Movies to Inspire Blackjack Players

Blackjack has always been a popular card game. Some people argue that it is just a game of luck, but professional poker players, especially those who know how to count cards, argue that it is a game of skill and strategy. They say that one can alter the outcome of a game and bend the odds in one’s favor if one knows how to implement the correct blackjack strategies. Blackjack became popular for a number of reasons. For instance, casino movies, especially those focusing on the game of blackjack such as 21, have contributed a great deal toward the popularity of the game.

The blackjack movie 21, which hit the screens in 2008, features Kevin Spacey in the major role. The movie is based on the true story of a group of students from MIT, who won a lot of money counting cards at the blackjack tables of Las Vegas. The students functioned in two groups. One group counted cards and placed small bets, and when it was time to place big bets, they signaled to the other group, which moved in and began betting huge amounts of money.

This movie also uses Bringing Down the House written by Ben Mezrich as a source of inspiration.
