First of all let me tell you that I am not that into casino games - except for slot machines, which are perfect for relaxation. I usually like games that put my mind to work as well, not just my luck. Most casino games are not like that, they usually need the player to be lucky more than cunning. Except for blackjack.

Blackjack is the only game I know that needs a bit more than just luck to be won. You might not agree - you might think that blackjack is a game of pure chance. After all, it is played with a number of 52 card decks all shuffled together, and the cards are randomly selected by a dealer (or a computer, in case of online casino games). But that is not entirely true.

You see, a blackjack player has a huge advantage: the fact that one of the dealer's cards is revealed. There are some decisions that can be made based on that one revealed card, that can influence the outcome of the whole round.

The strategy I usually use (successfully, I must say) requires some things to work. First of all, the casino or table must allow the player to surrender (get back half of the wager and do not participate in the game - much like folding in poker). Another one is that the table has to force the dealer to "hit on soft 17". The rules can change from table to table, or from casino to casino. For more information go to

So, the dealer gives me the two cards that form my hand, and deals for himself, or herself (or itself, for that matter). At this point I see what the dealer's revealed card is, and I can see my own as well.

At the basis of the strategy I have a simple rule, that I have read years ago online: always play like the dealer's hidden card is a 10.

If the dealer's revealed card is a 10, a 9 or an 8, and I presume that the other one is a 10 or a face card, or even an ace, the dealer will stand, and the total in his hand will be 20, 19 or 18. In this case, if I have a hand of an inferior total, say, 17, or 18, I stand, and if my total is between 14 and 16 I surrender.

If the dealer's revealed card is a 7, I stand at 17 or above.

If the dealer's revealed card is 6 or below, I have the luxury of standing at any total, as the probability of the dealer going bust is quite high.

Let me describe a round of blackjack for each of the above possibilities.

The dealer has an 8 revealed (or above), and I have a total of 14 to 16. In this case - presuming the dealer's other card is a 10 for a total of 18, I'd better surrender (as the possibility for me to receive a card with a value of 7 or above is pretty high).

The dealer has a 7 or below revealed, and I have a total of anything above 11. In this case - again, presuming that the dealer's other card is a 10, for a total of over 11 and under 18 - the dealer will hit, and there is a good chance that he/she/it will go bust. I go on.

If I have a total of 10 or 11, I usually double down, and I usually do not split or take insurance.

Try to use the above strategy when you next play blackjack, and see for yourself that it works. Good luck!
