Card counting has been around for as long as people have been betting on card games. In the casino industry, it’s usually done in the Blackjack series of games as this is where it becomes the most effective. However, it is quite the talent. The player has to remember large lists of numbers and odds based on the cards left in the deck, plus the exact list of cards that have already been played. All of this needs to be done while continuing to play as if you have the same information as every other player at the table.
