Phil Ivey Beats the casino for over 20 million Dollars playing Baccarat

I love this question, because I know this is the sexy part people want to know about. Then there is the time-tested "I'm new to blackjack" shtick. But in reality he could have counted cards as just a random silly dude. Don't make me do this again. In Nevada, a casino can still technically ask card counters to kindly get the hell out and, if they don't mind, go slowly fuck themselves with a cactus. Click the Facebook 'share' button to wizen them up. That's why movies like 21 exist -- we love the idea of a bunch of smart people defying the odds, as well as the thugs waiting to beat the shit out of them if they get caught. Well, the goal of blackjack is simple enough: you bet the dealer that, using the cards you're dealt one at a time, you can get a score as close to 21 as possible without going over. Warner Bros. Because casinos are just like popular girls in high school: completely obsessed with their reputation. Continue as Guest.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} You can get rich from it only in the same way that opening a carpet store may one day make you a millionaire. Have a fascinating story or life experience to share with Cracked? By counting cards, I usually gave myself a 1 percent advantage over the house. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Thanks for connecting! If you're not familiar with the rules of blackjack, it's probably not totally clear what they're doing. I have no son. It doesn't work like that. Casinos get rich off of a single, shared fantasy: that you will be the one who walks in and beats the house at their own game. The movies imply that the second you use your brain to calculate the odds of getting the card you want, you are essentially committing the unlawful crime of illegalness known as card counting. I never actually drank on the job alcohol does not improve your math skills, it turns out but who says you can't fill a beer bottle with water and then slur some words? Simply put, counting cards is little more than high-speed, basic arithmetic that almost anyone can master. I got a feeling. Not bad, but I doubt Hollywood will be breaking down my door anytime soon for the film rights to my story. The movies make it clear: you have to be a genius to do it, and you have to be an even bigger genius to not get caught. So, imagine you and I are playing a hand, and you end up with, say, a 7 and a 10, and I have 3, 8, and 9. This method is called the Hi-Lo system , and though it isn't the only method out there, it does accurately represent the essence of most card counting systems: simple, rapid-fire adding and subtracting. It's played for laughs, but for the wrong reason -- the joke is that this random silly dude turns out to be a math genius. And besides, if a guy like me wins for a while, it will make the table appear "hot," luring in the inexperienced players who will proceed to dump way more money into the place than anything I've taken from them which probably amounts to 1 percent of the kidnapping and assault settlement that Sturgess' character would've gotten in real life. You deduct a point for cards 10 through ace. It's not like you're distracting the dealer and then reaching over to swap out his deck with one you had hidden in your sleeve. Even if you have a solid system, it's still a gambling game and you won't win every session, so a suitable bankroll protects you from the inevitable swings. The dealer has a 3, a 4, and a queen. That's it. Message us here. Whenever I would make an apparently risky move at the tables, I would try to act as if I was waaay out of my depth, biting my nails and saying stuff like: "Oh, I know I shouldn't, but I really want to! After all, couldn't anyone get accused of it, since it's a crime committed entirely inside your head? And, holy shit, doesn't that just scare you off card counting forever? Besides, isn't learning a little math totally worth it for the chance to take casinos for millions of dollars and retire at age 20 to a private island in the Pacific? So, wait, am I saying that counting cards at blackjack is That's exactly what I'm saying. The non-cheaters would be just as scared of the place. Sometimes, I would see a dealer signal a suspicion to his supervisor who would then just shrug and do nothing. You can get a lot out of blackjack only if you first put a lot into it. Same thing. You start off with 0, and for each 2 through 6 card that comes on the table, you add a point to the count. It might all seem overwhelming in the beginning, but trust me, anyone can flip through a deck of cards and learn to keep a count, and rote memorization of a deviation chart is no more complicated than memorizing multiplication tables in second grade. So I already fit a certain profile that the casinos are keeping an eye out for. We deduct two points for your 10 and the dealer's queen, add three points for my 3 and the dealer's , so the score in your head stands at 1. If it got out that a local gambling establishment used hired goons to beat the players up as soon as they won big, everyone would simply stop going there , costing the casino millions. For all its legality, sometimes an overzealous pit boss will kick out a card counter or decide to fuck with them by ordering the dealer to cut the deck in half which nullifies a counter's strategy. In my experience, outside of high-stakes games, the majority of pit bosses tend to be surprisingly lackadaisical about the threat of card counters. And