Blackjack Tips For Success

Blackjack: Tips to Success
by Wilson of Predictem.com

Blackjack players around the world all know itís imperative that they have a solid game plan at the table. It doesnít matter how skilled you may be at any one particular casino game as the casino always has the edge. However, if players practice a little discipline by incorporating a few simple strategies while enjoying their favorite casino games they can, perhaps, close the gap a bit more between themselves and the house.

According to several proclaimed blackjack experts which includes Avery Cardoza, George Mandos, and T.J. Reynolds, any player who proactively keeps fine tuning their game will indeed be more successful. My experience has also taught me to pay attention to the little things that eventually can help avoid big losses and a negative session at the table. Letís take a look at some basic tips and bits of advice that may keep players in the black:

1.†Study up on the basic blackjack strategy. For example, you should feel comfortable by knowing what to do as soon as you see the dealerís upcard compared to your cards. If the dealer is showing a 5 and you have a total of 11, what should you do? You would double your bet of course!


2.†Never give advice to other players at the table. It may seem stuffy to suggest this type of behavior but ultimately it distracts you from your game plan. Also, you really donít want or need that kind of commitment because chances are if you advise another player once then they will likely continue to ask you for help the entire session, not to mention if they start losing based on your advice, it could get a bit stressful! Simply tell the other player that ďItís your dime, and you should make the decision yourself.Ē

3.†Keep the booze out of your play. Itís tempting to take advantage of the free drinks offered at most casinos but alcohol does alter your decision making skills. If you canít control or have trouble just having one or two drinks it is best to just ask for a water or juice. Remember this little jingle ďIf youíre gambling and boozing chances are youíre losing.Ē

4.†Never double your bet after a loss. This can lead to financial ruin.

5. Never bad mouth a dealer. Most honest dealers have no control over which cards show up after the deal. In fact, you should be pleasant and polite as dealers can tip off the pit boss if you are winning a lot or counting cards. However, if the dealer likes you and you are nice he may enjoy the company and overlook the fact that you are making a killing.

6.†Play when itís comfortable for you. Most casinos are packed from 8:00pm until after midnight. If you donít like crowds and high table minimums you should avoid playing during these peak hours.

7.†Make sure you set a goal and constantly keep track of your financial situation after each session or in some cases after each hand. If you need to take a break and go for a walk or use the restroom to regroup and count your chips then I suggest you do so. If you know where you stand financially it will help you determine how to play the rest of your session.

Blackjack is fun! Itís a great way to earn money while practicing some basic skills and strategies. The game can be both rewarding and ruthless depending on your preparation and knowledge. In blackjack, what you donít know will definitely hurt you, so study up and tap the felt! Luck to ya.
