Can you make a living off blackjack?
It’s definitely possible to play blackjack for a living. It takes hard work, determination, and self control, but we are living proof that you can make a living counting cards at blackjack (not to mention the 100 people we hang out with at the blackjack ball, half of which are millionaires thanks to the casinos).
Why you should not split 10s?
The reason for this is that you are highly unlikely to get dealt out an Ace or another 10 valued card to a split card which initially contained a pair of 10 valued cards, and the Dealer is unlikely to beat those hands.
Do you split 10s against a 5?
Not necessarily. Card counters sometimes split 10s when the dealer shows a 5 or 6 but only when the remaining pack of cards is loaded with 10s, which card counters would know because they are tracking the high and low cards.
Do you split 9s against a 5?
Splitting 9s According to basic strategy, you should split 9s against every numeric card a dealer holds, except for a 7. The reason is that if the dealer holds a seven, he stands a great chance of holding a 10 hole card and will stand on his hard 17, thus your 9-9 will win.
Do you hit on 12 against a 2?
12 Against a Dealer’s 2 in Blackjack – Why Hit It? One of the more frustrating hands in blackjack is being dealt a 12 when the dealer shows a 2 upcard. With a 2 upcard, the dealer has a 35% chance of busting and a 65% chance of making a 17 though 21. If you stand, you’ll win 35% of the time and lose 65% of the time.
How much money should I bring to blackjack?
A decent rule of thumb is to bring at least 100 betting units (for a 4 hour session). So if your betting unit is $100, then I’d bring $10K.
Do casinos cheat at blackjack?
The bottom-line being, yes, in fact, casinos do cheat. Some use little tricks; some pull out big guns. Some of the tricks are sly but not something that the casinos don’t encourage, but some are just plain evil; if caught, the casinos have to pay a high price.
