  1. If your good at math it’s not that hard I plan to study this video out more and give it a try

  2. The overconfident restaurant classically bubble because poet multivariately breathe outside a ashamed crack. sore, vagabond cooking

  3. Wait wait wait didn’t he do his math wrong ? It was + 17 and then after it played out the last card was an Ace which is a minus one …. before that ace it was +22 and then he said it was + 23 after the ace ….?

  4. Agree 100% but I would also change basic strategy once the shoe remaining becomes egregiously negative…eg Hit 12 against dealer 4,5…hit hard 17 vs. 10 etc. and also alter my doubles and insurance bets…

  5. Back in the late 80s I had a friend name Charlie while living in LA. He found out his dad in Ohio died and that he had an Autistic brother. He flew out there to meet him and found out he was good at counting cards. They went to Vegas to try his luck and sure enough won $80k before getting kicked out of the Casino. I think his brother’s name was Raymond.

    ini dia game yg ditunggu tunggu.
    ledakan bossku.

  7. Pause at 5:05
    He was at +17 before this deal and moved to +23 after, meaning +6 for the round/hand (I play poker idk what it’s called in BJ). I only see +4 on the board unless he’s counting the ace as a low card.. don’t know why he would do that. Someone plz explain or did he flub

  8. Celebrated a blackjack with 1200 on my hand dealer flip over black jack smh never celebrating with another player again I felt so stooopid

  9. The real count at about 5:08 did not increase 23, because his prior running count was 17. Then the next hand was: two 6’s, two 4’s, two 2’s, ace, and 10, so that’s an additional running count of 4 (6 – 2), and so 17 + 4 means the new running is 21, not 23, as the guy said.

  10. I swear to God I thought counting cards just meant “oh Jack is 10, that means I need 11 more :)”

  11. I have to cut my time in half before I am actually ready. I can count 10 cards all at once and super easy now. Practice makes perfect.

  12. I understand everything, except keeping track of the true count. Like, what’s the point of know the true count

  13. Welp. Came here thinking I might learn something cool about card counting, but I came out of it feeling dumber than ever.

  14. Remember that casinos are private places aka they can kick you out whenever they want. If you’re obvious and they understand you are using this strategy, you’re out. I even heard that some memory champions are not allowed in because they can count the cards that have come out (which is also why they use more then 1 deck for each play).

  15. you can play perfect blackjack fundamentals, but if you’re table is full of dumb dumbs you’re basically screwed

  16. take 100mg of adderall , and 100mg of modafinil before you go to the casino – the count comes to you theres litte to no effort involved in keeping the count or trying to hard to get ahead ..BUT and its a big butt do not do that more than 2x a week as you will completely lose focus and try to double your dose – which sends you backwards fast..dont be greedy /impatient or in any rush its counterproductive.

  18. Million Dollar Potential in Ruvol

    I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that is guaranteed to be far more challenging and exciting than CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.”

    Over time, Ruvol will surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.”

    Why am I so sure about this? Because I am an avid chess player myself. The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It’s for this reason I invented Ruvol where every game is always challenging and exciting to play.


    Ruvol is played somewhat like chess. I purposely invented Ruvol to give chess a direct “apple-to-apple” competition.

    Like chess, Ruvol is played by two players. It uses a board that is rectangular in shape but containing more number of squares than chess. Like chess, it has equal number of pieces on each side of the board, where each type of piece moves in distinct ways. However, if the way to win chess is to checkmate the opponent’s king, the way to win Ruvol is to be able to cross a designated line.

    But there’s one biggest advantage Ruvol has over chess that makes Ruvol a very challenging game to play. What is this? Unlike chess, the Ruvol pieces are randomly placed at the start of every game which makes it impossible for any clever player to memorize the moves. Fischer Random Chess, also known as Chess960, likewise introduced a random set up, but with many exceptions. Ruvol is 100% random.

    At present, there is no other board game in the world within the same category of chess “where chess players can switch to.” Chess is totally a monopoly in its class. Chess players can now have an alternative in Ruvol.


    In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. These 800 million players comprise the “Total Potential Buyers” of Ruvol across the globe. At an average profit of just US$3 per set, the “Global Income Potential” of Ruvol then is US$2.4 billion. Assuming only 1% of it will buy each year, the annual global potential sale of Ruvol is US$24M.


    For the reason that I don’t have the resources to publish Ruvol on a global scale, I find it “wiser” to simply sell my copyright.

    If you’re interested to buy my copyright, email me your BEST PRICE OFFER. My email address is: [email protected].

    Thanks and God bless!

  19. Oh man you should have done it much faster and complicated, this is so slow and simple for us to follow it

  20. wait so for example, if the running count was = -2 and there were 5 decks remaining, then the true count would be -2/5 = -0.4 or approximately -0.5? So when the true count is this low (and not even a whole number), what do you do? Do you just bet the absolute minimum? What is that true count telling us?

  21. What is 4.5 deck. Is it the number of cards remaining like 4 and a half card? What is a deck

  22. how about we just play 1 deck and shuffle it again after 1 round. is it this skills still useable?
