To any card counter...novice needs advices

Posted by S on 9 March 2003, at 1:55 p.m.


to anybody: I just read my first book on blackjack, Twenty-first Century Blackjack, by Walter Thomason, who advocate progressive betting with quit points, and after this reading I came to the logical conclusion that both flat betting and progressive betting will make you loose money in the run, whatever Mr. Thomason's arguments might be.
I also intuitively think that card couting is logically supposed to make you win money in the long run. The problem that I saw with card counting was that it was "illegal", and thus you were highly subject to casino harassment. BUT I learned yesterday that here in Montreal it is illegal for the casino to kick you out, even if they're 100% sure that you're a skilled card counter. THUS, since I love the game of bj, have much free time, and have no doubts about my intellectual skills, I'm seriously considering to give card counting a try.
So, I have a couple of questions:
1) What book(s) on card counting would you recommand?
2) What is the minimum bankroll required to test the system?
3) Do you really think that card counting is a good way to earn money on a part-time basis (after all I'm a full-time student)?

Please if you have any other advice, I would very much appreciate any clues you might give me.

Thank you
