... would I become just as good a player after a period of disciplined home study and practice?
hi Michael, what are your views on blackjack training schools such as the blackjack apprenticeship boot camp? Is it worth paying 500 bucks (+ expenses) for this type of tuition or would I become just as good a player after a period of disciplined home study and practice?
I think that is probably a good program, but I don't recommend card counting in general. Even if you do want to learn it, you can easily teach yourself out of a book. I recommend you learn the basics, in particular the plus-minus count, and see how it works for you. If you want to go beyond that, then I would consider BA.
Michael, Iím curious...why donít you recommend card counting in general? Back offs and variance?
That's certainly a big part of it. Also, the advantage is too small. I think there are stronger and easier forms of advantage play out there.
