    Ken Uston on Blackjack
    The Adventures of the KING of "21"!
    Catalog Code: B0114IS

    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.
