All the advanced strategies and tips given in this book are useless against the house because the house has the edge. The house has the odds in their favor and will always win more hands than you will. Unless you become a blackjack card counter, you will never be able to overcome the house edge.
- Because a blackjack card counter is not a player who will play against the house to win.
This is a player who places the odds in their favor and hopes they win because of the edge they have. The house does not care who wins the hand because they have the odds in their favor. Again, the house is always at an advantage over the player. The only way the player can have an edge is by taking advantage of the mistakes the house is making and their aversion to them.
Unfortunately, most players are too lazy to learn how to win blackjack.
- They do not have an ethic of winning and use their own cheap emotions to determine if they should quit a game. If you fall into this category, you are not very likely to succeed in beating the game and will just play as long as your bankroll allows. Good players set limits on their bankroll and stick to these limits. If you do not have a limit and you consistently take massive wins, you are a player that can not stick to her bankroll and this should be a cause for alarm and withdrawal. She should be given a quick end to this type of play and hopefully this discipline will serve you well.
- The next lesson in blackjack strategy is to have a definite dream list of what card you want to be dealt when you sit in a particular seat. This is not an easy list since you want your list to be accurate and up-to-date in regards to the currentussions of the game. Such a list should be compiled before your actual game in hopes that the list be a basis for calling for an assist when needed. You should always have at least 3 weeks in which to review the progress of your list and be constantly current. Make sure you dedicate at least 5 hours each day to your list. If you make yourself #1 priority, you will definitely succeed in the game.
