Best Black Jack Books and Guides...


You don’t have to aspire to be a card counter to enjoy Ben Mezrich’s “Bringing down the House”; a fascinating read that tells the tale of MIT students who won millions in Vegas by teaming up at the blackjack tables.  If counting cards is your aspiration however, you’ll learn a lot between the covers of this book from the simple debunking of the myth that counting cards is illegal, (it’s not) to the more complex lessons on how to make money with math.


Your heart will pound as our protagonist goes through airport security with more money than most of us have ever seen taped to his body. This is a great read on the way to Las Vegas that will leave you pumped for all the Vegas adventures awaiting you.  More fun than functional, “Bringing down the House” is a must read.


You can learn the secrets the MIT students employed to win those millions by watching the DVD based on their experiences, “60 Minutes to Winning Blackjack.”  Hosted by Mike Aponte who was the 2004 World Series of Blackjack champion, this blackjack guide gets down to the nitty gritty starting at the basics of blackjack and going all the way to showing you how to count cards like a pro.


For everything blackjack, nothing is more fun and instructional at the same time than “60 Minutes to Winning Blackjack.”


“Blackjack Bluebook ll”, the brand new 2006 edition by Fred Renzey updates the 2003 edition of the book by the same name.  More textbook than entertaining this instruction manual teaches different methods of card counting including the inspirational KISS method.


Interspersed between the winning lessons you’ll find handy tidbits that are perhaps as valuable as an entire chapter of method instructions.  Add in the importance of the other players and the blackjack myths coupled with strategy that starts at the beginning and filters through several levels before showing you how to come out on top and you have one impressive manual.  “Blackjack Bluebook ll” is your guide to winning at blackjack.


“Hit or Stand” is a fun and educational blackjack guide found at the website by the same name.  It is free and different from most online blackjack games in that it scores you not by the amount of “money” that you win but instead by the amount of correct or incorrect decisions you make.


It is especially helpful that when you do make an incorrect decision a little window pops up and tells you not only what you should have done instead but why the decision you made was wrong.  The instructions are not only based on the cards you are dealt but the card the dealer has showing as well.  For example, you wouldn’t always hit or stand on 12 but your decision would be made based on what the dealer is showing.


In this blackjack tutorial not only do you have to decide whether to hit or stand but whether to split or double.  As you will learn, that decision is dependent upon the dealer’s cards as well as your own.


Keep in mind when looking for online blackjack guides that you won’t be able to practice counting cards online as the decks are shuffled after each deal.  However, to practice making the right decisions with various situations, an online guide that will show you your mistakes can be invaluable.


Keep in mind too that while counting cards isn’t illegal, the casinos don’t like it and have the right to ask anyone to leave for any reason.  As you can imagine, many of them have certainly exercised this right when the “eye in the sky” has tipped them off that a player is counting cards and winning.


It is with this knowledge in mind that the MIT students developed a team approach to counting cards whereby they don’t even look at one another when they are working yet are still able to convey the right message to their team-mate.


Discovering the particular strategies for playing and winning blackjack is almost as much fun as the game itself.  These books and guides can be an invaluable resource to both the beginner and veteran blackjack player.
