The story of one man's quest to count card at every casino in Nevada with at least one blackjack table. The writing is full of humorous similes and observations. There are plenty of interesting stories to tell, from a car breakdown on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere to the death of the writer's father. Compared toLas Vegas Blackjack Diary the reading is lighter and more entertaining. This seems to be because the endeavor in Blackjack Autumn was mainly for the purpose of the book, while that of Las Vegas Blackjack Diary was a serious attempt at making money and the book an afterthought. If you want an enjoyable read get this book, if you want a more realistic depiction of card counting get Las Vegas Blackjack Diary.

Still, government, state and local, gobbled up gambling tax revenues, and it was a rare rebuke for the casino industry that year when Louisiana made it illegal to ban card counters from blackjack tables.

The MIT Blackjack Team was a group of students and ex-students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, and other leading colleges who used card counting techniques and more sophisticated strategies to beat casinos at blackjack worldwide. The team and its successors operated successfully from 1979 through the beginning of the 21st century. Many other blackjack teams have been formed around the world with the goal of beating the casinos.

Kaplan continued to run his Las Vegas blackjack team as a sideline while attending Harvard Business School but, by the time of his graduation in May 1980, the players were so "burnt out" in Nevada they were forced to hit the international circuit. Not feeling he could continue to manage the team successfully while they traveled throughout Europe and elsewhere, encountering different rules, playing conditions, and casino practices, Kaplan parted ways with his teammates, who then splintered into multiple small playing teams in pursuit of more favorable conditions throughout the world.

The MIT Team's approach was originally developed by Al Francesco, elected by professional gamblers as one of the original seven inductees into the Blackjack Hall of Fame. Blackjack team play was first written about by Ken Uston, an early member of Al Francesco's teams along with Bill Erb and Blair Hull. Uston's book on blackjack team play, Million Dollar Blackjack, was published shortly before the founding of the first MIT team. Kaplan enhanced Francesco's team methods and used them for the MIT team. The team concept enabled players and investors to leverage both their time and money, reducing their "risk of ruin" while also making it more difficult for casinos to detect card counting at their tables.

In the spirit of Doyle Brunson's Super System, Arnold Snyder's Blackbelt in Blackjack is an underground gambling classic written by one of the grand masters of blackjack and a legend. This newly revised and updated edition is now made available for the first time to a national audience. This is blackjack as a martial art, targeted for serious and professional players looking to win real money at the game. Snyder reveals tips and tricks used by the pros-shuffle tracking, team play, multiple deck camouflage techniques so that the casino can't detect that the player is using winning techniques, and much more. 21 powerful chapters include a complete course on beating blackjack: the devastating red 7 count, the hi-lo count, the zen count, the true count, and so much more.

A skillful blackjack player, one who counts cards, maintains some information about the distribution of cards remaining in the deck at all times. The player adjusts both betting style and play based on this "count" information. Depending on the rules used by a particular casino, the skillful player may have a slight edge over the casino. Without knowing exactly what the player is counting, we would like to write a program which is able to assess the player's playing skill.

There are two potential benefits from this research. First and foremost, this is related to the much harder problem of assessing the quality of decisions people make under uncertainty. For example, a pension fund manager tries to distinguish a good portfolio manager from a lucky one. Second, there are many gamblers who deceive themselves into thinking they are able to play blackjack well enough to beat the casino. In fact, casino blackjack revenues skyrocketed after Thorpe published his landmark book, Beat the Dealer, which explained how to effectively count cards. Players who discover their true skill (usually very poor) will hopefully be deterred from gambling. (As an aside, I suspect this sort of research is conducted by casinos who, due to their financial interests, are disinclined topublish results in the area.) 041b061a72
