2 April 2016
Note: The player that I interviewed for this story wishes to remain anonymous; I refer to him or her as “Our Player” in this article.

Why Henry Tamburin takes insurance

12 March 2016
A friend of mine was watching me play blackjack in a casino. I was playing heads-up against the dealer in a double-deck game.

Understanding 'expected value' in video poker

30 January 2016
I often use the term expected value (or EV) when I’m writing about the best video poker playing strategies.

Non-intuitive blackjack

31 October 2015
NON-INTUITIVE BASIC STRATEGY PLAYS By Henry Tamburin Most of the basic playing strategy is logical to players. For example, players understand why they shouldn’t hit a 16 when the dealer shows a 6 upcard, or why they should split 8s against a dealer’s 5. However, some of the basic strategy is not so intuitive: like hitting a 12 against a dealer’s 3, or splitting a pair of 9s against dealer’s 9. ... (read more)
 

How to play Blackjack Switch

10 October 2015
Suppose you’re playing blackjack, you hold a K-6, and the player next to you has 4-A. Wouldn't it be nice if you could switch your six with his ace so you would have a blackjack?
