is often known as an easy and fun casino game that almost anyone can
learn to play. As long as you can count to 21 and add a few numbers,
then all you need is a dealer. Although the other players are at your
side, you are not playing against them, and in fact each player is going
individually against the dealer.
Basic blackjack strategy is not very hard to learn, and after reading
only one good blackjack book for a few hours most players can learn to
master basic strategies for blackjack. The “Basic Strategy” for
blackjack consists of the best ways to hit, stand, double down and
Some blackjack players make the big mistake of stopping once they have
mastered basic strategy, and are still in a place where they are only
breaking even. Until you become a profit turner, there is always more
blackjack strategies to follow.
First of all, players who are looking down on their luck should do is
look into blackjack betting strategies. Sometimes people have the habit
of “flat betting,” which is making the same bet every hand, other times
they are increasing the size of their bets as they win, and then reduce
them as they go down. While there is nothing wrong with either of these
blackjack strategies, neither of them are based on facts, only
People who use more advanced blackjack strategies, like blackjack card
counting, tend to vary the size of their bets based on the “count.” If a
player is using blackjack card counting, and the count is looking in

other hand, if a player's count is favoring the house, then the player
will bet less, this can help insure that even on a bad night a player
won't loose much, and on a good night they will win a lot!

this system it leaves the person free from counting cards, and instead
of spending all their energy counting, they just have to win two hands
in a row.
If a player uses a smaller blackjack betting unit like 5, 10 or 25
dollars, it's easy to figure out how the method works.
With a $5 betting unit for an example, a player should start out with a
$50 bank roll, giving the player ten bets. The player starts by placing
a bet of $5, if they lose it's another $5, if the player wins the first
hand they bet $5 for the next. It is important to place that next 5 in
the betting spot with the $10 waiting for you from the previous wins.
This means that your second hand should have a bet of $15, and if you
win that hand pull everything back ($30), and start all over again with
