Forget what you thought you knew about how to beat the house in blackjack. Counting cards, the hi-lo system, the +1/-1 system—throw them out the window. Scoblete, a prominent gaming writer, entertains as he teaches blackjack players how to get a real edge. Not meant for “ploppies”—those casual players who plop down at a table and hope for the best—this compendium is designed for the by-the-book players who know the rules and follow them to the letter. Tables, charts, and numbers abound, but they aren’t presented in a way to make the book unapproachable but rather to provide basic rules and to demonstrate numerically how the edge is achieved. Scoblete’s style is witty and inviting, which makes him the perfect town crier for promoting Speed Count, the method espoused here. Props are given to Dan Pronovost, who originally came up with the method. Scoblete’s role is to share the good word, and he does so in this fun, easy-to-use resource. --Mary Frances Wilkens
