62% aren't bad odds to play against if you intend to beat the house, although that is rarely the odds as it depends on the cards in play at any time. That's why I usually raise the dealer and get the next card. I never hold at 16.

That said, if other players have been twisting with cards faced, you can guesstimate the odds back a bit depending on what has drawn from the shoe. I do not have the quick calculations or memory recall of decent players but I reckon it works more times than it doesn't.

Been a while since I played last though. I let my membership lapse at the club I used when I stopped spending half my ruddy life in London.

Never play a greyhound at cards. He may be poker faced but every time you deal him a good hand his tail starts wagging.
