How to defeat the dealer in blackjack

Blackjack is a simple and fun game. If you are simply killing time with your friends and family or just trying to warm up the atmosphere, it doesn’t really matter who wins or loses. But in a casino, it’s different. You want to win, but the owner wants to make money too. Therefore, it can be said that almost all games are more favorable to the dealer, with the exception of blackjack.

Blackjack may still have a high house advantage at the beginning. However, the difference is that each game is a separate event from the other games. The blackjack is different in that each game affects the development of later games.

In addition, there are two other potential rules of blackjack:

  • the card bust (hand with more than 21 points)
  • the dealer’s hand with less than 17 points needs to be replaced

These are the opportunities and skills that players can master when playing blackjack.

If you want to win at blackjack, you must be familiar with the following card counting methods.

  • A, 10, J, Q, K are considered as “big cards”
  • 2~5 are considered as “small cards”
  • 7~9 are not included in the calculation

If you get a big card, mark +1, if you get a small card, mark -1. After adding or subtracting these numbers, the larger the number, the more small cards are left in the pile. It means that the dealer is less likely to blow up when mopping up, which is more favorable to the dealer. On the other hand, the smaller the number, the more favorable to the player.

Therefore, players must be very patient when they start playing blackjack and record the number of cards dealt each time. This allows them to start betting after a few games depending on the situation. For example, in the 10th game, the number recorded is -7, which means that the cards dealt are almost small cards. It means that the dealer’s chance of busting the hand will increase. So the player can stop asking for the cards at the right time and wait for the dealer to explode himself as the loser.

Of course, this is just a little trick to win at blackjack. Please remember that all the tricks are not 100% useful.

Always remember

  • Keep your money in hand

Players must always keep an eye on their wallets and manage their finances well in order to have the money to continue playing or to leave the table.

  • Keep a careful record of the results of each hand

If you want to use this method of card counting, then you must record the results of each blackjack game very carefully in order to increase your win rate.

  • Calm judgment

Don’t panic when you lose money and don’t be complacent when you win money are the constant rules of the casino. Only calm judgment and adherence to your own strategy is the best policy.
