Summary Ben Campbell is a young, highly intelligent student at M.I.T. who wants to attend the Harvard School of Medicine, but can't afford the tuition. He joins a secretive club training in the skill of blackjack card counting. They use fake IDs, code talk, and hand signals to make hundreds of thousands of dollars at casino after casino. At first Ben only wants to make enough money for the tuition, but he's soon seduced by the Vegas lifestyle and the attention of fellow club member Jill. Eventually, Ben's greed and arrogance put the group on the radar of a brutal casino security enforcer.
