One of the greatest challenges for us is navigating the fine line between painting card counting as “easy money” and making it sound like only Rain Man can do it.
Media has portrayed card counting as something that only rocket scientists and MIT wiz kids can learn.
That’s just not true. We had former electricians, writers, housewives, and high school dropouts who each won hundreds of thousands of dollars for our blackjack team.
Mastering card counting takes a fraction of the time it would take to become a professional programmer, doctor, or most any other profession. But on the flip side, almost everyone we train underestimates how much practice it takes to be a successful card counter.

If you think it’s going to be easy, you’re not going to make it. A lot of people ask me, “what does it really take to be a successful card counter?” I want to give my honest opinion. But rather than talk about the technical skills that we’ve already discussed here, let me talk about the type of person that does well as a card counter.
