Blackjack Tips


It is said that Blackjack is in the favor of the dealer as when the dealer and you both bust, you lose. However, many people do win a lot while playing Blackjack. There are a number of experts on this subject as many people listen to them. In case, you want to stay at the table for long, the following basic rules can be of use.

Some of the basic Blackjack rules are:

  1. You should locate a table whose lowest amount is not over fifty percent of your sum total stash. While picking a table you should consider the variations in rules, which can help you like the opportunity of doubling down any two cards. Another option is that a dealer has to stand on 17. These variations can be very useful for you.
  2. You should always begin with the basics. The deal ought to hit any hand, which is 16 or lower. The chance of your winning with below 17 is not possible except if the dealer busts. If the dealer reveals an Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, or a 8, then you should hit on a hand lower than 17. However, if the dealer reveals a four, five or six then you should stand on a hand lower than 17.

Main strategies of playing your cards

  1. You double your wager in doubling down and get an extra card. This is beneficial when you believe that you will defeat the dealer. You should not disregard this option as it can be of great advantage to the player. You can double with a 10 alongside a 9 or a lower card together with a hand of 11.
  2. If you get two cards with similar value then you should 'split' them, this means that you have to double your bet and then play with two hands. You should never split 5's or 10's. It is suggested that you should always split the Aces and should not split face cards like 5's and 10's. You should split the 7's and the 8's alongside the dealer's card of lower value or equal value
  3. You can 'Tip' the dealer. This also called toke. The dealers are not unionized and most of them work for miserable wages and are dependent on your kindness. Except if, you are winning somber stakes, a one-dollar chip for every twenty hands, is appropriate. To make sure that the dealer takes care of your interest, you should place the tip before your betting circle. Remember to turn it in a side bet. Incase, you win the bet then the tip of the dealer doubles.
