Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

I win again but the tournament people are heading home, and there was only a single 2/5 NL game going, so I took my profit and cashed out a little early. A bit worried about all the wind and freezing weather. Considering I won every single day that I played during this tournament, I'm sorry I spent half of it too sick to play.

Most, if not all, of my profit yesterday came from flopping a set of threes on a Q ♥ T ♥ 3 ♦ board -- I held the black threes. Seven players before the flop for a token raise from some random to $15. No "real" raises, no three-bets, so I don't have to fear pocket Queens or Tens, just the flush draw. On the flop, someone bets out, someone calls, some nitty tight miserable human being raises, and now the action's down to me. I count up what's in the pot and make a raise to a total amount that's only slightly smaller. One caller. Now a card that fills the flush and a straight comes on the turn, and another straight card comes on the river but, somehow, my hand is still good. The only guy who could stick around for the flop action had a weak Queen, Queen Jack methinks.

The Saints won again, and this time they didn't bother to give the other turkeys hope. They just smashed them like a bug. An inspiration to us all...
