The revenge of the nerds — card counters take Vegas

2008-05-25 00:00

BLACKJACK (or 21) is a simple card game, the world’s most popular, the game people play in casinos. The player who gets closest to a score of 21 wins, otherwise the dealer does. The house always wins eventually, but it is possible to beat the odds by remembering what cards have already come up, if you have a system of keeping track that can evade detection.

The prof runs a team who beat the Vegas odds for him. So the nerd who doesn’t know how to get a girl is lured into the group, which has two girls and two other boys. Some count the cards, others play for high stakes and everybody wins, especially the professor, who takes the control of a teacher to new levels. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
