Book Description

This is a reprint of the famous book, "The Big Player", mentioned on the History Channel and news reports showing how a team of blackjack players made millions of dollars at the expense of Las Vegas Casinos.

The original book accurately explained what Ken Uston and his teams did, but it did not explain exactly how they did it. Thus, the reader of the original book learned little or nothing about how to replicate the experiences of his teams.

Now that Ken is no longer with us, one of the surviving members of his teams reveals for the first time herein exactly how Ken Uston was able to accomplish what he did, including the exact card counting methods used, which are NOT the methods described in "Beat the Dealer", how Ken Uston and his teams managed to avoid detection, the pitfalls and problems they encountered in the casinos and why the team eventually broke up.

The original book has been updated with technical information by team member Roy Hoppe explaining how the team and card counting systems worked. Roy Hoppe is a rated chess master and a professional bridge player. He was a professional blackjack player until he "retired" from the game for reasons explained in this book.

  • Ken Uston on Blackjack
    This book, "Ken Uston on Blackjack", is primarily concerned with the legal efforts Ken made to stop the casinos from banning card counters. Legal actions were brought in his name against the casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, New Jersey to stop them from banning card counters. The end result of these legal actions was that they were unsuccessful in Las Vegas but successful in Atlantic City. The Las Vegas Casinos still can and do ban card counters. The original edition of this book contains almost no information about how to win at Blackjack. Therefore a section has been added to explain what you really want to know, which is how we were able to win some money playing Blackjack.

  • Million Dollar Blackjack
    Million Dollar Blackjack is the second of several books written by Ken Uston on Blackjack. You may wonder why he needed to write several books on the same subject. Was he like a chess grandmaster who publishes accurate analysis but who holds back a few secrets and sets traps for the unwary reader to fall into should he ever face the grandmaster in a tournament game? Most readers probably assumed that they were playing the system described by Edward Thorp in his book 'Beat the Dealer".
