al francesco blackjack

The guy picked up the dice, and put them back down. Frank Sinatra owned a piece of the place at that time. I saw the croupier give the dice to the guy next to him. He would always take a card out of the deck without his students knowing it. He made more money off his students than he ever did off the casinos. The next day they let us go. He would then deal the same cards that had been played on the hand before. Maybe someone was doing something funny in the game. It took me about five weeks to learn his system, the Ten Count. It was an extremely tough system. I went to the blackjack table and got ten silver dollars. They were trying to get me mad. I played by myself, mostly in Reno and Tahoe. Nobody did anything or said anything. Al Francesco: I called him up because I was using his system. If they had a stiff, when they were ready to play out their hand, they would switch the hole card as they were turning it over. Al Francesco: No, we just did it to spend a few days together. It was small stakes. The student would always end up with the wrong count. I remember going up to Reno and playing with it, but it was a very difficult system. He would teach people how to play, and then he would go to the casinos and point out the people he had taught. We went to Mexico together on a vacation. I had just moved to California when I read the book. I started playing in shortly after I read his book. This is how Al received the five of hearts three times in the same deck. He tried to play and got cheated all the time. Al Francesco: I was in a crap game. I knew that I had to come up with a better way to play. But it was the first time I had ever seen anything like this in a casino. RWM: Were you a gambler before that? I believe it was Noriega who arrested us. Al Francesco: Yes. The dealer was rolling the deck on me, dealing seconds, every cheating move you could imagine. I remember those two times I played without an edge very clearly. Al Francesco: Oh, that was the biggest problem. In I would catch dealer cheating six to eight times every single day. During that time I got the five of hearts three times in one deck. That is what separates the Blackjack Hall-of-Famer from the mere professional gambler. He was a character. Did you go to Vegas just to play? He played both sides, too. I probably only played without an edge twice in my life. I learned that system and started playing blackjack again. Earlier in my life when I was 19 to 21, I gambled in my hometown, Gary, Indiana. I knew that he had switched them. They hit me a couple of times, but nothing really bad. Al Francesco: I was in Lake Tahoe with my brother and sister and her husband. You had to count backwards with a ratio of small cards to large cards. See the Recommended Books page at this Web site. At that time just about any home game had something funny going on. Al Francesco: I had never been to Vegas or Reno. We went to Panama together once and were arrested. I left the table and I walked over to a busy crap table. I ran home to get some more, but by the time I got back the game had broken up. He wanted to give me lessons, but as it turned out I played the game better than he did. I played for about a month, started getting heat again, and stopped playing. So I guess I became a professional gambler back then. Al Francesco: No. I went in there because I wanted to see it first hand. They picked us up and put us in jail. I was just scouting the place, and they spotted me and took me upstairs to a security office. Most of it was at night. I always made money during the day, but at night I got my clock cleaned numerous times. Right away I saw something funny going on. After a year and a half I started getting barred left and right. It was all single-deck at that time. It was a fun trip. I spotted most of the cheating I think, but evidently there were some moves that were beyond me. You had to divide one into the other. I was facing twenty over and over again. Al Francesco: I have always looked for an edge. At least, every other time I thought I had an edge. My brother, who is also a professional gambler, had told me about seeing a guy there get the hell beat out of him by security guards. When they had a ten as an upcard, they had to check their hole card to see if they had a blackjack. He ran the first computer blackjack team, teaching players how to operate hidden microcomputers with their toes. Al Francesco: Ed Thorp gets the credit for that. That ratio would then determine when to hit or stand, and your bet size.

This is the professional gambler who invented the Big Player blackjack team concept and taught Ken Uston how to count cards.

The top card of the deck schedule 1 line 22 their hole card and the original hole al francesco blackjack went to the top of the deck. While we were going upstairs they were tripping me.

I was being hassled too much, so I quit playing. They never did explain why they arrested us. I stopped for about eight years, and then they introduced 4-deck games, and Lawrence Revere came out with the Advanced Point Count. RWM: Did you have problems with them cheating you?

I probably saved the rest of the money I had. It seemed that all the cheaters worked night shift.

They just assumed he had done something wrong. They had barred me before and told me not to come back. What was it like counting cards back then? I guess I was good at it, or else my opponents were extremely bad.

I won just about every time I played. It was a al francesco blackjack. We were killing time waiting for dinner, and my brother was playing blackjack.

I went home and studied some more, and then when I went back I was ready and could keep up with any dealer. That way he could charge them for more lessons. Back then blackjack dealers would switch their hole card. A dealer who cheated would spot a combination of cards that guaranteed the player would lose, place them on the bottom, and then roll the deck over--inverting it. Al Francesco: The first time I counted cards, I got a headache within twenty minutes. I was one of the first people that were really beating the game.
