Blackjack is one of the most popular online (and offline) casino games. Most players seem to think that they know how to play it without having done much study. Even if you do decide to do some study on this game, there really isn’t too much to it. With a ‘basic strategy’ chart you can sit down at a Blackjack table and start to play.
Winning with Blackjack is another matter entirely.
First off, the term ‘basic strategy’ can seem like it is a bit limited, a bit ‘basic’. That is not the case at all, and the term is misleading. Basic Blackjack strategy is the only way to play Blackjack. It is not just the preferred method; any other way is wrong.
For example, many players think that hitting on 16 is wrong. It can be, but it all depends on what the dealer is showing.
In some real world casinos, hitting on 16 will make you very unpopular with the other players, especially if you are sitting in the last position next to the dealer. Some players think that when you hit 16 in that seat you are taking the dealers card. Well, they are wrong, too.
You play the cards according to the strategy and your position at the table makes no difference. If you have sixteen and the dealer is showing a ten, you hit, simple as that.
Every online casino offers blackjack, and some offer more than one variation of the game. The Gaming Club Blackjack game is the standard game that is available in all online casinos. If you go to that site and click on the Blackjack menu item under ‘casino games’ you will find a nice ‘basic strategy’ chart too. I’m sure they won’t mind if you download it and keep it on your pc for when you are playing.
