5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great starter card counting book for the basic strategy player 2 janvier 2010
Par Nathan Vinson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I read the reviews that gave this book only 1 star. I'm pretty sure those people either flew through the book, didn't know anything about blackjack before reading the book, or thought they were smart and could master blackjack in a day, or all three. For example, one reviewer says that he/she doesn't know which strategy to employ nor in what order to employ the strategies. Well, I have the book right here. The title of Chapter 6 is "What comes after Basic Strategy?" Well, I guess he skimmed the book so fast that he didn't even bother to look at the chapter titles. All in all, a person needs to be serious about learning and playing blackjack, or in my opinion, already know a little something about basic strategy. At the very least, go sit at some $5 tables and just get comfortable with the table environment. Stay away from continuous shufflers!

I own the book. It's a great starter card counting book. Renzey really lays out the core components of the game and the order content is almost flawless. However, you absolutely must take your time! I knew basic strategy to a "T" before I bought the book. Well, actually the book corrected me in some small details because I didn't know basic strategy changed given the rules of the table (e.g. dealer hits or stands on soft 17). Renzey comments on these variations starting on page 55. Even though I had been playing blackjack for years, I set the book aside right then (obviously keeping it close for reference) and spent at least two weeks mastering each variation! Again, take your time.

I then moved on to advanced plays and then to card counting. I've had the book for over a year and I still practice, practice, practice. I also re-read several key sections in the book. As for learning the KISS Count (Stage I), I again set the book aside and practiced for what I know was at least two months. I practiced until I NEVER messed the count up. Anyway, I decided to stop at the stage 3 KISS Count. I'm still trying to master the surrender deviations. The only part of the book I didn't care for was the explanation of "Board Composition." I did read it thoroughly, but I never practiced it. However, if you want to relax after each time your cards are dealt, this may be the way to go. If you have one of the seven hands discussed, all you have to do is scan the table to see what is out there. You may or may not change your action (e.g. hit instead of stand).

Finally, Renzey suggests reading all the books you can about blackjack. I'm taking that advice and that is why I am on Amazon today.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great student's textbook to improving your game step-by-step 25 novembre 2007
Par BruinSensei - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've written very few reviews on Amazon but I thought it was worth my time to give back to Fred Renzey for his great book, Blackjack Bluebook II.

The fact is, the book reads like a high school textbook and that's a really good thing for people that really want to learn. It progressively starts with the basics, as well as simplest ways to tune your play and gradually evolves to more complex methods, going through more advanced strategy and intermediate modifications of play, all the way to a beginner's count. This evolves to an intermediate count and eventually an advanced count that rivals the capabilities of Hi Opt-II and Zen, all on the same foundation that Renzey started with.

What makes the book different from other books I've read is that:
1) It's readable. The book is almost conversational in nature. It's got just enough proof points in it without going all 'Grosjean' on you. (No offense to the mastermind that James Grosjean - another of my heros - is but I'm not the PhD Mathematician that he is, and I suspect, neither are you if you're reading this)
2) It explains why things are important, what the benefit is in terms of the 'percentage edge' you get with every concept you learn, and it gives you concrete visual examples/scenarios with pictures of hands, and a discussion of each.
3) It's evolutionary. Very rarely have I read a book that allows you to stop in the middle of the book and test your skills downstairs in the casino, then later read some more by the pool and learn additional tactics to evolve your game as you master the book's concepts.

What I also found very useful was the section rehearsing certain key hands versus dealer up-cards. Frankly, I think Fred Renzey should create a card deck of 'difficult hands' and sell them has 'flash cards' to people to learn and practice with. It's frankly better than dealing cards yourself on that Southwest flight into LAS. [grin]

I won't blow too much smoke up anyone's butts though: The section on Hand Interaction is a little much. I understand why he put it in there - after all, it appears to be the most opportunistic way to poach good hands at the table. But it takes a fair amount of balls to 'buy people's hands at the table' and 'fill up someone else's double down'. He advertises it as a differentiator for the book being that I'm sure he's correct that no one else has published much on this topic, but still, I don't consider this to be a real value: There's just too much superstition and too many barriers between players at the table to pull off some of the moves he recommends.

That being said, I think his KISS count is pretty damn cool and although I haven't mastered it and still play with another count, his numerical evidence for the strength of the Advanced version of KISS count relative to Uston or more conventional counts is impressive.

