  10. This is a obviously as sponsored video.
    You can't win at BJ.
    They say the odds of winning are around 48-49%
    But those are the old odds, before the hidden card.
    The fact is that most players bust out in their first 20 hands
    The table has the hidden card and that is the gem that makes you more like a 20% underdog
    Since you don't know what you are going against

  11. Im no math wizard, but it seems like the reason it would be better to have a continuously shuffled deck would be so that the basic strategy would remain more constant, instead of moving further off as the deck(s) dwindled down. Is that the idea?

  16. 'Monkey' refers to any 10 at the baccarat table, 10, J, Q, K. Asians sometimes refer to it in blackjack as well, with the same meaning, but of course they wear SARS masks even in the casinos.

  19. The thing I was surprised to find out and he didn't talk about here is that the dealer is expected to bust (any player hitting on 16 or less) about 28% of the time. If you bust first you lose even if the dealer busts too. On some of those medium hands give the dealer a chance to bust. Other than that, doubling down is not always a good play, I play on a simulator and can't count the number of times on 10 or 11 i double down and get a 2. Unless you're ahead and can afford losing double, or unless you're behind and want to take a chance to catch up without increasing your initial bet, just hit as you normally would, if you win great, if you get a 2, you can hit again to get as close to 21 as possible. Also you aren't going to win every hand, impossible, you aren't going to lose every hand, impossible. Sometimes your fate is sealed before the cards are even dealt, you're going to lose no matter what you do, or you're going to win no matter what you do. So while "playing the math" seems like a good idea all the time, I advise playing feel, if you're at 15 and think a 10 is next, just stand no matter what the dealer is showing, if you think a 6 or under is next, go ahead and hit, if the dealer is showing 6 or lower, maybe decide to let the dealer bust instead of potentially you. Giving dealer chance to bust, possible win, you bust, no chance to win.

  25. There are two ways to win at black jack. Count cards or never play. If you count cards they will throw you out. You have better odds in the stock market.

  26. What if you have 20, dealer is showing an ace, if you take insurance, you either get your bet back, lose half your bet (insurance, in the very rare chance the dealer pulls a 9), or win half your expected winnings

  30. Thank you for pointing out that other players don’t affect your hands. I’m a craps player so I rarely play BJ but when I do I hear dumbass degenerates crying if someone makes a bad move. I explain to them that it doesn’t matter what anyone else does but they shrug it off.

  31. its thankful

  32. I love how the majority of footage shows the player getting their ass kicked. Meaning none of this information guarantees an advantage, it still comes down to luck, if the dealer fails to bust or gets nothing less than a 20 for thirty hands in a row (and yes, I've actually seen it) that's just how it's gonna go.

  33. 8:03 what?? The guy that doubled and got 21 lost his money to the dealer which also got 21? Shouldn't it be a push?

    Reply
  34. Please somebody calculate the house edge on the "never bust" strategy.

  35. you want to win in blackjack? There is only one way and it is very simple. Do not gamble!!!

  36. Since card counting is relative to the cards left in the shoe, wouldn't it then be slightly advantageous to sit at the end of the table so you can see what comes up first, and factor them into your equation? I guess it could hurt just as much as help, but you don't know if they will shuffle before a hand but you DO know what came up that round?

  37. WTF? One hand player doubled and got 21. Dealer pulled 5-8-8 and got 21 but took players money
