    Default Dealers Shuffle for Me

It would be so funny, he wouldn't even realize how he would be losing.

    I almost fell out of my seat watching his shuffle tracking video. I followed where that Ace of Spades went in his weak ass shuffle. https://youtu.be/ujgBrpxw5JY

    For a shuffle tracking video, that was pathetic the way I seen it. If he brought that weak shuffle to my poker game I would make him my bitch! The world has enough Teddy KGB's.
    I laughed when I read this but it is what it is, always one negative person in a batch. Not here to make enemies and much rather trash talk to people directly, hence why I go LIVE and post my phone number (813) 399-7336. I was shooting that video and had fans actually calling during it and that sort of threw me off but one must note that I am NOT a poker player, I am sure you have a beautiful manicure as well to shuffle cards... I let the dealers do it for me lol. I'm Michael Morgenstern, the man who made cards out of toilet paper in the hole in a federal prison. I am not here to talk foul about anyone nor hurt anyone or put anyone down. I am a human being, not different than anyone else and believe in uplifting people and helping them to progress. If I were to see a bad shuffle I would educate someone on how to get it right albeit shuffling is not what I do, nor magic tricks. It is an honor to meet everyone.

    I thought you would open up with an excuse. Believe me, you would need a crutch present at the table as in a dealer to protect you, but more importantly to save you from yourself in any card game you play. I'm not being negative, I'm just telling you what I think of your abilities. You need to step it up in your blackjack videos as well, to much talking and bullshitting and not enough cards in the air. I'm not so sure you can even count the cards. Your blackjack game/playin/dealin looks like absolute shit!

    All this coming from a statute, stay in your place and ask your wife if you can come out and play. I'm not an actor, or a professional YouTuber or Teacher... What I am is MUCH realer than you, I suppose that is why your image is made of stone, cold and lifeless. The Price is Right is coming on soon, yell at the people playing when they spin the wheel wrong... I'm sure you could do a much better job but I have never heard of you

    You better stay in your bubble Mike. There are plenty of people out there who could chop up a chump like you, myself included. I'll tell you what you are... your just another punk on the street who needs to be taught a lesson.

    I'm far too busy to talk trash with you all day lol I am sorry that your life is so full of negativity, that can lead to heart disease. I will pray for you... and if you're serious about that lesson we could handle it many different ways... I will pray that you can get your own laptop and home, I am sure your mother is tired of a 40 something grown man living with her and eating out of her fridge. Have a great day and if you want to talk in person (813) 399-7336 but I believe this is the SECOND time I have sent you my phone number to no avail, maybe when your mom gets home you can use her phone... Bless you.

    What's this prayer stuff? Are you, like Tthree on N0rm's, yet another deluded Christian? Oh gawd, I hope not. Uh, if I am wrong, forgive me as I am the resident devout ZZ Atheist.

    Hey, give the man a chance ... at least enough rope to hang himself.
    From his videos Mike appears to be a counting purist like ZG, not a well diversified advantage gambler like yourself.

    DD I haven't even heard of Mike M. until KJ started the first post in this thread. A counting purist you say? My eyes haven't fooled me, I know what I saw. He was the one issuing the challenge in his video that he would take on anyone in poker, rummy, or blackjack. In one of his videos, he claims that he'll put up $100K to challenge anyone over blackjack. He says he is not a teacher but he has placed himself in the sensai position so I was having a little fun with Mike.

    Here is something I am sure you will ALL find "entertaining." Look at my newest video, caught an online casino pulling the second card in a shoe. If nothing else you've got to respect it ZenGrifter I think you'll like this one as well, go to my youtube channel and look at the Caught Online Casino Cheating. Blitzkrieg, you are crazy, fyi, in a genius sort of way with a horrible personality but we'll work on it and become friends, like Doc Holiday and Johnny Ringo

    Thanks for the comment but I am no genius. Although I am a difficult person to please and make happy. You know I haven't had a good laugh in a long time but when I watched 2 of your videos which I posted the link to in this thread I did get a good laugh out of it, I seen it as blackjack humor.

