Hello! And welcome to blackjackbettingstrategies.blogspot.com. Today, I am going to be showing you a few examples of basic blackjack strategies. The most important element of the game, you can't go on to card and counting until you have basic strategy down path, is an absolute must. So I am going to show you a few examples here.
Let's just bet, I want have, let's go 20 bucks, Deal. Alright. Well, that’s not going to happen all the time. So alright, so we have an Ace and a 5 which you can see over here on the strategy card against the 6. So Ace, 5, you can see it's hit all the way across for that one. So I am going to hit 14. Now what I want to do, I want to 14 against a 6. I am going to stand, and the reason why is because the 6 is probably one of the best cards a player can have, the 5 or the 6, because the deal with the most casinos, as it says right I must hit on soft 17, and stand on 17 or more.
That means even if he has a 10 under here, which we always assume the dealer does, he will only have the 16. So it will have to hit. So I know right away I can stand and sure enough he had to take the cards and he better handed, right? So I will show you another one. Okay, a 15 against 8. 15 against an 8 hit and once again it's pretty obvious. You always assume a 10 is under here, a 15 can't beat an 18. So hit, 22, bust. He would have beaten me anyway an 18.
I made the right play. Okay, 19 against a 9. This is very good. I am just going to stand. I can hook for a push or -- there you go, push. Alright, a 20 against 3. It can't get much better than 20. Only one hand better than that. Beautiful. Another one. Alright, a 14 against the 4. So I am looking at my strategy card 14 against the 4, stand which makes sense again, because he is going to have to take a card, if he has a 10 under there. This is a good chance, I could bust on that. So a stand. Alright, well, that happens. You have got to be prepared for that. Rebet.
Alright, a soft 14 against a 2. So I go to the chart. Ace, 3 and these are rules what you really need to learn. It's the soft hand I can get a little bit confused in sometimes. Ace, 3. So it's the hit all the way across against a 2. I hit that. 18, alright, I am going to stand there. 18, push. And I will do one more.
Alright, 19 against an 8. Obviously, 19 will be an 18. If he has an ace under there, we will push. Hopefully, he has a 10. Alright, he bust. So that’s basically your basic blackjack strategy right there. Pretty simple stuff and like I said the more you play, the more you will get the hang of it, but you have to know the stuff like the back of your hand, because when you are counting cards, it is going to be way to much to have to think about the strategy and have it count in your head with everything else going on. So play about couple of hundred hands a day -- just don’t play money until you get the hang of things, and good luck at the tables.
