Hi everyone,

I'm new here and new to Poker too. I was into Blackjack card counting but couldn't seems to find anyone to play/practice with.

Anyway, I look forward to learn a lot more about Poker and join meet up/outings.

Oh wow! BJ Card counting.. surprised to hear my kaki are also into CC.. I recalled those days a small group of our SG card counters were travelling all over casinos in Sri Lanka, Sychelles, Istanbul, Korea, Egypt for game of BJ. Ever hear that our local BJ counters are one of the world's finest?
Likely there is no suitable place now for CC anymore..

Hi Ikelos, thank you for the warm welcome.

Hi PokerChief, how was the stories during those days? Did you guys managed to break the Casino's bank?
What I can figure from some of active BJ forums, it still profitable even with 6 decks in majority of Las Vegas casinos as long as they are not using CSM (Continues Shuffling Machine)

Oh yes, most of us did well n few were black listed in some of the casinos in Egypt, Sri Lanka, Istanbul. There was a time when a group of us BJ counters cleaned out a small resort casino in Turkey with merely a US$25k winnings that night. But the casino has no cash to pay out. We somehow got a cheque instead. Another funny incident was when we were busted in the middle of the game n they actually refused to cash our chips worth US$8k. But eventually after detaining us for 2 hrs, they cash us out and warned us not to let them see us again! Funny thing is we were so warmly welcomed by them and getting VIP's treatments the first few days.

Oh! playing with 6 decks is still profitable. Some of the Malaysian BJ counters played with 8 decks at Genting those days. It will takes alot of waiting time before the deck turns to your favour. We played with 4 decks those days n usually tipped the dealers to cut the deck right to the end.

Hi PokerChief,

That is a fantastic experience. I'm not at that level yet :-)
