Play Blackjack Like The Pros Book Review

“Play Blackjack Like The Pros” by professional Blackjack player Kevin Blackwood contains everything you need to know in order to become a long term winner at the popular casino game.

Kevin Blackwood has earned a seven-figure sum from playing Blackjack, starting out with just a few hundred dollars. In “Play Blackjack Like The Pros”, Blackwood’s secrets are revealed, demonstrating how it is possible to earn over $10,000 a month.

The book starts with the basics, including the rules of Blackjack, as well as discussion on playing the game at a variety of stakes, both online and in the live casino environment. “Play Blackjack Like The Pros” also features chapters on playing the game with a variety of decks, as well as information about playing tournament Blackjack and taking advantage of online casino promotions.

With the basics out of the way, Blackwood proceeds to explain to the reader his own tried and trusted card counting methods, breaking it down into three categories – the novice player, the recreational player and the professional player. He goes on to teach the reader how to cover up the fact that they are card counting, in order to gain the biggest possible edge (any casino that catches a player counting cards, will almost certainly ask them to stop playing at the Blackjack tables).

“Play Blackjack Like The Pros” features plenty of tables and charts to back up Blackwood’s lessons and the author keeps the language as simple as possible, avoiding the technical terminology employed by many other authors of instructional Blackjack books. In fact, Blackwood’s general style makes for a very easy read and the book contains plenty of real-life anecdotes from the author’s career; many amusing, but many more that contain an educational message.

The book is similar in style to that of “Play Poker Like The Pros”, by ten-time World Series of Poker champion Phil Hellmuth, opting for a series of individual lessons, that are simple to understand for Blackjack players of all capabilities. It also features a foreword by Stanford Wong, widely regarded as the modern day master of Blackjack and card counting.
