Top critical review
Interesting although already out dated due to technology.
on 8 May 2017
Chosen for me by my book club, the story is quite interesting, but I feel that it is already outdated due to modern technology, face recognition modern CCTV the teams would be caught up with a lot sooner nowadays.
To learn the lengths and procedures a university crowd wage war on the casinos in the 1990s in the USA.
I feel that if you are able to count cards on your own and monitor the game that way there is no question that you are cheating. To have a whole network of people hit the tables doing the counting for a couple of big players and calling them in when the table turns hot ( lots of court cards yet to be plated in the stack) that is a different matter, but casinos seem to manage to make a profit! so I don't feel to sorry for them.
The book ends a bit abruptly for my liking and got a bit repetitive.
