Overview
Nathaniel Tilton was leading an ordinary existence as an early-30s financial advisor in Boston. Then, without a destination in mind, he set out to experience life in more meaningful ways. His path was forged when he met famed MIT blackjack team member, Semyon Dukach, who inspired Nathaniel to become a world-class blackjack player.
Together with his friend, D.A., he dove headfirst into the life of an elite blackjack card counter. But while studying the many books available on blackjack strategy, he discovered that the tactics described all applied to either big teams or solo practitioners. Accordingly, adjustments were made so that the techniques would work while playing with a single partner. The result was the creation of a virtually undetectable small-team system, something never before documented.
The details of this secret system are delivered within the pages of this exhilarating narrative, describing a glitzy gambler's life of high-roller suites, gourmet restaurants, and top-shelf entertainment, along with a dark side of deception and personal risk that would eventually take him to the casino backrooms he'd hoped he would never see.
The Blackjack Life provides an informed view of the opportunities that still exist for skilled players, a detailed explanation of what it takes to become one, and a thorough chronicling of what it's like to travel that road. It's also the story of the growth of a man who discovered who he was and who he wanted to be in the unlikeliest of places--the world of a professional blackjack player.
