This American Life on Blackjack

Posted to Statistics  |  Tags: ,

The newest episode of This American Life is on the game of Blackjack. Years ago one summer, I was a recent college graduate with a degree in engineering and a minor in statistics, making seven bucks and some change an hour and waiting for grad school to start. My idle mind grew obsessed with card counting. It didn't work out so well, but needless to say I found this episode fascinating.
