Many people said blackjack was the only game in casino you can win by skills, so I want to know how many of you really made money on it.
After having played black jack seriously for a period of 3 years, overall I lost and gave up. IMHO, black jack is just like other games in casino: luck is much more important than skills. Based on my observation, I rarely saw anybody really win over on it except those who got several lucky hands, cashed out, and then left.
Anybody has any successful and happy experience to share? You don't necessarily need to tell me how you played in details (though you are welcomed to do that )

Card counting. My understanding is that the way to win is to count cards. However, the casinos know this so they make it harder to do it.

My only progress is I lose less and less money on Blackjack.

I think I'm not a very bad card counter. Any card counters out there? Please share your feeling.

Is this real stuff or fictious story? Anyway, team work should be able to achieve better than singles. However, it's hard to form such a team.

As far as I know, it is real.
