  1. NOTE FOR ALL THE PEOPLE BASHING THIS VIDEO IN THE COMMENTS (READ BEFORE YOU BASH MY ADVICE GIVEN IN THIS VIDEO: Notice the title of my video… It doesn't say "How to count cards in Vegas" and it definitely doesn't say "How to never lose at Blackjack". This video is intended for people extremely new to playing blackjack for FUN. Assuming the dealer has a 10 card will help most people beat the dealer more in most scenarios. Too many people play blackjack and try and compete against other players hands etc which is the wrong way to play. You only play against the dealers hand in Blackjack and assuming the dealer has a 10 will help people from "hitting" when the dealer shows a 5 and the player has 18. That is the goal of this video… to teach brand new people to Blackjack win more often. This video is definitely not intended for card counters or experts at the game to win money in casinos.

  8. Here’s where basic strategy reveals its limitations:

    1). You’re supposed to play ‘as-if’ the dealer down card is a 10. We are supposed to hit our 15s and 16s against a dealer 10 card up. But….

    2). We are told by basic strategy to NEVER take insurance. When the dealer up card is an Ace, we are supposed to assume that the dealer down card in NOT a 10.

  9. Just remember that the casinos encourage the use of basic strategy. The basic strategy cards are sold at the gift shop and players are allowed to look at them during play.

    Is that because the casinos are run by fun loving people that enjoy people winning?

    I play a conservative derivative of basic strategy – such as not doubling soft hands and not doubling a 10 vs dealer 9. That last one has saved me a lot of money.

  15. Also, taking insurance (when not counting cards) is a bad idea. The house holds over 7% advantage over you on this bet. 🙂

  19. Wow, there sure is a lot of MISinformation on the game of 21. As one little example, if you assume the dealer has a ten because there are 16 tens ,there is a problem because there are more cards that are not a ten even if you call a Ace a ten that is still 20 cards for you and 32 cards that are not a ten. You are going against the odds saying the down card is a ten. You will be wrong more often than you will be right.

  24. FYI probability says it is a myth that what the person next to you does affects the outcome of what the dealer gets. i.e if someone hits on 14 vs a 5 he could bust and the dealer could get a 6 to make 21, but those cards could just as easily be in the opposite order.
