# Blackjack Systems You Should Know and Why

Blackjack systems are so called because of the negative expectation game associated with it. It is mathematically proven that the player has no better than even odds to win every hand played. Regardless of the game, the player receives the same amount of reward as the dealer for his or her play. The only difference is that the player has the opportunity to bust the dealer, inferring that the player’s odds are even more even.

There are several popular systems including the Paroli betting system, 1-3-2-4, and card counting. While the Paroli system may seem the least complicated, it is actually the most dangerous. The problem lies in that the player believes they can still improve the odds of the game by implementing progressive betting. In actuality, the probability of each play is still the same, even after taking the cards out of the deck and adding a few more.

In addition, the problem lies with the assumption that the dealer has to hit to a lesser degree than 1-3-2-4. In other words, assume the dealer has a 25% chance to bust on any given hit. It is important to note that nothing has changed as far as the game is concerned.

While the mathematics behind blackjack card counting may be subtle, the player does not need to memorize every card played by each of the cards in the deck. Instead, the player should be able to quickly and easily determine the missing cards from the deck. After a card is drawn out of the deck, the player checks whether the last played card was +, 0, or -1. If it was, then the value of the cards in the deck is -1. The player then adds 1 to the running count.

When the cards in the deck are replenished, the running count can be calculated. Above, we assumed that there are 52 cards in a deck. The formula for the card counting per deck is Die = +1 for every 2 cards played, i.e. 2 decks in a deck. The result is a negative number, as you have less than 52 cards remaining. Therefore, you are still playing against the dealer. However, the result of the die, once it is divided by 2 (12.5:2), is much closer to the actual card count product, which is the true even-money bet.

To some people this may not seem as simple as just counting cards, however. That is why they are called card counting systems. Card counting seeks to take advantage of the positive and negative results of the die thrower. You can visually notice this by counting the number of times the dice is thrown to the player and then thrower. There are two separate bets, Hi Lo and Spread. Hi Lo is the lower casino bet and the higher risk. However, it pays out at 2 to 1. Spread is the opposite, meaning that the more the players bet, the more the house pays out. Therefore, people who are skilled at this art are sure to make a lot of money.

The even-money bet is the final arbiter for the dealer. This bet is placed after the cards have been dealt and before the bets have been placed. Generally, the dealers spread plays a bigger role in the games, as the initial part of the game is automated. With the shuffling of the card, the dealer makes sure that all the cards are stacked in their proper place. Upon placing this bet, the player has to make a choice. They may or may not win. If the dealer wins, the player does not have to pay the vig. However, they would have to pay the commission, known as 5% of the winnings, to the casino.

### There are a lot of betting strategies used in blackjack

There are a lot of betting strategies used in blackjack. However, perhaps the most important of all is that players should not greedy, as the situation could change and it could not be predicted. Others would say that playing only with hard earned money is not advisable. This would be a wrong way of thinking, as it is extremely difficult to win money when you cannot predict the outcome of the game. The stakes are real and not virtual. The money one places on the table is not real. It does not belong to him.

Of course, gambling could be a lot of fun. However, it could also ruin a person, and this is why it is important to subtract your losses before counting anything. When you start a game, it is difficult to predict whether you will win or lose. So, be careful in placing your bets. In some cases, a few players lose all their money only in the very beginning of the game. Do not be an addict!
