Making Adjustments to Win at Blackjack

Making Adjustments to Win at Blackjack

by: pcment ( 4683 ) Edit this guide



Like an old oak tree that survives in a storm by bending with the wind otherwise risk being broken by standing tall and stiff, a successful blackjack player must learn how to make adjustments as well.  As a blackjack playing session progresses a player must be willing to take action as the playing environment changes as the game progresses.

There are two key elements in the game of blackjack:

1.     Money management; being in the form of several different betting systems.

2.     A playing strategy; one of several basic strategies or counting methods available for a variety of playing conditions.

Money management guides the amount of each wager and a playing strategy will dictate the action needed to complete the play.  It sounds simple, doesn't it?  But after your first wager both elements of the game begin to entwine and become dependent on each other like two children playing leapfrog.  Then the playing conditions (mostly consisting of play outcomes) can change against the player.  And if the player doesn't adjust accordingly he/she is destined to go bust!

What does this all mean?  Well, let's compare it to a game of bowling.  There is certainly skill required as one takes the bowl and controls it with placement, speed and technique.  As you continue to bowl the lane conditions will naturally change according to the environment.  The lanes that were once oiled become dryer after each bowling frame.  If the bowler does not adjust to this changed situation then his ball roll will react differently.  And there are many different things one can do to react to changing lanes.  One could increase or decrease the ball speed or change the release point of the ball from the hand or a combination of both.  But one thing remains certain.  If the bowler does not adjust then his score will be adversely affected.

Since blackjack is a mathematical based game each card that is used or exposed effects the probability of each hand yet to be played.  Measures such as basic strategy and card counting along with betting systems will help the player increase or decrease the size of the bet after each hand is played.  Money management can help bring the net results of winning or losing a playing session in the players favor.  Also, basic strategy and card counting can also play an important role in taking advantage of certain situations and doubling or splitting when the play favors the player.

So with all that changing mathematical probability going on the level of complication could give a woodpecker a headache!  Hence, you need to learn how to adjust to each new situation.

Now before you throw up your hands and say, "Whoa, this is too complicated."  Remember, you will not become an expert by picking up one book and reading it the night before you decide to play.  The whole blackjack experience is a life long adventure into honing your skills of many different strategies and betting systems and learning when to use the right one at the right moment.

Blackjack playing strategy has never been and never will be "one size fits all".  What is easy for you will have a different difficulty level for me or someone else.  And visa versa.

My advice to you is to learn and practice everyday.  Then learn again by your playing experience.  Take notes and reflect on each days results.  And learn to recognize changing playing environment.  Sometimes you just have to learn to "cut bait" and get up and leave the table.  If can be that simple.  In gambling, it is not about how much you win in each hand but about how much you don't lose.

Good luck and enjoy!
