This blackjack legend is above all about a mathematician of genius. Ken Uston is the author of many books on blackjack, in which he describes his concept of team play, as well as the use of the strategy of counting cards in a team. In the 1980s, Uston also began to write numerous guides relating to the strategies specific to the first video games.
Ken Uston blackjack and his team were a nightmare for all casinos. Many casino owners have even denied Uston access to their gambling halls. However, this casino decision failed to overcome the willingness of Uston players, who found an ingenious way to enter casinos and continue playing their favorite game: Ken Uston was a master in the art of disguise, and his ploy to penetrate the gambling halls of casinos rested on a series of different costumes in order to change his appearance and go unnoticed.
Just as wonderful as it is astonishing, Ken Uston, as a professional blackjack player also won the famous lawsuit which opposed the casinos of Atlantic City in New Jersey, the latter not allowing blackjack players to use card counting during games, considering the process as cheating.
Uston was able to prove the fact that blackjack players had the right to use card counting by the simple fact that blackjack only used the power of their minds and not electronic devices for this purpose.
