For private session, I am located in Southern California, Los Angeles County. The day will be spent teaching you at your pace, and your skill level. Private sessions last up to 8 hour class with breaks in between. We will go through real live scenarios. Using my system you will get to see first hand how you can win and apply what I teach you in Las Vegas!!

Las Vegas Blackjack Weekend: $1495
This is a unique opportunity to spend an entire weekend with me in Las Vegas. The first day of your blackjack weekend will be spent training in-private behind closed doors. Once you feel ready, we will then head into a real casino for some live action! You will have the choice of playing with me or just watching me play. The second day of your blackjack weekend will be spent refreshing your skills in-private, then heading back out into the casinos for more action. This can be customized to fit your needs.

Group Saver: $95/Person
10+ people group. This class includes a Projector/Big Screen. This is less private because there will be less one on one teaching/training. This is done in Southern California.

I sat through the entire video on the first link shown. It was ridiculous. He shouldn't have to charge the players/class attendees at all. The casinos should foot the bill for him giving these classes because it will increase their income at the blackjack tables. It's amazing what people can dream up and then try to pass off to others... for a fee!

I should charge people for a class in which I teach them nothing more than not to get sucked into taking these classes? Add this guy to the list of bogus "systems" that for a fee you can learn to be a worse player than you were before learning the system.

Go to around 4:39. He stands 13 v 8, dealer shows a 6 under so he becomes all happy like he knew what he was doing. Draws a 3 (for 17), yet says he has 16, presumably thinking he would draw to bust out, yet pulls a 4 I love this guy. Even when he's blatantly wrong, he attempts to cheat in order to make it looks like it works, then it backfires.

http://youtu.be/dLfGVuy7Ehs?t=8m45s - "I'm loving that we're losing....I'm loving that we're losing!" A few seconds later at 9:15 in the same video, "Now, I have a 14, I'm gonna stay, especially against an 8....oh, I lose another hand. Isn't that amazing". This guy is comedy gold.

Just remember that if the dealer shows an Ace and you have 16 or less, always take insurance, and then surrender if the dealer doesn't have blackjack. Oh, and never double 11 if the dealer has a 7 or higher showing. It is, of course, a 50/50 shot to double 11 against anything below 7, so that's a personal choice. The same holds true for hitting a 12 vs. 3-5.....it's 50/50, so it's all about how you feel at the time. Finally, remember that you must only split Aces against 4-6. Against any other cards, you're crazy to split them.

It's truly painful to watch. I'm going to have trouble sleeping tonight after watching this, just knowing that this guy is out there.

Did anyone read the comments below the video?

"First couples of years I broke even, but received a lot of french benefits."

Okay, that explains it!

After watching a portion of a couple of these videos, I started stuttering and twitching again. I posted the following in the "comment" section.

"I have viewed a portion of your videos and am at a loss for words. If this is your system, I will make the following offer. I will assume the house position with a bankroll of 50K. The rules of the game are 6Deck ( Zero penetration), DAS, 3:2 BJ, H17, Insurance. Additionally, I will pay for your transportation, room and board. If you are interested, please post a response. BookerPA"

You need to offer surrender as well.

Thanks NAP, I forgot about that key element of "the system". I was just overwhelmed by the simplicity and logic of the system.

I feel like I lost $500 just for watching that video.

I can't watch more than a minute or two of this at a time. What's truly amazing to me is that this guy doesn't even get rule #1 of a con, which is to stack (in this case, literally) the deck in your favor before you show off your "winning system." Instead, he leaves it to chance that he comes out ahead putting a finer point on what an ignorant ass he is.
