Professional blackjack player and strategy creator Andrew Johnson also known as AJ just launched his winning blackjack course at http://www.black-jack-secrets.com
He will be teaching how he has been making a fortune literally robbing the casinos legally for years playing blackjack without the use of the now famous card counting strategies which the casinos combat by banning professional players.
Blackjack has long been considered one of the few games where you, the gambler, can achieve an edge over the casino. For some reason the casinos seem to think that after you have mastered the game of blackjack that you, the honest gambler, needs to be penalized. There are very few blackjack players that have the ability and or desire to become a world class card counter. This select group of very few players now have to hide their identity in order to gamble at a casino, playing their favorite game, blackjack
Law-makers around the world are beginning to agree with casino executives that drastic measures are needed to prevent skilful players from beating the game of blackjack.
Blackjack was derived from the French game vingt-et-un or twenty-one. Until about the mid 1950's, it was believed that the game was a lot like baccarat and the house had the edge because the player played first.
In 1956, a paper was published by Baldwin, Cantey, Maisel, and McDermott in the "Journal of the American Statistical Association" laying out a set of recommendations for the play of the game, these recommendations were very close to today's basic strategy.
The following year, they published a manual for the public with this system of play, but it attracted little interest until, Edward O. Thorp(PhD), saw the paper and understood that there were parts of the game that had been missed in the past. The first being that the composition of the deck changed with each card dealt, also, some combinations of the remaining cards favoured the house and others favoured the players.
In 1962, Dr. Thorp published his now famous book, "Beat the Dealer", which contained a simple yet profound message that decks of cards have memory. Each hand is dependent on the makeup of the deck at that time and by paying attention to the cards already played, the player can almost predict what will be appearing in the deck next.
Andrew Johnson has been playing blackjack as a business for over 10 years. He holds blackjack seminars and schools around the world and January 24th he decided to reveal his personal winning system for beating blackjack.
The newly launched website is called at http://www.black-jack-secrets.com and anyone interested in knowing the insider secrets about the game of blackjack and how to profit from gambling should take a good look because AJ is a legend when it comes to professional blackjack!
