Re: Mathematics and precedence rulesPoker and its many variations offer the same possibility of skill tipping the odds, while being more interesting (in my opinion) and not offending the casinos because the losers are the other players.

Re: Mathematics and precedence rules
In case A, you're just screwed. In case B, you have to find a strategy the casino hasn't countered yet (most casinos have long since taken measures to prevent black jack from tipping over the break even point), and it's by no means certain that any such strategy even exists. In case C, either you're good enough to do it professionally and probably do, or you're not and will lose to the people who are. You can try to join the professionals in case C, but there's only so much money from amateurs to split among them and they will try - hard - to prevent you from joining their ranks and reducing their share by outplaying you.
