---[ Phrack Magazine Volume 8, Issue 54 Dec 25th, 1998, article 01 of 12-------------------------[ P H R A C K 5 4 I N D E X--------[ Living in SYNThings that we want for Christmas: Functional remote operating systemdetection. Functional remote promiscuous mode detection. Functional agentbased intrusion detection.A note about this issue. Loyal and perceptive readers will notice this issueis a bit smaller. There are two reasons for this. The first is swiftdelivery. We are attempting to make Phrack issues a bit more svelte inorder to pump them out on a more timely basis. The other reason is quality.There is enough garbage out there. We turn down at least half of allsubmissions to bring you the good stuff. Enjoy.Rewind to August 1998.It's Sunday morning in Las Vegas, about 5:00am-ish. Angstrom and I decideto leave the Hard Rock Hotel. It's been a long night of drinking andgambling. I am up maybe $200. He's up about $30. We're both inebriatedbeyond repair. We return to Jackie Gaughan's Plaza Hotel and Casino, awretched place where the old go to get older and everyone's got at least onefoot in the grave. Back to the Future II? Biff's Pleasure Palace? Welcometo the Plaza Hotel.Anyhow, we saunter on in, make our way over to the lounge and find Artimage,Asriel, Glyph, and Alhambra.* After some random dialogue (the specifics ofwhich I have completely forgotten) Asriel tells me I should play some moreBlackjack."I only have hundreds." was my reply. I didn't want to play anymoreanyhow. This was the 6th day of my Vegas stint and I was burnt ongambling."<shrug> Bet a hundred then." says As."<shrug> Ok." I caved.I plop down on a unoccupied blackjack table and plunk my hundred down. Thedealer was a gentle looking 200 year old man from Laos."MONEY PLAYZ!" I say. I remember being very drunk."Money plays?" He questions? The pit boss wakes up."Money plays." I confirm"Money plays!" He announces to the pit boss. The pit boss scribbles in hisbook.Here's where the details get fuzzy. I can't remember the hand I was dealt, norany subsequent cards. All I know is I played textbook blackjack. That's allyou need to know here. I played according to the `book`. I lost that hundred.At that point, my blackjack betting system kicked in. I lay down 2 more
bills."Money playz." I repeat."Money plays!" He announces to the pit boss. The pit boss scribblessomething else in his little book.My system is simple and almost foolproof. Bet small when you are just fuckingaround. Bet big when you want to win big. Lose a big hand? Double your bet.Lose again? Double it again. Lose again? Goto 1. The odds in blackjacktend to hover around .05% house favor (this can vary widely depending onseveral factors including the type of blackjack, the number of decks, theskill of the player, whether or not the player counts cards, the card countingscheme used, etc**). Eventually, odds are, you will win all your money back,AND THEN SOME!*** Of course, this relies on both your bankroll and the tablemaximum being unlimited. Small details I usually overlook.So I lose the 2 hundred.THE SYSTEM IS STILL IN FULL EFFECT. I plunk down another 4 small."Money plays?" The dealer musses? I nod."Money plays." The pit boss scribbles.I lose another hand. Bye-bye 4 hundred.Asriel is laughing at this point."Dude, I think you should quit now." He offers."Nah. I'm not done yet."Hrm. Time to gather my thoughts. No more namby-pamby. Time to separatethe armchair gamblers from the hard-core haggard idiot types who end up havingto live in Vegas. I peel off 10 hundreds. 1 large is placed in that littlebetting circle thingy."Money plays." The pit boss scribbles, Onlookers gawk, I pray.Now this hand I remember distinctly. First card: an 8. Hrm. Second card: a6. Ugh. Dealer shows an 8. FUCK. Oh. Good. Well, that's $1700 well spentin about 2 minutes. Well. I had to hit. I get a 6. Wow. WOW! Dealerflips his hold card. A 10."HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA" I proclaim."10 blacks out" The dealer shouts. The pit boss stops writing."Want to be rated?" He asks."Nope! Bye!" And off I went to cash out.* http://www.infonexus.com/~daemon9/PIX/Misc/defcon6/r00tdinner%2b/latenite3.jpg** Actually, playing basic strategy alone can sometimes give you a prettyclose to even odds (or even better then even). Usually, however, you willfind that you will need to count cards in addition to basic strategy to have areal advantage.
