This is me at my company corporate holiday party last Friday night. You can't see my hands, but I'm playing blackjack and have about twenty grand in chips, starting from two. (It's not that I am a kickass blackjack player, just that the dealer was having fun and intentionally screwing up to give away chips.)

Winning vs the Dealer

I find that one person can't be very good at black jack, but that an entire table working together can numerically screw over the dealer. Its not you vs them, its us vs the dealer. Sadly, short run gains cost the group from winning. And if one person is greedy, which inevitably happens, you will never win. 33% flat chance of a face card. You do the math to break the dealer. ;) Nice picture tho.
