"Gamble like a Pro"
This review perpetuates one common blackjack myth; i.e. that the skill of the other players at the table affect your results.

To quote: <<<<Oddly Blackjack is sort of a team sport, because the cards that one player does, or does not take, affects everyone at the table.>>>>


<<<<<However if you play using the instructions I've given, you've already improved not only your chances of winning, but those of all the people sharing the Blackjack table with you.>>>>>>

This is absolute nonsense, and anyone who has a firm grasp of probability theory, knows it is.

The player sitting in third base impacts the results.

Example dealer has a 4 showing. third base has a 14. On aveage, 50% of the cards left in the deck will break 14, therefore, the odds favor no taking a card. Let the dealer break...and pay the board.

Actully the poster above me is wrong.....
the laws of math are not changed due to one player playing poorly no matter where they sit. Math is math. Some times a poor player will kill the table sometimes they will save it. Only person whos odds they are messing up is their own
