I haven't understood any of this as I abhor both card games and memory games, but still this seemed just as simple as any basic card, making it absolutely stupid to expect anyone not to do this (sort of as a "rule").

Hit on 16 against a 6, not in a million years. Do the math.....even with a high count on the last hand of the shoe you wouldn’t hit.

As a croupier I can tell you guys this is fake, as other have pointed out no branding on the chips, they are all standing up, I've never seen a stand up blackjack table, and as for his 'strategy- you can only count the deck to assess whether the risk is more in your favour slightly or not, to figure out whether to make a decision of card or no card, in no circumstances would you take a card on 16 when dealer is showing a 6, this is faked to probably get people to believe they can beat the casino and you may be able to beat the casino once or twice that's called luck, In the long run you will lose.'

wrong in so many ways...starting with the goal of blackjack, which he messed up too: The aim is for the player to beat the dealer. That's it. Beat. The. Dealer. No BS about 'closer to 21' etc. This guy doesn't know blackjack when he starts out saying dumb stuff like that.

It's a tiny demonstration of his abilities. This is nothing. If he says the dealers & gamblers aren't in on it then they're not in on it. It's Derren Brown FFS. 🤣 It's clearly too much for many of you to comprehend. He's a unique act who has been going for years. People are starting to copy him more. I've seen someone basically doing one of his his oldest routines in Vegas. He does way better shit live on stage. The rest of the world is waaay behind when it comes to this guy.

I call bullshit even if you know what cards are left in the deck there is no way of knowing what card will come out next, for instance If there is a 2 4 9 8 7 10 3 left there is no way of knowing which one of those will be dealt next

I play roulette and I win betting on columns and dozens. I win about 3 to 4 times out of ten plays and walk away after an hour with a thousand dollars. My stake is 500 dollars, when I finish after an hour, I go to another casino with the same 500 dollar stake. If I get tired, I walk away. If I'm up 800 dollars and miss three bets in a row, I quit. I have been asked to leave once and that was because I stayed at one wheel for 2 hours and was up 2,600 dollars. It's funny because there is no way to cheat at roulette. But they hate a winner even though while I won 2.600 dollars the place took in about 500,000 bucks from everyone else.

An interesting take on card counting.
grindryte (1 month ago)
that's not a casino, the men are all standing there like awkward muppets dressed in suits. Nobody is drunk, the dealer can't deal, he stupidly hit on a hard 16, his memory trick is fkn useless as black jack cards can be counted using a -1, 0 or +1 system. This is a staged scene that gives a predictable outcome to favour the story, Let's see him play in a real casino with real cards.

This is stupid. The normal counting strategy is 2-6 gets assigned a +1 value. 10-A gets -1. You keep a ruurrunning total. But you’re only adding and subtracting one to get a running count. Adjust the count for how many decks remain. A large positive count means the deck is rich in 10s and As. You have an advantage. More elaborate counts can increase odds but any mistakes will negate the advantage.

Most casinos use 10 decks now and replace them after like 4 or 5. Counting cards doesn’t give you an advantage anymore unless you’re at a really small casino that doesn’t use that technique for cost reasons.
Chris Baker (2 months ago)
I have played blackjack at casinos before I have seen as little as 1 deck used, I have seen 2 decks used, I have seen 6 deck used. 1 deck has the best odds if it is not 6 to 5.

This is such bullshit - for a start that wasn't a casino it was a hotel suite so the whole thing was a set up and secondly with enough practice anyone can count cards but it isnt a fool proof - a lot of people have lost money doing this.

tdfowler79 (2 months ago)
This is such bullshit. There is no situation in which hitting 16 vs a 6 is correct. Especially in a 4 deck game where the reshuffle appears to be about 1 deck thick. Even if the count was insane and there were all small cards left, he still played incorrectly. The correct thing to do would be to either: a. not play or b. certainly don't let his winnings ride like he appears to be doing. Unfavorable count (more little cards left) = bet less. Also, why does act like he's the smartest/bravest person alive when he doubles down on 11... against a 5? THAT IS BLACKJACK 101.

Blackjack Army does it better, the lad hit 6 casinos in one night and took $210,000. He films his stuff too, hits casinos wearing disguises until they rumble him, they can’t legally evict him, but they can stop him altering his bet amounts at the table or “politely ask him to leave” or stop playing the blackjack games. card counting isn’t illegal as long as you don’t use devices to help. Nothing wrong with just being better at the game than the casino lol

