Wired's online site has released the contents of last month's print issue, and there's a great article about a group of MIT students that took Vegas for millions.

A baby-faced card-counting team possessed with impressive mathematical skills — here was a novelty that turned blackjack into an arbitrage opportunity. Their system was so successful, it took nearly two years before the casinos began to catch on — engaging in a cat-and-mouse war with the well-trained MIT conspirators.
Good to see a few geniuses putting their minds to work.
