Card counting tilting the odds in your favor

Card counting works and gamblers use a card counting scheme achieve an edge over the gambling den.

The reason for this is easy.

Low cards favor the casino because they help her acquire winning totals on her hands when she is stiff (has a 12, thirteen, fourteen, 15, or 16 total on his initial two cards).

In casino vingt-et-un, you can stand on your stiffs if you choose to, but the house cannot.

The house has no decision 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 rich the deck is in high cards that will bust them.

The high cards favour the player because they might bust the house when he hits his stiffs and also blackjacks are made with aces and tens.

Despite the fact blackjacks are, evenly allocated between the dealer and the player, the fact is that the gambler gets paid more (3:2) when he gets a blackjack so the player has an advantage.

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

You only need to know when the deck is rich or depleted in high cards and you can jump your bet when the edge is in your favour.

This is a basic breakdown of how card-counting systems work, but gives you an understanding into why the rationale works.

When gambling on twenty-one over the longer term card counting will help in changing the odds in your favor by to around 2%.
