In my book, Gambling , I presented a "Simple Strategy," which is seven simple rules to playing blackjack. The cost due to incorrect plays with the Simple Strategy is 0. Ever since my book was published it has bothered me that the cost in errors to my Simple Strategy was too high.
So in September I developed the following "Wizard's Strategy. That is the cost of one hand for about every 12 hours of play. Compared to the cells in the Basic Strategy, the Wizard's Strategy has only 21, as follows.
I continue to get Emails saying that when this strategy was used with my practice game , the player was corrected for following it. For example, my simple strategy says to stand on 12 against a 2, when it is mathematically better to hit. If you want to learn a strategy that is correct all the time you should use the appropriate basic strategy for the set of rules you are playing. Here are some comments of clarification.
A "hard" hand is one that either has no aces, or has aces that are forced to count as point, lest the hand bust. A "soft" hand is one with at least one ace, which may still count as one or eleven points. With a hard 10 or 11, double if you have more points than the dealer, treating a dealer ace as 11 points.
Specifically, double with 10 against a 2 to 9, and with 11 against 2 to If the strategy says to double, but you have three or more cards, or table rules don't allow soft doubling, then hit, except stand with a soft If the strategy says to surrender 16 vs. If the strategy says to "not split," then treat the hand has a hard total of 8, 10, or 20, according to the pair in question.

Following is a list of some common rule variations and the effect on the player's expected return compared to standard U.
Rule Variations Rule Effect Single deck 0. Beware Short Pays on a Blackjack More and more tables are showing up that pay less than the full 3 to 2 on a blackjack.
Most of these tables pay 6 to 5, but some even money and 7 to 5 tables are known to exist. In my opinion, only games that pay 3 to 2 deserve to be called "blackjack," the rest fall under "21" games, including Super Fun 21 and Spanish Regardless of the other rules, you should demand nothing less than 3 to 2 blackjack. You should always check the felt to be sure, and if the felt doesn't say, look for a sign.
If nothing says the win on a blackjack, then ask. Three popular bad strategies encountered at the blackjack table are: All three are very bad strategies. Following are my specific comments on each of them, including the house edge under Atlantic City rules dealer stands on soft 17, split up to 4 hands, double after split, double any two cards of 0.
For my analysis of this strategy I assumed the player would never hit a hard 12 or more. All other decisions were according to correct basic strategy. This "never bust" strategy results in a house edge of 3. For my analysis of this strategy I assumed the player would always hit 16 or less and stand on17 or more, including a soft The player never doubled or split, since the dealer is not allowed to do so.
This "mimic the dealer" strategy results in a house edge of 5. Assume a ten in the hole: For this strategy I first figured out the optimal basic strategy under this assumption.
