This is really something most people can grasp pretty decently if you actually spend a few hours on it one day (assuming you can count, add , & subtract). I’m not just saying this. It seems a lot more complicated than it is. I found this guy has done a better job than anyone explaining quickly how it’s done. I encourage anyone to read into it more. It is NOT illegal to use at a casino either. The worst that can happen is they back you off and ask/tell you to leave.

Card Counting is LEGAL, but the Casinos will tell you to either Flat Bet, Stop Playing 21 or leave the Casino once they determine you are card counting and winning.
Brian S. (16 days ago)
I’m ugly i deadass thought u had to keep a tally of X4 on each value card and low sets. And the variable of course being the amount of decks being used but this is much easier.

How do we know how much deks are left
SanFranciscoBay (15 days ago)
Look at the shoe if it's a clear shoe. Or look at the amount of cards that have been played and estimate it based on how many decks are in the shoe.

Hi, I just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking man Mr clack. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for only money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions.. Four days later I received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, to my greatest surprise It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $5500 daily. ATM has really change my life. So you can also contact him on his whatsapp +2348149142724 THANK YOU FOR READING

Gary Lu Productions (16 days ago)
It’s totally legal to count cards but casinos prefer you do not. The point of the games is that the casino has the advantage and makes money, not the player.

Effectiveness of card counting is significantly minimized by the fact that there are many decks of cards shuffled. If there was only 1 or 2 decks boy this strategy would bank

It's not hard to find single and double deck blackjack. The hard part is finding those games, that also pay 3-2 blackjacks and let you double on any two cards.

Do you wish your social media content could create itself? Are you tired of paying for or doing it yourself and still not getting the results you hoped for? Results that so many others appear to be getting, doing the same exact thing you are? https://www.eventbrite.com/e/prop-tastic-social-media-content-props-now-never-pay-for-content-tickets-54095415845?aff=PropTastic&afu=294396109634

As a former card counter and current blackjack dealer, I can tell you that every counter I've ever met has been quite lonely and overall pretty depressing to be around. I'd pick up guitar if I were you.

If you're getting near the end of the shoe, and you know it's a bad count, you should bet less. I get it. Why wouldn't you just adjust your play and start taking more cards? Dealer has a 6 up. You have 14. Normally, you stay. Now you take a card. Right? Or don't you adjust your play at all?

Does card counting really give you that much of an edge when every 2-4 decks (something like that I think) all the decks are reshuffled ?

I pull $350 on average daily. But basic strategy in not enough. There are severe deviations you have to apply according to the count. Take even money on good positive counts. Don't get scared if you lose 5-6 hands. The rest, I am going to conseal cuz that info is worth millions and I want them to myself :)

+Hawaiian Prestige Cars Been in Vegas, never played. Good rule tables start at $50. Hard to hover around those without being noticed. My casino is $15 min with presently changed but still playable rules. Hit s17, 8 decks.
Hawaiian Prestige Cars (1 month ago)
Ilham H thanks, I meant you said 350$ is no problem for you a day. Let’s say you do this in vegas. How do they find out you’re counting? Then just throw you out? Maybe go to a different casino every day lol
Ilham H (1 month ago)
+Hawaiian Prestige Cars I kinda never thought about that, but I can give a few tips. Wonging, extremely effective. Deep pen. One deck or less. Good stuff begins at true 7 and up at one deck. Surrender any hand that will render you with two tens break. Ex: 13-17 against dealers 8-ace. There is more. People will be looking at you like u r crazy, but u r the only guy who will walk with a profit within 3 minutes. U might walk around for 2 hours Wonging, but those 5 minutes will render u big profit. Don't forget a support strap for your back while u hover around tables sipping on coffee. :)

DoucheBags (2 months ago)
I’ve counted cards in a casino but never really bet high when the counts in my favor, I just don’t understand. If when the true count is high it’s an advantage bcuz ur more likely to get higher cards but isn’t the dealer at that advantage as well?
