Card Counting: Is it Legal?

So what do I do while I'm waiting for the economy to go north? I'm writing a blackjack card counter's story, that's what. It's really a fascinating account with lots of colorful side stories and characters along the way.

The upshot is that while most card counting is either done in large teams or solo, the card counter whose story I'm writing has devised a system for just 2 advantage players. He takes the reader step-by-step through card-counting secrets that no other source has revealed. It will be a new twist on a topic that already has a huge following.

Anyway, I have a couple of questions:

1. Presently card counting is legal. Should it be?

2. Do you believe considerable money can be made counting cards?

Readers, what do you think?

It most certainly should be legal. Card counting is nothing more than using the very same information that is available to all of the players at a table, but processing it more intelligently. Why should card counters be persecuted for using their brains? Should we just shut them off somehow?

The development of online casino has made blackjack players out of millions of online casino users. Card counting is a very notable factor of blackjack. However, it won't provoke a profit all by itself. Blackjack players give card counting too much credit and they have even want some card counting tips, which apparently will make players win more often.

In response to Hot Poker Girls, you're quite right that counting blackjack cards in itself won't "provoke a profit." What card counting does is to increase the odds of the diligent card counter which CAN lead to higher profits.

There are many misconceptions floating around about card counting. It's a highly disciplined activity demanding adherence to a rigid set of rules. There are still many variables involved even when a professional card counter is using all the skills available to him or her.

Thanks for your comment.
