I haven't posted in a very long time, so please excuse me for popping in to promote something, but I think it's on-topic and would be appreciated by a lot of members of this forum. A friend (Lee Jensen, winner of the 2016 Blackjack Ball Grosjean Cup and subsequent guest on Gambling With an Edge) has set up a new blog that launched today, and it will feature a wide range of topics for beginners, intermediate players, and even seasoned pros. I've read a lot of the content scheduled to be posted and I can vouch that it's quality stuff.

The first post is just an introduction to the concept of advantage play, while upcoming posts range from differentiating dangerous casino heat from simple sweating, saving money on hotel rooms using Priceline Express Deals while actively picking specific hotels, making judgment calls on showing ID in a casino, and a variety of other topics.

The site is APStreet.com. It only has one post right now, but it will be updated daily this weekend, followed by 3x/week updates after that. Check it out and shoot Lee some feedback, if you'd like!

I am just a beginner BJ player of 6 months, and recently had my first experience card-counting. Perhaps the more experienced WoV members will add comments too. Your introduction to the APStreet blog was appealing and promising. However, for me, I thought your initial article left much to be desired. Good luck, anyway!

I don t know where he wants to go with the site or what his long-term goal is. AP street sounds like AP heat.

Anyways I do like where he was going when he said this.

"AP Street is a collection of advantage play-related insight from me, as well as from other professionals I have met in my career. I want to share this insight with the AP community at large because I believe that “bad” APs or new APs with bad habits cost all advantage players money in the long run"

TMI also cost all advantage players money in the long run.

I'll read for awhile but am not hopeful
there will be anything most of us don't
already know. If they post a pic of Axel,
that would be something we could use.
We could follow him around with a
notebook.

Feedback is always appreciated, and there's a comment section on each post. To be clear, this is not an article that I wrote—the author is Lee Jensen, who is the owner of the blog. Keep checking back, and I'm sure you'll find plenty of interesting things. I'm a full-time professional player and can vouch for the material that's slated to run in the site this month (I was involved in the editing).

You don't need to tell me! Anyway, I can't speak for Lee, but I know he's very careful about what he does and doesn't talk about. The truly valuable stuff I've seen written for this blog is not of the "here's how you read hole cards" variety.

I've met many long-time, wildly successful APs and am fortunate to call many of them my friends. None of them know everything already, and in fact, that's one of the reasons that they've become so successful.

Funny funny stuff. I guess APSheet was taken. Go for it, I say! Publish all the good stuff I don't know because I'm on the wrong side of the tables. I may be out of the business now but that doesn't mean I have lost my curiosity. Looking forward to reading it.

I don't understand why APHeat is merged into a terrible conglomerate/composite website. I find other articles/authors on the new website dubious; it really cheapens the more scholarly written article on APHeat. Even if you only add new article once a year, it is still better stand alone. Like discountgambling.
Pretty sure you can raise enough money by crowd funding / donation for web hosting cost.

If I had to guess, he got pied handsomely to do that.
