Cards Blackjack

About BJA Pros

Colin Ben Gamblers General StoreThe pros from Blackjack Apprenticeship have been counting cards for nearly 15 years. They have played on all levels from testing it out as a hobby, traveling around the globe as full-time professionals (and, of course, by “full-time” we mean 40 hours A MONTH), to running a multi-million dollar black jack team with 30+ players, investors, and middle management.

After more than a decade of training they still share the same info that they used with their own team members combined with what current pros are using today in the field. All to bring up the next generation of card counters. To be a pro at Blackjack Apprenticeship there are two requirements. You must know how to beat the game of blackjack and want to train others to do the same (that counts as one thing.) Secondly, you must care about more than blackjack. We have no interest in turning the world into flat mathematician gamblers. Our pros travel, scuba dive, run marathons, start businesses for fun, play guitar in punk rock bands, and generally try and disrupt what ever status quo the universe is presenting.

The pros from Blackjack Apprenticeship have been featured in New York Times, CNN, This American Life, and The Colbert Report for taking casinos for millions at blackjack. They are featured in the documentary “Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians.” For a more thorough list of press about the Church Team, visit TheChurchTeam.com.

Both Ben and I have been taking money from the Blackjack tables for a long time now, and we believe we have the skills to train others to do the same. What started out a hobby for us has instead been the most exciting roller coaster ride I could NEVER have imagined.

After finishing college, I thought I’d end up teaching Math classes or maybe going on to get a Masters Degree. But after reading some books and networking with a couple other card counters, I began playing blackjack to supplement my income. In a matter of months, I quit my job, and have been self-employed ever since. In addition to running blackjack teams, I’ve started several successful online businesses and enjoy helping people escape the grind.

JCnote2Professional Blackjack has given me the opportunity to run my own businesses, travel around the country (and the world) and I have had the freedom to work a job AROUND my lifestyle, rather than vice versa. I’m excited about this site, because it enables me to teach others what I have learned through my blackjack career.

I have been card counting for almost 10 years. I love it. It has all of the benefits and thrill of getting in trouble with none of the legal (or moral) consequences. You see, I’m one of those people that like to take things to the edge…and then going one more step. I think that’s what drew me to card counting.

I always wondered what I would be when I grew up and for some reason I never thought I would have a job “in the box.” Well, I don’t. I have spent my “professional” years playing in casinos, running teams, training others to play the game, starting businesses with friends, and traveling the world with my family.

Playing blackjack taught me about discipline, patience, and business. Since blackjack I went on to co-found a successful internet startup, manage a few successful internet ventures, and basically live a retired life as a family man and writer.

“Loudon Ofton”

I’ve got stories to tell, so strap that helmet on and stick close while I take you to the front lines of my fight.

I have been counting cards professionally for the last 7 years, parachuting into casinos all over these United States for nothing less than hand-to-hand combat. No fight is like the next. I am closing in on my millionth dollar taken out of the sniveling clutches of the casinos. Top surveillance brass once hired to stop me have sought me out on occasion to tell me I am among the best at what I do. “Most Notorious, ” is a term I have heard bandied about in reference to myself on more than one occasion. But we all know these types can’t be trusted farther than they can be thrown, so let’s agree to strike any such flattery from the record before it gets to our heads. Most Feared Card Counter in the Universe will do just fine, thank you.

Before counting cards I spent time as a journalist, magazine editor, and writer of fictions. I earned a Master’s degree in Theology. It’s good to have God on your side if you plan on rubbing elbows with the devil—likewise the princes of greed in their corporate gaming lairs. I enjoy writing and performing original music. I am an accomplished lawn bowler. My spinach-bacon- tomato omelets are an act of brilliance.
