Blackjack doesn’t always have to be about winning a lot of money. Sometimes it’s just about going to the Casino and having fun with your friends without losing your shirt. If don’t do anything else just remember these “Five Always Plays” and it will be a great advantage to you.
4. Always split a pair of “8’s”. If you hit, you lose 44.10% of the time. If you stand you lose 41.90% of the time. By splitting you still lose but only the equivalent of 13.60% of the time. That’s an advantage of 28.30% of the time.
I traveled to Roland,OK to visit the newest Cherokee Casino. I thought I had found Casino Heaven. If you “doubled down” it was on the house and you got paid in real chips if you won. WOW! If you split pairs on anything other than a pair of ten count cards, it was on the house. DOUBLE WOW !! How could it get any better? I won and left. In a few days I went back. I had the opportunity to double down on an eleven against a Dealer 2 so I took the free double down and pulled a Jack for “21”. The Dealer popped up her hole card (a ten count) took a hit and pulled another “10” cont card for “22”. I was happy until she gave me that double pat on the table. I said “Hey, you busted”. She pointed to the table where it was stenciled “A Dealer 22 is a push”. So, no matter what you have on the table that is still alive, it is all a push on a Dealer 22. That was my last trip.
Have you ever wondered about all the players you see sitting at all the Blackjack Tables? Are you intimidated? Do all these Players really know how to play? The answer is “Hell, No”. 92% of the people you see at the tables are losers. It’s not because they are dumb. It’s because they never took the time to learn how to play. Boys Club rules and deer camp rules won’t cut it. Learn the Basic Strategy of Blackjack to start with before you go broke. I’ve seen the same type of people try to snow ski without any lessons. That doesn’t work out very well either. How about the other 8% of the Players? 7% of the Players will break about even. Only 1% of the Players will make any money. There are different types of Players that win. Be it Card Counters or System Players, knowing the game and Money Management are the keys to your profit. There are an estimated 30,000,000 Blackjack Players in the world. That means the Casinos are sucking the money out of 27,600,000 Players pockets. Now do you see how Casinos make money.If you have the time, go to my web site, www.AskDrBlackjack.com, and check out our latest video. We had a lot of fun with it.
