Blackjack System


Back to online casino gambling palace

Blackjack is in part a game of skill, not pure luck. A good blackjack player can change the casino's normal edge by playing with a good strategy/system, and can even on occasion gain an edge over the casino.
It is important to keep some things in mind when playing Blackjack:

The way to win is to get a better hand than the dealer. Many players forget this and play solely to get as close to 21 as possible, and end up busting more often than they should.
The dealer has the advantage in that all players go first. If a player busts first he/she loses even if the dealer busts later in the game.
The dealer has to follow a set of rules regardless of his position. Even if the dealer has a winning hand with a total of 16 he still has to take another card and may bust.

Hard Hand Rules (When an Ace must be counted as one)
A player who is dealt a hand totaling 12 to 16 when the dealer is showing a low value card (2 to 6) should stand. There is a high probability that the dealer will bust and the player will then win.
A player who is dealt a hand totaling 12 to 16 when the dealer is showing a high value card (7 to Ace) should take a card. There is a low probability that the dealer will bust and the player should try to improve his hand in order to win with a higher total.
If the player is dealt a hand totaling 17 to 21 he/she should stand, the probability of busting on a hit is high.

Soft Hand Rules (Ace counted as a one OR an eleven)
Most casinos allow an ace to be played as either a 1 or 11, whichever value is most beneficial to the holder. When a player has an ace that is being used as an 11, it's referred to as a "soft hand". These hands are played differently as the player cannot draw to a soft hand and bust (the player just revalues the Ace to count as 1 instead of 11).

The basic strategy for playing soft hands is to double down when the dealer has a high probability of busting (low value face-up cards).
