INTD 399: Blackjack / Card Counting

This course focuses on creating a simulator for the game of Blackjack that would allow for two players to play with the option of automating one of them. 
The simulation also takes into account the ever changing probability of the deck of cards. This is done by implementing a card counting algorithm, which will also calculate the rate of success for each given situation as well as the probability of breaking.

INTD 299: DS: CAPTCHA Security
