What is the current situation in the war between players and counters? Is there anyone to look up to? Blackjack is still very popular despite the many changes made to the game and the actions of the casinos players. Edward Thorp once again deserves our gratitude.
We live in the Internet age. Internet technology has made it possible for everyone to communicate with the blackjack stars, which Uston did at that time.
Peter Griffin – Peter Griffin was a brilliant mathematician and blackjack theory developer. He is now deceased. Griffin is the most cited blackjack expert. Arnold Snider, a well-known player and strategy developer, has numerous books. An excellent man with a great sense of humor and a brilliant soul. Stanford Wong was a reserved, introverted man who was always against the casino. Don Schlesinger was able to explain blackjack’s most complex details in simple and understandable language.
There are so many websites that allow you to meet world-class players and ask any questions you wish. Many questions remain unanswered.
Many books were unique. New systems and techniques are constantly being developed. Each day, thousands of questions are asked and answered on gambling forums. The players are becoming more intelligent, educated and better prepared. Blackjack can still be won, despite the obvious decline in rules.
Paranoia is becoming more common in casinos for “Advantageous” casino players. All these actions are not American. The casinos have not understood that they are cutting themselves throats for half a century of struggle. Blackjack is a great game that can bring in a lot of money. Casinos are not at risk if more than 1% of the world’s players play blackjack. Casinos are trying to save every dollar by spending millions on the latest computer technologies, programs for personal identification, and computer databases. They are also creating new tools for combating the counters. The legal limits and moral-ethical norms are frequently abused.
What does the future hold for an ordinary counter? So far, there are only two opposing opinions.
The dark one:
The game will be overthrown by technology. Casinos will create some electronic tricks that won’t allow professional players to gain an edge. Blackjack will become another slot machine. The casinos will poach all the players, and all blacklists will be merged into one common list. The game of advantage will also cease to exist.
The optimist one:
“What one person has created, the other can easily demolish.” Blackjack can’t escape it!
First, players will continue to create new things in response to changes in the game. A person can’t create something new that isn’t overdone by another. The second reason casinos make so much money is because they believe blackjack can be won. Casinos will lose their money if they turn this intellectual game into a fight with stupid slots-machine.
I believe that the human mind will prevail. Therefore, let the battle between players and casinos continue for all eternity. Let each side try to outwit the other. This struggle should not be bitter but fair and respectful of the other.
