Busting Popular Blackjack Myths
February 11th, 2013 by Site Admin
Blackjack is a lively social game, and blackjack tables at casinos are full of fun, light chatter, and laughter. Most of the players populating blackjack tables know nothing about the game, but believe they do. Such players often make the mistake of taking blackjack myths to be facts.
One of the biggest blackjack myths is that the dealer’s hidden card is always a ten, which is mathematically impossible because only 30 percent of the deck comprises cards worth 10.
Blackjack players also have the habit of thinking that bad blackjack players at the table will reduce their chances of winning the game. A blackjack players’ bad decisions hardly ever hurt the other players’ games.
Some blackjack players also feel that counting cards is illegal, which is just not true. Counting cards is perfectly legal as long as it is done mentally and no external device is used for the purpose. Casinos, however, dislike card counters and can tell a player to leave if they suspect him/her to be a card counter.
Blackjack is a mathematical game, which has nothing to do with myths and superstitions. Players can listen to their “gut feelings,” but they are better off learning how to implement correct strategies.
