A typical American roulette wheel has 38 numbers — 1 through 36 plus 0 and Play all of them you can. Looking forward to the new version. That makes a hand value of 16, so he must draw another card. I tried your system out last Friday at six different race tracks. That creates a 5.

The goal playing blackjack is to not bust your hand but to get close to 21 as possible. This also depends on how many high cards have been played. This software seems really biased. Did anyone have the same issue? Or the software is rigged? I am surprised at so many comments that sound so professional, but how naive so many players are. The odds are against you from the start and yes you can practice and count cards all you like, but lady luck always, always wins.
If you play long enough the chance of you losing actually becomes less likely than you getting hit by a car or dying on your way to the casino. Am I ready to take on the casino? I started at I won 23 lost I did lost most of my bigger bets but I got some double downs and I as well won my smaller ones to build up to the back and forth with the same until I got a few momentum.
I never went back to base and was down over at a time. I lost most of my bigger bets. I lost the most double downs I had lost so far. I lost majority of my bigger bets and I lost most of the double downs.
I as well only went to max bet I as well had a few blackjacks and the dealer had some blackjacks. You played 49 hands. I won 14 hands and lost I as well lost my double downs so that is why I was down so much money just on a short sample. I am nobody in the gambling the world and seen as a fool but under new supervision I have decided to put more research and depth into blackjack.
Now I have so much negative experience putting my money on the tables and watching it exchanged for plastic cheques. Seeing my pile grow from its existing and watching it dwindle upon consecutive losses. What I do have to offer is some data and thoughts to think about for anyone who choses to read my comment.
You should read this: It becomes literally impossible for you to win if you play enough hands because of the law of large numbers. Which is this http: I absolutely agree but at the same time you are not looking at the overall negative play on the game itself and how to use it to your advantage.
I have won 7 hands out of I am of course down money and actually. I am as well at the mark of betting. Each of your bets have a Regardless of how you wager it. Your method would do just as well in roulette. Raising your bet or lowering it based on whether you win or lose is bullhonkey. Hopefully Tum can have the new developers take a look. In the meantime, have you tried another browser? This sounds like a memory allocation issue, and another browser may behave differently.
My question is , when playing against 6 decks, with late surrender offered, dealer must stand on soft 17, what is your surrender strategy, including a pair of 8s. I made a mistake. I would have only posted one time and just played more hands but I was getting beaten so bad I thought I might run out of chips if I go through another down swing when a hot deck comes.
That spread is definitely sufficient to beat this game. I no longer have a copy of Blackjack Attack handy to look up the effect. If you want insurance, you put an insurance bet in its bet circle before you click on the continue arrow.
Since I sold the BlackjackInfo site in , I am not involved in the development of the new version of the trainer. Your best bet may be posting on the message forums, where your comments are more likely to be noticed.
It used to tell me I should split a pair of 7s against a Every so often I see some ridiculous error in it. We are actually looking to revamp the trainer at some stage in the future too so your feedback and suggestions are appreciated!
Wish you would modify the program to allow you to select a counting method from a few popular ones and them display the true count somewhere on the screen. I use KO while playing this and it would be helpful if I knew how accurate I was counting. Am I looking like I have an edge over the game or is this sample size too small to be meaningful?
If so, you are doing very good. But it would be best to make a judgement after more hands have been played, such as 10K to 20K. I stopped playing because once you start playing enough hands the program starts to get slow. Thank you for providing such a nice training game, it is very informative and a valuable training tool. I do find the screen difficult to see as the contrast seems to be on the weak side.
Other than that one minor issue your game is excellent. Hi i have just started playing blackjack and i am doing fair your basic strategy game is a wonder. I am new to this Blackjack world, but have played around the world. Right now I live in Germany so I have many casinos in many countries to play.
The casinos in Europe they use the same basic rules though they are smaller compared to U. Reminds me of the old days when people dressed up or like a James Bond movie, really cool to see. I forgot to mention I have noticed on a second hit it sends two cards not one, The game also freezes up and at times gets really slow after so many hands. I have enjoyed your Blackjack Trainer and I have learned enough to say it has helped me become a better player.
You probably already know this, but as good as the Trainer is, it has a few fawls. Such as when a high card appears just about every time like clockwork it equals This makes the Trainer seem to have somewhat unrealistic outcomes.
