"Buying low and selling high" is not scamming. It's standard mercantile.

So if you are trying to recruit an "army" to play blackjack for you on their own dime, claim you are trying not to make a cent because of this reason, don't you want their bankroll to be as much as possible?

The scam isn't in the profit. It's the illusion that you'll become a millionaire by following his method, whatever that may be.

He's out of jail, people still trust him apparently.

Re: "Blackjack Professional" Michael Morgenstern Is Scam, Arrested (Details)

I suppose you can look at this in two manners. One, he’s a violent, wife-beating, criminal and scam artist that has spent nearly all of his adult life in prison and is using YouTube to scam ignorant, degenerate gamblers. Or, two….sorry, can’t think of a second option.

It's very normal for YouTubers to try to hit subscriber count benchmarks.

They could only enter the cells because contractors left acetylene torches behind. For the vast majority of riots that wouldn't be the case, so inmates can't just enter whatever cell they want just because there's a riot.

Re: "Blackjack Professional" Michael Morgenstern Is Scam, Arrested (Details)

To set the record 100% straight, about the ex con scam artist Michael Morgenstern and not the self proclaimed "Best blackjack player in the world". The main reason Mike has gotten and continues to get banned from Casino properties, is due to his felony background and behavior displayed in the Casinos. This is contrary to Mike's reasons as being a "professional card counter".

It's widely known, through his own admission, he's a convicted felon for armed robbery. This also includes 2 seperate felony domestic assault charges, along with many other misdemeanor charges in his 40 year existance.
It was confirmed, by respected employee sources of certain casino's, quoted as saying Mike's "extremely suspicious behavior while frequenting the Casinos, his serious criminal history and youtube video threats to possibly commit more crimes" has made Casinos taking action to refuse him from future visits on their properties.

So while Mike continues to spew his lies and ignorance, to the few dim witted who believe him, in his youtube rants. The facts are and can be proven, the Casinos have taken action to protect all their patrons and themselves, from this dilusional convict's behavior. Should Mike wish to challenge this post "Live on his youtube channel" any night he wishes, I'd be more then happy to expose him to all his Blackjack Salvation Army tards.

The ball's in your court now Mike, set up the night to have me live on your channel and I'll make you look like the fool you are with the proof I have

Mike learned how to count cards and scam people into believing he's rich from Prestige Worldwide https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciS914MaDl8

I just found this guy's YouTube channel and watched a couple of videos. Clearly I found his antics hilarious. I also didn't ever see any truly big bets.

Re: "Blackjack Professional" Michael Morgenstern Is Scam, Arrested (Details)

His "ace/shuffle Tracking" is hilarious. He acts like he knows EXACTLY where all the cards are in a shoe after watching them be shuffled. he preaches about shuffle tracking and how that's how he's so good.

Stop justifying being naive by heaping on even more dumb naivete.

Most prisons don't even use 'bars' anymore. If the inmates get control of the con tower (or whatever facility that opens the individual cels or blocks) during a riot, they get at whoever they want.

Google prison + riot + killed for a casual history on how clueless you are.

Having a felony background does not bar you from entering a casino.

Certain behaviors may.

Re: "Blackjack Professional" Michael Morgenstern Is Scam, Arrested (Details)

This thread is absolutely terrible, and the OP is incredibly difficult to follow.

I actually believe that Michael is indeed a con artist. It is difficult enough to make money counting cards in blackjack these days, as surveillance and information sharing between casinos is FAR better than it was 20-30 years ago.

But if you're going around selling blackjack "systems", making videos of yourself playing blackjack inside casinos, you're clearly not winning in blackjack.

That, plus the extremely gimmicky nature of the videos, would lead any sane person to believe that Michael is full of crap.

However, if you're going to call him out, you need to coherently put together a straight-talking post explaining what he is specifically doing wrong, which claims of his are false, and the evidence you have supporting your accusations.

This is honestly one of the worst "XXXX is a scammer" threads I've seen on 2+2 in a long time.

as for the bolded- lmao it's not an accomplishment to be able to count cards. it's not hard at all. what's hard is getting away with it.

Re: "Blackjack Professional" Michael Morgenstern Is Scam, Arrested (Details)

I don’t post here, but this thread was brought to my attention. I was one of Michael Morgenstern’s biggest “haters” on Discord. I use the handle “AceTenBJ” there, so I found it odd when someone came on here using my handle in support of this moron.

Just for clarification, I do not support this idiot. In fact, I created this YouTube video to lead people away from this con artist:

https://youtu.be/toe04HMWQxA

Doesn’t look like anyone is falling for his bull**** here though.
