The Speed Count, used as suggested, captures about 75% of the accuracy of more complicated counting systems. It is very simple. It is the first system I've been able to execute in a casino and actually use, after having read many books on counting methods over the past 5 years. The system lets you know when to increase your bet and when a shoe has gone so bad south that you should actually stop playing. I would encourage you to buy this book and learn the method, if like me, you are interested in playing more profitably but don't have the time or inclination to spend 100+ hours learning hi-lo or another counting method. I'm not a pro--I visit local casinos every couple months. This system works for players like me.
I learned Speed Count, the counting method in this book, in about 5 hours and in the 6 months I have used Speed Count I have won some huge amounts of money!
I have tried other counting methods but I couldn't walk into a casino and use them becasue I didn't feel confident in them becasue they were so hard to learn. As the author states, "a 12 year old can learn Speed Count" and it is true. It is so simple to learn!
A must for anyone that wants to beat blackjack by learning card counting which is the only way to beat blackjack, and wants to learn card counting in an easy and simple way!
With humor and style, Scoblete lays out a simple, easy-to-apply system that'll give one a bare edge against the house. It won't make you rich unless you bet like you're already rich, but it will let you play for hours and make a few bucks instead of gilding the casino's ceiling.
That all assumes, however, that you're playing in a casino that doesn't treats its guests like rubes. Unfortunately, the strip in Vegas no longer has any such casinos. This book explains that there simply is no way to hold your own, much less win, if the house uses continuous shuffle machines, pays 6-to-5 on blackjack, or limits splits and double-downs. These days, it's hard to find a table on the strip with reasonable rules unless you're willing to play at a $25 table ($50 Fri and Sat nights).
I played craps on the strip and saved my BJ money for downtown, where you can still find some decent tables.
