Recently I found him to discuss with me the e-mail card counting, which reads as follows:
Casino card counting technique is actually a big beneficiary.
Before surgery did not invent card counting blackjack casino flutter just play. Play dice play than people (Craps) and less wheel.
Card counting technique started to make casino scared, but later found that most people do not bother to learn.
"Blackjack card counting can beat" concept with the operator of the spread of brand book, make a blackjack to become the most popular American casino gambling drama, because most people have heard of blackjack can win, and admission own (than average) smart card counting too lazy to learn to play blackjack, the results of the casino earn more!
Of course, some people bought the book on the plane, the results of a large increase in confidence to play big.
Some people do not learn just because I heard that blackjack is most likely to win while playing blackjack ... is not going to play blackjack because people make mistakes more likely than other gambling drama lose him to play more. History often repeats. At present, many Chinese playing baccarat future with card counting technique spread, some people may change to play blackjack, do not repeat it.
Or suggest that you practice more on the table, tired do not serve, remember there are a lot of interference within the casino will distract you.
Teams can accelerate growth, but not necessarily participate to get young people more willing to spend energy trying to make money to learn to count cards, may be lower than 50 will, generally more than 60 can not learn.
