    Guys, how are we coming on our decades analysis?

    Considering only five numbers are drawn, one might suppose that you would get "better odds" by omitting several decades.

    The units.  1- 9

    tens

    twenties,

    thirties,

    fourties, and

    fifties are all represented.  Thus at worst if the combination break down was 1-0-1-1-1-1, then playing all the decades would give you "worse odds".

        I like that....... Some people use up multiple lines...... As an example, I could suggest that boney insert

        "I am correct in everything that I say because I learned it in a book and I can give you the reference"

        The reason I am right when I post things here, is because I only post when I know what I'm talking about or I say "I don't know."

         

        You can say "I think" as much as you want, but when there is information out there, and the truth is known, your thinking about a lot of these things in a waste.

         

        It's like trying to create calculus all by yourself.  Why the hell would you, when you can just take a course in calculus if you wanted to learn it?

          I'm sure you don't have ANY idea what I'm talking about boney, but here is an example: I repair peoples plumbing at their house when things break. I frequently get customers who want to tell me HOW to proceed in doing repairs because they are an Architect, or a Contractor, or a Engineer. Guess what? Because they have NO practical experience with with doing repairs they are only talking psychobabble and have no idea HOW to fix the problem and that why they called me in the first place. It never ceases to amaze me how much of a "WASTE OF TIME" they want to impose upon me trying to explain something they have ZERO experience with.

          Sure, that's true.  A plumber probably knows more about plumbing than someone who has the capacity to learn how to do that work, but never has.

           

          So why do you think it's different for numbers?  Why do you think your intuition is more credible than the knowledge of people who've taken the time to learn how these things really work?

              Because it takes a lot of practice to develop intuition.

                    I never said a legend, in fact I said I know how to do it but likely never will.

                     

                    Second of all, if you had the patience to read what Id written, you'd know that I have played blackjack in a sasino, with real money.

                     

                    You asked me if it has been proven, or if I was guessing.  I'm telling you it's been proven, and you can look it up.  Instead you continue to make dumb suggestions based on flawed logic while refusing to look up the truth.  I don't mean to be rude here, but you are IGNORANT.  You are the very definition of ignorant.

                     

                    You are annoying, you put words in people's mouth, ignore what they've said, ask questions with no intention of every paying attention to the answer.  You reguse to learn.  If anybody disagrees with you you just try so hard to tell them they're wrong.  It doesn't matter that you admit you don't know the math, it doesn't matter that you can easily find the info.  You fight tooth and nail till the bitter end to try to suggest you are right without thinking for a second that anybody who didn't already agree with you might be right, even in a field you clearly know next to NOTHING about.  You are full of yourself and you think that your age means you know more about things you've never bothered to study, and these things are easy to look up.  Go ahead, keep living in your fantasy world where math only applies HOW you want it to, so that in your head the math doesn't hold up for you.

                     

                    I've already said I'm not going to give you a lesson in card counting, but the truth is that you are too dumb to understand it.  I realize that's insulting, but I have no other words for you.  You could probably be a lot smarter, if you weren't so dang ignorant that you won't listen to nayone who isn't already agreeing with your warped view of the world.

                    "Second of all, if you had the patience to read what Id written, you'd know that I have played blackjack in a sasino, with real money."

                    You said you were under 21 so your experience playing Blackjack can't be the same as someone over 30 who played thousands of hands.

                    "I'm telling you it's been proven, and you can look it up."

                    Without reviewing every Blackjack game ever played, it's impossible to prove the actions of another player can't effect the outcome of a hand. You're guessing and anybody that says they proved it is guessing too.

                    "Instead you continue to make dumb suggestions based on flawed logic while refusing to look up the truth."

                    There is nothing to look up; another player's actions changed the outcome of another player's hand.

                    "You are annoying"

                    LMAO!

                      Technically although the published odds are better for pick 3 and pick 4, if you think about it logically it is NOT easier.

                      A pick four game is essentially a 4/40 game.

                      A pick five game is 5/40

                      A pick six is 6/40

                      Logic would have me believe it is easier to get a 4/6 in pick six  then it is to get a 4/4 in pick 4.

                      Why? Because there are two extra balls being drawn, which means two extra chances on my playslip trap some winning balls.

                      When you play the pick six you shot for 4/6.  When you play 4/40 you shot for a front or rear pair.

                      Take keno for example.

                      A 20/80 games would reduce to 10/40.  That means there are 4 additional balls to trap then a regular 6/40.

                      Besides those who feel they have an edge in a pick 5, lose that edge trying to win a pick 3.  Thats why very few players in the pick3 forum post in the larger matrix games, and vice versa.  I took a dabble at the pick 3, but I have abandoned the effort because I began to lose my edge, my "intuitive feel for the game" and the stress became unbearable to shoulder.

                      and thus I am sitting out tommorrow and I may decide to 'hunt' one number.  The 314.  And if it comes out tommorrow.  F--K it.  It only pays 500, when I would rather win 80,000.

                        Ronnie is a self professed 1%, which is the reason I think bone, med, and jam, dislike him, but I dont really care, If I can help somebody who wants to win so be it.

                        But workout are just that.  WORK.  And the paycheck is never guarenteed.

                        Thus since getting numbers requires work, thats why most people love QP. 

                        I hate them.  I get them for free all the time in my Pick 5, and they rarely come through. 

                        The luck involved in getting a winning quick pick is titanic compared to the luck required for somebody looking for "something".

                        What is that "something", well that is another story.

                          Players like myself just don't care for pick3 games and wouldn't play them even if the tickets were free.

                          I don't bother with the Publisher Clearing house game either and it's free.

                            That's not unique, you could say that to any PB or MM players and be right 95% of the time.  But then the odds of winning the big one are 1 in 175 millions.
