The Part of a Team
John Chang took the special AIP class where he got more awareness about card counting but didn't accept the idea of using it at casinos at first. After few years later he attended the meeting concerning blackjack which offered $ 300 for spending a spring break learning techniques and counting. Thus, at the end he went to Atlantic City with the team that consisted of 5 members.
Later, the first big winning in Atlantic City for the beginner was $ 12,000. With every next sally as well as with every training John got more experience and more money correspondingly. The maximum bet for the team was $ 10.000 and the winnings were also quite big. Tommy Hyland Team at that time considered it to be too excessive and blatant.
The team was sponsored by Strategic Investments that assign certain amount of money for the team being able to play and earn more. However, once that sponsorship stopped because of remissness of players. Moreover, for the further proceeding of their business every member of the team needed to invest some money for the team's bank and John Chang was a one of few who did.
At that time the team regulated the number of members easily: the recruiting implied only the advertisement in the university and students that were interested came for trainings and tests. By the way, the tests and training missions in MIT Blackjack Teams always were the hardest and the most effective, including the checkout at casinos to feel the environment and the risk.
John Chang and the team led by him earned millions of dollars at casinos all over the world including the Caribbean, France, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Austria and England. A lot of money was carried away by players and the same amounts were spent again at casinos. This is the consistent development of the teams in gambling world.
