Playing blackjack is a really straightforward game, once you know how to play. There are some things you should consider when you are trying to win at blackjack. Most of us just go in the casino, sit at a table, and either win a small amount of money or lose a small amount of money. That is the way it should be, but it is not how it is.
The casinos are professionals, and know how to play. They have math Sections in their casinos that print out the best possible information on the least amount of spend needed to “ceed” the table. So, why is it that most, if not all, lose at blackjack? Is it because the table is rigged?
Does the Dewavegas refuse to hit a 16 against a player’s 16? The reason this is rigged, is so that the house doesn’t lose money. They are paid for every bit of hand that each one of their players loses. The only time that the dealer actually gets paid is when the players win the hand. So, if the table was meant to lose, why are the dealers paid?
The answer to my question is because the dealers are paid for, not because of, the cards that each one of their players has. The cards that the dealer does receive, they are paid for because of the cards that the players never had. The casino is in business to make money, so it’s in their best interest to pay dealers for their skill.
I’ve heard it said that, “You beat the dealer so it’s not fair to the other players.” That’s not only wrong, it’s not even close to true. The reason that the dealer is not fair to the other players is because the10% commission allows the casino to keep the players more than they would if there were no dealer. The only way the other players are not receiving their “fair” share of the pot is if they had never entered the pot in the first place.
One of the most important keys to becoming a better player is to learn the techniques of betting, because even though the house benefits less than the player, they still make money. Having a solid betting system will give you more advantages over the house than any other investment strategy. I advise you to find a system that doesn’t work or one that only teaches you to play in such a way that you’re either drawing dead, or you lose more than you win. No system is that straightforward.
The last secret of blackjack playing is one that not many people understand. That is, you have to operate a basic income dollar level strategy. This means that you must play at least your top dollar level ten percent of the time. Never play on your bonus money. If you thought you could go $400+ and come out with $500+ of nothing, you’re wrong. It doesn’t work like that. You may end up going broke if you treat the game like a business. Instead of playing your $400 buy in, maybe you should be playing your twice as expensive plus 1% or 2% EV. This increases your cash out quite nicely as well.
Don’t fall for any of the secret systems like the 97% systems, or the vs. 21% systems. These are money losing systems that are not worth your time and money. Find your own system and use it correctly. Rigging a computer poker bot is probably not a concern, but a lot of people are concerned with them. Are you one of those people that would use a poker bot to win them $1000’s? If you are, you’re probably one of the best poker players in the world and don’t need my opinion. Go ahead and use any poker bot you want, you’re not paying for them so just use them however you want!