I would like this because I was playing the App and stayed on 16 vs a dealer 10 in a high true count and it said my play was wrong. I think this would be a cool addition. Can someone post the correct basic strategy deviatons for a hard 10?
Someone please correct me if I am wrong. I noticed the trainer looked different and saw that it had been updated. No, you are likely being confused by the way it pays the bet and then rebets the same amount. I know that my question may be silly, but I am looking for simple methods to win, the casino give us a lot of possibilities and it confuses. The worst blackjack rule give more opportunities than other games. Which rules are best? Winning balance always goes the line of sinusoid. Thought you should know.
See notes from others as well. This new version has bugs. Playing 6D, H17, LS. I made sure the new site owners are aware of these comments. So with Ace,7 vs a dealer 5, you would double. With 3,4,Ace you would stand, because doubling is not allowed after you hit.
Same situation on the I-pad version and the I-Mac desktop version, inability to hit the second hand after splitting.. Sometimes when I split aces I only receive one card on the first ace and no card on the second ace. Just wondering if anyone else is getting errors such as these.
Now that the message boards are reopened, these kinds of questions will get faster and more accurate answers there. I too find the white border glaring and gives me a headache. Needs to be toned down or different color softer on the eyes. Your trainer is the best out there that I have been using these past 30 years. It amazes me to see soo many players play by the seat of their pants having not a clue what they are doing. CVCX is a slightly less expensive option that handles many simulation questions.
While this improvement is small, every little bit helps. For a card counter, surrender is considerably more valuable for several reasons. The amount of benefit surrender provides for a counter depends on almost everything that can change in the game, penetration, bet spread, etc. If you need an answer, get some software to check your specific conditions. See Blackjack Surrender Explained.
What are they doing to this site? What happened to the original strategy page, where you selected the number of decks and dealer hits or stands on soft 17 etc.? The Strategy Engine is still where it has been for years: I recommend posting this question on the newly re-opened blackjack forums to see if anyone can run a simulation for you with these conditions and betting strategy. In the short run, if you are lucky you will win. If you are unlucky you will lose.
But you always have the best chance by playing correctly. Again, I am sure about my counting and the only thing would be a shallow penetration or software that does not use randomly a full deck of cards. Or where am I wrong? You would only expect to reach the exact expected end count if you saw every card in the deck. The trainer mimics what you will see in a real casino, shuffling after the end of the hand where the 35th card is dealt in the single deck game. The deck s are normal, and randomly shuffled.
Is that because of penetration or??? I really enjoy your practice platform. I was wondering, can we play online and make money or should we avoid that and only play in casinos? Card counting is not much of an option online, although the possibility does exist in the live-dealer games that a few places offer.
The bonuses and promotions can also be profitable sometimes, but these days it is tough to get an actual positive play at online casinos. So it really depends on what you want from the game. All set now, and back to work. Will you post something in this section when the new version is out? I want to wait and get the latest. In the mean time what book or video do you recommend on winning at blackjack? I have only played about 5 times not counting cards at the casinos on the 21 plus 3 card tables and have had some decent luck, especially the 3 card bet and would like to learn a bit more about that betting too.
Thanks for your practice game, it has been helpful. Things can certainly change quickly. BlackjackInfo has a new owner who took over this month. I know the new team has some excellent resources available for blackjack trainer software. If you are referring to the other product on this page, Casino Verite is not involved in these changes, and the latest version is available as always at the provided Amazon links.
Going to Vegas in Sept. I have basic strategy down. If you plan to count, you will need to look a lot harder to find decent regular shuffled games at that level. The first thing to check is make sure that blackjack pays 3: Check TI for some decent low-limit blackjack tables, or look downtown.
The rules are generally going to be 6 deck or 8 deck, dealer hits soft 17, no surrender. Yes, you are right that Flash is dying. My development of the new mobile-friendly HTML5 version has been stalled a bit while my family prepares to move this summer. And yes, I get about an equal number of complaints about the game being rigged to be too easy and too hard.
Ken, I just jumped on the trainer after a few months absence. Started reading the comments and noticed that you will be launching a revised version. Any idea of the approximate launch date? Looking forward to the new version. Thanks again for a great strategy trainer! I will resume development in August, so I now expect a launch in the fall at the earliest. Assuming the same rules, BS, and betting pattern?
