Techniques like this do work. I can still remember answers/phrases/sentences from my GCSE revision 25 years ago. I used “similar” techniques as Derren.
Looks to me like a video to encourage people to make the worst possible play in BJ (hitting a 16 against a 6) in the hope of becoming a winner. I suppose there is are worse plays than that, he could have split 6-6 against a dealers 10, or doubled down with 20 against a 6!

Great waste of memory to remember the suit of the cards... And on top of that, go try your lame trick in regular casinos which have 6 constantly shuffling decks. Laughable.

U Wot M8? (1 day ago)
Why the fuck would you need to remember the suit? I understand that he's trying to show the fact that rather than traditional counting; i.e. 2-6 (-1), 7-9 (0) and 10 upwards (+1), he's actually remembering the exact numbers which are left in the deck. Still no reason for remembering the suit though...

Every 20 minutes?? sounds plausible..And if you look at it on average for 3 seconds each time?? , that means I have just over 9 days a year for doing other stuff just because I don't have one...If I played the 2nd hand I think?? that you played when you got 20 and the dealer bust , I would have won by applying the 11/12 rule and without even counting..Its a wonder the pit boss didn't pull you up??..Ive yet to test the 11/12 rule.. I'm confident it will work , but not confident to try it out until I test it first..

So he played what, like 4 hands? You can't make card counting work that quickly unless you watched the table for a while prior to joining. I call bullshit.

A genuine question I have here, if this IS legitimate, then where is her paddle to take money, and where does she put her tips?
Danny Esher (16 days ago)
I'm a blackjack dealer and I'm not the first to say that this seems staged, almost everything about the scene seemed slightly wrong. Along with this, his "method" is definitely just a way to make it seem more impressive, pure show. The whole "mind palace" thing is very slow and inefficient, plus you need to have a superhuman memory (not denying he has one, just saying.) There are far easier ways to count cards, and this method is mostly meaningless when you consider that it's only really effective at the very end, and that many cards are behind the cut card and won't be playing at all. Not to mention that most BJ tables with a bonus are 6 decks and BJ only tables are usually 8 decks. This is there to make it incredibly more difficult to count, let alone remember every single card.
Danny Esher (16 days ago)
Yes, you can find single deck tables as well, but most have 6+
Ali Zadeh (16 days ago)
If the casinos can legally throw you out when you are winning then there should be law to stop people when they are loosing too much. If the casinos can not afford to loose their business then neither should the player be able to loose too much of his money or his car or house or his business.which means all he has got in life and even his own life. Suicide is quite common amongst gamblers.

This is total bullshit and 100% staged. Card counting is about slowly but surely putting the odds 'roughly' in your favor so you have a slight edge... not predicting exactly what cards are going to come out, that's not possible and not how card counting works. When they said 'he never lost' or never got it wrong I know it's fake.

You can hit on 16 vs 6 and it might work. For you. But the other players at the table will be pissed because they will have stood on hand like 12 or 14.

Yawn. I was a dealer in Vegas for 25 years. Go ahead Yoda show me your secret. Okay why don't you just intitle the video how to count cards? Yes this can work but you can lose your ass waiting around for a good plus count. Unless you have a card counting team good luck. This can only give you about a 1% advantage. You're getting lucky. All those little tricks with the objects is completely silly. Counting cards is Child's Play. As soon as it goes to a nice true Count plus and you start betting monster stacks a good dealer and floor person will know exactly what you're doing instantly. And then it's bye bye Charlie. Especially when you're hitting a breaking hand looking at a bust card. Where I'm from you would be asked to leave in a heartbeat. So you might want to stay where you are. If you expect to win when you walk into a casino you're a complete idiot.

Puts edge in his favour (apparently) then proceeds to bet entire stack multiple times. Yeah really smart there Derren.

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.
Merrik Ceadall (1 month ago)
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.'
Follow Me (1 month ago)
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

In this episode: Derren Brown does what is essentially card counting, a well known scam, that casino's know and will ban you for doing, and pretends like he's a fucking genius. In the next episode: Hopefully we don't see this pompous twat on our screens again.

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 (3 months 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.
