The MIT BlackJack Story

Whether you read the book, Bringing Down the House (written by Ben Mzrich, or seen the movie “21” produced by and acted in Kevin Spacey and Jim Sturgess you’ve likely heard of the MIT Team. Without ruining the book or movie we will discuss some of the happenings at the MIT and Harvard Universities.

It was well known in the mid to late 70’s that MIT had a group of mathematicians, scientists, and human behavior students that decided to take a stab at busting Vegas. There were various groups at both schools, and they competed against one another.

The groups dissipated in the early 80’s with a couple from each team joining forces with a man named Bill Kaplan, he had created a team that was somewhat successful, but soon burned out.

Another guy named JP Massar also known as Mr. M. was deeply involved with the blackjack. He soon joined forces with Bill Kaplan as his team was struggling with different counting techniques and inappropriate betting etc. Massar met up with Kaplan and asked for his opinion on what his team was doing wrong.

Kaplan broke down what the problem was and agreed to create a new team, but the team would need to follow his guidelines. He and Massar played and created the first ‘Bank” of the team. It wasn’t long the team was making between $150-$170 per hour.

Obviously they needed to remain somewhat inconspicuous so they recruited new players as necessary. By the late 80’s they had 30 players involved. The book Busting Vegas better describes the story, whereas the movie ’21’ and the book Bringing Down the House sticks with certain individuals involved.

The story in the movie is also Hollywood-ized as there are some aspects that did not happen. The team really took off in the early 90’s making anywhere from $100,000-$500,000 per trip. The select group began changing their appearances in order to avoid detection.

The main group consisted of Jeff Ma, John Chang, Mike Aponte, Jane Willis, and Laurie Tsao. Once the group hit the tables, each member had a role. Some would be the high rollers, others the degenerate lowlife, the bimbo etc.

Each member had a specific responsibility; they were a signaler, bettor or monitor. Signals included brushing hair out of their face to signal a hot shoe, or leaving for the restroom if things were cold. They also used code words that represented the count, Pool for +8 (eight ball), +9 was Cats (nine lives) etc.

The team or select members were soon figured out, and the rest is history, as casinos began changing the rules adding more decks, using cutoffs etc. The group certainly made millions, and today each has their own story to tell.

Some facts and myths

-None of the team were every beaten up

-Jeff Ma was not spending is tuition at the tables he came from a well to do family

– The group was not all from MIT

-They did not use strippers to cash out money for them.

Avoid the 7 Biggest Mistakes New Craps Players Make

Many new craps players fail to realize that winning is a process. Set forth below are the 7 biggest mistakes made by new craps players.

The first mistake a new craps player makes is to fail to set a goal of how they want to win. Most people who go to Vegas (and the craps table) have the attitude that they will take with so much money and when they lose, they will stop. This is a defeatist attitude. The attitude we have is that we will win so much money and then we will stop. Depending on the size of our bankroll, we will usually set a goal to win $200 per hour. This is discussed by John Patrick in his book Advanced Craps.

The second mistake made by a new craps player is failing to understand the game, i.e., the probabilities for each number being made. Just because you may know how to place a bet, it does not mean you know how to win. Often a new player will start by winning and think it is a simple game. They increase their bet size only to have the table turn cold and lose it all. New craps players must be aware that the game of craps is based on streaks. Sam Graftstein discusses this in detail in his book The Dice Doctor Revised and Expanded.

The third mistake is not having an adequate bankroll. Craps is a game based on streaks. As such, you cannot and will not win on every bet – – you will have loses. Too often a player does not have an adequate bankroll for the size bets he is making or sets an unrealistic goal of how much to win. If you have a $500 bankroll, it is difficult to set a goal to win $1,000. It does happen, but only when people are lucky. When loses do occur, he may not have enough money to make bets and miss out on a hot shooter. Author Frank Scoblette discusses this in his book Beat the Craps out of the Casinos.

The fourth mistake is drinking while playing. If you are going to play craps, then you can either play to have fun or play to win. It is difficult to do both. New craps players sometimes get intrigued with the free booze and drink too much to concentrate on what they are doing. I have friends who travel to Vegas with grandiose ideas of winning big. I have heard them discuss that one or several of them were doing well until they started drinking. If you are going to drink and party – – wait until after you have left the craps table, not during.

The fifth mistake made by many new players is lacking discipline. Many new players will press their bets when they are winning. While this may work some of the time, too often the new player will have a lot of money on the table when the dreaded 7 appears. You need to take some of your winnings off the table. Sam Graftstein discusses this in detail in his book The Dice Doctor Revised and Expanded.

I was dealing craps for an entertainment company at a private residence for a person’s surprise birthday party. One of the players was setting the dice. Apparently he took lessons on how to be a precision shooter from Beau Parker, a/k/a Dice Coach. At first he was having long rolls and doing extremely well (Beau is an excellent teacher on how to set and influence the dice). This person, however, kept pressing his bets. He rarely took his winnings down. I asked him why he left his winnings on the table because I know personally that Dice Coach does not follow that betting strategy. His explanation was that he kept his bets up until he had a feeling. Within a short time he lost his entire “bankroll.” Good thing he was playing with pretend money instead of real money. Had he had any semblance of a betting strategy he would have done quite well.

The sixth mistake made by new players is not paying attention. New players tend to forget the bets they make, where the dealer placed their bets and also to pick up their winnings. If you forget to pick up your winnings it is considered a bet. The casinos’ policy is “if it lays, it plays.” At a crowded table, the game of craps moves quickly.

The seventh mistake made by new craps players is to believe that a craps system will work. While all systems work some of the time, none work all of the time. So be careful at the tables. You never know if the system will work for hours, days or even longer.

Baccarat Card Game in Cinematography

Baccarat casino game and all its variants are played and loved all over the world today. That is why it is not surprising that this game feels itself straitened in land-based casinos and it starts finding new fields to show itself. Cinematography has become the perfect basement for this goal: many films can be found today where baccarat is noticed being one of the main actors. It is possible to find in about 20 films which introduce baccarat but everybody definitely knows just the most popular of them.

Casino Royale

James Bond was a big fan of baccarat game and played it in almost all films about Agent 007; for example, baccarat can be met in such movies as Dr. No, Golden Eye, For Your Eyes Only. But the main one is still Casino Royale of 1967 where baccarat plays the main role during the whole film. Casino Royale was a parody on the original book of Ian Fleming (Casino Royale of 2006 showed James Bond being the admirer of poker just because this game was very popular then).

A Hard Day’s Night

This is the film of 1964 where the world-famous band The Beatles played main roles. A Hard Day’s Night tells about some days from The Beatles’ life when they came to London from their native Liverpool to take part in the TV show and give a concert there. A lot of funny and curious situations happened to them there and we have an opportunity to observe them. One of the situations was connected with John Lennon’s grandfather: he came to the casino to play baccarat though did not know the rules at all but was able to win a rather big sum of money.

Rush Hour 3

The films of Jackie Chan are always interesting and funny to watch. He is one of baccarat admirers by himself and this fact is easy to see in some of his films where he uses the game for some curious situations. The famous movie Rush Hour 3 is not an exception: one of the scenes shows us Chris Tucker who comes to a casino and joins baccarat table in order to seduce a beautiful lady. But he does not know the rules of baccarat and considers his hand of 3 Kings being a winning one though it means zero and his total loss.
