A player seated at a blackjack table suddenly places a large bet and the dealer calls out “cheques play!” The skill level of the player needs to be established. The usual way to do this is to study the player’s bets and play to determine if he is counting cards. If so, appropriate actions may be taken against the player. However, there are many ways to beat blackjack that have nothing to do with card counting. Among these are shuffle tracking, edge sorting, collusion, card marking and hole-card play. None of these players will be detected by the usual approach.

If you’re looking for me after my retirement from the casino world, here I am.
I am available for expert witness services for gaming and casino related legal cases. I am also available for selective free consulting, interviews and public speaking.
In this blog, I will be sharing some of the odd tidbits in my archive from my days in the casino industry. I may create some new stuff along the way, so stay tuned!
