Blackjack Tips
by Jason Green of Predictem.com

Blackjack is a simple game to play but there are some tips that you should follow in order to increase your chances to win. You should know certain aspects of the game of Blackjack such as when to stand, when to hit, when to double down, and when to split pairs. Some of the following Blackjack tips can be used for professionals and beginners alike.

Here are some Blackjack tips that you can follow that have nothing to do with the tactics of the game.

- Blackjack has no limitation of any particular hand dealt. Because of this you should be planning your moves over a few hands.

- Decide, before sitting down at the Blackjack table, what your bankroll for that session will be. Don't go over your allotted bankroll even if you get on a hot streak. Once you reach that allotted limit that you set, stand up and leave the table. A good Blackjack limit is 40 times the bet amount. For example, if it is a $5 table, a good bankroll for that session would be $200.

- Blackjack is a game of chance, so never bet with money that you cannot afford to lose.

- When you are hot you can bet more and when you are cold bet less.

- NEVER try to hedge your bets by betting more if you are losing, as this is the easiest way to lose a significant amount of money.

- If you win big on any one game take out of your win. This will make sure that you will have a decent amount even if you happen to lose all the hands after your big win.

- When playing blackjack you will go through hot and cold streaks. Be patient and do not lose your temper if you keep losing. If you are losing your temper it is time to stand up from the table and cool down.

- Do not copy the dealer's moves, as they play in order to get the best advantage for the house. If you follow the tactics of the dealer you will lose more than you win.

- Do not listen to other players when they are pressuring you to make a move you are not comfortable with. Other players can help you and you can listen to them, but if it is a move you are weary about stick to your guns.

- Be careful when drinking on at the Blackjack table. Sure a few drinks can make the game more enjoyable, but you should know that drinking impairs good judgment and it can cost you money if you are making bad decisions at the table.

Here are some Blackjack tips that you can follow that have to do with playing tactics of the game:

- Always split when you have a pair of Aces and 8's. But never split 10's, Jacks, Queens, or Kings no matter what the dealer is showing.

- Before you sit down at the Blackjack table, find out if that casino gives you the surrender option. The surrender option allows you to forfeit half of your wager and then make the decision if you still want to play against the dealer. It is a good idea to surrender if you have 15 or 16 and the dealer is showing a 10-value card or if you have a 16 and the dealer is showing an Ace.

- Hit a non-soft hand until 17 and hit a soft 18 if the dealer is showing a 10. Stand on 17 or more.

- Split a pair of 3's if the dealer is showing a 5 and split a pair of 2's if the dealer is showing a 4. Never split 4's, 5's or 10's.

- If you have a 12 and the dealer is showing a two or three hit.

- Always double down if you have a 10 or 11 unless the dealer is showing an Ace.

- Insurance seems like a good option if the dealer is showing an Ace but it is an option that you should not take, no matter what you have.

- If the dealer is showing between a 3 and 6 you should play to 12 and then stop. Stand if the dealer is showing a 6 and you have a 12.

- Play until you have 17 if the dealer is showing a 7 or higher.
