Wow that's pretty cool- guess josh will be charging soon for the forum here.... Lol
I actually would prefer it .... I think



A paid forum would be awesome, there will be less posts there but better content. Although I don't get enough betting systems, still looking for that one that will make me millions.

I'm not a member there, but doesn't the site kind of need a highly reputable Blackjack Expert front man to help keep the current members and gain new ones?

There is still a pretty good population of respected APs that hang out there. Not to mention HOFers/authors like Don Schlesinger.

There may be an exodus following the sale, but I wouldn't bet on it. Remains to be seen how the regulars over there will take it. Given the outrage from some APs when the Wiz sold this site, who knows. AxiomOfChoice left and remains gone. IBYA left and then came back. KJ said he considered bailing, stuck around, and is now embroiled in the current drama unrelated to the site owner. 1BB gone due to factors related to the sale, but may have happened anyway.

I have to google JC to find out more about the young guy. How have he done so well for a 30ish Chinese guy? What makes him smart?

Here are what I've found:

1). He's a superman in climbing role.


2) The owner of several dot-coms, i.e. Wizard's websites, Wong's websites, latestcasinobonuses, gamesandcasino, etc...

3) He looks like a movie star...


4) EEgaming did an interview on JC...

I'm still attempting to find his resume on LinkedIn.com...

I'm OK with Corps which pick and choose clienteles. Both insurance companies and casinos have the right to pick and choose customers. They may keep profitable ones and kicked out the rest. But, I'm not OK with a casino supervisor who says counting cards... is like stealing food from a buffet (a foodlifting offense), or video-taping a movie in a cinema (a piracy offense).

Interesting. Thanks.

Joshua looks like someone with great strategic acquisition ability.

Would be interesting to see what he is going to do and let this evolve.

My guess is he will modernize the software at bj21.com, while maintaining the existing board in archive, read-only form.

It's been discussed ad nauseam for probably more than a decade over there, but never implemented. My theory is Wong never pulled the trigger due to the entrenched members who didn't want it to change...since a bunch of them will probably bail anyway, maybe now is time to do it!

IMO just the archive of GC posts is worth a couple of years subscription to a new card counter.

Cool. I was never a member there and hardly visit that site. But from what I remember it is in an old hard to navigate format.

There are pros and cons. I actually used to really like that format. When you reply to a post, it's unambiguous to whom you are replying, since the discussions are "threaded" - each post is explicitly in response to another post. The first internet forum I ever participated on used it.

Part of me suspects that I only grew to dislike it due to the prevalence and take-over of this kind of forum, where every thread is just a big list of posts and you have to quote to indicate to whom you are replying. But who knows.

Seems D.O.A., not nearly the activity going on as when Alan moderated it.
