    I think the crew from M.I.T. would say card counting works. As would many others. And if it was just a myth, the casinos wouldn't be banning people they suspect of doing it.

    And hondo, the casinos have the right to ban anybody at any time. Card counting isn't cheating, but it does reduce the house edge ... especially in single and double deck games. There are also some methods of throwing dice that the casino track. You start winning big amounts at the craps table using Scoblete's methods and the casino might refuse your action.

    All the casinos need to do is to shuffle a new pack of cards each hand to eliminate card counting.

    they tried this in New Jersey with Ken Ustin and there was a big flap about it 25 years ago. A paper I worked at suggested that casinos only allow badly dressed people into their casinos.

    Well excuse the hell out of me for having the skill to win. I'm glad I'm not a gambler. Casinos can blow me if they get pissy about someone winning fair and square.