Counting four decks is easy. Too bad most casinos use 6-8 that I know of. Well at least here in Tampa. The whole sticker thing was ridiculous in my opinion lol WHATS 16?! "Sweet". USE IT IN A SENTENCE! Man that sugar is sweettt =P
ChR!5t0fUr HoWaRd (13 days ago)
nice thats whats up. I'm 28 and I totally understand brother. That is why I play texas holdem, whereas their is alot of skill involved too. The psychology of it can actually make you a long term winner, but like all games discipline is a factor. You can make 250-500 a day guaranteed. Rotate between at least 3 different card rooms and stay disciplined. Use your winnings and invest in big tournaments such as 50k and up guaranteed prize pool tournys. Yeah you can have bad days running but thats why you buy-in low to medium, and have atleast 3 extra buy-ins just in case you slip. Playing semi-highstakes poker is best because all it takes is winning one hand and you are up $50 minimum. I've done this for many years then got into partying and drugs ruined my life. Had a mobile home of my own paid off with two vehicles. Still had plenty of cash i'm talking tens of thousands but like I said I was young and dumb and got addicted to the rockstar life and pissed it all away. I'm in the process of returning next year to being successful. Investing in college, my family, etc. But yeah bro good luck and get that money.
Amir Rahman (13 days ago)
I am a lifetime winner in Roulette because I've only played it properly maybe 15 times. Probably up 1,000 or so GBP from Roulette, lifetime. One time I put GBP5 on number 30 and it came up. The ONLY number I put. It came, lol. I got back 175 + 5 from that since payout was 35:1. Then I started putting more numbers per spin and went on a roll and didn't miss a single number for 15 straight spins. I made 1000+ profit and stopped playing. I then went to the Blackjack table and lost all that profit back in 2 shoes. In Blackjack I am down roughly GBP100,000. And I am only 22. Jobless, too (just graduated uni). Yeah. The truth is this; the less you go to the casino the better. Not that I've never been on a winning run against the casino, it's just that they take it all back sooner or later. Why? Human greed. You up your stakes, and lose your discipline. Next thing you know, all that hustlin' has gone to shit. You now owe people money! I fucked up my life sort of. This is what most people need to know when they dream about winning big amounts from the casino; out of 1000 people that go in, only 1-2 are Lifetime winners. Don't go in there thinking "this is where I make money. This is my workplace. This is my hustle." Life ain't that easy for most. Chances are you won't be so lucky. Without intelligence and Luck, you won't make money. Without discipline, you will lose it all back. Pick your battles, know when to stop. Know when to say "Today's not my day. Maybe try again tomorrow." Because if you keep withdrawing money, and you've withdrawn 10 times from the ATM, that's when you know... You're a sucker. Suckers don't win.
ChR!5t0fUr HoWaRd (13 days ago)
hmm I can see your logic here. For I am more of a Texas Holdem player, i'll agree with you to an extent. Regardless of how many decks are used the probability/ratio stays the same. I see what you mean by the more decks the more face/ace cards, but that also brings in the extra percentage of the rest of the deck. It all comes down to true count regardless. You should be hustling roulette over in the UK. Id be rich if we had real tables here in Fl.
Amir Rahman (13 days ago)
Actually the less decks the more difficult it becomes. I play 4 decks and 6 decks in the UK. I'm addicted to the game. I know everything there is to know about it. Now that that's established let me explain my argument for why 4 decks is harder than 6. First of all, in 4 decks, you get less Blackjacks. This is because you have less Aces and less Picture/10 cards. This is true not just from anecdotal evidence, it is LOGICAL as well. Google it. Secondly, what is not explained is this; when you play 4 decks, they cut the cards at a much higher proportion than for 6 decks. What does that mean? That means when you play 4 decks, you only play until 65-75% of the 4 decks are finished, and then it is reshuffled. When you play 6 decks, the dealers will cut from 75% all the way to 85%, so this gives you a better chance of knowing what your "true count" is and you can thus better strategize for how to deviate from basic strategy and when to increase or decrease your bet sizing.

Some or all of this man's videos may be staged. I don't know. But if a person can remember which cards have been played, without cheating, then that person should be allowed to bankrupt a casino if they can. What other business can refuse service to someone, much less ban them, based on arbitrary reasons?

This clip is simply using Blackjack as an example of memory association. However, before you all think of associating playing cards to your preferred 52 items in a room; and gambling your house at a Blackjack table, be aware of Random and Continual Shuffling Machines (RSM & CSM's) now used in most Casino's world-wide. I guarantee you, this method would NOT give you ANY advantage whatsoever; particularly as in many 5/6 deck games, all of the cards are now re-shuffled; often when there's even less than 1 deck within the discard tray. I'd love to see Derren try this method in casino's within the USA, Australia, etc. The results would be nowhere near as profitable; and the only time you'd be asked to leave, is once you'd run out of money. To this end, this clip may entice people to gamble by believing they'd clean up. That's a completely WRONG message to give people; particularly gullible ones who could be driven to the point of serious/fatal self-harm. Sorry Derren, I love some of your work but truly believe clips of this nature can be very dangerous to many, many people.
