Here's my back story. I'm a self employed landscaper/degenerate poker player who just developed some health issues. My back is screwed and my shoulder is in constant pain. I came to the conclusion that its time to find another line of work that doesn't involve shovels and heavy lifting. I've always loved Vegas and gambling and was thinking - I should be a professional gambler when I grow up ( lol I'm 45 ) Anyhow, I've messed around on ocassion with some online bj card counting trainers and with my recent injuries thought why not take this a step further and really try to become a proficient card counter. Would like some thoughts, advice and suggestions from any of you out there who may be proficient at card counting. Is it a worthy pursuit, how good are the casinos at catching counters ( or do they even care, if it's not for stakes in the high thousands )what kind of time frame does it take to become good at counting or is this just a silly thought and a total waste of time? Any online sites that I should be looking at. Thanks.
