Counting cards in blackjack is a way to increase your chances of winning. If you are good at it, you can take the odds in your favor and you. This works because card counters raise their Paris as a bridge full of cards that are advantageous to the player again. In general, a complete platform consists of 10 players for the better, because the dealer break more often, and the player has a blackjack more often.

Most card counters keep track of the ratio of high cards, or 10 children who count as +1 or -1, then an opponent or -1 for low cards in the deck. Some systems use an adequate number where the number of low cards is the same as the number of 10

However, the most interesting letter to me, mathematically, 5 There were card counting systems back in the day that it was nothing more than count the number of five years, who had left the bridge, like its distance of five years, the player has a great advantage and increase its Paris.

A good basic strategy player gets a recovery rate of 99.5% of the casino. The five were of the platform adds a 0.67% expected return of the player. (In a game of blackjack single deck, anyway.) Means that, ceteris paribus, has a cover Allee 5 gives the player a slight edge over the house.

Two or three 5 is missing from the platform will actually give the player an advantage over the casino very important, and that’s when a map is usually increased use of the counter. The problem with the count of five and no more is a low platform in 5 of which happens quite often, so take a great advantage, and profit from this situation is that in rare cases.

Any card between 2 and 8, increasing from the deck of the player’s expectations. And all 9 Increase of 10, and the waiting time as the casino. However, 8 and 9 have very little effect on the result. (An 8 only adds 0.01% to the expectations of the player, so it is generally not considered yet. A 9 affects only 0.15% in the other direction, will not be counted, not more.)

Understanding the effects of high and low cards are in the expected return on a bet, the first step is learning to count cards and play blackjack as a winner.
