Colin is one of the Pros from Blackjack Apprenticeship, as well as the subject of the documentary "Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians." While filming for the documentary, he was followed by undercover cameras to capture what a real backoff is like. After counting cards blatantly for half an hour, this is what the casino did... https://www.blackjackapprenticeship.com/ https://www.facebook.com/blackjackapprenticeship/

What does he mean I don't want to book your action? Also how much was he down he says he's in for 3000$ it sounds like he's saying he up 3k

Darrin Ros  You weren't a casino pit boss, or else you would know that there is no difference between counting a 2 deck shoe vs. a 6 deck shoe.

I love this video and I never thought anything fishy until I realized who is filming and how come nobody is acknowledging him
Blackjack Apprenticeship (40 minutes ago)
It was filmed by Bryan Storkel, my oldest friend, when he was making the documentary "Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians." He had a button camera on his dress shirt, so as far as the casino knew, he was just my buddy standing there watching me play, then watching me get backed off. There was no reason to suspect he was filming anything.

Wow that’s not the way casinos work, you should be able to bet what you want , when you want.

What is booking action? What does he mean when he says “I don’t want to book your action”?

@Blackjack Apprenticeship Is this illegal what they did to you? Because they are obligating you to play the game at a disadvantage just because they think you are counting cards, they don't even know for sure since they can't get into your head
Blackjack Apprenticeship (14 hours ago)
No, it's legal for them to refuse service to whoever they want. I don't have to play there if I don't want to play by their rules. It's all just the cat and mouse game of beating casinos at their own game!

Isn’t card counting a strategy though
Eduard Ordukhanov (2 days ago)
I thought most casinos today use an arbitrary number of decks which renders card counting useless?
WhiteOakRidge (2 days ago)
Counting cards was the ONE instance where the people figured out how to gain an advantage on the casino, now the "gaming board" allows them to use countless decks thus eliminating those odds. If this isn't the most obvious example of casinos cheating to get ahead I don't know what is.

I don't understand how this 1:1 discussion between the pitboss and the player were captured via video WITH audio... I get people get barred all the time, however this conversation being captured as such seems bizarre...
It was with a button cam. This was during the filming of "Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians." https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1780862/

Just don't get to greedy . 2 or 3 hundred a night at different casino's is a hell of a good living and you probably wouldn't get attention coming your way. Am i correct in thinking that or would they still stop you from playing ?

I'm a good blackjack player..that's all I'm gonna say but if this guy was smart he would of just played like the pit boss asked him to play instead of making it look extremely obvious that your counting cards..you could have still won a ton of money but in a slower pace and its harder to prove your counting cards if your not maxing the bet...just saying you could have still walked out with more than you came in with if you weren't so aggressive..you even admitted that your counting..why would you ever admit to counting cards to a pit boss???

Basically casinos are not to be seen as money-makers, just time wasters. If you do something win, you're cheating. If you win and don't get pinched, you get taxed. You're supposed to come in to spend money on getting drinks and get confused.

What's the point in learning how to count cards and you can't play lol.. Mugs game.. 👍
Chris Grieve (4 days ago)
Easy solution to card counting is make a few hundred every couple days and don't get greedy. If they notice you're clearing say a few thousand everytime you come in of course they will be suspicious.

Casinos are in business to win. But the gamblers can’t be in it to win or they get rolled. I think that’s bullshit. They want the odds in their favor but the second someone evens the playing field he gets flagged. They can’t prove your counting, it becomes suspicious when you fluctuate your bets.
Jx42 (5 days ago)
To all the guys saying the casino shouldn't be allowed to kick him out. It's a buisness. Casinos only exist because they make a profit. If they let him count cards they could just as well give out free money.

Well if the casino wants to back him off at least the casino should man up and tell the truth that they only let suckers play and back off players who legally beat the system (Card Counting). Look at what the Pit Boss said. Statement: We don't allow Card Counters Reason: We just don't book your action. We want people to play regular blackjack.

Jimmy Wang (8 days ago)
Any time you vary your bet like that, we will call out check play to let the floor notice and see if you are counting. I am an 20 years casino dealer/Floor Supervisor and we scope you out immediately. Do not fool the casino, we are NOT stupid and it happens all the time where we back off players like him. Now you are stuck and it is your problem. Tip the dealer well and we might keep your mouth shut. I see players like this every day and they are almost reliably all stiffs so we really want to beat the hell out of you. We are trained at single deck to know how many aces and 10 are in our hand or we will not pass the audition for the casino job. We are waiting for you. It is my job to protect the house from losing.

I dont understand why people get mad at casinos for not letting card counters in. Casinos exist so the house can make money. If they let card counters in then they will likely lose money. They would be an idiotic business practice.
dgretlein (10 days ago)
Hmm, what’s the name of this casino? Seems like a place not worth going to if you can’t play “regular blackjack” where anyone would apply basic logic such as I’m down $20, I’ll bet $30 to catch up .... or double-up once in awhile. While some comments paint Rod as being polite, he is trying to signal with his right shoulder ticks he is a tough wise guy and will hurt you if you don’t play his way ....

Anonymous Person (13 days ago)
Even a player that is counting, doesn't even the odds with the house. It just closes the gap a couple of percentage points. But the house does rely on those couple of percentage points to make money. Doesn't sound fair, but casinos weren't built on winners!

actually, i count cards and there are still plenty of casinos that book my action.... i've made over 6 figures in each of the past 12 years...

That's really a plain INTIMIDATION . They don't want you seeing winning money, all they want is get your money. It happened to me one time with my friend when we went to Vegas visiting from another country as a tourist. The guard approached my female friend asked for her I.D. because my friend was winning a lot. Good thing our relative in the states who was with us at that time is a corporate and criminal lawyer, and when they found out they are dealing with a lawyer, they started making excuses for their behavior

I rolled 7 straight winners in dice. I don’t remember how many times I had roll the dice to get there and it was my first time ever in a casino. Some guy from Texas was Standing up there and heard me talking about how I had never been in a casino so he asked me to roll for him. I rolled the 7 straight winners and the floor guy came over and checked the dice after the 4th and 7th rolls and said he didn’t want me rolling anymore. The people were all going nuts on him...why I don’t know, because after the 3rd winner I think more people were betting I would lose because of the odds. And I was betting nothing. So the Texas guy gave me $100 or so and they made me stop.

+Don’t Tripp I guess... a casino run by gonverment establishment, would be forced to adhere to whatever rules the people democratically decide on. But private establishments can do whatever the hell they want.
Don’t Tripp (24 days ago)
AzrielJale it’s the same with online sports betting if they see that you won’t be a profitable player then they just limit bets, ban you from any type of angle you had or just close the account. Then They just say internal management decisions and legally the player carnt do a thing about it
