An excellent book

In November 2000, from printing house Bonus Book, John May released an excellent book on Twenty-one called Get the Edge at Blackjack. It invites you to learn real, effective strategies that the casinos hope you will never know, but that are used in secret by the best players. These techniques are called advantage-play methods because they give their users an advantage over the casino.

Rich content

The book begins with a short synopsis of the rules of Blackjack, which is a little odd for a book that addresses itself to experts of the game. You then come across an introduction to basic strategy and an introduction to card counting, via the Hi/Lo count system. Next, you will see two methods that are even more effective, including KO count. You will learn everything there is to know about the art of betting. For example, the author recommends that you bet 40% of your bankroll if your first card is an ace. You will also discover methods to help you try to beat shuffle machines. It is more of an experiment than a proven method, but it still reveals itself to be rich in teaching. At the end of the book, there is a chapter on online casinos that will help you break the bank.

A book for frequent players

Most of the techniques are not useful for the occasional player. They demand a great deal of practice and several require the formation of a team to be really effective. Some are also only applicable in particular situations and can only be used rarely, for example, during a game with an inexperienced dealer. However, if you are a regular player, you should find what you are looking for. In effect, the book offers a number of very effective weapons to make use of as you attempt to beat the dealer.
