Blackjack Cards Counting
Card counting strategy is basically used in the blackjack to estimate the probability of the next hand whether it will be beneficial for the dealer or player. The card counters are considered as the beneficial players that strive to reduce the house edge through maintaining the balance of low and high valued cards shown to the players. The benefit of card counting is that it enables the players to place higher wagers without any risk because the count provides benefits as well as reducing loses in the poor count. The card counting also makes the players capable to change their decisions on the base of the rest cards.
The principle of difference in the card counting is the statistical data states that the high valued cards like tens and aces are advantageous for the players instead of low valued cards that are advantageous for the dealer more. Large number of aces and ten cards in the deck improves the player’s probability to get the natural blackjack and get the payout in 3:2 when the dealer doesn’t have blackjack. Presence of large number of tens also improves the player’s opportunities to win on doubling the cards. Low cards instead are advantage for the dealer. In the blackjack, the dealer hits stiff hands when its total is between 12 to 16, here the player can hit or stand. So the dealer having total between12 to 16 can bust any time if its next card is ace. Determining this next card is essential in the card counting.
People think that the card counters won’t require any special mentalities to count the cards since they are not following and remembering the certain cards. But they assign points to every card that determines the value of the particular card and they can only check the total of the cards values.
Generally the card counters assign positive, zero or negative value on every card. At the time of distributing the cards, when such card is played, the count is regulated by the counting value of cards. If the low cards are played they increase the count because in this way the lower cards are outside and the high valued cards are in the deck so the card count is increased. On the other side the high cards reduce the count in the reverse manner.
The aim of the card counting system is assigning values that are associated with the Effect Of removal (EOR) of card which determines the actual impact of excluding the played card from the game. It ultimately alters the value of house advantage. A player can estimate the consequence of removing all the played cards and determine the latest house advantage value on the base of the rest cards available in the hole.
The best card counting system is a system that a player utilizes and provides the large income return in the given duration when the cards are played at the fixed rate. On this basis the card counting systems target to get an efficient balance in three classes:
Wagering correlation: This class offers the player a positive probability to place the wagers when the total of all combinations of the un-played cards give a positive expectation. Gaming Capability: A part of the desired outcomes resulted through the modified gaming strategy designed on the behalf of the already known changed combinations of the cards. Insurance correlation: A part of the desired outcome from the counting cards is obtained through the insurance wagers which are advantageous in the higher counting values.
