Blackjack Strategy Video Source & Information:
Around 10:38 I paid a push. Never Bust -1 for a ending total of +2.5 (from +3.5).
Thanks John Smith.
I switched to running the two shoes in series instead of parallel. Much less confusing for me. We won’t get to see how the shoes realign or compare chip stacks as the shoes progress, but that’s a reasonable sacrifice for fewer mistakes.
Six-deck heads-up blackjack comparing “never bust” to basic strategy.
Dealer stands on all 17s. No surrender. Blackjack pays 3:2.
One shoes. ~75% penetration.
The “Never Bust” strategy always stands with a hard 12 or greater.
Each strategy plays off its own shoe, which are exact copies of each other (card values only).
For this series I am not going to show the complete shuffle procedure. As exciting as I know it is for you to watch, it’s far less exciting to watch me set up the second shoe as a copy. I hope I have earned your trust that I am not stacking the deck.
Each player starts with 50 chips.
Flat bet player bets 1 chip per hand.
Table minimum: 1 chip. Table Maximum: 100 chips. This would be the equivalent of a $5/$500 table.
You can also use this (and forthcoming future videos) as a representative scenario to test your betting system or card counting.
I am not a pro dealer, so be nice.
