Single Deck Blackjack card counting

11 comments on “Lesson 6 – Card Counting – Single-deck Play”

Hand Example BeforeEvery serious counter should have a good knowledge of how to play single-deck Blackjack, even if you spend 90% of your time at multi-deck games, because when you are able to get to a single deck game, it can be very profitable. The primary lure of the game will become more evident as we get into betting strategies, but take my word for it now: any “big” money you’ll make at Blackjack will probably come from a single-deck game.

Most of you — especially those who are close to Atlantic City — should spend your time practicing instead of playing, all with the idea of taking 5 or 6 trips a year to areas such as Reno or Laughlin. You’ll be much better off playing 60 or 70 hours a year at the single-deck games there than you would be playing several hundred hours at the dismal games A.C. is currently offering. Most of my students from the St. Louis area can fly to Reno on a 3 or 4 day trip for under $300, which includes round-trip airfare and hotel, and since they usually make that much in Blackjack profits per day, they often come home with a $1000 or more in net winnings. You “Eastcoasters” can find similar action in Tunica, MS.

Counting at the Table

To win at single-deck games, you first need to learn another method of counting at a table where the cards are dealt face down. As you will recall from Lesson 5, there is a very structured approach required for counting in order to make sure you’re doing it accurately. I’ll never forget the first time I played single-deck; it was in Vegas and I was used to the, then, four-deck game in Atlantic City. On about the second or third hand, the dealer had a “Blackjack” and everybody threw their cards in, face up. Talk about scrambling; my speed training was tested to its limit, but I got the count before the next hand was dealt. That’s a situation for which you’ll have to be ready and only practice will get you there.

How to count cards in six decks blackjack? | Yahoo Answers

From what I hear, you want to bet more when there are more high cards left than low cards. This is because it will cause the dealer to bust more often. So, you just count how many 9-10-J-Q-K cards are out vs the number of A-2-3-4-5 cards. The catch is, if you start out with a bad deck, you'll probably lose money, but now that you've lost your money there's lots of good cards left. So you need to have enough money to make it work.
Note: In the US counting cards is legal, but the casino is allowed to throw you out and blacklist you for it. I don't know the rules in the UK.
