The way they’re cutting the decks early makes this almost impossible.

Some onoline casinos still offer one deck Blackjack. That’s where you should practice your counting skills.

This used to work well but from what I know they shuffle cards more often nowadays. In the past you could memorize 5 decks but rules are now different

I watchjed that film recently, and it shoudln’t be difficult to do the counting with a little technical help. Surely, though, it can’t be that easy, can it?
