If you have a few minutes and want a good laugh watch the first 6 minutes or so of this video. https://youtu.be/BIK8FoHU0Z8

It's hard to believe people are really gullible enough to believe stuff like this!!

Sorry billyran I'm not sure what you are asking. I would think anyone who was interested enough in blackjack to watch a video like this would also research reliable sources and see what a load of horse crap this guy is selling or maybe at this point giving away.

Damn this is stupid... but I went and read some of the comments. I hope they are fake because my faith in humanity is in question. One example:

Comment: "So you discredit the MIT blackjack team?"
REPLY
Yes I do, it's all 100% nonsense in the extreme, first of all there are virtually no tables whatsoever to count cards on as all are shoes with the deck cut in half. Second of all when there are more face cards in the deck the dealer has an equal chance as you to get a 20 or 21. The idea that you have an advantage by getting a 21 is absurd since that rarely ever happens to begin with. Also if you were to count cards the dealer would see what you're doing very easily and quickly by you upping your bets as the deck dwindles down and you would be caught quickly and easily. Everything you're hearing about the MIT blackjack team is made up nonsense, just as everything you hear from TV and the Media is made up nonsense, the whole point is to put you into a world of illusion and stupidity in order to not only control you but also to send you on the wrong path in life, and they do this with virtually everything, like going to college for instance and having a 150,000 debt. This is the way everything is on a quantum level, it's called The Matrix......"

That escalated quickly towards the end ^_^" I hope he is knowingly just trying to see how far he can push his trolling with people still buying it.
But hey, 327 millions Americans, with the variance in IQ this is to be expected I guess..

Yes there are but this is about the worst I've seen. Discrediting card counting and basic strategy.

Most of them do that, but a bit more subtly... as they know in the end the math proves everything. This guys "catch all" seems to be you can't use a simulation because it's a program and programmers are biased so the results are meaningless. Basically, he's taking trumps approach. Anything that doesn't fit his agenda is "fake news." The comments are literally just this psychopath making 100 different youtube accounts and commenting and praising himself over and over.

I wonder what he'll think of my 3 articles I linked in the comments section...
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

If CC'ing and BS didn't work, us players would've said so many years ago. And casinos wouldn't kick them out.

Find any book by John Scarne from the mid 60s to early 80s and he rips card counting to shreds. Of course, by the late 80s he was claiming to have invented it, but that's just trump being trump. I mean Scarne being Scarne.

There are definitely plenty of those guys and there's no need to preach to the choir over here, but this part though: "This is the way everything is on a quantum level, it's called The Matrix......" This is hilarious
