Blackjack mini-tournament playing tips

31 December 2016
Blackjack mini-tournaments are becoming quite popular. This is because they offer the player a chance to win a few hundred up to a thousand or so dollars for a modest entry fee of $25 or less. Also, the entry fees are usually returned to the player in prizes, so the tournament is a good deal from the player's perspective. ... (read more)
 

Managing blackjack losing streaks

10 December 2016
That’s a strange title for an article on blackjack. I mean, usually, I write about winning, not about losing, right? However, no matter how good a player you are, you will experience losing streaks when you play blackjack (even playing professionally). And how you manage yourself when you in the midst of a losing streak is just as important as knowing when to double down and when to stand. ... (read more)
 

Losing streaks at video poker

19 November 2016
A reader asked me if I’ve ever had a losing streak playing video poker. Short answer: You bet I did. But here’s why and how I deal with losing streaks.

Wake up, blackjack players!

29 October 2016
It was a busy Saturday night in the casino. As I walked around the casino, I was appalled at what I saw. In one section of the casino, there were half a dozen blackjack tables in a “party pit” jam-packed with players. Most of the players were male, no doubt because most of the blackjack dealers were female wearing skimpy attire (get my drift). ... (read more)
 

Why am I still losing?

How should I bet?

17 September 2016
One of the most often asked questions from blackjack players is "How should I bet?" You've got several options, and I'll discuss them in this article and offer my recommendation. FLAT BET This means betting the same amount all the time. Most players don't like to bet this way because they figure if the dealer wins more hands then them they'll never win any money. ...

Splitting aces and eights

27 August 2016
Always split aces and eights. That is one of the golden rules for blackjack players, but not according to a friend of mine. He insists that splitting eights against a dealer up card of 9, 10, or ace is crazy because you are probably going to lose anyway, so why double your loss by splitting? Although my friend's logic appears to make sense, it is flawed. ... (read more)
 

How to play those hard 8-11 hands

6 August 2016
Most of the time, when you play blackjack, you are in a losing situation, meaning the dealer has a better chance of winning the hand than you do and, therefore, that’s not the moment to bet aggressively. However, when your initial two-card hand totals 8, 9, 10 or 11, some of the time you will be in the ... (read more)
