Blackjack is an online casino game similar to Stud Poker but is played on the Internet rather than at a real casino. Blackjack, originally from Spain, is now the second most popular online gambling game after poker, with over seven hundred thousand players logging on at any given time. Blackjack owes its popularity to the ease with which it is played, regardless of one’s physical skills. Blackjack is comparable to stud poker in that it is a game best played with a minimal amount of money, since most bets are for the house.
The majority of Blackjack websites use a variation called “CaBB” or “Card Counting Blackjack”. CaBB is where a player places a bet with the dealer counting cards before the deal, thus making blackjack easier to predict. Players bet depending on the cards that the dealer reveals, up until that point where the dealer reveals all cards, at which point all bets are made against the dealer. For instance, if the dealer reveals a four, player A would bet four to win. If the dealer reveals a three, player B would bet three to win. As you can see, “card counting” makes blackjack slightly easier to predict.
However, with CaBB or Card Counting Blackjack, the bets can become larger because the dealer already knows the cards before the deal. Blackjack is a game where the house always wins; players betting small amounts are called “house dogs” while those players betting larger amounts are called “house busters”. Blackjack can be very frustrating to play for the house dog, because he has no idea what is going on, whereas the house buster can have a better idea of what is going on because they are betting. This makes it very difficult for the house to strategize and make blackjack mistakes.
With CCC, or count cards, the house always wins. Blackjack with CCC is a much more complicated game because you have to use some judgment as you do not always know what the cards are. For example, if you have a very high handset and your opponent has an equally high hand, your bet becomes higher than your opponent’s. However, this is also an advantage because it gives you a chance to make a bluff. If you do not bluff, your opponents will not be able to figure out what you are holding, and you can use your high hands to win.
When you are playing blackjack online, it is harder to bluff because the cards are kept in front of you. However, there is still a way to beat a dealer without going too far. If you know when a card is about to be dealt with so that you can time your bet according to the number of players, then you will have an advantage.
The third technique in playing blackjack that you can use is betting in the middle. This is not recommended for most casinos because you will want to maximize your winnings rather than just doubling your bet. The reason for this is because casinos generally round up the bets they are going to make. Therefore, if you are willing to double your bet, you would lose more by doing so. For example, if you were betting a thousand dollars and you doubled it to ten thousand dollars, you would lose a thousand dollars more than if you just doubled your initial bet.
