Blackjack Strategy

Welcome to Blackjack section. Pay attention to the fact that the right basic strategy to use will differ slightly, according to the rules used in each casino and/or table. This Section of our site will offer you guides to the right strategies for all the popular Blackjack games.

Begin by studying One Strategy:

For the regular player, specifically a novice, it is difficult to study more than one strategy, basically you need to walk before your can run. We recommend that you study the strategy that you will playing the most and use it at all times for the meanwhile. It is simple to study the exceptions later once you have in full control of it. It is recommended to play your one strategy good, with no errors.
The chart below in a good starting point. The only difference would be if you play at a single deck game. If so, then take a look at the single deck card.

Basic Basic Strategy Chart

H = Hit | S = Stand | D = Double when allowed; else: hit | Ds = Double when allowed; else: stand | P = Split
Surrender 16 vs. 9, X or Ace (if rules allow surrender)
Surrender 15 vs. X
Insurance: Never purchase it.

Extra Tip: Keep away from the new single deck games in vegas that pay 6:5 for blackjack instead of 3:2. The odds are in favor of the house. Play double deck if you cannot find a 3:2 single deck game.
