# Basic Blackjack Strategy

The behavior of the participant in the game space begins when he carefully observes the course of the game, especially noting which cards have already come out and anticipating which ones are only going to appear. Such hope is simply based on mathematics: since in the game we have a total of 13 different cards, the fall of any of them will be equal to 1/13. Another thing is that with each specific card the numerical value of the points is related and as in the game there is a series of cards of the same value, which means dispersion, that is to say measure of variation, it is reduced, and the probability of falling value singular of the letter is equal to 1/10. For example, it can be said that the player will receive the face card of 10 points with the probability of 4/13.

Then such a result is possible when the dealer has very little chance of excess and the player has a combination with the sum of points more than 12. Here there is a risk of falling into a trap, i.e. taking a card and receiving an excess, or do not take and give the predominance to the casino. In such cases, it is recommended for players to run rather than quickly over the barriers, that is, to risk and complete their combination for a new card, since the probability of falling of the card necessary for 21 points differs a little from the card for excess. But it is a personal matter for each player.

## Split, increased chances of winning

In the course of the game, the player is allowed to divide his initial composition into two of the same value, if his first two cards have fallen by double, that is, they are cards 5 and 5, or 8 and 8 etc. If, once the additional cards have been dealt, the player again obtains double in one of the combinations, the split can be done again. Gambling houses have a different split limit, but splitting cards is usually allowed no more than four times. However, it is not always necessary to resort to such operations, because its possibility can be missed or vice versa give a predominance to the casino.

In general, it’s best to go by the dealer’s up card. It is necessary to split always except for the doubles mentioned above, if the dealer has an open card of value from 2 to 7. Experienced players never split, if the dealer’s open card is the ace. And besides, it is worth refraining from the split, if the dealer’s open card is worth 8 to 10, but it all depends on the situation.

## Floating bets strategy

It is a very simple strategy that allows the player to avoid big losses, and in case of a series of victories to receive a very expensive prize. But here as always there are some exclusions, the details of which will be understandable by understanding the essence of the strategy. It consists of the following: the player before starting the game sets for himself the minimum and maximum sizes of bets. The game starts from the choice bet. From now on it is necessary to observe the following policy: if the round has been lost, the size of the next bet must be equal to the minimum limit, if the game has been won, the next bet is equal to the maximum value.

As you can see, the only awkward moment here is the game at the maximum bet, since the series of victories is not a guaranteed consequence. That is why you can expand the betting range and enter the average value, and periodically make the bet on it.

## Martingeil Bet Doubling Strategy

It is one of the most famous policies of the game, it is used in most of the table games, it does not matter if it is roulette or blackjack. Its meaning is that every time after the previous bet passes in favor of the casino, the player doubles the bet until he wins. Thus, all expenses are covered and the player has a positive balance.
