Try Nick Trost's Blackjack Demonstration out of Gambling Tricks with Cards. It's limited to heads-up play but might give you some ideas. - Scott

Geno Munari had some stacks on a video that he put out about 12 or 13 years ago.

Hello.

One of George Joseph gambling expose videos has a very interesting black jack stack for one on one situation.

It is whole 52 card stack and a dealer never lose until the deck is consumed.

I'm familiar with nick trost's version. was seeing if there were more interesting or innovative versions out there. Ill look into the Geno videos or Mr. Joseph.

where can one get those videos? they seem pretty old and a google didn't come up with any places that sell them...

Geno Munari owns the "Houdini's" magic shops. I would try to contact him through the website. I'm not sure of the title of the video , but it was something like "Casino Cheating Exposed" or something like that.

I'm not saying that there is a wealth of info on this tape or a bunch of BJ stacks. I just know that he did have at least one, maybe more, stacks on there. I seem to recall a stack to repeatedly bust out the dealer on there.

Hi.

Here is just my opinion.

Steve Forte videos are the best of all.
Richard Turner expose DVD is wonderful.

If I can get only one, my choice goes to Forte's.
Then my second choice will go to Turner's.

If you already have the above two and want to study moves, you might not need Joseph's. However, 52 card BJ stack in a Joseph video fascinated me.

The stack is for one on one situation BJ(I mean a dealer and one spectator only). Great thing about the stack is that a spec CAN cut a deck anywhere and you start dealing. You never lose again and again until a deck is consumed.

Hope this helps.

If your interest is in stacking specifically for the game of blackjack then I would suggest the books : Cheating At Blackjack and Cheating at Blackjack Squared by Dustin Marks. There is also a video by the same author on cheating at blackjack that may be helpful depending on your level of knowledge ( but I would not personally recommend the video....Check into it for yourself at LL.Publishing).

I don´t know a lot about this subject but on Sal Piacente´s Lecture Notes DVD´s he teaches some basic info on riffle stacking which I use in this context of a blackjack game.

I tell the spectator that it is an imaginary blackjack game and ask them how many players are in the game. And then I ask which of those players will win, as I stack the cards in the shuffle. Then I deal out the cards fairly and that player wins. I repeat this a few times, and it always impresses laymen. Here in Spain they don´t really know what blackjack is, or know it by that name. So to do this I just say it´s an imaginary game where whoever gets the two red aces wins and go from there.

Hope this helps.
