Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am making this post to ask your helps to correct this misinformation by an internet-dictionary:
Definition of Card Counter:
"a casino player who memorizes or records which cards have been played in previous hands in order to calculate the odds on receiving winning cards or combinations from those remaining to be dealt, the practice often being held as illegal."
I emailed the website and asked the webmaster to correct his wrong definition about card counter (See email down below). I'm confident that the webmaster will take corrective action if we all email him our requests for correction. If you like to help, please log onto its contact page:
Please cut & paste my email onto its contact page, and then email it out. Your participation in this action can save an arm or leg of your fellow card counter. Hey you never know if a casino security guard may learn the wrong definition of a card counter and treat us like some illegal cheaters.
With thanks in anticipation
Please correct your wrong definition about a card counter. You have stated that card counter's practice is often being held as ILLEGAL.
Here is your definition of card counter:
"a casino player who memorizes or records which cards have been played in previous hands in order to calculate the odds on receiving winning cards or combinations from those remaining to be dealt, the practice often being held as ILLEGAL."
According to many court cases (see down below), card counter's practice is legal.
Your definition suggests that a card counter often commits an illegal act whenever he counts cards. Your definition is not correct. The practice of counting card is legal. As you can see for yourself, here is a quote from the court case of Campione vs Tropicana Casino: "...Neither the Casino Control Act, N.J.S.A. 5:12-1 to -142 (Act), nor the CCC prohibits card counting..."
For your information and perusal, I provide you with the links that will support my statements above. The linked information should enable you to make the correction about the legality of the card counter's practice.
