Play Blackjack The Way The Professionals Do

By:Lesley-Ann Graham

Playing Blackjack at a table in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, or even at a small rural casino can be an exciting and entertaining experience whether youíve never played the game before or whether youíre a seasoned pro. However, for the first-timers, a night spent at the Blackjack table isnít usually lucrative, and often ends with losing a sizable stack of chips. As they stumble through the basics of the game, their stack of chips gets smaller and smaller until it vanishes.

For the pros, the story is different. These are people who are so good at playing Blackjack that theyíre making money much faster than most amateurs lose it. What is an enjoyable but expensive recreation to others is another day at the office for a strategic player. How are they able to make so much money when you are not? The answer is simple: theyíve mastered the simple rules of Blackjack strategy, and you havenít.

The secret that the casinos donít want you to know is that it takes only a little bit of time and effort to learn these techniques yourself! With the proper guidance, you can quickly learn all you need to know to turn Blackjack into a money-making operation. That is because, if played well, the odds in Blackjack actually favor the player, not the house. Casinos make money on the game simply because most people donít know how to play Blackjack well.

First, youíll have to know when to split, double down, and surrender. Surrendering is not an option at every casino, but it helps to know how to use it in case you find one where it is. If that sounded like Greek to you, donít worry. It isnít as complicated as it sounds. Splitting, doubling down, and surrendering are options available to you, the Blackjack player, that are not available to the dealer. That means that youíve got at least two weapons that he or she doesnít have! That sounds pretty good, but of course these weapons are only helpful once you know exactly when and how to make use of them.

In order to really win at Blackjack, youíll also need to learn something about counting cards. This is the part that the casinos really donít want you to know about, because if too many people figure out how to do it, those people will become such a draw on casino resources that they could change the face of modern gambling houses. In fact, most of todayís casinos are banking on the hope that you wonít count cards at all. However, since counting cards basically consists of paying attention, it is not cheating, so thereís nothing they can do to stop you. You just need to continually be aware of what cards have already been dealt out. Again, with the right guidance, you can develop a system for keeping this information in your head. Then, using this information, you can make better guesses as to what cards you and the dealer are likely to be dealt, and you can make all your decisions accordingly. Thatís really all there is to it. With the right strategy, thereís nothing stopping you from making money hand over fist playing Blackjack!
