    Powerful Yet Flawed

    The K-O system has been shown to be incredibly powerful in 6-deck games, but lacks true ability when it come to signle and double deck games (see below). Because of my limited bankroll, I have used it exclusivley in a local $2/6D/H17/DAS/DA2/Late Surr. game and have won over 300 units with an average of 15 units per hour. If I were playing a single or double deck game, I wouldn't use K-O, but it's great for the lower minimum 6 or 8 deck games.

    Comments from a Newbie counter

    Avoid this book like the bumbonic plague. It misleads you into believing that KO is the most powerful system around. I tried using it against SD , H17 , Double down on 10-11 against my local casino which gives around 60% penetration. I lost my shirt. It simply does not work each and every time I increased my bet when count was positive the dealer one. Looks like this book was solely written to make money for casinos and misleading newbies into believing that KO is unbeatable and will lead you to an advantage againts the mighty house.

    Simple...and Powerful!

    Very well written. Gives historical background, describes basic strategy, then lays out the mechanics. Card Counting is not as difficult as the casinos want you to believe, and once you grasp the basics of this system and practice, practice, practice, you'll find that it's actually EASY and FUN. The system is best used against a one or two deck game.

    A Good Book

    KO Blackjack is a good book that shows a simple card counting system. I think it is not as good a book as Frank Scoblete's 'Best Blackjack' or Stanford Wong's 'Professional Blackjack' because the writing is a little dull. Overall this is a good book and I recommend it.
