Blackjack Tip #1.
Stick with the basics
Use the basic blackjack strategy when possible. Statistics and advanced calculations are involved in the blackjack game. Don’t try to guess or “feel” the game, as you will be terribly disappointed. Strategy is better than luck, and the basic strategy would clearly give you an idea about the next required step.
Blackjack Tip #2.
Watch your opponents
Try to find your perfect table. A table having some noisy players shouting all the time might not be suited for a player that needs silence to apply strategies. Never sit at a table having beautiful ladies or pick-up girls. Watch the dealer also. An experienced dealer might give the “right” cards to the “right” player, and he could also spot cards counters and advanced strategy appliers. Usually, you could guess the experience of the player by his methods of shuffling and splitting cards.
Blackjack Tip #3.
Take Insurance, Unless Card Counting
If insurance is available, you must take it. However, a card counter must know the next card of the dealer. If you have a total of 20 in your hands and you are predicting a total of 19 on the dealer’s cards, insurance is useless. In any other case, the insurance is the perfect preventive method against that threatening Ace.
Blackjack Tip #4.
Apply money management techniques
Make sure you have the right sums at your disposal. If you want to spend one or two hours at a table, you must have the money for at least 100 rounds. Therefore, split your total bankroll of 1000 in pieces of 10 dollars. Don’t use them all from the first round. The average blackjack game is played for three rounds, therefore an average 3.3 dollars on every round is satisfactory.
Blackjack Tip #5.
As said before, the dealer plays the most important role at the table. An experienced dealer might turn the odds in the right direction. Of course, he would want to keep the best tipper at the table. Make sure that person is you. The average tip on blackjack games is 10 % of every won sum. Make it 15%. This way, you could retain most of the money for yourself, and you will have a sure spot at the table for a long time.
If you have a beginner dealer at the table, tipping hard might not be such a good idea, as the dealer would play fair in any circumstances. Check the experience and intentions of the dealer by offering him a huge 20 percent tip for your first win. If you are the winner of the next hand, it means that you have just found your next best friend.