    KJ, knowing that you started this thread what is your professional opinion?

    It went viral... just saying, it is at the top of reddit... guess I am not that stupid, and of COURSE you would have caught it, Blitzkrieg lol (Even with your dry sense of humor a smirk must emerge) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3-OssVlvgc

    Why do I feel like you are trying to drag me into some shit, Blitzkreig. Don’t I get myself into enough trouble with my opinions.

    I only saw a couple minutes of one of Michael Morgenstern’s videos. Although I didn’t actually see where he was selling anything, it seemed like a marketing ploy to me. On another site, someone posted that he set fire to some money, maybe $10k (or what looked like and was supposed to be 10k). Did you do this Michael? I guess indicating you have money to burn? Beside, video taping yourself committing a felony, I don’t find that particularly impressive. But that’s me.

    So...my professional opinion (for what it’s worth). Michael is kind of combining two Professional BJ approaches or concepts of the last 10 and 20 years respectively. The ‘slash and burn’ approach and team play.

    The slash and burn approach: This is high stakes play designed to take advantage of the large increase in casinos and casino locations and destinations, that have sprung up in the last 10+ years. You hit as hard as you can, as big of stakes as you can for as long as you can and when you burn a store or city, you move on to the next. Those of us that participate in this community, know of a few people that have had some success at slash and burn in recent years. ‘Smallcapgrowth’ immediately comes to mind. The thing really working against this approach is technology. Any success (and opportunity) is only going to last a short time, so you better hope you score big and avoid a large negative variance swing in your short time. Once you are identified, which at those stakes doesn’t take long, and data-based in one or multiple databases, that information travels faster than you do.

    Reminds me of a story within the last 10 years of one of the recent ‘known’ teams. I think it was the “Church Team”. They were burning through the south gulf region. Burned through one casino town and headed a couple hundred miles away to the next town. When they pulled into the parking lot, there was a contingency of security complete with photos in hand waiting for them. They never made it into the casino, let alone near a blackjack table.

    Team play: Different variations of team play, the big player call-in approach as well as multiple players just smoothing out variance, has been around for 50-60 years. It’s just that the public only became familiar in the last 20 with several different books and the movie about the MIT teams. But the casino industry has known about it and now even looks for it, so it is less effective than ever.

    One of the big down sides of team play is the trust issue. Top, professionally run teams have succumbed to this human characteristic or flaw. Besides actual skimming, just normal variance can cause otherwise trusting teammates, in some cases friends and family to turn on each other.

    And in recent years, there have been a number of large teams….benefit: many faces. But they burn through players very quickly. If you are one of those players, you usually get the short end of the deal. Minimal earnings in exchange for burning out your face, identity and future opportunities.

    My own approach has actually been completely opposite these two approaches. I am a solo player who’s top priority is longevity. I identify and play (mid-level) stakes that are better tolerated by each casino and these limits are different by casino as well as time and day. This approach has allowed me to make a comfortable living, now in my 14th year, the last 8 in the same town, with minimal travel. And I hope to continue to do so for a while.

    While I don’t wish any harm to Michael or anyone going this route, it is actually detrimental (short term) to someone like me. Every once in awhile, I see a change of conditions at a store or several stores in my rotation. I know my casinos better than I know my spouse, so often I will sense something before I even sit down at the table and see a change, like reduced penetration. A little discrete nosing around with the dealers and questioning those that I network with, usually reveals that a store or area was hit by a team in recent days/weeks. But this type of tightening up usually doesn’t last long and things revert back to normal within a couple weeks (sometimes months). It’s all part of the ‘cat and mouse’ game that is card counting in 2017.

    So, I will take a live and let live approach.

    Where is this at "the top" of reddit? All I saw was you getting laughed out of /r/blackjack, then getting banned.
