THE ADVANTAGE OF BLACKJACK TEAMS
By Henry Tamburin
Henry Tamburin has been an advantage blackjack player for some 30+ years. During this time he also has taught more players how to be successful at card counting in his courses and seminars then any other instructor living or deceased. He currently teaches Speed Count in weekend classes, edits/publishes this newsletter, runs a book publishing company with his wife Linda, and writes the Total 21 column and Blackjack Magic columns for Casino Player and Midwest Gaming & Travel magazines respectively. He is a prolific writer with over 800 published articles, and a dynamic speaker that motivates his audiences. He also teaches advantage video poker classes in Las Vegas. After all these years, he still enjoys playing blackjack mostly in casinos in Las Vegas and Mississippi.
What are Blackjack Teams?
Blackjack teams consist of a group of skilled card counters. These are players who use a system to keep track of the cards that are played so they know when the odds shift from player to dealer and vice versa. When the odds favor the dealer, the counter bets small. When the odds shift in his favor, he makes larger bets. By always betting this way, a card counter has about a 1% mathematical advantage over the casino, which means in the long run, he will win more money then lose. The trick, however, is that counters must disguise their betting skills from the ever present eye of floor supervisors, who get in the nasty habit of barring these skilled players from playing in their casino.
When a group of card counters form a team, they pool their individual bankrolls into one large bankroll (known as a joint bank). So what’s the big deal about combining bankrolls, you ask? Essentially every player on the team can now use this one combined large bankroll as if it were his individual bankroll. This in turn allows the team players to bet larger amounts of money with the same risk compared to playing solo. And the greater amount of money that a card counter can get on the table, the more money he stands to win. This is what makes blackjack teams so attractive.
