The house edge against a good player in blackjack is very small, less than 1%. Against a good card counter they have a negative percentage depending on the game and the bet spread. Who knows how much of a disadvatage a bad player is at.
Lets say the game is mostly chance but there is a certain aspect of skill, like 20% of the game would be skill and 80% absolute game of chance.
Sure does change things, the question is much more complicated now. What do you mean by 20% skill, please be exact.
I would say its subjective probability because there is some skill in the game.
It depends on how sure you are of the 1 chance in a 1000. If that is an estimated probability ( subjective probability ) then there is some room for error. If that is an exact probability ( objective probability ) like the odds of getting a six when you throw a die then
Ok great thanks.
That question can only be answered in terms of expectation.
Should someone enter into a competition where he has a 1 in 1000 chance of winning, then as a winner gets entered into a second competition where he has a 1 in 1000 chance of winning what would the probability of him winning the second competition?
