Tips in Playing Blackjack

We all know playing blackjack is both a triumph and a failure. You win some and you lose some, the question is how you handle your success and failure. Here, I give you some useful tips in getting it good with blackjack, win or lose.

Just like life, a blackjack player also faces some tough emotional, social and financial difficulties to settle before, during and after each game. Let's face it, blackjack is seriously fun but it seriously hurts your ego, too.

My first tip would be to take blackjack as it is. A card game you do for fun. Always remember that you are the master, not the slave of blackjack. You can stop whenever you please. Be the man (or the woman). Take control. Don't let some setbacks bring you down.

Be calm in times of utter stupidity on your part or the other player's part. Panicking will not do you any good. It would make you lose your concentration and make you forget the game plan. When faced with such situations, stay calm and wait for the storm to subside and try again in the next round.

Have a game plan. Be prepared. Study the basic blackjack strategies and apply them to the game. A soldier with no guns or bullets cannot expect to win the war, so don't expect to win if you haven't even brought your guns and loaded the ammunition in the blackjack war. The key is to be prepared.

Think positive. Having a healthy, optimistic nature in every round of blackjack will really help you out, not just in blackjack but in real life as well. Thinking positively boosts your confidence thereby helping you conquer your fears and do what you have to do. Always remember that if you do your best, and you are prepared for it, then there is nothing else left to do but to play blackjack as best as you know how. Don't let blackjack ruin your day.

Play and bet in degrees. Don't put all your money into one bet. Be intelligent in betting that hard-earned money. Even if blackjack offers 50% chance of winning or losing, decrease your gamble after every loss and increase your bets after a win.

Lastly, and probably the most important tip I could give you would be to face reality. Even if you win 3 straight rounds, you cannot win blackjack forever. Winning streaks eventually end and you have to learn when to stop. It is better to walk out of a blackjack game as a winner than as a loser. That also goes for losing consecutively. Do not attempt to get back what you lost. Deal with the problem. Learn when to stop. The important thing is that you realize that blackjack is like a wheel of fate. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Maybe you just need to rest a bit; maybe it just isn't your luck. Whatever happens learn to be flexible in each situation.
