I'm gonna talk about what is card counting and how does it work. So before we talk about what card counting is, let's talk about what card counting is not.
First off card counting is not illegal. that's probably the most common misconception but card counting you're actually simply using your brain in the casino which currently is still legal. Secondly, card counting is not get rich quick there are people out there that say it's easy, quick money and is not quick, easy money. You can make serious money with it, but it's not a get rich quick scheme also card counting does not involve memorizing cards you're not having to keep track of every card that's been played as far as memorizing what the cards are and finally card counting is not simply for geniuses. You don't have to have been from MIT or be Rain Man to do this. Definitely not.
Let's talk about what card counting is. Card Counting is a mathematical system. Blackjack is the only game in the casino where the previous decisions actually affect the future. Because blackjack is a set number of cards and set number of decks being played, when those cards have been played it actually impacts what cards remain to be played and that changes the advantage for the player.
So, how does card counting work? Well, there are three things that you must master if you want to be a profitable card counter. The first thing is called basic strategy. Which is the proper playing decision for every possible hand you could have against the dealer. Secondly, you have to master how to count cards and we will teach you that later. Third, you have to have a winning bet spread and proper playing deviations.
So my story is that I actually have been a successful professional card counter. I started almost 15 years ago. I played thousands of hours and averaged about 300 dollars an hour for my career. I also had the opportunity to play on and run blackjack teams that are responsible for winning close to four million dollars through card counting. There's actually a documentary about one of the teams that I ran.
It was called the church team and the documentary is called Holy Rollers the True Story of Card Counting Christians 1.58 million dollars taken out of casinos this year. I'm excited to take more money from casinos. I have also for nine years now been a part of Blackjack Apprenticeship where we teach other people how to beat casinos through card counting and we've had students that come through our training that have literally taken millions of dollars from casinos.
