Nassim Taleb did the foreword for this book and if you are interested you can read it here.  Early reviews of the book appear excellent and I am looking forward to reading it.  You can pre-order this book on Amazon.

Historical Events and Quotes

Announcing the Blackjack Review Network
historical event and quotation database.

Every day that you visit the Blackjack Review Network web site you are greeted with a historical event and/or quote of the day. 

My goal is to have a relevant event and/or quote for each day of the year.   Relevant means the event or quote should be blackjack or gambling related or support our motto “Gaining an edge in cards and life!

Review our two databases:

… and tell me what you think.  Suggestions for new events and quotes are always welcome.  

Events should have an “exact” date (month, day, year) associated with them.  Also, if possible, tell me the source of this fact. Ideas include:

  • Births and deaths of notable figures
  • Casino openings and closings
  • Legal events and gambling laws
  • Article and book publishing dates
  • Big team losses or wins
  • Casino heists
  • Blackjack tournaments
  • Barrings
  • Interviews
  • Awards
  • Website start dates
  • Blackjack Ball events

Blackjack Review Network Progress Update

Blackjack Review Network

Considerable progress has been made updating the Blackjack Review Network site at http://www.bjrnet.com and http://www.blackjackreview.com.  The entire site is going through an overhaul which means everything is being updated.  I am working 12-15 hours every day on this project.  My completion estimate is the end of August for phase 1. 

The Encyclopedia of Casino Twenty-One is also finally being updated.  Lots of new blackjack terms, strategies, authors, books, software, videos and web sites to consider.

If you would like to be a contributor to this site please email me at editor@bjrnet.com.  I am only interested in responsible people who are serious about the game and understands what “positive expectation” is.

Who has the biggest blackjack book collection?

I’ve been collecting blackjack books since the early 1980s.  It’s pretty intensive but I am sure it is not the largest.  If your collection is larger I would love to hear your comments.  I recently did some organizing in my office and found a few duplicate books – which you can check out on my Amazon Marketplace account at https://www.amazon.com/seller/bjrnet .  The photo below is just the corner of my office.  It doesn’t include poker books, blackjack software and my other collections.
