The movie shows the characters talking on cell phones and playing blackjack at the Red Rock and Planet Hollywood casinos, which didn't open until and , respectively. As I see it, that entire scene is a plot device to end the movie - create a conflict between Campbell and Rosa that leads up to the switcheroo finale. Learn how to use the chart to make decisions when playing blackjack. The real Jeff Ma Ben from the movie says that his father is very much alive and well, unlike the character's father in the movie. The Spotter conveys the count to the Big Player by casually using the code word in a sentence. The company is further explored in the History Channel documentary Breaking Vegas , which also examines the rigorous "checkouts" that the players had to endure. John Chang and J. One of the players we trained in late and was John Chang. Mezrich attempted to defend such accusations by saying, "Every word on the page isn't supposed to be fact-checkable. The money came from past players and the team leaders, including Bill Kaplan, who says that he also received investment capital from his former college roommate, a number of his Havard Business School sectionmates, and other friends and family. If they had a lot of chips, they stored them in carry-on bags. In real life, the team leaders J. Creating a company allowed the team to recruit its players and raise venture capital as a legal entity. The methods include using fake umbrellas, laptop computers, plaster casts and hollow crutches. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions , on which the movie 21 is based, has faced scrutiny for its embellishment and massaging of the facts that make up the MIT Blackjack Team's true story. Massar "Mr. Former MIT team leader John Chang responded to this scene in his blog by saying, "Starting from the part where Ben loses control at the Red Rock and loses K, the movie takes off on a tangent that has no resemblance to reality. If he makes up a few lurid details, well, who's going to object? Our players were far too disciplined to even think of doing something like that. Their wedding was held in a Catholic church located behind the Tropicana and across from the Mandalay Bay casinos in Las Vegas. On Chinese New Year, he invited us to a private party in Chinatown. It is okay to bet semi-recklessly. Mike Aponte, the real life Fisher, says that he was never beaten up in a casino anywhere The Boston Globe. John Chang, one of Micky Rosa's real life counterparts, said that, to clarify the MIT Blackjack Team's true story, the players did not "drink, visit brothels or strip clubs, or play slots in the middle of trips. His parents and his sister were his guests at the 21 movie premiere at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Semyon's team operated under the guise Amphibian Investments. Martinez, [Jeff Ma] and I had a friend who was king of the Asian nightclub scene. One of the reasons I ended up not going to Harvard Medical School is because of blackjack and all the money I could make there. Their real life counterparts, Jeff Ma and Jane Willis, were never a couple. I think what it does do well though is it captures the excitement of what we pulled off during our playing days. Typically, we were all business in Vegas, but after that record win we had to go out on the town and celebrate.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Ben Mezrich began his literary career writing techno-thriller fiction. M" in the documentary required that players be able to play through 10 shoes, while only making a limited number of counting mistakes. Massar were also very much the basis for 21 's Micky Rosa. In the movie, we're expected to believe that Micky Rosa Kevin Spacey provided the startup money for the team. Andy Anderson, a tall silver-haired man who worked for Griffin, followed the team for four to five years and played a major role in exposing their strategy Breaking Vegas. In the book, Micky is the one who comes up with the idea. In , she got remarried to Rich Davey. Our time was too valuable, and our focus too intense to bother. In reality, there were members from other schools, including Harvard and Princeton. The 21 true story reveals that the real MIT Blackjack Team was led by three individuals, none of whom were professors. Former team leader John Chang said that the movie's scholarship interview is a plot device that "never happened" in real life. Jane Willis and her boyfriend later married and divorced. It wasn't much, but they were playing for real money. