Welcome to BJ21!

"BJ21 is a meeting place for people willing to study to beat casino games. Many members are blackjack card counters, but BJ21 is also home to players who win at poker, video poker, sports betting, and craps. Members use message boards to swap stories about strategies and current playing conditions in casinos in Las Vegas and elsewhere." --Stanford Wong  - 

Stanford Wong has made a name for himself through books, newsletters, software, and the Internet. Of course he has done his share of winning at gambling games. When he was in graduate school, playing blackjack was his major source of income, and he stayed in school long enough to earn a Ph.D. from Stanford. He published his first book, Professional Blackjack, in 1975 while a student at Stanford. Now he has it made -- a wonderful wife and a comfortable home in La Jolla, one of the garden spots of the world. Their two children are both adults and college graduates. Wong has moved Pi Yee Press to Las Vegas, but is in constant contact electronically from his home. So commuting to work in the morning means strolling down a hallway. Every day he walks along the beach. He is his own boss. Anything that has to be done that he does not feel like doing himself, he hires someone else to do. He could not have a more pleasant life had he chosen to do something other than figuring out how to win money from sportsbooks and casinos. Wong has created a website with message boards: BJ21.com. BJ21.com is devoted to discussion of getting an edge at casino games.

Serious about beating the casinos?
Green Chip Membership is for you.

If you are serious about beating casinos, like to converse about advantage opportunities, and enjoy discussing strategy and current casino information, this is the right site for you.

If you want to broaden your circle to include people willing to discuss real casino winning principles and opportunities, Green Chip is where you should be.

Green Chip message boards, founded by the legendary Stanford Wong and since updated, contain the contributions of the best minds in advantage play. Members of Green Chip trade valuable information and insights that can help your next trip to a casino to be a profitable one.

A membership in Green Chip can pay for itself in one visit to a casino and will return dividends many times over. Find out more about Green Chip Membership.
