The first and most important rule in blackjack is to assume the dealer has a ten. This will drastically decrease the house advantage and is the foundation of a winning blackjack strategy.
If the dealer has a ten showing, the dealer has good odds and you as the player have much better odds. The dealer has good odds only when they are showing a seven or higher. Please remember this. It is a very important rule. I advise you to never assume the dealer has a ten showing when you are playing blackjack.
The next thing you need to do is learn basic strategy. You need to know what move to make with what odds. You should always assume the dealer has a ten showing because a dealer has good odds, but you have much better odds. The dealer has less of a chance to have a ten showing because he doesn’t know what will happen after he shows his cards. Please remember this. It is a very important rule. It will save you so much money.
After you learn basic strategy, you need to learn card counting. Card counting is very important because you can’t see the dealer’s cards. You just have to count the cards. With card counting, you can determine how many more high cards will come out and the amount of cards with high value coming out. You can then determine when to hit or when to stand.
You can’t count cards with someone else’s cards so you need to do it alone. If you get someone else’s cards confused, then you will have a better chance of winning. So you need to practice card counting. But you need to practice correctly. Please read my other articles on card counting for more information.
The good thing about blackjack is that if you have a good system, you can turn the odds around. Please don’t consider the casino house as your friend. They are out to make money. They have the odds in their favor the whole time.
My system is not the same as card counting. The only rule I apply to card counting is not to count cards. I have never been asked to count cards. It surprises me when people ask that. They think I must be card counting. They don’t understand the game. I WINED because the deck left at the end is higher than the deck that came in. Card counting would work if the deck was already shuffled. But it won’t work if the deck is not shuffled. You have to remember this. If you think about cards counting, you are thinking about memorizing cards. That isn’t what this is about. You have to HOT numbers and cold numbers. HOT numbers are the cards that have high value. Cold numbers are the cards that have low value. But you also want to know when you need to STAND or HIT. That is mentioned below.
The rule is, when you have a nut flush, you want to bet $4 to $8. Let’s say for example, you have a 9 and a 6 and the flop is 7, 8, 9. You bet $4 and win. Then you bet $8 and the dealer moves your $4 bet. You want to know when you should HIT. When you have a nut flush, you want to bet $8 to $10. This ensures that you will be paid for your winnings, plus a bit extra.
When you have a nut pair, you want to bet $4 to $6. This ensures that you will be paid for your winnings, plus a bit extra.
When you have a good drawing hand, you want to draw $10. You want to maximize the opportunity to win more money.
In summary, when you learn Vegas88, you want to have a plan. That is, you want a plan on how to win. The house has the odds in their favor, but you can beat them. The house edge can be reduced, if you know what you are doing. I hope you will find the information in this article useful.
The worst mistake people make when playing casino games is lacking a good strategy. Such strategy must be in place and easy to use, so that they can play longer, and further reducing the house edge.
