I originally landed on Discord by chance, but I've really come to like their social platform. It's a great way to chat and keep an open dialogue going. I enjoy participating in AP conversations and Discord is a great way to do so. I originally created this channel in order to help guide new players in the right direction and try to steer them away from bad information; we all know there's a ton of it out there. I've set up various read-only channels, filled with different resources to help the new players out. These resources alone won't turn you into winning players, but it will point you in the right direction and help further your card counting education. The nice thing about Discord is that it allows conversations to take place in real time, unlike many other online forums, as well as participate in Voice Chat. I hope you find the channel useful and/or entertaining. Enjoy!

It's similar to VOIP service. Numerous chatters can hop into Voice Chat at once for a group conversation. Think of it like a conference call on steroids.

Rules of the Channel
Just like any other forum dedicated to AP discussion, please keep it polite and civil. I won't be baby sitting the chat at all times, so be respectful with each other. Chatters who are constantly "trolling" or overly confrontational will be banned from the channel.
