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.
