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/

Could this technically be a lawsuit? On camera he’s telling you that you can’t play the same as every one else. I understand that they can just tell you to beat it and not play at all but he’s not saying that he’s saying you have to play how they want you to but everybody else can play however they want. That’s discrimination pretty obviously

everyone can play black jack. unless they win.. then they cant.. the smartest player is the one who dont.

The most crucial aspect is gaining enough deck penetration at +EV for this to work over the long run. Casinos know this in there war against the counters so they have CSM or cut and change the shoe at a level they know counters will have to reset over and start again. It's had it's day ladies and gents but by god it achieved tremendous success and will go down in history. Peace ✌️

This is a small Bitch casino probably a Cali Indian gaming establishment, I invite you Collin to the El Cortez in Vegas, you are free to set up your camera crew at our tables and play. We will accept any bets we will accept any style of play we are not afraid. Even with counting no man can put a dent in the all powerful house edge. Come and prepare to be crushed.

Goshtic (14 days ago)
Casino is a public place to openly rob uneducated people. That's how they steal money. Now, if you know how the system work and planning to rob them in plain sight like shown in the video, of course they're going to play "police" and apprehend you. You were systemically about to rob them of the money they rob from the other people. That ain't cool, especially the amount you were trying to quickly make. Making small and big bets, like slowly turning the combination number of a safe and slowly cracking it open.

Tbh, casinos should be outlawed. Places like Vegas have so many poor people because of it.
I agree with you. It would mean I can't count cards anymore but the boost to society at large would make that ok with me.
Fn casinos have no problem taking everybody's money as long as they are on top...soon as they start getting their asses handed to them they throw you out...smfh....fuck them

zakkrick (24 days ago)
My coworker started out with $500 and 5 hours later he won up to 10,000. They pull him aside and asked him if he was a professional blackjack player, so he told them that he wasn’t, so they couldn’t do anything. He was too fast at card counting so they didn’t catch him counting cards.
sometimes you just don't get backed off, sometimes you get backed off instantly. there's no easy way to predict what casinos will do with card counters.
raterus (25 days ago)
The way around this is to get a friend to count the cards and bet the minimum every hand, but have a secret signal for your buddy waiting across the room when the shoe is hot. Your buddy comes, and bets big until the count is bad again, then leaves.
yeah, this is called "spotter-Big Player" or "team play" and the merits of it in strictly EV terms are debatable.

For some good input, you could sign up for a blackjack apprenticeship membership and post on our forum. Our members would very happily try to answer this question for you. all the best, gus
Sound City (19 days ago)
+Blackjack Apprenticeship Gus45 Question for you Gus. I've been getting into counting, but I don't work a high income job and have heard that it's not worth it unless your BR is expendable. I know I'm not going to die cold on the side of road if I lose my BR and It'll be recoverable, but is it still worth getting a good job first? Or if you work hard enough to learn it well, is it something you can actually rely on assuming your starting with a solid BR? THX!

I was hoping they give him the hammer. That fat fuck was too nice
yeah, this type of stuff hasn't happened in casinos for decades.
This guy personifies the idea of a sleazy casino rat. Basically telling the man that the rules are different because he is smart. Flat betting? Saying the rules are different for certain people? I think every single person who enjoys playing blackjack at a casino should watch this video. The worst part of it is he tells the guy he cannot bet like everyone else when hes already in debt to the casino for $3500. That's disgusting
Dan Stafford (27 days ago)
If you're going to be a card counter you have to learn some camouflage techniques... if you're getting any heat you should drop back to flat betting and play basic strategy... and play slot machine for a few minutes and come back later to cash out... you have to throw them off your Trail because they really don't know if you're counting or not!
Gary Lu strikes again.
Gary Lu Productions (27 days ago)
I am pretty sure that he knows more camouflage techniques than you do but he does not use them for reasons shown in the beginning of the video.
fodolo craigo (27 days ago)
why play two hands? isn't that super obvious?
two hands will also cut down on what we call "variance" a bit.

