tournament blackjack players in the world. If you've watched any

You've Got Heat
What's it like to play with a real edge over the casinos? What's it
like to be a David to the casinos' Goliath? Want to know what it feels
like to kill the big, bad casino monster? Then meet Barfarkel, an
advantage blackjack player. Barfarkel began his playing career as a low
stakes card counter with a mere $2,000 bankroll. Barfarkel's goal was
to win enough money at blackjack to increase his bankroll five times,
while simultaneously taking advantage of all the freebies that Vegas
offers its valued players. This book will show you how skilled
blackjack players beat the casinos; the tricks they use to avoid
detection; how they operate in teams; how the underground community of
advantage players helps one another pluck the gold tooth from the
casino dragon. If you want to be on the inside of advantage play, then
take a look inside. It's all in this book!
