If you like the fulfillment and excitement of an excellent card game and the elation of winning and making some money with the odds in your favour, gambling on 21 is for you.

So, how do you defeat the house?

Basically when gambling on chemin de fer you are studying the risks and probabilities of the cards in relation to:

1. The cards in your hand

2. What cards can be dealt from the shoe

When betting on vingt-et-un there is statistically a best way to play every hand and this is referred to as basic strategy. If you add card counting that helps you compute the chances of cards being dealt from the deck, then you are able to increase your action amount when the odds are in your favor and decrease them when the edge is not.

You are only going to win under half the hands you wager on, so it is important that you adjust action size when the risks are in your favor.

To do this when wagering on chemin de fer you must use basic strategy and card counting to win.

Basic strategy and counting cards

Since professionals and intellectuals have been studying chemin de fer all kinds of complicated systems have been developed, including but not limited to "card counting" but although the theory is complex counting cards is all in all very easy when you bet on twenty-one.

If when gambling on 21 you count cards properly (even if the game uses more than one deck), you can change the odds to your favor.

Vingt-et-un Basic Strategy

Blackjack basic strategy is amassed around a basic plan of how you bet based upon the hand you receive and is statistically the best hand to play while not counting cards. It tells you when playing vingt-et-un when you need to take another card or hold.

It’s extremely easy to do and is quickly memorized and until then you can find free cards on the internet

Using it when you play twenty-one will bring down the casino’s expectations to near to zero.

Counting cards shifting the odds in your favour

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

The reason for this is simple.

Low cards favour the casino in vingt-et-un and high cards favor the player.

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

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

The dealer has no choice to make, but you do and this is your edge. The rules of betting on vingt-et-un require that dealers hit stiffs no matter how rich the shoe is in high cards that will break her.

The high cards favor the gambler because they might break the dealer when he hits their stiffs and also because both tens and Aces mean blackjacks.

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

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

You only need to know at what point the deck is flush or poor in high cards and you can boost your wager when the odds are in your favor.

This is a simple explanation of why card-counting schemes work, but gives you an insight into how the rationale works.

When wagering on 21 over an extended term card counting will help in altering the expectation in your favor by to around 2 percent.
