Blackjack Simulator

What’s a better way to get ready for a gambling trip other than write a blackjack simulator?  I am no blackjack expert but one of the strategies I heard off is to double your bet every time you lose.  So, if I start with a $100 bankroll and play $10 hands then I lost the first hand, I am down to $90 and now should bet $20.  If I lose then I am down to $70 and should bet $40 and so on.  If I win then I have $110 and should bet $10.  That is the basic premise of my blackjack simulator.

Results

Here is an output of the results after 40 hands for:
