Armada Strategies for Spanish 21


Without question the most popular casino table game since the late 1960s has been blackjack. Now a new "improved" version of this venerable game has taken the casinos by storm. Called Spanish 21 or Spanish Blackjack, it is a game that offers many more favorable and exciting options for the players than does traditional blackjack. For example, players can now double down on any number of cards and split pairs up to four times. When a player gets a blackjack and the dealer gets a blackjack -- the player wins and is paid at 3 to 2! The player also wins when he gets a 21 and the dealer gets a 21. In addition, special bonuses are given for five, six and seven card player 21s and various suited and unsuited hands that contain three sevens. These are just a few of the exciting variations to be found in this popular new game. Unfortunately, what the casinos give with one hand, they take away with the other. To offer such wonderful options and still maintain an edge over the players, the casinos have removed the 10-spot cards from the deck (although the jacks, queens and kings remain), thus reducing the overall number of player blackjacks in the game and limiting the dealer's chances of busting stiff hands. Why have the casinos done this? Because traditional blackjack strategies when used against Spanish 21 will result in large house edges -- anywhere from three percent or higher -- and large player losses! That's right -- if you employ the traditional basic strategies against this new game you are sunk! The casinos are confident that this new game will lure players by its dazzling rules and exciting atmosphere -- players who will then proceed to happily lose. They are also confident that they have created a game that the players will be unable to beat even with traditional card counting strategies. But the casinos have not banked on Frank Scoblete's Armada Strategies which can give the players a monetary edge over the game! The Armada Strategies for Spanish 21 is composed of three parts -- the Armada Play Basic Strategy which is the correct play for every player hand against every dealer upcard, the Armada Ruse for maximizing comps while simultaneously reducing risk, and the Armada Money Management system. Remember: players cannot use the traditional blackjack basic strategies against Spanish 21 without giving the casinos a big edge! But if players follow the advice of gaming's premier writer, Frank Scoblete, and employ the Armada Strategies they will turn the tables on the casinos and beat them at their own -- supposedly unbeatable -- game! The Armada Strategies for Spanish 21 is the only book on the market devoted exclusively to this rapidly growing game.

Scoblete’s style is witty and inviting, which makes him the perfect town crier for promoting Speed Count, the method espoused here. Props are given to Dan Pronovost, who originally came up with the method. Scoblete’s role is to share the good word, and he does so in this fun, easy-to-use resource.

Golden Touch Blackjack Revolution


Maybe you've heard of card counting at blackjack, or even tried it. Blackjack books all say how easy it is, and at first glance it might seem simple enough? Just add numbers, subtract numbers, then divide numbers, and maybe multiply numbers, then keep track of the total. Then figure out how much you should bet. And then also memorize 18 to 200 or more changes to basic strategy according to the various counts. Then try not to have the casino bosses know you are counting cards and changing your strategy based on the count. Whew! That's a lot of work! This book introduces the revolutionary Speed Count, the easiest advantage blackjack method ever developed for the general public. It will forever change the way average players play blackjack.
