Breaking Vegas Documentary: The True Story of The MIT Blackjack Team

Breaking Vegas Documentary:  The True Story of The MIT Blackjack Team

Based on the books by Ben Mezrich that cover the legendary MIT Blackjack Teams.

– Bringing Down the House

“Describes a collection of math whizzes from M.I.T. and their unique rise and fall of their blackjack team. For two years in the early ’90s, the team reaped millions from casinos around the world by using their mathematics and card counting skills to change the odds of blackjack in their favor.”

– Busting Vegas

“For nearly five years, he was known as the ‘Darling Of Las Vegas’; the biggest high roller to hit Sin City in decades, a hotshot, twenty one year-old kid with a seemingly unlimited bankroll and an even more unlimited lust for big money action. His name was Semyon Dukatch, and stories swirled in his wake. Some said he was a Russian arms dealer, others a pop star from Eastern Europe. But the truth was even more unlikely: he was a twenty-one year old graduate student who had a plan that would one day make him richer than anyone could possibly imagine. The Darling of Las Vegas quickly became a legend in the casino world. He is the only person banned from the island of Aruba. He was held, at gunpoint, in a cave in Monte Carlo and told that if he ever returned, he’d be murdered. And he made millions of dollars playing blackjack.”
