vingt-et-un Card Counting

Card counting is an ability that is employed by players of card games to achieve an edge by following cards which have been dealt. This provides the player an idea of the sum of cards, which have to be dealt with. Counting cards is a skill that is more beneficial in blackjack than in any other card game.

In twenty-one, a player is at an advantage when the remaining deck has "high cards." Big value cards can be faces and aces. The counter in the gambling den uses such opportunities by placing greater bets, as and when they happen. A lot of adept gamblers use the makeup of the shoe to alter their overall course of action. Amateur gamblers sometimes have difficulty while trying fast card counting and may be subject to errors, when it comes to working with dealt decks of cards. Twenty-one card counting is a business by itself. Millions are made or squandered, by both the gamblers and the gambling dens, depending on card counting strategies in use.

Old guard players however vow that a more complex card counting approach is more subject to problems, negating the additional accuracy enabled by the use of technology.

With the game increasing in appeal in casinos around the globe, there are newer game plans coming up every other day. One can discover easily thousands of net sites sharing with you hints on counting cards and the across the board tactic to make cash playing 21.


I have gambled on countless of rounds of 21. I began working my way into the gambling dens when I was 16. I have wagered on online 21, I have counted cards, and worked as part of a team for a short while. With all that said I have still lost all kinds of cash at blackjack. The gambling dens have made it very hard to defeat the game.

I still enjoy the game and gamble on a frequent basis. Over the years I have wagered on a type of chemin de fer called "The Take it Leave it Method". You certainly won’t get loaded with this method or beat the house, however you will have a lot of fun. This tactic is built on the fact that vingt-et-un appears to be a game of runs. When you are on fire your on fire, and when you’re not you’re NOT!

I gamble with basic strategy twenty-one. When I do not win I wager the lowest amount allowed on the successive hand. If I don’t win again I bet the lowest amount allowed on the next hand again etc. Whenever I hit I take the payout paid to me and I bet the initial wager again. If I win this hand I then leave the winnings paid to me and now have double my original bet on the table. If I succeed again I take the winnings paid to me, and if I succeed the next hand I leave it for a total of 4 times my original wager. I continue wagering this way "Take it Leave it etc". Once I do not win I lower the bet back down to the original value.

I am very disciplined and never "chicken out". It gets very exciting at times. If you win a few hands in sequence your wagers go up very fast. Before you know it you are betting $100-200/ hand. I have had fantastic streaks a number of times now. I departed a $5 table at the Luxor a number of years back with $750 after 30 minutes using this technique! And a few weeks ago in Las Vegas I left a table with $1200!

You have to understand that you can say good-bye to a lot faster this way too!. But it really makes the game more thrilling. And you will be surprised at the streaks you witness gamble this way. Here is a guide of what you would bet if you continue winning at a $5 game.

Bet 5 dollar
Take 5 dollar paid to you, leave the first $5 bet

Wager 5 dollar
Leave 5 dollar paid to you for a total bet of 10 dollar

Bet ten dollar
Take ten dollar paid to you, leave the initial $10 wager

Wager 10 dollar

It is herculean to go on a streak this long, but it can happen. And when it does you mustn’t deviate and lower your wager or the end result will not be the same.
