Yet that doesn't stop all of us from trying to beat the casino. Specifically blackjack. We all think we're better than blackjack.

We're not, of course. But we think we are. I compiled this list of 11 popular strategies for beating blackjack and ranked them here, starting with the least effective and building toward the most effective.


Even William H. Macy is just an illusion.

Superstitions. I've seen tons of blackjack superstitions. None of these actually do anything - but either do lucky shirts, avoiding black cats, turning off the light switch three times to keep Charlie from dying, or any of the other day-to-day superstitions people swear by.

So it's not going to change your blackjack fortunes if you violate your superstitions - even if you let new players enter during a shoe... you don't bother saying "Nice hit" to someone who gets a six on a 15... you wish yourself good luck on your first-card ace... you tap twice instead of scratching the felt to hit... or forget your lucky cowboy hat. Gamblor is immune to superstition.

  • Gut feelings. It seems that most people who sit down at a blackjack table have a rough understanding of textbook blackjack strategy. At least on the most basic level. The "gut feelings" strategy is a mix of playing with basic blackjack strategy but also having feelings. For example: "I'm going to stay on this 16, I just know the next card is a 10." (I've seen my friend Bruce almost attack people for that statement. More than once.)

The problem here, from a mathematical perspective - aka my favorite perspective - is that blackjack strategy is constructed to give you an edge if you adhere to it without deviation and play for a long, long time. It's like a thousand monkeys on a thousand typewriters - eventually they're going to write "A Tale of Two Cities". But as soon as you deviate from the strategy for a gut feeling, that's like telling your monkeys that they're now trying to accidentally write Sarah Palin's "Going Rogue: An American Life".

  • Easy card counting. I have three different levels of card counting on this list, because not all card counting is created equal. Some methods are so basic that you can learn them in 15 minutes. Some take months or years of practice.

Easy card counting might give you a small bump. One strategy like this is called ace/five - that's where you start with the number zero, add one for every five dealt and subtract one for every ace. If the count is more than two, you double your previous bet. If the count is less than two, you bet the minimum. It's simple, and marginally effective across a large data set.

    • if the sum of his face card and hole card is better than your hand you may want to hit.
      BUT...... if his total is less than 17 and your hand is better than 15, I would stand and let the dealer hit and hopefully go over.
      Never split a winner, anything that's a 20 18
      Never take insurance, it's a suckers bet
      Don't double down unless the dealer is holding less than 17 and your holding a 10 or 11
      Make friends with the dealer, tip them on Blackjacks they deal you.
      Laugh when you make a stupid decision, and be a good sport.
