  1. There's a way to win & not get kicked out. Learn how to count cards drunk. They will never know.

  2. The thing I was surprised to find out and he didn't talk about here is that the dealer is expected to bust (any player hitting on 16 or less) about 28% of the time. If you bust first you lose even if the dealer busts too. On some of those medium hands give the dealer a chance to bust. Other than that, doubling down is not always a good play, I play on a simulator and can't count the number of times on 10 or 11 i double down and get a 2. Unless you're ahead and can afford losing double, or unless you're behind and want to take a chance to catch up without increasing your initial bet, just hit as you normally would, if you win great, if you get a 2, you can hit again to get as close to 21 as possible. Also you aren't going to win every hand, impossible, you aren't going to lose every hand, impossible. Sometimes your fate is sealed before the cards are even dealt, you're going to lose no matter what you do, or you're going to win no matter what you do. So while "playing the math" seems like a good idea all the time, I advise playing feel, if you're at 15 and think a 10 is next, just stand no matter what the dealer is showing, if you think a 6 or under is next, go ahead and hit, if the dealer is showing 6 or lower, maybe decide to let the dealer bust instead of potentially you. Giving dealer chance to bust, possible win, you bust, no chance to win.

  3. people are here for playing blackjack irl. im just tryna get on the discord bot money leaderboard >;c

  4. 'Monkey' refers to any 10 at the baccarat table, 10, J, Q, K. Asians sometimes refer to it in blackjack as well, with the same meaning, but of course they wear SARS masks even in the casinos.

  5. @ 8:03 the 3rd player & the dealer both hit & get a 21, but, the dealer took the players money, lol… 🙁
    The player just bets again!
