    Hello guys! I'm only learning to play blackjack. Are there any useful blogs or articles that would help me to sort out?

    Hello amoser,

    Roulette is my game and I'm shit at blackjack (shit at blackjack means better than most though not good enough to bother), but when I was in my 20's my cocaine supplier (name withheld) was one of a small group of guys that got warned off casinos internationally for card counting back in the day when they played 2 decks though to the end... 2 decks to the end, imagine that, wow!


    Anyway, he once lent me an exclusive copy of the syndicate's booklet with all the rules of play and the card counting technique. He wanted me to come on board and join the operation, but I guess I was just to stoned to realise the opportunity. lol.


    It was a long time ago, but the point I'd like to make and the thing I noticed back then was that although they were counting cards to gain advantage, they had a very specific and mechanical set of rules for general game play that more often than not negated the need for card counting in the first place other than to strike hard late in the shoe if a favourable count arose.


    Missed opportunities of life, eh.

    Bombus, you made this similar statement in the "card counting-rollercoaster" thread and I asked you to elaborate and am still waiting. Now that you have referenced this a second time, I will ask you a second time to elaborate.

    It sounds like you are suggesting some sort of betting system or pattern that alone can overcome the IHA (initial house advantage) of blackjack and there really is no such thing. A betting system or pattern alone cannot over come a negative expectation game (other than sitting out the negative expectation rounds). I try to keep an open mind, so I look forward to your elaboration.

    So you mean there's no single working strategy? Do I get it right that each time there should be a strategy appropriate for that individual case?

    There is no betting system that can beat a -EV game. There are strategies that can be used to beat games that have
    a mathematical player advantage.

    Hi all.I have a good memory and I can easily think of a card.Now , I understand playing 6 decks,But I play blackjack online.There is not very important.I wanted to ask, but who as hit when the hands 12?I'm playing one on one against dealer, cars). How do I decide? I often do not hit, listening to intuition, but I know there are rules when hit when there is rules based on probability theory. For example, the dealer 10, and you 12, it makes sense to get?
