Over a half century, I had never set foot in a casino. The last time I played some versions of the game 21 was when at the age of twelve when I lost pocket money to older kids. Then one day, my friend told me about his trips to Las Vegas where he played blackjack. I thought to myself, I have always felt lucky and I think I could bet the casino. So, I booked a flight for 3 months ahead to Las Vegas, I bought some books and started reading; I went on-line and started learning; I acquired card-counting software and started practicing; I joined message boards and started lurking.

By the way, you cannot win in the long run by luck alone. By saying, "I have always felt lucky", I meant "I have always been persistent and I know I can learn to beat it." With persistence, and lot of reading, learning and practicing, you can beat the casinos too.

May the counts be with you.
