The fact is that while we may know the basic rules and even a few strategies, we still manage to lose our stakes over and over again. Now, gambling columnist and blackjack expert Mike "Bootlegger" Turner has written the perfect guide to help the average player turn the tables. Bootlegger's Blackjack 101 provides the rules and tools for beating the casinos at their own game. Bootlegger's Blackjack 101 begins by explaining the basics of blackjack. It then analyzes the most effective strategies for increasing your odds of winning. Included are discussions of money management for strategic play, tips for avoiding common pitfalls, and a unique section on using the casinos' promotional money to play. For more passionate players, the book offers simple instructions on the best card counting systems available. Throughout the book, full-color examples of card-hands clarify strategies. If you have no problem giving the casinos your hard-earned wages, this book is not for you. But if you enjoy walking out with the casino's money, as well as your own, Bootlegger's Blackjack 101 is the place to start your winning education.Turner, Mike "Bootlegger" is the author of 'Bootlegger's 200 Proof Blackjack ' with ISBN 9780757000485 and ISBN 0757000487.