If prior history is repeated, I will be inundated with emails asking why I made the game so much harder to beat, along with an equal number asking why I made it so much easier to beat! That would be called luck. What algorithm is used for card shuffling? I think the trainer play along me. When is using late surrender with the dealer ace trainer first offers surrendering instead of insurance.

The total of any hand is the sum of the card values in the hand. Players must decide whether to stand, hit, surrender, double down, or split. The dealer acts last and must hit on 16 or less and stand on 17 through The objective of blackjack is: As mentioned at the top, all cards count their face value in blackjack.
A hand containing a totals Another containing a queen-5 totals It is always assumed that the ace counts as 11 unless so doing would make your hand total exceed 21, in which case the ace reverts to a value of 1.
So if a player was dealt a , drew one more card which was a 9, the player busted i. A hard hand is any hand that either does not contain an ace, of if it does, counts the ace as 1. Any hand that contains an ace that counts as 11 is known as a soft hand. For example A-5 is a soft 16; A is a soft 18; and A-3 is a soft When you receive your first two cards and one of them is an ace, count the ace as Often when you are dealt a soft hand and draw more cards your hand will convert to a hard hand.
For example, suppose a player is dealt a 5-A which is a soft 16, and he draws another card. Suppose the draw card was a 6. The player now has a hard 12 i. The reason you need to know the difference between a hard and soft hand in blackjack is because the playing strategy is often different even though the total of the hand is the same.
For example, a hard 16 is played differently than an A-5 soft Blackjack is played on a semi-circular table covered with a felt cloth that usually seats up to a maximum of 7 players. A trained casino dealer is responsible for dealing the cards by strict casino protocols, collecting losing player bets, paying off winning bets, and generally keeping the game moving along at an acceptable pace. In most casinos, cash is not used to make bets. The dealer will convert your cash into chips and slide the chips toward you.
Be sure to place the chips neatly stacked in front of you. Most casinos allow players to play more than one hand per round, assuming there are empty spots on the table. If a player does this, he must make a wager in each betting spot that he wishes to receive a hand.
In most casinos, a player is required to wager double the table minimum on each hand when playing more than one hand. Every table should have signage that specifies what the minimum and maximum betting limits are. So before you sit down to play, be sure to check the betting limits posted on the table. Prior to the deal of the cards, all players must make a bet by placing chips in their respective betting boxes. Every player and the dealer will receive two cards.
The two player cards can be dealt either face up, or face down. In this case you should not handle the cards. In games in which the dealer deals from the hand by pitching the cards to the players single- or double-deck games , the player cards are usually dealt both face down.
In these games it is permissible for the player to handle the cards with one hand only, and the cards must always be above the table. This means you want the dealer to give another card to your hand. In shoe games, indicate to the dealer that you want a hit by making a beckoning motion with your finger or tapping the table behind your cards with your finger. In hand-held games, scratch the edges of the cards in your hand lightly on the felt.
If you have two like cards e. When you split, you must make another bet equal to your original bet, just place your chip next to the original chip bet on the hand. When you pair split, you are playing each card as a separate hand and you can draw as many cards as you like to each hand, except split aces; most casinos will allow only one draw card to each ace.
For example, if you were dealt a pair of 8s, and split, you would have two separate hands with a count of 8 in each hand. You are required to play out one of the split hands on your right first to completion before the other.
In shoe games, you indicate that you want to split by placing another chip next to the original chip. For hand-held games, toss the two cards you want to split face up on the layout and then make the secondary wager. Most casinos will also allow players to split any value cards such as a jack-ten or queen-king, although, as you will soon learn about pair splitting , this is not a recommended playing strategy.
This means you are satisfied with the total of the hand and want to stand with the cards you have. In shoe games, indicate that you want to stand by waving your hand over the cards, palm down. In hand-held games, tuck your cards under the chips that you have in the betting box. This playing option allows you to double your initial bet in return for receiving one and only one draw card.
In most casinos, you can only double down after you receive your first two cards and before drawing another card. To signal the dealer that you want to double down in shoe-dealt games, just place your chip next to the original chip bet on the hand. In hand-held games, toss your cards on the table face-up and then make the secondary bet.
This playing option is sometimes permitted. It allows a player to forfeit the hand immediately with an automatic loss of half the original bet. Once a player draws a card, the surrender option is no longer available. If the dealer has a blackjack hand, then surrender is not available. The player is no longer involved in that round. Another type of surrender is sometimes offered and it is known as early surrender.
