There is probably no other subject in the field of Casino Gambling with more variety and potential than the game of Blackjack (21). As you probably know, it is the ONE casino-banked game in which you can have an acknowledged mathematical advantage over the dealer during certain sectors of the game. While this IS well known, the debate rages on what constitutes an advantage, when that advantage ACTUALLY exists, and whether or not it can be legitimately exploited.

The articles, editorials and legal matters presented in this section of the website represent a diversity of topics regarding Casino Blackjack in particular, and gambling in general; where it fits into the overall scheme of the "Boris on Blackjack" format. Card-counters, Clump-Trackers and beginning players alike will probably find something of interest here.

If you are a writer, I would love to showcase your stuff. If you have something to contribute, please e-mail me with your ideas. I would like to showcase a diversity of input, making this page the premiere source of unique information on the game Blackjack. With your assistance that can happen.

Selecting an article or an editorial will bring up a separate browser window to enhance your reading enjoyment. When you are finished reading, close the window and you will come back to this page.
