Blackjack History – Losses

RETURN

This section is intended to show player and/or team losses. I doubt if you will see too many entries here. Most blackjack card counters would rather not report those type of events. But occasionally, some do become known. Yes, we know, some of the entries below are not blackjack related. Anyone want to submit a big loss and story? Some interesting casino crimes are shown below though.
