Blackjack : Learn how to win
Do you like to supplement your sports betting with a session or two of blackjack ?
I prefer sports betting mainly, as I like to get the odds on my side, and I also like a hour of poker or two (MTT tournments rather than cash games - it's more relaxing) but recently I've been hitting the blackjack tables too.
I know what you're thinking - "Gooner don't bother the odds are not on your side" - but I've been having a little bit of success using some basic blackjack strategy cards that I found online at CasinoLabrat.com's blackjack blog stream.
Take a look at the posts in that link above - especially the three little tables produced by Kishan Neilsen. They're spot on.
I'm familiar with basic strategy - the means to play your cards in the most efficient way - or at least I thought I was but I was surprised how often I was playing it wrong in regards to choosing splits - and some of the double down options.
You can test out your new Blackjack skills by playing for free by choosing one of the no download blackjack tables on our free casino games page.
So far I'm hitting winning sessions at about 7-8 times out of 10 - although you do have to learn to know when to call it quits - and don't get greedy.
Give it a go on the free tables and see whether the tables help your blackjack play.
