- BlackJack Unit: a specific dollar amount that is used to define how much a player will bet given the currently perceived advantage.
- In blackjack, a player will generally bet one unit (or less) during non-advantageous situations... all the way up to two hands of ten units each in very advantageous situations.
- Bets in between these extremes are not uncommon, depending on the current state of the deck (and other considerations).
- A Player expects to win about 2 units per hour on average.
- example: with a $25 unit, a player will bet anywhere from one hand of $25 to two hands of $250 each. He will expect to average about $50 per hour at this level of betting.
- Poker Unit: The upper betting limit in a poker game.
- example: at a 10-20 hold-em game, a player is considered to be playing at a $20 unit.
- a player expects to average about one unit per hour in poker. ($20 per hour in the above mentioned 10-20 game)
B) Unit Sizing...
Players shall never play at a unit size bigger than prescribed by management (as listed on the following chart); though they may choose to play at a smaller unit size for a variety of reasons.
BankRoll ($) X Deck BJ Unit 1 Deck BJ Unit Poker Unit 0-3000 $5 $5 $8 3000-5000 $10 $10 BR/100 5000-8000 $15 $20 BR/125 8000-14000 $25 $30 BR/150 14000-22000 $30 $40 BR/200 22000-32000 $40 $50 BR/300 32000-44000 $50 $60 BR/400 44000-60000 $60 $80 BR/425 60000-infinity BR/800 BR/600 BR/450
example: with a BR of $10k, a player might choose to play blackjack with a $25 unit. At the Washington mini-casinos, he would choose to play at a $10 unit (even with a $10k BR) because of the betting limits imposed at those casinos.
example: with a BR of $10k, a player might choose to play a game of 10-20 hold-em (or up to 12.50 - 25.00, if he can find one). If he doesn't want to drive far, then he will choose to play 4-8 at 7Cedars.
