The Most Important Blackjack Tips for Beginners

I've often been asked about my favorite blackjack tips for beginners. While many people believe that it's necessary to learn how to count cards like an expert mathematician, this isn't really the case. At first, the best thing that anyone can do is practice each and every day for at least an hour or two. Now, with that being said, you can't really just go into the game and start winning. In my experience, you'll want to start out online in a free room with a basic strategy chart. Finding a chart isn't a difficult task as I've found that there is one online for every single variant and every single possible house rule. When I play a six-deck game in a venue that allows the dealer to hit on a soft 16, I usually don't have trouble finding a chart that goes along with this. The glory of the internet means that I can refer to it as I play.

The most important of all of the blackjack tips for beginners, at least as far as I am concerned, is to never deviate from the strategy. Too often, people who are new to the game will disregard the mathematics and simply play on a whim, flying by the seat of their pants. This is almost always a bad idea because you're leaving things up to luck at this point when blackjack is clearly a game that is based purely on mathematical odds. It's important to remember that no one strategy will work for you 100% of the time but it will greatly improve your chances of making money instead of losing it.
