4-Minute Video Guide to Card Counting
Back in September 2012, former Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) student and blackjack star Mike Aponte joined the Def Con XX conference in Las Vegas to give the hacking community some priceless tips on how to beat the casinos.
Part of the legendary MIT Blackjack Team that crushed the casinos in Las Vegas from 1979 onwards, Aponte is considered to be one of the greatest blackjack players alive.
Not only he won millions at the felt, but he also took home the first-ever World Series of Blackjack Championship in 2004, when he managed to beat the 25 best blackjack players in the world in a memorable competition held at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
If you are not familiar with Aponte’s incredible story, we suggest you to pick a copy of Bringing Down the House - by far one of the best gambling books ever written - or to fire up Netflix and watch 21.
