Counting cards getting the expectation in your favor

Card counting works and gamblers use a card counting approach obtain an advantage over the casino.

The reasoning behind this is easy.

Low cards favor the croupier in blackjack and high cards favor the player.

Low cards favor the casino because they help them make winning totals on their hands when she is stiff (has a twelve, 13, 14, 15, or sixteen total on their 1st 2 cards).

In casino vingt-et-un, you can stay on your stiffs if you want to, but the dealer cannot.

The casino has no choice to make, but you do and this is your edge. The rules of gambling on vingt-et-un require that dealers hit stiffs no matter how loaded the shoe is in high cards that will bust him.

The high cards favour the player because they may bust the casino when he hits their stiffs and also because both tens and Aces mean blackjacks.

Although blackjacks are, evenly distributed between the casino and the player, the fact is that the gambler gets paid more (3:2) when he gets a blackjack so the gambler has an edge.

You do not have to tally the data of each of the individual card to know when you have an advantage over the house.

You simply need to know at what point the shoe is flush or depleted in high cards and you can elevate your bet when the odds are in your favor.

This is a basic explanation of why card-counting plans work, but gives you an insight into why the logic works.

When gambling on 21 over the longer term card counting will assist in changing the expectation in your favour by approximately 2 percent.
