Blackjack is a super exciting and enthralling casino game. A game that doesn’t need any introduction to a card game lover. Although it is a fact, that the game is more of a chance than anything else. But if you really apply some basic set of skills while playing the game, you should be able to minimize your loses and may even end up making some bucks in the long run.
We would love to pass on some of these tips to you, which should help you in making a Hit or Stay decision, when you are on a Blackjack table in the future. These points can be considered as a core strategy and will enhance your chances of being a winning player:
1. When the dealer’s face up card is a good one, 7, 8, 9, 10 or an Ace, the player should not stop taking cards till a total of 17 is reached. This is recommended because there are too many pictures in a deck and you staying on a low total will not even provide you a chance of standby (tie). So it is better to keep drawing cards till you have 17 or better against the cards mentioned above.
2. When the dealer’s face up card is a bad one, 4, 5 or 6 the player should stop taking any more cards when the total of their cards is 12. This is simply because when the Dealer, deals 4,5 or a 6 to himself, he has a fairly high chance of busting, as any two consecutive cards with high value (8 and over) will do the trick.
3. When the dealer has an average card, a 2 or a 3. In this case the player should stop taking cards when their total is 13. As soon as you get to that total, you are recommended to stop drawing more cards against the dealer’s 2 or a 3, simply because, based on mathematical probability, the dealer has a decent chance to bust.
4. Also, whenever you have a soft hand (Ace and 2,3,4,5 or 6), it is recommended to take cards till the total reaches 18. This presents you with a better chance to win the hand against the dealer.
These are some handy tips which should be able to get you going in a Blackjack game. Good Luck at the tables.
