101 Ways to Win at Blackjack: Includes Tips to Win at the Casino and Online Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

When it comes to gambling, there's no better game to beat the odds--and win big--than blackjack. But there's more to it than just doubling down. You will learn about the mysterious--and surprisingly legal--skill of card counting, casino etiquette, single vs. team play, tournament play, variation games, online games, and more.

In this concise but complete manual, blackjack expert Tom Hagen and author Sonia Weiss deal out information on:

  • Complete rules for blackjack as well as variation games (like Double Exposure and Blackjack Switch)
  • Basic and complex strategies (including surrendering, entering early, and insurance)
  • Tricks for understanding odds and probability (such as how early surrender gives players close to a .60 percent advantage over the house)
Forget Lady Luck. This guide gives you the advantage, skill, and confidence needed to beat the house every time--and cash in
