Casino Card Counting in Blackjack – Virtual session

Casino Card Counting in Blackjack – Virtual session on Zoom Platform – January and February 2021

This virtual presentation is broken into four one-hour (approximate) sessions that will be presented on different dates.  These sessions are as follows:

Session 1 – Understanding Blackjack Basic Strategy – January 21st, 2021 at 3:00pm EST (Noon PST)

Discusses the finer points of “Basic Strategy” and the cost related to error costs by not following basic strategy, explains the calculation behind a blackjack games “Basic House Advantage”, discusses the concept of “Common Strategy”, and how the errors created by not using perfect basic strategy increases the house mathematical edge.

Session 2 – Basics of Card Counting in Blackjack– January 28th, 2021 at 3:00pm EST (Noon PST)

This is the “nuts and bolts” of card counting.  Briefly discusses the mechanics of counting cards, and why professional counters “win in long run”.  Explains how counting relates to determining when “bet more money” and “when to deviate” from basic strategy.

Note: Sessions 1 and 2 will be offered as Free sessions.  These sessions are designed to build a foundation background of card counting for casino floor, management, and surveillance.

Session 3 – Betting Strategies with the Count – February 4th, 2021 TBD

Explains the professional card counter’s strategy for betting necessary to achieve a long-term advantage as well as disguising the counter’s intention through varying bet spread. 

Session 4 – Detecting and Confirming Card Counting – February 11th, 2021 TBD

Strategies casino executives can use to detect professional card counters more effectively and efficiently, and what steps need to be taken to successfully confirm or reject that the suspected player is a professional card counter.

Note: Sessions 3 and 4 are more advanced and will help the attendees better identify actual card counters who are a threat to the casino.  I will charge a fee for these sessions, but it will be quite reasonable when considering the information provided.

Information about the virtual attendance

  1. Anyone wishing to attend will be provided with a Zoom link to the presentation.
  2. When clicking into the Zoom link, you will be required to register (quick process) and sign up for free Zoom (if you are not already signed up).  You need to sign up for Zoom as added session security to prevent intrusions.  If you already have Zoom, I believe you will be asked to sign in first.
  3. The session will run approximately 60-minutes.  You will be able to ask questions via a Q&A icon.
  4. All attendees will have the option to request handouts; in addition, with paid sessions the attendees will be provided with a link to view a recording of the session.
  5. I plan to limit the number of attendees to 50.

I will send out an additional eBlast one week prior to each virtual session.  The eBlast will contain the Zoom link and additional information for that upcoming session.  The Zoom links will change from session to session.  I recommend viewing the presentation on your laptop or desktop computers, but I believe smart phones can be used as well.  For more information, please contact me at
