Blackjack Autumn - Exciting Black Jack Book
The black jack book Blackjack Autumn is written by Barry Meadow.
The story of Barry Meadow depicts how he left his business behind, his son and his fiancÃ© behind and left home with a bankroll of $8,000 and a suitcase. He drove nearly 4,000 miles over a course of nine weeks. In these weeks he played blackjack in as many as 200 different casinos in Nevada in 30 different towns. Along the way he recorded his experiences on this trip, his adventure and his play. Although Barry Meadow is known for his expertise in horse racing, he is still a newcomer to blackjack. He has authored several newsletters, manuals and booklets on horse racing. However, he is also a very skilled card counter.
Blackjack Autumn - a black jack book
Blackjack Autumn is much more than just a diary. It is a story about how to win at card counting, travelogue of towns and cities in Nevada and the conditions in the casinos in the state. The book reveals a lot about the gambling world and all of its emotional sides.
The book has descriptions about the various characters he comes across on the tables, the glamour and glitz as well as the unattractive places in the state. But mainly, the book is all about a man trying to beat the casinos at their game - blackjack. He writes about all of his sessions, the amount he bets, his losses and defeats as well as his memorable wins. Card counters would especially love this book to get to know about the negative emotions that professional players sometimes have to go through.
What is really striking about the book is that it is not just a serious lesson in blackjack or in card counting. The book is very personal and that shows through the story. It talks about the emotions that have to be faced by the players every single day, the mistakes that are committed by the players, the ecstatic feeling of winning big and the disappointment of a crushing defeat. It talks about what it takes to undertake a journey like Barry Meadow did, leave behind family and home and be on the road for weeks, just trying to win as much money as possible.
Barry Meadow talks about a lot of his playing tactics too. He discusses in great detail every single playing session and how much he came in with and how much he left with in the hand. Over the course of the journey he did manage to lose quite a lot of money and win too. His highest win had been at $3000 in one session and the end of the journey he does manage to make a profit out of playing.
Blackjack Autumn is refreshingly entertaining, hilarious and educational all at the same time. Anyone who has ever played blackjack in a casino would love the book and would gain something from it. The cover of the book reads "You will never forget Blackjack Autumn" and that is probably right.
