High Low Blackjack strategy
It is now well known that players who are able to count the cards while playing Blackjack in online casino or in offline casino can win a lot. I should first explain the principals of this strategy and then pass to practical part.
The main idea of High Low strategy is to constantly follow the calculation of high and low activities.
1. High level cards are king, queen, jack and tens.
2. Low cards are 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6
3. 7,8 and 9 are neutral cards.
So, if there are more high cards left in a deck this only means that a player now has the advantage over a dealer. In other words the player has more chances to get Blackjack and the dealer has more chances to bust.
The reason for this is that according to casino rules, dealer cant stand if he/she has 16 points or less. Consequently if a dealer has 14 points on his hands and he gets 10 it is a bust.
However if there are more low cards left in a deck the dealer has more chances to win. His third card can be 2,3 or 4 ( just to remind that dealer can stand once he has collected 17 points).
High Low Method formulas
All cards are divided into 3 main groups:
1. High cards are king, queen, jack and tens. (+1)
2. Low cards are 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. (0)
3.7,8 and 9 are neutral cards. (-1)
You should start the calculations with 0 and then add 1 each time the low card is taken. Neutral cards do not change our calculation and when high card is taken you should deduct 1 from total.
Card Action Count
10 -1 -1
2 +1 0
4 +1 +1
8 0 +1
3 +1 +2
2 +1 +3
The higher is the total figure the more high cards are left in a deck and consequently more chances for you to win. The idea is to bet more when the total count is high. And vice verse when the total amount is low, lower the bet or play following main Blackjack rules or, stop playing if you can. Watch others playing.
To conclude, you don’t have to be genius to do this. All you should do is concentrate on the game and follow the rules. And the last advice. Don’t trust websites promising you a key to secret strategy that will guarantee you 100% positive result- it doesn’t exist. Such stories are for naive players.
