This is an easy, but powerful, card counting method to learn. This method can be mastered in very short time under real casino conditions. I would employee Mr. Cardoza's method over the "speed count," made popular by Mr. Scoblete. In my opinion Mr. Cardoza's method rivals all other counts in terms of speed, ease of application and power. It's that good -- I'm truly impressed. There is no filler or fluff in this treatise on blackjack. Just what you need to know. Mr. Cardoza walks you through the steps to take full advantage of the advanced material and how to get there -- it takes practice and discipline to get to advanced play, but its well worth the investment of time and energy. It should be noted that this product does NOT include the basic playing Black Jack strategy, you will need to find and learn that (by heart) in any other of Mr. Cardoza's books on Blackjack.
