interview professional blackjack player

So, after I went back to school, I started practicing more and reading. Tommy Hyland: Yeah, it opened earlier that year. Then we met a guy who told us about a new book by Stanford Wong [ Professional Blackjack ]. For twenty years he has trained and tested card counters, then sent them into casinos with piles of money. I know you had to play a five-dollar table back then. Then we met two other counters. We only had the one book as I recall. I lost about four or five hundred dollars and I think that was the last time I did the cards. He was from Ohio, but he stayed at my house for Christmas break. My recollection is we each put in four thousand dollars. Apparently they were pretty bad. It seems like we did this about four or five nights a week for quite a while.

By Richard W. He fully expects them to be truthful when it comes to reporting their wins and losses. I ride a private elevator to a luxury suite. Bowling too. Oh, can I get on your team?

Resorts International was the only casino open. It was pretty confusing. He used to be a pretty good pool shooter. I made money for a while: Thirty dollars a week, or fifty dollars a week, something like that. We were winning. He liked to go to the racetrack a few times a year. We were playing a little backgammon. I think there were other guys doing it, but they were just returning the standard payouts, so I eliminated the competition. He was pestering us, pestering us. Might have flipped by ourselves sometimes. I used to bet on myself in sports a lot, shooting baskets or other games. I started reading them and my roommate and I started practicing. I was beating the game there, but I remember in college the game kind of deteriorated. I gradually got out of playing poker. My roommate stayed at my house for about ten days and he drove down to Atlantic City and back every day. RWM: How old were you when you started playing golf? Tommy Hyland: Seems like the first gambling I ever did might have been a bet on some sports event. So we started practicing, and obviously after a little while we were able to do it ourselves. Tommy Hyland: No, I never really did. Back then it was pretty hard to get barred betting small. We used to golf a lot for money. We just whacked it up each night. Having a team seemed really glamorous to us. I thought you had to be a memory expert to keep the count. What else did we do? We used to each start at the exact same time. Tommy greets me at the door. Arriving at a Las Vegas Strip casino for our interview, I give the front desk the name that Tommy is using this week. I guess we were betting up to a hundred or two hundred at this point. I went down with him two or three times. Basketball, golf, baseball. RWM: At how old? He came on our table and he realized we were counting. I played a lot of poker and I got interested in gambling in general. Tommy Hyland: I think I was about ten or eleven. I got waffled one week and I remember having to sell my pool table. We decided to trust the other two counters. Now we had this massive sixteen-thousand-dollar bankroll. We did this for hours and hours. RWM: Do you remember the first bet you ever made as a kid? We started really firing at them. Then I guess I went down to Atlantic City on and off. He won several thousand dollars. Did you try to get an edge? Just once a month, or something like that. RWM: Did you practice at all? Then we met this annoying guy, Not Too Smart Art. Tommy Hyland: Yeah, but not to a great extent. They each had a few thousand dollars. After all, the casino is paying. I was supposed to be studying political science, but I was on the golf team. I guess he was able to count a little bit, but he won eight out of ten times or nine out of ten. There were a lot of bad debts. We did really well. I played pretty much everything. We used to play for a soda or a dollar or something. They provide him with first class airline tickets and limousine transportation. We usually played at night. Based on what I know now, I was horrible. We used to pitch nickels, dimes, quarters against the brick wall. We also used to pitch coins against the wall at times. I was basically being a bum. The payouts were so bad, I raised them. This cavernous suite with its marble floors and gold fixtures is larger than my home and probably cost more to build. I glance in the bedroom and although huge, it looks like a college dorm room. Tommy Hyland: My Dad gambled but nothing serious. Tommy Hyland: We were way over-betting. I lived about fifty miles from Atlantic City. Tommy Hyland enjoys the high life at the casinos. Then, I remember I got the bright idea of trying to create more business. We were fortunate not to tap out. Books and papers are strewn everywhere, and a battered set of golf clubs occupies the second bed. We just all assumed we were all going to play the same time. I made up my own spreads on high school games. That was when they had early surrender and you had an advantage off the top. Tommy Hyland: Yeah. Tommy Hyland: Yeah, I think we did practice. We both put in a thousand dollars and after several months we had three or four thousand each. I was playing golf and shooting pool and playing cards. He liked to play golf for a dollar or two-dollar Nassau. I said, man, if this guy can win all these times, there might be something to this. RWM: Once you got into high school, did you start betting sports?