that requires misdirection. Now, if you're asking why an advanced math genius would get into card counting instead of a career in rocket science or something, that brings up another myth Let me step away from hating on 21 for a while and instead hate on The Hangover. Connect to your existing Cracked account if you have one or create a new Cracked username. In reality, no member of the MIT Blackjack Team, or any other card counter outside a Hollywood script, was ever beaten or threatened. The reality of blackjack is decidedly unsexy. Contrary to what you might think, it's not a matter of using your giant brain to calculate the exact odds that the next card out of the deck is going to be an ace -- it's just a matter of keeping a simple score in your head. When you take a thrilling game of chance and turn it into a running series of calculations, well Cezary Jan Strusiewicz is a Cracked columnist and editor. That's why you should always try to convince the casino that the only reason you're winning is because earlier today you sucked off a blonde leprechaun in the middle of a field of four-leaf clovers, and you're just dripping with pure, dumb luck. Cheating in blackjack turns up in a bunch of movies see: Rain Man , The Hangover , and, of course, the aforementioned 21 and it's always done using the same nefarious method: by "counting cards" under the noses of the thugs who patrol the casino floor. This is good news for you, because a positive count means that there are more big cards remaining in the deck. It's actually so easy to imagine, that the writer of the book that 21 was based on did just that -- as in, he completely made that part up. As the number in your head grows, you can start betting more. It's surprisingly similar to taking a shit in that regard. Blackjack can be beaten -- but you have to be willing to grind it out. And then, when I won, the pit bosses would see a dumb bastard who's just gotten lucky and walk away thinking: "We'll get him for 10 times that later. But in places like, say, Atlantic City, banning counters from casinos has been illegal since There is one exception to this rule, though. It's a job that starts out all super fun but soon becomes a tedious monotony consisting mostly of staring at cigarette burns in green felt and dealing with tiresome casino patrons and dealers. That's why I quit -- not because I cashed out and bought my island or because casino thugs dragged me into a back room and took a hammer to my finger bones. However, I didn't have the time or energy to dress like some single businessman with money to burn, nor did I desire to wear the false mustaches some of my colleagues donned no, really. Have a friend who might find the life of a card counter alluring? If you really want to make bank, you have to do what the MIT Blackjack Team did: start out with a small fortune and work in groups. I'd like to buy a vowel! Contact him at c. Pictures I'm guessing Galifianakis doesn't need physics to count his millions every single night. Admittedly, you have to do some other calculations and memorize some tables before you'll be ready to make intelligent increases in your bets, to say nothing of having to learn how to do it under pressure. But you have to understand that this is all about the long run. If the count grows in later hands, you can start betting more, because a higher ratio of big cards increases the player's chances of beating the house and even hitting those tasty blackjacks. When I played blackjack, I was a nerdy, slightly balding grad student, and not a great dresser either. Ah, but wait: what about the rare but still possible big-time win? You're merely trying to calculate which cards are, for lack of a better word, destined to land on the table, and forbidding the players from doing that would be like asking them to bet on a horse race based just on the sound of the horses' names. And if the casino ever catches you doing that, they'll ban you and probably call your mother to tell her what a degenerate criminal she's raised. My theory is that it takes a lot of effort to try to really figure out if someone is counting. However, card counting in American casinos is actually perfectly legal , because -- and this is important -- nothing that a card counter does can in any way alter the outcome of a deal. Don't have an account? United Artists I swear this article wasn't just an excuse to rant against some of the movies I don't like. And that movie does get one thing right: blackjack can be beaten, if you know what you're doing. Remember the scene where Zach Galifianakis' character is counting cards and there are all these equations and calculus variables floating around his head? For 7, 8, and 9, you don't add or subtract anything. There is a scene near the end of 21 where the main character, played by Jim Sturgess, gets caught counting cards and is escorted away from the table by the casino's security chief Columbia Pictures All without making a single blackjack pun, when they could've done so much with "busts," "splits," or "hits. So, I adopted other masks, like "the drunk," making myself look as if I could barely count how many fingers I had, least of all keep a running total in blackjack. I used to be a professional blackjack card counter, and before I got sick of sucking in secondhand smoke at the tables and quit, I learned a few weird things about the art of betting on pictures of numbers and royalty to pay my rent. So the goal is to somehow guess which card you're going to get next. You're almost done.
