How To Count Cards In Blackjack: A Guide

Two weekends ago, rather than doing lame Valentine’s Day shit, I went down to Atlantic City and went on a blackjack tear at Caesars in the middle of a tumultuous snowstorm. Blackjack is the shit, though my biggest fuck is not hitting on a soft 17 after doubling. The dealer had a six showing but caught a face and a four. BOO.

Anyway, the folks at Buzzfeed must never want to be invited back into a casino again because they made a video about blackjack card counting. Some of the advice will make you say “no shit,” but most is quite informative if you’re planning on hitting up a single-hand table sometime soon.
