    Card counting was never illegal just hearsay. Obviously casinos worked hard to protect their interests and searched for many ways to thwart it plus after Thorpe released his book this became a huge problem for Casinos worldwide. Disinformation plus the fact they knew no one reads the rules/small print was the direct reaction to this.

    Current rules promulgated after incident, before case.

    Article agrees barring is now illegal, but is dismayed that same person still barred for counting.

    You guys are dicks.

    But the casinos can still kick you out for counting, right?
