Best way to win at Blackjack
There is a scene in the recently released movie The Gambler where Mark Wahlberg's character bets $500 on his blackjack hand. With a jack of spades and an eight of hearts in front of him, he nods to the dealer for another card and with more than a touch of arrogance says:"Give me the three I want".
After a tense pause for dramatic effect and a close up shot of the dealer's deadpan face, she turns over the three of diamonds to give him a winning hand, much to the incredulous amusement of Wahlberg's fellow players sat round the table.
Of course, this is Hollywood and in Tinseltown anything is possible when the scriptwriters put their mind to it. Without wanting to prompt a spoiler alert, in The Gambler, the full spectrum of both winning and losing are explored through Wahlberg's flawed character.
