5.0 étoiles sur 5 Comment évaluer la "bible" 15 mai 2013
Par Cyril
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
Avant Thorp, le blackjack n'étais qu'un jeu de hasard de casino. Bien sûr ce livre n'est plus actuel (les règles ont changé,...) mais mais tout ceux qui s'intéresse à la question du BJ doivent avoir une place pour ce bouquin qui a une place essentielle dans l'histoire de ce jeu

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The book that started it all! 23 novembre 2002
Par K. Morris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This book started it all. Before this book, only a very few people knew about card counting, and most only had primitive systems. Thorp analyzed the game, ran computer simulations, and devised two effective strategies for beating the casinos at their own games.
Can you run out and use these systems today against the casinos? Sure, but over 30 years have gone by and there are now simpler more effective systems. But if you are naturally gifted at doing complex calculations in your head quickly, I think the 10 count system would still be wickedly effective.
Buy it for the theory and the stories. Then go out and buy a newer book with simpler more modern counting systems.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THE Classic Book On Blackjack 29 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I totally disagree with the other reviewers who say this book is "no longer relevant". It is the definitive guide to Blackjack's "Basic Strategy" plus provides a fascinating historical perspective on how Thorp ran the computer simulations to develop the Basic Strategy and test it in Nevada casinos back in the early '60's. What the other reviewers say is true, that the methods Thorp used (card counting) to make a lot of money back in the '60's no longer work today, but that doesn't diminish the value of the book. The casinos were changing the rules and "shutting down" the big opportunities before Thorp even finished the book. But that isn't the measure of the value of the book (although it is testimony to how powerful Thorps's insights were when first developed).
Everyone playing Blackjack (one deck or out of a shoe) should be playing "Basic Strategy" at a minimum. If you want to implement some other strategy on top of that (changing bet size, card counting, etc. etc.) have at it. But the starting point should be Basic Strategy.
Furthermore, the average recreational Blackjack player should be playing Basic Strategy, but many (most? -- at the cheaper tables anyway) don't as you can observe by sitting down at any Blackjack table.
This book should be read by anyone who wants to play Blackjack.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Still the best! 17 février 2014
Par Terry MacDonald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This is the definitive guide to Blackjack Basic Strategy and the history of card counting. I really don't think there is another book other there with clarity and depth, its not wonder it started a revolution. People who are crazy enough to dismiss this book for its age don't realize how fascinating the history is or how relevant his strategies still are today. In fact, I'm always surprised by how few people at blackjack tables know the basic strategy - although I'm happy to have the advantage.

Thorp's breakthrough insight to casino completely changed the game, and I enjoy reading about him. Just recently someone published an early book of his that looks like a doctoral thesis, which I recommend to fellow number junkies out there. The math that you may miss from Beat the Dealer is all there! Check it out: A Winning Bet in Nevada Baccarat

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Outdated but Interesting 2 mars 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
If you are looking to learn blackjack for the first time or even if you are an intermediate player, I would not recommend this as the book to read. You should read Frank Scoblete's BEST BLACKJACK which teaches a much simpler and easier to learn card counting system. Also, Scoblete's book is a lot more fun. But Thorp is the genius who invented card counting and his book is a must as background.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't Neglect to Read Chapter 10 11 décembre 2011
Par M. Kelson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I would guess that I (along with a friend) were one of the first ones to use Thorpe's card-counting system in Nevada. We bought his first book as soon as it arrived hot of the press in our local book store and were barely old enough to get in a casino at the time. After we bought the book we spent a couple of months practicing and then headed for Nevada and we probably played regularly after that for a couple of years. Then over the years, through the 70s, 80s, and 90s, I would play now and then when my wife and I would go there on vacation.

Because there are easier systems and more efficient systems available now days, Thorpe's book is mostly only useful as historical background and theory, etc. HOWEVER,the following chapter is probably worth its weight in gold for some potential gamblers:

10. How to Spot Cheating

Over the years, from the time I started in the early 60s through the 70s, 80s, and 90s, I found the ability to spot cheating was the most important skill of all. In fact, shortly after first arriving in Las Vegas in the early 60s, I was able to spot a second from 20 or 30 feet away. Then, in later years, just out of curiosity, I created a small chart and card counting system based on a formula I found in Thorpe's "Mathematics of Gambling" that would calculate the probabilities of clumping with multiple decks. Then on one vacation trip, while the wife was playing the slots, I would watch and count and then go to an inconspicuous location and record the results for various tables and casinos. The results were very interesting.

Card counting systems are highly effective, in theory, at winning a lot of money at Blackjack. Note, however, that I said "in theory". If you want to know how effective they are in practice,though, ask yourself why Thorpe actually made almost all of his money from the sale of his book and stock market investing. As I recall, Thorpe even made money at one time as a paid casino consultant, but I doubt if he ever made much money at actually playing the game.
