From the Book: Never, never, split 10-value cards, such as two face-cards, and never split 5s and 4s. Always split aces and 8s. Splitting 10-value cards is my favorite example of greed. Players who split a 20 should have their head examined. Knowing when to increase your bet when the opportunity is there, and reduce your bet when the opportunity is gone, is the advantage of card-counting. A dice player should only make pass-line and come-bets with double-odds. That's the mark of a tough player. If you start with small bets, and progress to larger bets only if you're winning, you're the toughest opponent possible at the table. Some players press up their losing bets to recoup losses, based on the dangerous notion that you can't lose ten hands in a row. You can. And you will, sometime. Never press up during a losing session! Players who believe in "clocking" a roulette wheel harbor strong feelings about the wheel's inability to produce unpredictable random numbers. Sometimes baccarat players can be found betting $10,000 a hand! The players can win or lose $500,000 in just a few hours. Video poker machines, unlike other slots, offer players a chance to shop for percentages by noting the paytables on the feature-glass of each machine. Some casinos will display the totals of all keno numbers that have been chosen over the prior week. They are convinced there is no bias in their system.
