Who Were the Members of the MIT Blackjack Team?

The MIT Blackjack Team was composed of 13 students who participated in a research study in 2006. The students were chosen from a pool of 60 applicants, and each was paid $1,000 to participate in the study.

The students were divided into two groUPS: the first group played against a computer while the second group played against a live opponent. The team’s goal was to improve their blackjack skills and strategies.
