Summary
Ben Campbell is a young, highly intelligent, student at M.I.T. Wanting to transfer to the Harvard School of Medicine, he learns that he cannot afford the $300,000 for the tuition. Ben is introduced into a small but secretive club by his math professor Micky Rosa. The club has four other students: Jill, Choi, Kianna, and Jimmy. They are being trained by Micky the skill of blackjack card counting. Intrigued by the desire to make money, Ben joins his new friends on secret weekend trips to Las Vegas where, using their skills of code talk and hand signals. Ben makes hundreds of thousands of dollars winning blackjack at casino after casino. Ben only wants to make enough money for the tuition and then back out. Ben's greed and arrogance put Micky, as well as the group, on the radar of a brutal casino security enforcer, named Cole Williams. Cole holds a personal grudge of some kind against Micky which threatens to undo everything the students have learned and earned
