On April 9th, 2008, the well-known Massachusetts blackjack team, whose real life activities inspired the recently made move "21" and the book "Bringing Down the House", lawfully won millions of dollars all over the U.S. The two members of the team are now traveling to different cities in the U.S. to teach interested people who want to learn blackjack. The former manager of the MIT team and the first champion of the world series of blackjack, Michael Aponte and his teammate, David Irvine have announced the dates for their Blackjack Institute Group Seminar where interested people can learn how to play the game correctly.
Aponte said that it is not right that people should think that they could just read a book about card counting and then after that immediately play in Las Vegas casinos because they are just heading for trouble. To have a realistic challenge of edging casinos in their own game, players must really undergo intensive training and armed themselves with the knowledge needed for the game. The sessions that the two will conduct will include discussion regarding the basic card counting technique, how you can correctly estimate what is remaining on the deck, wagering technique, financial management and the selection of the game.
The seminars that will be held this year are 1st, Las Vegas, Nevada, April 19th, 2008(Location to be announced). 2nd, Los Angeles, California, April 26th, 2008(Location to be announced). 3rd, New York, New York, May 3rd, 2008(Location to be announced and 4th, Miami, Florida, June 14th, 2008(Location to be announced). Irvine commented that the training procedure is the same training procedure used by the first mit blackjack team. Interested people do not need to worry if they will understand the lesson because it is really easy to follow.
