Default 21 number ONE again!

I can't believe it!

This is a potential disaster for us AP's.

I am going on a BJ adventure ( ) in a couple of days so I will soon know what damage has truly been inflicted.

Its not about THE El Cortez, it's about a hotel in Reno. It's an okay movie. It started pretty welll but loses steam halfway thru and becomes quite lackluster at the end.

Default Hmmm

That was an old post by the date

It spoke to the fact that it, the movie, was no.1 for a few weeks running,,much to my dismay.

I actually feared the movie out at that time,,"21",,,and it turned out to be worse than I ever thought. The casino's IMHO became paranoid of young players and everyone thought they could form a team, make a killing etc.

It brought up like a tidal wave the issue of AP play and teams and made a mess,,,a bad thing that movie.

Yes, the movie was made to be entertaining. If the movie were made to be 100% factual, almost the entire audience would have walked out after watching the team members practice for hours and hours. They would be bored to tears watching those kids add 1 / minus 1, then go to Vegas to experience large wins and large losses. Unfortunately, card counting is more work than excitement, and if any movie were factually made about any job, nobody would watch it.

The parts of the movie where the Griffin guy beats up the AP and goes after Mickey is far from being fallacy.

The casino has in their agenda painting CC, AP's as cheats and low lifes so they can do with, to them, as they please. It is a propaganda war that we should also be waging against the casino on various fronts. I am not without plans
