Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is only one casino game in which a player, if he plays perfectly, can gain a mathematical advantage over the house. That game is blackjack. Blackjack Strategy teaches you everything you need to know to fatten your wallet and have a good time at the tables. At last, here is an easy-to-understand guide to blackjack's basic strategy and card counting. Michael Benson explains when to take a hit, when to stand, when to split, and when to double-down-and how all these decisions are influenced by the card count. Included are: a comprehensive list of blackjack rules, including those particular to specific casinos, regions, and foreign countries; how to avoid the surveillance techniques houses use to weed out card counters; inside tips from the professionals; a money management guide to maximize winnings and minimize losses; and 40 strategy charts. Blackjack Strategy is entirely up-to-date for today's casino play and, unlike many other blackjack guides, doesn't require a mathematician's skill to comprehend.
