Nothing he dud was extraordinary even with those rules and card counting he only had a 2% edge ... say he was A mastermind who could literally memorize every single card dealt at any given time and know exactly which cards are left and how many of each are left.... he’d still only have a 2-3% edge ......

the biggest issue here is that Johnson was able to ask for things that give him an advantage without getting laughed out of the casino. I doubt any casino I go to would even consider agreeing to any of the terms Johnson proposed, "lost $1000 tonight, could you just give me back $200 of it?" or "The dealer has a soft 17, I got an 18, can he just not hit that?" now, doubling down on any hand? they let you do and where I go in particular they let you split up to 3 hands instead of 4 but those are the house rules they are willing to provide and are unlikely to bend on any other.

Obviously a marketing ploy from MGM to attract more gamblers.  There is no such thing as "distracting" the dealer.  They are governed by a set of rules/regulations so they can't make a mistake quite frankly as long as you are watching the play.  Best odds to win in a casino is either roulette (choose red or black) and blackjack.

He is not famous he bent the rules in his favor cheated and used decoys to just be loud and abnoxious. I thought this video was going to be about a person who won the money straight up.

Lol distract the dealer? Its blackjack not a poker game the dealer follows a set a rules and doesn't deviate from those rules. Distracting the dealer doesn't give you an advantage in blackjack

You can distract the dealer if you are playing blackjack with extras. I convinced a dealer that I won on my down bet matching cards 20 times in a row
andyduman123 (9 months ago)
20% rebate? Lol a casino would never negotiate that kind of deal with somebody. They'll maybe give you a 20% line of credit on your losses, but not a rebate. They didn't build those places giving kickbacks on money they've already won.

You can not confuse or affect the dealer, because he plays with certain rules and even he can not get emotional to change bet size or anything. This video is a set up to encourage people to play. My comment is based on lot of experience on both side of the table.

If you can get a 20% discount on loses you would have a huge advantage. Why would a casino agree to that? The house advantage with no discount is .5% with basic stragedy with average play it is about 2-5% a 20% discount on losses would put me at a 19% advantage.

Legendary promo idiot. Stay on soft 17 and double any first two cards is standard normal rule.who playing on different rules is stupid. Anyway,kind of BJ from american casinos,mean one face up and one face down card for dealer is stupid also. Try to play a normal BJ. In Europe somewhere,for example

How do you manipulate the cards though? I mean if its a bad shoot, its a bad shoot.
Luck is a Beautiful Thing! But when anyone has to continually Depend on it, They will find themselves in a terrible situation. There is only "ONE" game Within' Any Casino That Any Professional Can Hold And Maintain a 10% Edge Over, AND THAT IS THE GAME OF "BACCARAT" ... This is a Proven Fact by Many Math Experts From All Around The World! We know this for a fact, ... WE TEACH MANY OF THEM!!!
