|Plot Summary of Bringing Down the House|
|"This is the story of a group of MIT students who perfect a system for counting cards in blackjack and travel to casinos every weekend to put their system into play. During the week they are your regular MIT students, but read as they live their weekends almost surrealistically in Las Vegas as big players in the casinos. From the thrill of the secrecy to the alter egos the students assume for their profitable road trips to the paranoia when the casinos start figuring it all out, this is the wonderful account of how a group of MIT students were able to take millions from the casinos in Las Vegas."
Matthew Van Leeuwen, Resident Scholar