If you doubt the "student's text book" nature of Blackjack Bluebook II, consider that he dedicates a page or two to a list of bulletted 1-2 sentence summaries of every key point he's made at the end of each chapter. The only thing he's missing from making this ia true high school textbook is a "Test Your Knowledge" section where he quizzes you on important concepts after each section. [grin]

Renzey's chapter on "15 hands to play incorrectly to camouflage your intellect" has been invaluable. I've been trespassed from two casinos and drawn heat from the eye more times than I can imagine, and I've recently seen pit bosses "drop me as a concern" when I pulled a couple of these hands like a drunk conventioneer. I was just at the New York New York and I think they even thought I had a computer based on the shake I naturally have in my leg but the moment I doubled down on what looked to be a reckless hand and started to play some of these gems, they started to waive off the black suits.

I carry 3 Blackjack books with me whenever I go on a vacation or to Vegas and this is one of them. I consider Fred Renzey one of the people I would someday like to meet and shake hands with. Thank you for improving my play, Fred. Your book is worth much more than $16.50 on the basis of your authoring skills alone.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book for dispelling the myths and reducing the house edge 1 décembre 2009
Par SAB - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Although I rarely go to the casinos, I went a few times over the past several weeks and was intrigued by the game of blackjack. I'll never be more than a casual player, but even if I play occasionally, I want to know how to decrease the house edge and potentially gain a small edge. Blackjack Bluebook II is a great book for the beginner and intermediate player. Here is why I found it useful:

It dispels myths that many seasoned players believe are true (I have seen this in practice many times at the table, even on my few recent excursions to AC).

If you don't know basic strategy yet, it gives you the proper charts.

For players that know basic strategy, it give you the knowledge to know when to deviate from the strategy to narrow the house edge.

For players that want to try and gain a small edge, it gives you several "counting" techniques... from a very basic one that is easy to implement and give you, I think, about a 0.08% edge--- to full blown systems that could give you around a 0.65-0.70 edge.

What I like about the book is that it move you along from understanding the game, to understanding basic strategy, to improving your game and finally to turning the tables on the house.

One of the things that impressed me was that the book was not full of hype. It didn't lead you to believe that you would make a killing by following these techniques. In fact, it consistantly reminded you that this was a long term strategy to gain a slight edge and was still, in the end, gambling.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 User Friendly 28 février 2006

I found this book very easy to read and understand. Great book for the beginning to intermediate counter. The KISS method is comprised of 3 levels, the first of which is very easy to use. As a beginning counter, I first tried to use the High-Low (H-L) method in Professional Blackjack, by Stanford Wong.

I found - as a beginner - that counting is not an easy chore, especially when in a casino. So, I tried a crash course in the basic version of the KISS method before heading to a casino and found it quite easy to use. It's a great tool for learning to count cards. Since then I have progressed into stage II of the KISS method and am finding it very easy to move forward (although this has only been on a simulator).

The KISS strategy has a couple of things going for it. For one, at the Stage I level you don't need to track nearly as many cards as the H-L, or other methods. Therefore, it's easier to stay on top of the count. And two, you begin your count on a fairly large, positive number. In H-L you're constantly bouncing back and forth across zero, going from negative to positive numbers. Tracking card counts is daunting enough without having to go from negative to postive numbers and back.

Last, it's still a big improvement over playing a basic strategy, as is any card counting methodology. Plus, you can improve your odds even more by progressing to Stages II and III, the latter of which has odds that are as favorable as the H-L.

I recommend this book if you're new to card counting or if you're an intermediate. It's much easier to read than Wong's book, although it's not as thorough. However, there's something to be said about simplicity.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The More I Read It, The More I Like It! 13 septembre 2007
Par KJinNJ - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
When I bought this book several months ago, I read it
and didn't like it much. It seemed to be too bombastic,
with large, bold fonts and other unorthodox styles.
Serious blackjack books should be more scholarly.
After reading a handful of other BJ books, I returned
to Blackjack Bluebook to find some information, and
ended up reading it again. Gee, this isn't a bad book.
Some of this information is pretty good, and up-to-date.
Then while on vacation a couple weeks ago, I took along
a half-dozen BJ books to review, so I could pick a counting
strategy to learn. And Blackjack Bluebook again came in
very handy. Actually, Mr. Renzey's Mentor count is one of
the few counts on my short list to learn.
The best part of this book is that it starts off with the
very basic strategy(don't all BJ books?) and progresses
through easy, moderate, skilled and on to a professional
count. So you can choose how much you want to learn about
BJ, and pick the best method for you to challenge the casinos.
Let's face it, the casinos don't give money away. You have
to earn it. And, Blackjack Bluebook shows you the path to
profitable BJ play.
