The adage “the house always wins” is a well-established truth in the world of gambling. However, there are a select few players who cause even the most powerful casinos to take notice. Dubbed “Advantage Players™ (APs),” these elite gamblers possess an unparalleled mastery of games like blackjack, which are typically considered unbeatable. By leveraging their exceptional skill, lightning-fast insights, and razor-sharp instincts, APs are able to outmaneuver even the most formidable of opponents, securing victories especially when the stakes are at their highest.

But what sets Advantage Players apart is their ability to bend the system in their favor. Joel Block, an Advantage Player™ and expert blackjack player, has taken these same skills, attitudes, and philosophies to the realm of business, making his mark in the competitive fields of venture capital and hedge funds. Examining over 1,000 companies, participating in over 40 deals, and contributing to opportunities worth over $1 billion dollars, Joel is a true master of his craft. And, he is generous in sharing his wealth of knowledge, captivating audiences with cage-rattling keynote speeches and media appearances.

This presentation was originally part of NARSA/IDEA’s 2023 Spring Conference hosted by Empire Radiator in Rochester, New York.
