EXPECTED RESULTS

Blackjack is a game where every decision you make affects your percentage expectation against the house. If you play poorly, you can give up more than 3%, or even 5% overall to the casino. That may not sound like much, but when you multiply, say 3%, by every single bet you make—which is how the math works out—that adds up to a lot of money quickly.

TURNING THE TABLES

But let’s look at the other side of the coin. What if, instead, you were better prepared and played at only a ½% disadvantage at an average of $10 per hand for twenty hours? Instead of losing $480, you would be out an average of only $80. That’s a $400 difference for a relatively short amount of time. Multiply these numbers by many sessions and many trips and we’re talking about a significant amount of money!

FIVE STEPS TO BECOMING A WINNING BLACKJACK PLAYER

Step One

Reread the strategy section and study the basic strategy charts. Get comfortable not only with the correct plays you should make, but the logic behind those plays. This will make learning the strategies easier and keep you focused on why certain plays should be made all the time, regardless of whether you’re losing or winning.

Step Two

Give yourself self-tests on various strategy situations to see if you have remembered the correct plays. You do this until you have the strategy down cold.

Step Three

Deal out practice hands to yourself, giving the dealer his upward as well. Get comfortable making plays with this simulated situation. Every time you are uncertain of the correct play, look it up in the strategy charts. You should deal out hands over and over again until you can make the correct decision on every situation that comes up.

Step Four

Have someone deal out hands to you so that you get the feel of playing against a dealer. This is as close to a simulation as you can get without being in the casino. This will let you practice with a dealer controlling the pace, not you. If you can play flawlessly without referencing the strategy charts, you’re ready to play casino blackjack with all your guns going.
