Sorting Edges

Casino Management, Bill Friedman suggests a novel way of getting an edge at Online Blackjack Games. It amounts to sorting edges of Bee cards.

Examine the two ends of the back of a Bee card. Are they identical? In some decks they are, but in others every card in the deck has a leading edge that is easily distinguishable from the trailing edge. Likewise the left edge is different from the right edge. Friedman suggests that as you play at a game with such cards, you align each card so that the backs of the cards have meaning to you.

Though Friedman did not use his system himself, I know a pro who has used it in a casino with good results.

Of course you must be able to get a good look at either the next card to be dealt or the dealer's hole card to use the information in the sorted edges. In hand-held games, most dealers show you neither the back of the pack nor the hole card long enough for you to read the edge. With some dealing-shoes, a person with good eyesight can see the edge of the next card to be dealt.

What Caused the Boom?
The result was an Internet poker boom that has shocked the gaming world and drawn considerable attention outside it. As of this writing, is the world's largest Internet poker room. It typically has 10,000 or more (sometimes a lot more) players playing for real money at any given moment-which means a large multiple of that number of people play there for money occasionally. Roughly three times those numbers play on the site in free games.
