People who know about such things say poker is on the wane and blackjack is now the up and coming game to play. That might explain why the Blackjack Institute.com is marketing a series of one-day seminars to learn the inside secrets of the game. In a release, they claim, “To have any chance of ‘beating the house,’ a person must be armed with the proper knowledge and training, which is exactly what two former members of the infamous Massachusetts Institute of Technology blackjack team offer.” The all-day seminar promises to reveal: Why blackjack is beatable; Calculating odds; Analyzing playing conditions; and more. And the cost? A mere $899 per person, with a class size limited (?) to 50. Someone’s gonna walk away with a guaranteed $44,950.
