Words of gambling wisdom, compliments of the Hog
If you’ve found this page, then you’re obviously looking for something profound. You’re not looking for simple blackjack rules, because you’ve played before. Perhaps you’ve played a ton of toto hk , but always seem to come out on the losing end. The following list of blackjack tips is derived from many hours of relishing that wonderful ace and face (or ten) combination we like to call a blackjack.
Tip #1: Learn the blackjack basic strategy
Tip #2: Always split a pair of aces or a pair of eights. If you’ve learned the basic strategy, this should not be an issue.
Tip #3: Never get drunk while playing blackjack. Getting buzzed is OK, unless you’re a light-weight, but getting drunk can cause your stack of chips to disappear in a hurry. Plus, the Hog doesn’t have enough hooves to count the number of times he’s been kicked out of a casino for “showing signs of intoxication.” This won’t happen in Vegas, but it will at the riverboats.
Tip #4: If you’re playing online blackjack, make sure and find a casino where the dealer automatically flips over a blackjack if he has one. Otherwise, you could double down, hit 21, and lose twice as much to the dealer’s blackjack.
Tip #5: Start with a bankroll at least 20 times the table minimum. In other words, don’t play a $25 minimum with only a hundie to start with. More often than not, you’ll lose a lot in a short period of time. 4 chips simply isn’t enough to sustain short-term losses.
Tip #6: Unless you’re a professional, don’t try to count cards. First of all, it doesn’t work online. Second, even the simplest card counting strategies require a high degree of concentration. The detriment you suffer from screwing up will undoubtedly overshadow the benefit you gain from not screwing it up.
Tip #7: Tip your dealers and waitresses. If you’re playing online, tip your wife, your girlfriend, or your dog — whoever is supplying you with food and drinks.
Tip #8: When you’re doing well, stuff extra chips in your pocket and NEVER dig them out until it’s time to cash in. The Hog’s most profitable and enjoyable blackjack experieneces have been when he must dig deep into his pockets at the end of the night. High rollers might think you’re a puss for usuing this strategy, but at least you’ll be a rich puss.
Tip #9: If others are groaning at the table because of a hit you took, then you probably shouldn’t have taken that hit. Try hitting a 13 with a dealer’s 6 showing, and you’ll see this for yourself.
Tip #10: If you’re playing online blackjack for the first time, grab a good casino bonus to get you started.
