BEST BLACKJACK BOOK ON BASIC STRATEGY
Basic Blackjack by Stanford Wong
Presents basic strategy and expected value for almost every unusual rule variation ever offered. Examples of rules covered: no hole card to dealer, doubling down on three or more cards, splitting when there is a bet riding that will go on one hand and not have to be matched with a like bet on the other hand, early surrender, five-card hands can be turned in for a half win, over/under, multiple action, double exposure. Also contains interesting tables, such as: probabilities of final dealer totals by upcard; probability of untied naturals by number of decks; and which hands have a positive expected value, by dealer upcard. This blackjack book also explains how techniques for winning at blackjack without counting cards: tells, warps, front loading, spooking, etc., that first appeared in Winning Without Counting, an out-of-print classic that initially sold for $200 per copy. These are legal methods of getting an edge at blackjack in games where the dealer manually looks under a 10 to see if the hole card is an ace. Most casinos no longer employ this procedure, so this material no longer commands a $200 price tag. But if you happen to discover a casino where the dealer peeks under 10s, be aware that you might be able to employ the methods described in this book to make money quickly. Example: a "tell" is where the dealer's body language involuntarily discloses information about the hole card. Editor note: "If you travel a lot this blackjack book should be a mandatory piece of your arsenal."

BEST BOOK ON ACE PREDICTION, SEQUENCING, AND TRACKING
Blackjack Ace Prediction by David McDowell
The Art of Advanced Location Strategies for the Casino Game of Twenty-One! With a foreword by Michael Dalton. Cover art by Abigail Kamelhair. This blackjack book covers the art of Blackjack Sequencing, a dark art that even very few gambling professionals truly understand, let alone have mastered. The basic method involves memorizing a string of cards hoping that their order will be partially maintained by the shuffle. Under optimal conditions, this can give you an advantage a card counter could only dream of. The method is both completely legal and very difficult to detect. This technique, also known as Ace Prediction, Ace Tracking, Sequence Tracking or Key Carding remained the closely guarded secret of a handful of high-stakes professional blackjack players for more than 20 years. Ace prediction can be extremely profitable given the right conditions. Here it is folks -- the complete scoop on this mathematically valid and proven blackjack winning technique. Sequence trackers will find in this book the author's own formula for identifying the profitable games. The author begins the book by studying all known published references on the subject. Chapter 2 examines aspects of non-random shuffling. Chapter 3 is the author's own analysis of non-random shuffling using a statistical procedure provided by Ed Thorp. Chapter 4 tells how to identify and exploit weaknesses in casino shuffles. Chapter 5 offers practical advice on locating Aces in shuffled decks. Chapter 6 explains how to predict Aces during the game. Chapter 7 deals with the calculation of mathematical expectation using simple formulas. Chapter 8 gives advice on bet sizing, probability of ruin, return and risk. Finally, the tables at the end of the book will be useful for making your own analyses of shuffles. Intermixed in the author's exhaustive presentation are some exciting and fun stories from the pits.

Reality by David H. Morse
David Morse's self-published book was the blackjack book many serious players had either been waiting for or dreading. For the first time ever the closely guarded secret of "signature cards" (also known as "key cards") had been exposed. Morse had finally hit upon a practical phonetic method to remember these cards. Most of this book, however, is not about signature cards. It is about a very personal (David Morse's) method for winning at twenty-one. It is an excellent classic training guide for learning how to count cards (Wong's halves count is used in the discussion) and most of the important technical requirements (including bankroll requirements, bet sizing, standard deviation, estimating your advantage) are presented very well. The book's color charts are very unique and are presented in such a manner that may aid in their memorization.

|Sklansky Talks Blackjack
by David Sklansky
Blackjack is the one casino game where the player can get an edge over the house. This has been known for almost forty years and many good blackjack books have been written on the subject. In spite of this, there are still only a relative handful of people who are taking advantage of this knowledge. Why is that? David Sklansky believes the reason is that most people think expert blackjack play is too hard to learn. They browse through a blackjack book and are struck by the complex charts and tables. Sklanksy realized that these charts were not really needed to show someone how to play an almost perfect game. As a renowned teacher, as well as a professional gambler, Sklansky (already the author of eight books on gambling) has devised a technique that literally "talks" you through everything you need to know to truly "beat" this popular game. Excerpt available.
