Hot or Cold Dealers

14 May 2011

In Blackjack, luck can sometimes have a big impact on your game. The real question to be asked is what is the effect of the dealer's luck? A dealer who is hot, and gets nothing but good cards that day, can beat anyone no matter how skilled a player one might be. A dealer with a "normal" or average run of luck will win as many hands as he or she will lose. The trick is to gauge what the dealers' performance is that day or during that period of time when you are playing.



You need to ask a series of questions. Is the dealer getting a small or busting type up-card each round? Is he or she busting a lot? Is the dealer losing two or three hands in a row before winning one? Or is the opposite true? Is the dealer turning up a big or powerful card every round? Is the dealer making 19, 20 or 21s with four and five cards? Is the dealer winning two and three rounds before you win a hand? You might know more about blackjack than the dealer or even the pit boss, but if you are getting 15s and 16s and the dealer keeps turning up a face card each round, it's the dealer who is having a bit of luck and not you. My best advice is when you encounter a lucky dealer, move to another table or pit or even another casino. Don't stay where luck is on the dealer's side.
