most of your hands will not be played with the edge in your favor. We all well, most of us have, upon occasion, become so discouraged by poor results in potentially lucrative situations that, with no probabilistic justification for our decision, we stop playing, perhaps even for the remainder of the trip. You probably already have some idea of what kind of bettor you are, assuming you are more or less a proportional bettor. So, even if you use a fairly large spread, a sizeable portion of your total playing bankroll should be assigned to the "gambling expenses" portion of your budget. If you have a "chickening out" level, then high expectation hands pose a greater risk of "ruin" than do low positive expectation hands. John Leib proposed The Leib Criterion. The results shown in each entry presume the entire time will be spent in that positive expectation situation, or in non-positive situations covered by your "betting expense" budget partition. To be proper for you, these must be balanced, one against the other, because more of one necessarily means more of the other. Normally, we consider our total bankroll when estimating our optimal Kelly bet. This new criterion is based on the unquestionable correctness of a fractional bettor wishing to maximize his or her expected average win over a finite number of fixed-expectation wagers, but with the added requirement of limiting the likelihood of finishing the series of wagers "in the red," to no more than about one-half. These are a special class to which I am guessing you do not belong, and to which I shall not presume to give advice. It is unlikely that a second set of random samples would produce values that are "close" to those in the tables. Edward O. This is because the average tends to be dominated by particularly profitable, and quite unlikely, series. The "gambling expense" partition is a logical way to look at the rent for the "office" from which you work, much like the office of a lawyer or accountant, and is no less a real expense than room and food. A word about "risk of ruin. Perfect fractional betting is employed and no casino limits exist. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}He was a card counter, but did not entertain fantasies of becoming a pro. A two-Kelly bet? So, if the "ruin" probability is too great for the desired average win, blame it on the really good hands! Are you going for a day? The composite projections give you a good approximation of what to expect of our "investment" budget in head-to-head play at single-deck. For more information on how professional gamblers size their bets to maximize their earnings for bankroll size and game conditions, see Arnold Snyder's Blackbelt in Blackjack. When the term "bankroll" is used here, it refers to the "gambling investment" partition. This budget is typically composed of two distinct partitions: an "expenses" partition for room, food and incidentals; and a "gambling" partition for action at the tables. So you may wish to accommodate these zero and negative expectation hands as a separate type of "expense" item in your trip budget, perhaps further partitioning the "gambling" partition into "gambling expense," which pays for your seat at the table during hands which are even or negative, and "gambling investment," from which your positive expectation wagers are taken and to which your positive expectation wager wins are credited. ALL entries show positive average wins. This has the pleasant result of more than doubling your expected win while holding the likelihood of loss to approximately one-half, no matter how long a series of wagers you plan to make. Leib may draw fire for some of his unorthodox conclusions, but I find his basic idea here appealing. Two possibilities not including "barring" exist that may cut short your gambling activity: you run out of money or you run out of courage. Table entries with very large average wins are unreliable. These wins are frequently so large that ignoring all other final bankrolls setting them to zero has little effect on the average. That is my stop loss, I guess, not my bankroll. Blackjack Betting: The Leib Criterion vs. A full-Kelly bet? I shall suggest a slightly different partitioning which may make more sense to you. The simulation emulates the toss of a biased coin on which we get to wager on the better side. And do you "chicken out" before you lose it all? So, a simulation that gives a reasonable weighing to these possible outcomes would require a very large number of samples. Payoffs are even money plus an amount to increase the standard deviation to 1. In other words, to bet according to The Leib Criterion you must bet twice what you would in following The Kelly Criterion. Perhaps this split between the probabilities of winning and losing has caused some authorities to conclude that "It can be proved mathematically that an over-bettor who consistently bets twice the optimal amount will break even over the long haul" Wong, Professional Blackjack, page The fallacy in this conclusion is, of course, that when you win, your average win is much larger than is your average loss when you lose; and you will win as often as you will lose. The hand expectation must also be increased by this same factor, as the expected win comes in the fewer number of hands. There is a table for bettors who like to bet half the Kelly fraction, one for full-Kelly bettors and additional tables for bettors with persuasions to bet one and one-half, two, two and one-half, and three times the one-Kelly fraction. I would not try to discourage proportional betting. The wisdom of table-hopping shoe games becomes very apparent with a divided bankroll, as your investment dollars increase as your expense dollars decrease. This adjustment yields a variance of 1. Such an FOM will include the positive value to you of average win in terms of your initial bankroll and the negative value to you of the probability that you will reach your "chickening out" level during the trip. More coming this summer. It should be estimated from the game s you plan to play, how long you plan to play, and how you plan to bet in negative and zero expectation situations. Positive expectations do not come like that so some composite distribution of the positive continuum must be used. Well, one size may not fit all. The results of this part of the simulation process are shown in the tables under the heading of "Composite Projections. The betting fraction is always some fixed multiplier times the instantaneous expectation for all wagers. From a Kelly perspective, he was grossly overbetting his blackjack bankroll, but he argued this point with me. You may be surprised to discover, after you have defined your FOM and then looked at the tables, that no betting fraction can satisfy what you thought were your requirements for projecting a successful trip. Simulation of Blackjack Bet Size Strategies The variance for the outcome of a hand of blackjack is about 1. But, what proportion? It is this old "risk versus reward" concept revisited.
