Practice Makes Perfect
Thursday, 25 September 2008 01:17
As with any card game or gambling game that requires skill in order to give a player a better edge over the house, practice is the key to success. When playing blackjack, the more games a player gets under their belts, the better they will become as they are exposed to more different situations that can occur around the blackjack table.
This also includes the many different betting situations that arise depending upon the cards dealt not only to the player, but to other players at the table and the dealer as well as the number of hands having been played in any one shoe. With practise a player will better understand when to bet large and when to bet small depending upon several factors such as what the dealers up card is, the amount of cards that have already been dealt and a rough idea of the ratio of high cards to low cards left in the shoe.
Practise will also improve a player’s ability to know when to stand or when to hit, when it’s best to split a hand and when not to and when to hit on certain soft hands for the chance of improving a hand’s score.
