I hit quads which paid $5k but rest is basic strategy game against the dealer. Took me about 24 hours of play to get there.
I am a professional black jack player but the rules got so bad in most casinos that it wont worth to play black jack any more. So, I stopped playing it (I also got banned in at least 7 casinos from playing black jack). This game is better than playing black jack, if you are an excellent poker player and good at risk management.
If you are good poker player, you can master this game relatively quickly. However, dealer always call you blind, so one should drop real poker type play and bet 4x preflop (similar to 'all-in') about 38% of the time. Most poker players wont do this out of regular habit and thats where they lose. Also, what helps to gain an edge in this game is, you can easily look at other players cards at the table and use that info to bet preflop or predict the cards. That can give a lot of edge to an advanced poker player.
I am looking for an exit from UVXY EOD. Typically, we see a small bounce intraday but the morning trend accelerates before close. So, I am still expecting to see 15.3+ on UVXY today.

Just loaded up big on SPY 133 calls expiring next week. Might make it a spread with the 137's if we don't get a bounce. Looking to get out with 10-20% profit, which would be at SPY 138, O7media's target hehe.
