Arnold Snyder's Blackjack Forum--
The Website Run By Professional Gamblers
Since 1981, Arnold Snyder's Blackjack Forum has been the leading trade journal for professional gamblers. Now the tradition continues online.
Blackjack Forum Online exists to help players make money gambling with an advantage. All the information provided here is free.
You will find there is a big difference between the kind of gambling advice you get from professional gamblers, and the kind of advice you get from "experts" who make their money selling systems and books and don't risk their own money at the tables. We would like you to know that you really can make money from gambling, even make gambling your profession, if you choose.
Get the Money
Players who want to know if they could become winning blackjack players should start with A First Year of Card Counting, a realistic and funny account of card counting as a part-time avocation.
Card-counting is not the only way to beat blackjack, but it's the first step toward the advanced strategies professional gamblers use to make a lot of money at the game.
Players who want to start learning how to win at blackjack should start with our Intro to Winning Blackjack section (see links directly below).
If you are considering a career as a professional gambler, we suggest you start with our Blackjack Forum Professional Gambling Library, the largest source of honest professional blackjack, poker and online gambling information on the Web.
Inside you will find articles by Blackjack Hall of Fame members Arnold Snyder, Ken Uston, Stanford Wong, James Grosjean, Max Rubin, Peter Griffin, and Richard W. Munchkin, plus interviews with Tommy Hyland, Al Francesco, Keith Taft, Johnny C., manager of the MIT blackjack team, Darryl Purpose and other great blackjack players who have made gambling history.
There is even info on beating slots, roulette, lotteries and keno in our library.
Free Blackjack Card Counting Systems and Software: The PowerSim Project
For free easy card counting systems, see our complete instructions for the Easy OPP Card Counting System (the easiest system ever developed) and the Easy Red 7 System (a slightly more difficult but also more powerful system).
For a simple but powerful professional-level card counting system (in fact, the count I use myself), see The Hi-Lo Lite.
ETFan has contributed his open source PowerSim blackjack and card counting simulation software. As a blackjack researcher and professional player, ETFan wanted to take simulation software in new directions in order to meet the changed needs of today's blackjack players.
Better tools will mean more money for players.
The programmable PowerSim is also easily modified by players to run new types of simulations. This has led to simulations of the new and innovative OPP Count for beginning players.
Also free: Download free card counting practice software and Sam Case's blackjack card counting strategy index generator directly below. The strategy index generator produces strategy index numbers for any balanced card counting system. You put in the count values and true count method for any counting system you are researching, and the generator will tell you the true count at which to change your playing strategy. ♠