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}In the movie 21 , an unorthodox math professor named Micky Rosa Kevin Spacey leads the team. Jeff Ma said that the first time that he had heard of such cloak-and-dagger tactics was when he read Mezrich's book. As a result, several of the MIT team members were black-booked by Griffin. Put yourself in [book writer] Mezrich's place. Mezrich's book has faced scrutiny. The 21 movie's true story reveals that the real MIT Blackjack Team was investigated by Griffin Investigations , a security agency that had been used by casinos worldwide. Mike Aponte, the basis for the Fisher character, says that they did carry most of the money on their persons when going through airport security. But Ma said that he never described such techniques to Mezrich, or knew of anyone using them. Jeff knew them and had been friends with both of them. The 21 true story reveals that the real MIT Blackjack Team, on which the movie was based, played in the early s. Mike Aponte, who the Fisher character is based on, addressed this question by saying, "There are some parts in the book where I just scratch my head because obviously Ben Mezrich, the author, took artistic liberties. In reality, it never happened at all. John Chang says players did not party in the middle of a trip. No, at least not like we see in the movie, where characters use such vices to celebrate a big night. This is because cash was easily recognized by security through the x-ray machine. Their faces landed in the Griffin Book, a dossier of photos distributed to casinos around the world Breaking Vegas. Arguably, the most notable is Bill Kaplan, a Harvard Business school graduate who had also done his undergraduate studies at Harvard. In the movie, Cole Williams Laurence Fishburne is a casino security expert who investigates the team. Mike says that security usually didn't realize the number of chips that were actually there BlackJackInfo. In addition to presenting a variety of strategies for success at blackjack, it also includes Thorp's "Basic Strategy" chart. Shortly after SI was terminated, one of its former players, Semyon Dukach, created his own team, which employed 60 players in 5 cities. Despite various voices on the internet coming out against the movie's mostly white, non-Asian cast some Facebook users have even called for a boycott of the film , the real MIT Blackjack Team's former members were not offended. It was started by Bill Kaplan part of the inspiration for Kevin Spacey's character , who founded the team on the same business principles and practices that he had employed in starting and running a Vegas based team for the previous three years. Strategic Investments LP disbanded on December 31, as the result of banned players, long losing streaks, and a lack of time due to more profitable business opportunities in the real estate market Bill Kaplan. Who in their right mind would do that? The movie falsely makes the team out to be an MIT only club. The author even quotes the book's main character, Kevin Lewis, whose real life counterpart is Jeff Ma. Jeff Ma, the real life Ben Campbell, came from a well-to-do family. So, let's beat up one of the players. Mike Aponte, the real life Fisher, stated that "in contrast to what the book said, there was only one time that we, as a team, went to a strip joint. Masser "Mr. You'd be considered such a losing sucker if you did any of that. You know that Campbell never gets to keep what he made β€” otherwise, why would he be applying? In fact, let's make him swallow a chip. Massar, and John Chang, the fact is there is little, if anything, that resembles either of us except that he started and ran the team and was focused on running the team as a business," says Bill Kaplan. The book's "Basic Strategy" chart reveals a set of mathematically correct decisions to employ when playing blackjack view the "Basic Strategy" chart. However, after this point, the odds are in your favor. These players are usually allowed on the casino floor, but are forbidden to go near the blackjack tables. Similarly, in Ben Mezrich's book Breaking Vegas , we find the Fisher character beaten bloody in the bathroom of a Bahamian casino. The movie shows Ben using flash cards to practice the various code words, which were used to represent the count. John Chang graduated from MIT in with a degree in electrical engineering. In fact, Jane and her boyfriend, who were both "math geeks," were recruited by Jeff Ma in the early s. The movie 21 and Ben Mezrich's book, Bringing Down the House , were both based on a smaller team that was an offshoot of Amphibian Investments. M" in the History Channel documentary Breaking Vegas was an MIT alum who had helped Kaplan manage the original team in the early s, shortly after the first casinos opened in Atlantic City. In an interview with Quint from Ain't It Cool News , Jeff Ma, the real life individual on whom the movie's main character is based, said the following, "I realized it's not really a movie about me. Thorp's book was the team's blackjack Bible. An influential member of the original team, Chang would later re-team with Bill Kaplan as a co-manager in the early s. Fishburne's character was not specifically based on any single real life individual. It's a cool movie about stuff that we did and a lot of the stuff that we did is very on point and true in the movie, but the storyline has changed quite a bit. In the movie, Ben's weekends as a high roller nearly cause him to lose his two closest friends, who no longer want him to participate with them in a robotics competition. Ben Mezrich's book Bringing Down the House describes much more elaborate techniques that the players used to smuggle money. When we arrived, we saw they had a few blackjack tables set up. John Chang, part of the inspiration for Kevin Spacey's character, said, "You might wonder, are the books true? It's not like an autobiographical documentary about my life. He wants to sell books.
