Various Blackjack Strategies


Whether you choose to play Blackjack live or online, learning some of the basic strategies for this card game will definitely help you to make some profit.

When you enter a casino, the landlords will make believe that every single thing that is happening at the tables is based on luck and you will get their money only if you are patient enough to get a lucky streak. Instead of being a loser no matter which type of blackjack you play, it is important to put in practice some useful Blackjack tips that will make you a winner.

Although this game may be characterized as being challenging, random and sometimes impossible for you to predict the cards that are coming, there are some useful tips that might work smoothly for you. No matter you play live blackjack or on the internet, if you learn the tactics and play them accordingly, you will end up by beating the house quite easily. First of all, you should know how many decks of cards that are used in the game; you’ll find this information on many websites that explain basic blackjack rules.

When you sit at the table, the dealer is in charge with explaining the game rules and all the necessary details that you need to know. As this card game can be played with 1 deck of cards and up to 10 decks, the strategies you apply may vary. Basically, if many decks are used in the game, the player’s chances to count or remember the cards are very low therefore the house has a big advantage in this situation.

The only major decision you take while playing this game is whether to ask for an additional card or not; as so, players have many chances to double down. The majority of online casinos allow their customers to double down in case they have a 9, 10 or 11 but players shouldn't use any of these options. It is advised to double down only in three situations: when the dealer has a 4, 5 or 6. On the other hand, it is a good thing to double down when you are sure that the circumstances are in your favor, as this is the most efficient way to reduce the house’s advantage to less than 1 %.

If your decisions are based only on instinct and you ask for additional cards only because you feel that, you will wind up by losing serious amount of money at the tables. All the gamblers who play this game by using various strategies will definitely double down every time they think they are in advantage, but the number of such plays is limited due to the fact that the dealer will not always have busing cards (4,5,6). You might have a lucky day, but this will not make you a successful player; self-control and perfect planning are the two most important things.
