Some people, like KJ, (I think) are fine with variance.
I think you are reading the other site too much, RS. lol. Someone over there always says I am ok with variance, as he promotes his super-duper, non-linear thing-a-ma-bob. You know, the greatest system ever that wins 10 times the amount with smaller spreads and NO variance. No losing what-so-ever. Just like a job..every few hours you take out your hourly.
'Those' people don't leave their computers long enough to even enter a casino let alone play the 'count system' they've supposedly devised. When you have the amount of time to type thirty or more 5 paragraph posts a day, you don't have time to win money in a casino. Don't even engage them.
BUT I wouldn't say I am fine with variance. That is like saying you are fine with losing and really..who is? This time one year ago, I was just finishing my worst year in a decade as far as blackjack results. $27,000 profit vs expectation (EV) of more than 3 times that amount. And during most of the second half of that year, I b*tched & moaned and cried like a baby.
Most of my AP is non-BJ, so I can be a bit more strict with what I play, since I'm not playing BJ every day grinding out many hours. If a game doesn't have a high SCORE or hourly and low risk etc etc..

Penetration is the percentage of cards dealt before the dealershuffles. In Blackjack shoe games the dealer usually deals to acut card. In single-deck games, the dealer often deals a fixed numberof rounds depending on the number of players. In all cases, thedeeper the penetration the better for the card counter as more informationis known and a better range of counts is available. These chartsare different from the previous charts as they display overall resultsdepending on the overall penetration. That is, they do not showthe advantage at a particular depth, but the overall advantage ofall hands when the dealer deals to a specific penetration. On thex-axis you will see numbers from 130 to 26. This means that 130to 26 cards are behind the cut card. 26 indicates that the penetrationis 5.5 out of 6 decks. The last card dealt in this case would actuallybe past the cut card since the shuffle occurs at the end of a round.
This chart displays the player advantage for 130 to 26 cards cutoff for a six-deck game using Hi-Lo and bets from 1 to 12 units.We can see that the advantage at 130 cards (2.5 decks cut off) isabout .64% and this increases gradually to 1.67% at 26 cards.
