Vorwort von: Max Rubin
Growing up in a conservative small town along the Maine coast,Kevin Blackwoodnever anticipated visiting Sin City. With aspirations of becoming a college professor, he traveled the usual roads of academia, earning bachelors and masters degrees in religious education and Biblical history.
His journey took a sudden detour in 1984. While working on his doctorate at the University of Oregon, he learned how to count cards and started playing blackjack on weekends. His studies began to pale in comparison to the exciting world of gambling. And one day, after a futile effort to find a parking spot on the crowded campus, he bagged his plans to teach church history, quit school and headed to Las Vegas.
Since then, Blackwood has lived what many would consider the American dream, earning big bucks while working only part-time, winning consistently at blackjack tables all over the world. More recently, he has jumped on the Texas Holdem bandwagon, with several poker tournament wins under his belt.
His unusual life experiences inspired Blackwood to write a novel,The Counter(Wooden Pagoda Press).In addition, he is the author ofPlay Blackjack Like the Pros(HarperCollins), the most comprehensive guide to becoming a winning blackjack player. He has also written for magazines, includingCasino Player, Midwest Gaming and Travel, Blackjack Insider,andGambling.com.His TV appearances include theWorld Series of Blackjack(semifinalist 2005) and theUltimate Blackjack Tour(finalist 2006).
