I saw that show about the token counterfeiter and it blew my mind.  Had he not gotten so sloppy, he could have made a mint (literally).

Kermit:  The cheating you describe in blackjack is not cheating.  It is card counting.  I believe a New Jersey court ruled in favor of players because you are doing nothing to alter the deck or the outcome of the game.  Casinos aren't in the losing money business, so they ban people that they believe are card counters.  If you want to read more about it, pick up the book "Conversations with Gambling Wizards" by Richard Munchkin.

Sounds like too much work and expertise needed for me.  I'll stick to trying to (cheat) chips out of everyone at the poker tables. :lol:
