    ^^ Usually Mo puts this stuff in a chart for us because he knows that most of us around here are math challenged. Plus, we like pictures.

    Sounds similar to the method used in the movie 21.

    I love Vegas for getting drunk, going to spas, going to shows, and alternating amazing restaurants with killer buffets.

    It's a complete indulgence fit for Bacchus himself.

    Only if he was doing it at tables with a 6 deck shoe. Which I doubt. Probably playing at single deck tables.

    Single decks are pretty hard to come by, aren't they?

    From what I'm reading, he was doing it at multiple blackjack tables, including the "shoe" (six deck) tables, so he's pretty good. Apparently, casinos monitor players like Affleck and then put out messages about them on a common alert system. What seems to have tripped him up, as someone alluded to earlier, is that he moved his money as the decks/cards when from cold to hot. I guess the longer you play, and the more of the decks you use, the more you can calculate probability. It's probably a dead giveaway that Affleck was betting higher during that phase.

    My dad taught us how to count cards in blackjack when we were little...he also taught us how to deal "seconds" and to detect when the dealer is doing so.

    On one of our family vacations my sister noticed a dealer dealing seconds and told my dad, so he told her to tell the manager. Then they asked us to leave. My sister was, like, 8 years old at the time. Gotta love my awesome dad.

    JENNIFER Garner isn’t best pleased with husband Ben Affleck.


    The actress is fed up with Ben’s gambling — and was mortified when he was red-flagged and under investigation by Las Vegas’ biggest casinos for card counting.


    On May 31, Ben was spotted at Caesars Windsor Hotel and Casino in Windsor, Ontario, just 10 minutes from downtown Detroit, where Affleck has been gambling $5,000 hands at the high roller table.


    “Ben walked in and went straight to the card games,” an eyewitness said.


    “His hair was a disaster, and he looked like a mess! He sat down and played for roughly 20 minutes before security heard he was there. They made the dealers stop what they were doing and asked him to leave. Ben seemed pretty mad.”


    Another eyewitness at MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit noticed the 41-year-old on May 24 at 2 p.m. not looking his movie star best.


    “It took me a minute to realize it was Ben Affleck,” a second eyewitness said. “He looked disheveled and upset while sitting there gambling. He seemed really frazzled like he had just lost a ton of money. He was smoking a cigarette and his head was down in his arms. When he sat up his eyes looked bloodshot, like he’d been there all night!”


    Garner is now putting her foot down.


    Jen canceled her trip. She just doesn’t want to be Ben’s enabler or babysitter,” a source said of the family’s intended summer trip to Detroit.


    “She was absolutely mortified about the Las Vegas incident, and everything has really gone downhill since then.


    “She’s completely distraught over Ben’s problems. It’s a never-ending roller coaster.


    “Ben has a compulsive personality. Once he starts gambling, he can’t stop * and he stays up all night, betting thousands, then sleeps all day, which infuriates Jen.


    “He needs to ask for help from someone — and soon.”

    That article is so poorly written.

    I can see her taking the kids to Detroit if he is working there.

    He's been here at least within the last couple of weeks - he was just at one of the Detroit Tigers games. Yep.

    And maybe Ben chose Detroit because it is just a drive over the bridge to Canada, so he could gamble? Kill two birds,....vacay and gamble!
