Well, the whole thing was completely secret, for years and years and years. So it was something you were doing where you couldn't tell anyone. We were totally paranoid about security--it was an all-cash business-- and the casinos could throw you out at any time - so it was all hush hush. From the beginning in 1979, I never talked about it publicly until after the movie came out in 2008.
Do you want to play nice together at the blackjack table or not? Do you want to play blackjack correctly? Do you want to count cards with me? These are simple questions that should not divide the great citizens of our country. Heck, even if we lose a few bucks, the casino will give us a free buffet.
