  • When Casinos do it Right
    We often sneer at casino ineptitude, eager to point out amongst ourselves instances in which casinos took excessive, misdirected, or just plain absurd actions as a response to suspected advantage play. Sometimes it’s a way to add some levity to a sometimes grueling and frequently stressful occupation, and sometimes it’s... Read more »
  • Planning for Retirement, AP-Style
    The following is a guest contribution by Jack Sparrow, a long-time professional advantage player and friend of AP Street. First, let’s start with a disclaimer. I am not a tax attorney and this blog should not be construed as professional guidance. I’m just an AP with an eye on the... Read more »
  • My Road to Advantage Play
    If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re in a similar position to mine years ago. You may have learned to count cards, browse some blackjack forums, and maybe even spread a little at your local casino. But you’ve never taken the plunge into full time play, or moved... Read more »
  • Look the Part
    It pays to do a little market research. If you were going into business in the traditional sense, you would hopefully research your target demographic and see what they’re buying, so to speak. In order to reach your potential customers most effectively, you have to give them what they want,... Read more »
  • More on Eavesdropping
    On my recent Gambling With an Edge appearance, Richard, Bob, and I talked about Blake’s article on eavesdropping.

  • What’s in it for me?
    For purely selfish reasons, I’ve done as folks like us do, and I’ve made an EV evaluation of contributing to this site.

  • Money and International Travel
    While traveling within the U.S., no cash declaration is necessary, so no matter what amount of money you have on you, there’s no need to inform anyone. Of course, when traveling internationally this is not the case, so it’s absolutely crucial for traveling APs to make sure they understand the... Read more »
  • Handling Mispays
    To many advantage players, mispays are an important part of their bottom line. Even to a blackjack player employing basic strategy, a single paid hand that should have lost represents a small advantage over the house for a full hour of play. To an AP who already has an edge... Read more »
  • Staying Connected While Abroad
    Over the past couple of months, I’ve left the country twice for work. Being without internet and phone is not an option for me, so I’m forced to plan ahead in these situations; otherwise, I’ll rack up a huge phone bill due to roaming. During these trips abroad, I’ve used... Read more »
