Card counting.

Does anyone know anyone that can do this? I don't but I do remember when I was younger I could pretty much remember which cards had been played already.

That seemed pretty easy if you are playing with a single deck of cards. I mean there are only 4 of each card and 2 each of either red or black.

It just helps you to know the odds of getting the card that you need in any case.

I know that casinos don't like people who have any kind of edge on them. They seem to like to keep their money.

Well anyway my point is that it isn't always cheating sometimes it may just be a natural gift. Either way I don't stress it especially when your playing video poker. The odds are your not gonna be able to figure out anything. LOL

Re: Card counting.

I know of only one person who is able to do this, but he does not gamble at all. Heck he won't even play bingo.

It is amazing to watch him in action at home though. If he were to go into a casino I know he could walk away with a good bit of cash in his pocket, but he refuses to do so even in these trying times.

He is a hard worker and believes that money should be earned. Yeah he is an older gentleman and has some strong beliefs in life. I am proud of him for sticking to his beliefs, though personally I think if I had that gift, I would be using it in casinos!!
