Live Blackjack is one of the most popular live games and it is no coincidence that most players love it. Blackjack has as its main feature the skill that each player needs to have and is not a game of chance as many may believe.
How to play Live Blackjack
Blackjack has many variations, but the main goal, as well as the rules that shape the game, do not change. The object of the game is for the player to complete 21 with the cards dealt with him by the dealer. Otherwise, the player loses, as he must not exceed the specified number, while he must not lose to the dealer. The rules of the game are not difficult and anyone can learn how to play even if they are complete beginner. The value of the cards is also very easy as all the cards that represent a number have that value. Also, the figures are worth ten, while it should be noted here that the Ace has double value, one and eleven.
In practice, the game begins when the dealer deals with two cards, and depending on the variant of blackjack, the cards are either closed or open. The player then bets, opens his cards, and chooses the strategy to follow. In case the dealer has 21 then the player loses, while in case both have 21 then the money is returned to the player and the game continues. It is of course worth noting that the croupiers conduct the game according to certain rules that are non-negotiable. For example, they can not advise the player on the amount of the bet or where to bet, however, what data can do and is often very useful, is to help the player become familiar with the rules of the game.
Live Blackjack Strategy
Each player has the opportunity to choose from many systems and strategies in order to make his game even better. It is necessary to formulate his own tactics in the game and of course to try several strategies to decide which one suits him best and he believes that it will bring him a higher profit.
Some of the Strategies Are:
Surrender: It is when the player chooses not to bet at all when the dealer’s card is better than his own. This can happen if the player’s first 2 cards have a total of 13-14-15-16 and we see that the dealer has an Ace or 10.
Double Down: This strategy is used more by more experienced and daring players. In this case, the player chooses to double the bet. That is, if he has 10 or 11 as a total of the first 2 cards and the dealer has 3 or 4 as a face-up card, then he can follow the specific “double down” strategy and double his bet.
Card counting: It is one of the most successful blackjack strategies. Of course, we are not talking about the usual sheet count that we all know and are used to using. In this case, the count divides the cards into two categories, the High and the Low-value cards. Thus, he categorizes them so that the player has a clearer view of his cards, therefore, from there arises the bet that everyone will make.
Insurance: This is a pretty good and smart strategy in case the player does not have a good hand compared to the dealer facing him. In this case, the player has the opportunity to use this strategy and ask the dealer to return all or half of the entire bet back.
Splitting: Considered by many to be the most successful blackjack strategy. However, it can be used in a single case during the game. Essentially, only when two identical cards are dealt to the player
