VAX: VAX C 3.2, VMS 5.5-2, Motif 1.1 - Alpha: DEC C 5.2, VMS 6.2, Motif 1.2-4

Xblackjack is a MOTIF based tool constructed to get you ready for the casino. It was inspired by a book called "Beat the Dealer" by Edward O. Thorp, Ph.D. of UCLA. A number of important statistics are maintained for display, and used by the program to implement Thorp's "Complete Point System" (high-low system).

Beginners can learn a basic strategy which doesn't require counting. The best strategy employs a simple card counting technique which can be used to distinguish favorable situations. Avid players can learn to compute Thorp's high-low index, which takes the number of unseen cards into account.
