Playing Twenty-one — to Win

If you like the blast and adventure of a good card game and the anticipation of winning and earning some money with the odds in your favor, betting on chemin de fer is for you.

So, how do you beat the casino?

Basically when gambling on chemin de fer you are studying the odds and chances of the cards in regard to:

1. What your hand is

2. What cards might be dealt from the deck

When betting on blackjack there is statistically a best way to play every hand and this is referred to as basic strategy. If you add card counting that helps you calculate the chances of cards being dealt from the deck, then you can increase your bet amount when the edge is in your favor and decrease them when they are not.

You’re only going to win under half the hands you play, so it is important that you adjust action size when the risks are in your favour.

To do this when betting on blackjack you must use basic strategy and card counting to win.

Basic tactics and counting cards

Since mathematicians and academics have been studying vingt-et-un all kinds of complicated plans have been developed, including but not limited to "card counting" but although the theory is complex card counting is actually straightforward when you wager on chemin de fer.

If when gambling on blackjack you count cards reliably (even if the game uses multiple decks), you can change the odds to your favor.

21 Basic Strategy

21 basic strategy is assembled around a simple plan of how you wager based upon the cards you receive and is mathematically the strongest hand to play while not counting cards. It informs you when playing 21 when you need to hit or hold.

It is very easy to do and is quickly memorized and until then you can get free cards on the web

Using it when you bet on 21 will bring down the casino’s expectations to near to zero.

Counting cards shifting the edge in your favour

Card counting works and players use a card counting scheme obtain an edge over the gambling hall.

The reasoning behind this is easy.

Low cards favor the casino in vingt-et-un and high cards favor the gambler.

Low cards favor the house because they help them acquire winning totals on his hands when she is stiff (has a 12, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, or sixteen total on his initial 2 cards).

In casino vingt-et-un, you can stay on your stiffs if you want to, but the croupier can’t.

The house has no decision to make, but you do and this is your advantage. The rules of wagering on vingt-et-un require that croupiers hit stiffs no matter how loaded the deck is in high cards that will bust them.

The high cards favour the gambler because they could bust the casino when she hits his stiffs and also blackjacks are made with aces and tens.

Despite the fact blackjacks are, equally allocated between the dealer and the player, the fact is that the player gets paid more (3:2) when she gets a blackjack so the player has an edge.

You don’t have to count the numbers of each of the individual card to know when you have an advantage over the croupier.

You only need to know at what point the deck is flush or depleted in high cards and you can increase your action when the edge is in your favour.

This is a basic breakdown of how card-counting systems work, but gives you an understanding into how the rationale works.

When gambling on 21 over an extended time card counting will aid in tilting the expectation in your favor by approximately two percent.
