I have played millions of hands of vingt-et-un. I started working my way into the gambling halls when I was still underage. I have played online twenty-one, I have counted cards, and worked as part of a team for a little while. Given all that I have still lost a lot of cash at chemin de fer. The gambling dens have made it very hard to beat the game.

I still enjoy the game and wager on a regular basis. Over this time period I have wagered on a variation of vingt-et-un called "The Take it Leave it Method". You definitely will not get loaded with this tactic or beat the casino, nonetheless you will have a lot of fun. This method is based on the fact that chemin de fer seems to be a game of streaks. When you’re hot your hot, and when you are not you’re NOT!

I gamble with basic strategy vingt-et-un. When I lose I wager the table minimum on the successive hand. If I lose again I bet the lowest amount allowed on the next hand again etc. As soon as I hit I take the payout paid to me and I bet the initial bet again. If I win this hand I then leave the winnings paid to me and now have double my original bet on the table. If I succeed again I take the winnings paid to me, and if I win the next hand I leave it for a total of four times my original bet. I keep wagering this way "Take it Leave it etc". Once I do not win I lower the action back down to the original sum.

I am very disciplined and do not "chicken out". It gets very fun at times. If you win a few hands in sequence your bets go up very quickly. Before you know it you are betting $100-200per hand. I have had fantastic runs a couple of times now. I left a $5 table at the Paris a few years back with $750 after 30 minutes using this tactic! And a number of weeks ago in Las Vegas I left a table with $1200!

You must comprehend that you can give up a lot faster this way too!. But it really makes the game more exciting. And you will be aghast at the streaks you witness playing this way. Here is a chart of what you would wager if you kept winning at a five dollar table.

Bet five dollar
Take 5 dollar paid to you, leave the initial 5 dollar bet

Wager 5 dollar
Leave five dollar paid-out to you for a total bet of ten dollar

Wager ten dollar
Take 10 dollar paid to you, leave the initial $10 bet

Bet 10 dollar
Leave $10 paid to you for a total wager of twenty dollar

Wager $20
Take $20 paid-out to you, leave the initial $20 bet

Wager twenty dollar
Leave 20 dollar paid to you for a total bet of $40

Wager 40 dollar
Take 40 dollar paid to you, leave the first 40 dollar bet

Bet $40
Leave 40 dollar paid to you for a total bet of 80 dollar

Wager 80 dollar
Take $80 paid-out to you, leave the original 80 dollar wager

Wager 80 dollar
Leave eighty dollar paid to you for a total wager of $160

Wager 160 dollar
Take $160 paid to you, leave the first one hundred and sixty dollar bet

If you left at this point you would be up 3 hundred and 15 dollars !!

It’s iffy to go on a streak this long, but it does happen. And when it does you can’t deviate and drop your wager or the end result will not be the same.