Because I can lose I can switch my bat I can raise my bad lower my bad that the max and they keep on taking my money and they don't have a problem with it.
yes, Colin wanted to get backed off for the sake of the video.

shredx81 (30 days ago)
Forgive my ignorance as i'm not a gambler, but why don't Casinos run these games in a way that the players assume all the risk and the casino just has a policy of entrance fees and/or percentages of winnings. Is there not a way to ensure that the house maintains its float without having to infringe on the player's opportunism?
kind of an interesting idea, but casinos make way too much money with their current business model to think about changing it.
Daniel (1 month ago)
How is this even legal?At the very least the casino should have given his original money back if was be would have requested my original money back and made a complaint.
Vasilios Gatsiopoulos (30 days ago)
He didn't request that because he knew he wasn't going to get it back! I wish I had his gift I would win just like a hundred or two every day and walk away keep trying but I guess you can't saw how it works

Whats worse than losing all of your hard earned money to the Casino slots!? Being arrested for retaliating against those corrupt pieces of shit who have stolen Billions from citizens, and get away with it. Thats a double loss! Not for me man!

Am I crazy or can you play probability a lot better when you play 6or8 deck shoes. For instance you have 5 people at the table and don’t see a single face card or aces for a whole hand and you see 12+ cards burned can’t you say that’s a good chance of getting those face cards/21 on the next hand. It seems to happen a lot for me. I got 2 21’s with a lot of chips out playing this way last night.
there are advantages and disadvantages to playing both at full tables and heads up with the dealer. we discuss this at length on our website

+Blackjack Apprenticeship Gus45 maybe sandwich in a couple of losses but always ensuring that the profits are much larger than the losses?!
it's not how card counters are trained to operate. it sounds ideal but it's just not how it ends up working.

Counting cards gives you an edge, it doesn't mean you will 'win all the time'. The casinos are making far more money off the suckers gambling than what they are paying off to the card counters. They are just a bunch of greedy bastards

Juan Taylor (1 month ago)
Since counting cards is a process that happens entirely in the individual's head it is impossible for management to prove anyone was doing it. Conversely they can accuse anyone who is having a good night of counting cards without having to offer any proof.
Gary Lu Productions (30 days ago)
Brandon Pickett If you think that counting in multiple decks is nearly impossible, you most likely watched movies, such as Rain Man, that make it seem like you need to be superhuman to be able to count cards (the security guy said that no one in the world could count into a six deck shoe but that is completely false). In reality, even if there are multiple decks, card counting is something that anyone can learn, even though it is hard to master. I would recommend watching card counting tutorials on YouTube so you could see how easy it is to learn it.
Brandon Pickett (30 days ago)
+Gary Lu Productions dont casinos use multiple decks of cards? I dont know anything about card counting, but isnt it pretty much impossible to count cards when they are pulling from a pile of like 300 cards?
Gary Lu Productions (1 month ago)
Juan Taylor Technically, you should not bet in places where you have a better chance of losing but most gamblers still do. In fact, a vast majority of bets are in favor of the house and people place bets there. That is how the casino makes money. The reason casinos do not like educated players, such as card counters, is that they do not like players having an advantage over the casino.
Juan Taylor (1 month ago)
LOL, placing bets that give you the best chance of winning means being an educated gambler. It is not unethical. Should the individual place bets that give them a better chance of losing?
Juan Taylor when the house has favorable odds and you count cards you bet low until it's in your favor and then you start actually betting

Gary Lu Productions (1 month ago)
The way card counting works is that the player bets low when the odds are not in their favor and bets high when the odds are in their favor. In the long run, the player wins money. The casinos prefer you do not do that because they do not like players having an advantage over the casino.

guibox3 (1 month ago)
It helps if you are playing at a table where people are very loose with their bets, betting really high and really low, very erratically. It disguises your methodological betting and doesn't cast suspicion on you when you increase your bets by 5 or 6 units. Who cares about that when the two guys beside you are betting stacks about 6 inches high?
