Online blackjack is one of those games where the results combined with your chances of winning are affected by your skill level. Most blackjack players start off by learning basic principles while the big majority of them never even get past that. Because of this, many players stay stuck in the beginner level and because of this their results end up suffering.
Tips on how to take online blackjack to the next level
First thing first, you need to keep in mind that every option you have in hand has an average win or loss associated with it. Imagine that you’re surrendering or doubling with a hard 20 against the dealer who is showing a six, it would have a very low payout compared to standing.
To get better, you need to eliminate all of the mistakes you make that have large margins and to work hard at removing mistakes with smaller margins.
Eliminating mistakes in online blackjack
To start with, you need to know exactly when to hit and when to stand when the dealer has weak cards if you have a hard total that’s 12 or higher. In this case, you need to come up with your own general rules to remember when to make any type of play.
You also need to study the small margins when you have a soft total against the dealer’s weak hand as you either want to hit and other time double to get a profit. In this case, you also need to come up with your own rules based on the dealer’s card as well as your own total to decide on whether you should hit or double.
