Scobe's Quick Tips: #12 and #13 (Blackjack Basic Strategy, Casino Rated Player)

21 February 2003

Scobe's Quick Tip #12:

Blackjack basic strategy often calls for plays that don't seem right but are right.

Here are some:

  • Double down on your Ace-7 against a dealer's 3, 4, 5, 6.
  • Split your 9s against a dealer's 8 and 9 but not against a dealer's 7.
  • Double Ace-8 against a dealer's 6 in single-deck blackjack.

You might not agree with these decisions but -- make them anyway because the computer says to!

For more information on blackjack read Best Blackjack by Frank Scoblete and Blackjack Take the Money and Run by Henry Tamburin.

Scobe's Quick Tip #13:

Spread your play around.

You should have at least three casinos that have you as a rated player. Why is that? Because casinos change their policies and personnel and sometimes these changes might not be to your liking.

If you have several casinos you enjoy, you'll never have to worry that the upcoming changes will ruin your gambling experience.

For more about how to handle casinos read Thrifty Gambling by John Brokopp.
