Beat the Dealer Using Blackjack Strategies

At first glance, blackjack may look like a very simple game that almost anyone can learn how to play. This is because your goal in blackjack is to get a hand closer to 21 than the dealer's without busting.

Strategy is very important in blackjack. Without strategy, you will not be able to beat the dealer. You have to be superior to dealer in order to win. You can offset the casino advantage and change the odds in your favor by developing and using a proven and tested blackjack strategy. Casinos are making a lot of money from the bad players and those without a strategy. Your goal is to avoid becoming the blackjack player who loses a lot of money playing blackjack.

As a player, you have several advantages over the dealer. The dealer only has two choices to make with his cards, that is either to hit or to stand. On the other hand, the player has several options like doubling down, splitting and surrendering aside from hitting and standing. In order to beat the dealer and win in blackjack, you must know how to make the right choices and when to make those choices.

You must also know basic card counting skills if you want to win. Card counting means trying to guess what cards you or the dealer will be dealt by knowing which cards have already been dealt. Card counting skills are very important especially when the dealing is already over and there are a few cards remaining on the deck. If you know some card counting skills and you are playing close attention to what's happening at the table, then your chances of guessing the remaining cards will dramatically improve.

It also pays to know any form of blackjack strategy that will complement any card counting skills you already have in your arsenal. It doesn't matter how good you are at counting cards if you don't have a strategy. There are countless blackjack strategies available in the Internet. Pick one or two strategies to master and use these strategies in real playing situations alongside card counting skills.

Blackjack is an easy game to play, but mastering it is not. However, you don't have to quit playing blackjack because you lost a game or two. In blackjack, you win some and you lose some. What is important is that you win a lot more games than you lose, and the key to winning blackjack is mastering the basics and fundamentals that can help you beat the dealer.
