Blackjack Tips

The popular game of blackjack favors the dealer. If the player and the dealer both reach 21, also known as a bust, then the player looses. Despite the odds, people still win money. There are many experts on the subject ready to help prolong your stay at the table. If you want to be more successful at playing blackjack, the following elementary tips will be useful.

1. Begin at a table where the minimum is 5% or less of the total stash. As you choose a table find out the variations played at that table. For example, do the variation rules help the player like with the option of doubling down on any two cards. Or, does the dealer have to have to stand on a soft 17. You might not fully understand these rules right now, but these variations will work to your advantage.

2. Begin with the basics. Since the dealer has to take a card (a hit) on any 16 hand or lower, you will not win with anything less than 17 unless the dealer reaches 21. If the dealer shows an ace, K, Q, J, 10, 9 or 8, then take a hit on any hand lower than 17 because these cards usually cause the dealer to bust. If you have a hand over 11, if the dealer shows a 4, 5 or 6, then choose to stand because over 40% of the time these cards cause the dealer to bust as well.

3. If you strongly suspect that you will beat the dealer, double down. This means double your bet and receive and additional card. This is the players best advantage. Do not ignore this tip. Double with a 10 against a 9 or less and with any hand of 11. If the rules permit, double with the 9, or a soft hand against a 4, 5, or 6. The soft hands are hands of 13 through 17.

4. If you are dealt two card having the same value, split the cards, and double your bet playing two hands. Do not split 10s and 5s. Do split 8s and 7s against the dealer's card of lower or equal value. Split 2s and 3s against a 3, 4, or 5. Do not split face cards. Do split aces.

5. Always tip the dealer.
