Counting cards isn't math. Even art history majors can count cards (no offense to any art history majors out there but I'm sure you're used to it by now).

Anyway, I really don't mean to be pedantic - just trying to steer people who aced freshman calc away from losing their dog walking money. Too many people think they can beat the system but in the long run nearly everyone loses. And most of those who actually do win do so by dumb luck anyway because they're betting at the wrong limit. It's kind of like poker on TV. It looks so easy when you can see everyone's hole cards.

But if you can do it successfully then more power to you - not like I'm trying to defend the casinos or anything. I just stick to full pay video poker machines with a progressive. A lot easier on the noggin.
