Peter Griffin's classic work provides insight into the methods and numbers behind the development of today's card-counting systems. The explanations and techniques within provide the means for analyzing almost every aspect of a blackjack game, including determining the accuracy of a card-counting system, identifying the proper basic strategy for playing any number of decks and set of rules, and analyzing the betting and playing strategies for any system. Griffin delivers the seminal work on the mathematics of blackjack while writing in a style that entertains as well as teaches.
Peter Griffin taught mathematics and statistics at California State University, Sacramento. A member of the Blackjack Hall of Fame, he has been interviewed frequently on radio, television, and in newspapers regarding probabilistic matters, particularly those associated with casino gambling and the lottery. Griffin served as the election eve statistical consultant for United Press International throughout the '80s, and is believed to hold the world record for rope jumping by a gambling theorist--more than 400,000 without a miss.
