Blackjack card counting and system variations

November 30th, 2010

Blackjack is one of the most popular games of the casino. But the problem is that it is very difficult for people to win this game. When they lose, they have to give up a lot of money which they had bet. Therefore, people are looking for techniques and strategies which will assist them in playing this game. One of the renowned strategies used by people is blackjack card counting. Majority of the masters of blackjack use this technique to win a game. However many casinos have banned this activity because of the loss they face.

Blackjack counting cards refers to any technique which can be implemented to keep track of the cards which are being played in a simple game of blackjack. If one can count cards successfully then it can lead to a win and turn out to be very profitable for the player. The basic concept of counting of cards is that the players gives each card a specific value and then it can be tracked to judge if the cards are in their favor or not. This helps them in betting at the right time and making money.

Research and computer simulations have ascertained that a low running count works in favor of the dealer. This means that low card like 4s and 5s are beneficial for the dealer while a high running count i.e. majority of high cards like tens and aces are advantageous for the player. There are numerous reasons why a high running count can be favorable for the player. This is because the chances of blackjacks are higher and the dealer will have to bust more stiff hands like 14s, 15s and 16s. In addition the insurance option can be used which is again favorable.

There are a lot of variations of blackjack card counting systems. There is first the Hi/Lo method. A value is assigned by the player to every card which increases or decreases the count by 1. This is because the high cards are given a value of minus one while low cards have the value of plus one. The neutral cards i.e. from 7 to 9 are given a value of 0. The player can assess the value of the remaining cards by adding and deducting the value of those which have already been played.

Another variation of blackjack card counting system is the multi level system. This is the same as Hi/Lo. Only the values assigned are greater like plus two and minus two. People can use either of these blackjack card counting variation to score a win.
