Blackjack Tips

The best blackjack players are not good just because they think they are. Most of them have put in hours upon hours of practice and have learned some key strategies and blackjack tips.

Ok, I am going to try and explain to you a few blackjack tips that have helped me become the player I am today.

First off I recommend grabbing the guide that most casinos offer their players for playing blackjack. This will outline exactly what I am about to say, on a little handy dandy card.

When the dealer deals you your cards you obviously have a few choices to make. It is these choices that make you a blackjack winner or loser. For instances, if the dealer deals you in and your total is 19 or above, you should always stand. Another tip to keep tucked away somewhere is, never hit if the dealer is showing a 5 or 6. The reason being, he has to hit because he has less than 17 and the probability of him busting is a lot greater because he is showing a 5 or a 6. If the dealer however is showing an 8 or above (possible total of 18), you will want to hit until you have 18 or above as well. The main rule of thumb when it comes to knowing whether or not to hit or stand has to do with the likelihood of the dealer busting or beating you.

Aside from knowing when to hit or stand, it is always a good idea to know how much money you should bring to the table. I have heard many theories behind bringing a certain amount of money to the table, but the one I use is to bring 40x the minimum bet you will be playing. This is because you can make up for loses by doubling your bet after a losing hand. For example, if you lost your first five dollar bet, you would bet ten dollars the next hand. If you win this hand you have won the money that you had lost the previous hand. To effectively have enough money to do this it is wise to have 40x your normal minimum bet.

Other things that are handy to know are when to double down and split. You can find out exactly what you should do if you go to the blackjack odds page. There I have outlined a bunch of different scenarios that will aid you on your blackjack play. If you have any blackjack tips that you would like to share, be sure to .
