I last posted exactly (1 year - 1 day) ago. I guess it's time to post. Besides, I want the achievement of posting in the April Fools thread. I hope this is it. :)

The Real MIT Blackjack Mastermind

drivers John Carmack .plan on blackjack (195 comments)

I remember that too.

I found this at this url (at the bottom)
http://doom-ed.com/blog/1998/09

In his 9/8/1998 update it says:

A few of us took a couple days off in vegas this weekend. After about
ten hours at the tables over friday and saturday, I got a tap on the shoulder...

Three men in dark suits introduced themselves and explained that I was welcome
to play any other game in the casino, but I am not allowed to play
blackjack anymore.

Ah well, I guess my blackjack days are over. I was actually down a bit for
the day when they booted me, but I made +$32k over five trips to vegas in the
past two years or so.

I knew I would get kicked out sooner or later, because I don't play "safely".
I sit at the same table for several hours, and I range my bets around 10 to 1.
