These MIT guys are really good at card counting, they have written many books on blackjack card counting, with many Numerous Works by Kenneth Dickins. They have even written a book on how to win at blackjack over the internet. I think Kenneth is one of the best blackjack card counters alive today. But, what is their secret when it comes to card counting?
Their main secret is simple, but it takes a lot of practice. They are not really bad card counters, just that they like to slow down and make the right bets, instead of going all out and doing what the casinos want. Kenneth’s books on blackjack card counting are very easy to read, but take a while to put on your brain like they do. I have made the transition from the written word to the spoken word, and I still learn new things every day, so I guess it’s not a bad idea for the casinos to get the best players, since the casinos need to payouts for each hand dealt.
Here is how it works.First, take a look at the casino table layout, and count out your blackjack cards. The more you have above the dealer’s cards, the more you will win when the dealer has less than 17. And conversely, if you have fewer cards above the dealer’s cards, you will win when the dealer has more than 17. Easy enough, right? Here is where the problem lies.Most casinos will run blackjack games between 8:30am and 10:30pm. If you lined up 8 decks of cards, you would need to do 37 tickets in one sitting. To do so, you would need to take 27 decks of cards, since the decks are shuffled after every single game (except the main one, I guess). That means that you would need about 270,000 tickets. And guess what, most casinos only sell sheetless 6 deck blackjack cards, which are about 8.5 inches by 5.5 inches. To clear the deck, they shove them under the table.
Real counting is done by deductions from the true count. That is, you don’t care about the actual number, you only care about the ratio of high cards to low cards. You may have a situation where the ratio is 2:1, and in that case you would have to divide the number of low cards by the number of high cards, which would be 3:2. Any time you hear the dealer announce the “high card”, that’s when you need to bet the largest amount. Since the low cards have already been dealt, the deck will be mostly low cards by that time.
Not-so-slippery slope:As with any new skill, I quickly began to use the Hi Lo Card Counting system. It is not a terribly exciting system, but it is very natural and something that even people do. Based on the proportion of high cards to low cards, you immediately know whether you have the advantage over the house. If the deck is rich in tens, you have the advantage. If it is rich in Aces, you don’t. It boils down to pot odds. The only problem is that you have to remember all of the cards that have already been played, and the count starts at zero. So, it is easy to get carried away with a large pot, but not with a small one.
If you are serious about making money at the casino, card counting should definitely be part of your process. Part two of this article will discuss Card Counting methods and their practical applications.

Since my first article, I realized that there are many possible variations on a card counting system. So, I decided to expand my analysis to also look at the effects of these changes to a Blackjack player’s way of playing. I did this because, at least in theory, a card counting system can affect the house edge in a positive way. But, casinos are all like casinos, they need to collect a house edge to make a profit. They have an advantage over the player, no matter what system they use. Here is an example of my expanded definition of card counting:
While playing blackjack, if you have available information (such as a count), the ratio of high cards to low cards is a ratio of around 2:1. In other words, there are more ten-value cards in the deck, and there are more small cards (7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King). If the ratio of high cards to low cards is changed, the player’s advantage increases.
The rules of Blackjack tell you what the dealer should do with a favourable card (5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Ace).
