Blackjack,A Staking Plan.
Let me first assume that you are
an experienced blackjack player.
If you are,then you know
when to bet,split and double down etc.
If you are new to
blackjack,and want to learn the basics,this article is not for you.
There are however tables available for new players that will
point you in the right direction.
They are all basically all
the same,with just slight variations and preferences.I concur with
most of the tables available,but perhaps split and double down much
less than recommended.
You can get these tables online from any search engine - just
enter "blackjack strategy" for a great selection.
tables to guide the new player can at first seem very daunting.
I would not recommend you try to remember those tables.Just log
onto any low stake game,and play.
Refer to the tables for
guidance as you play.It is amazing how quickly you pick up the
procedure,and pretty soon it all becomes automatic.
article started,i assume you are a good blackjack player,and
generally finish level or win.
Blackjack is moderately
entertaining when playing,but i can think of better ways to pass the
You have to play to win - and not take all day about
If you adhere to this staking plan,and you are a solid
player,you will win consistently.
There is a big "but"in this
equation - MANY OF YOU WILL NOT STICK TO THIS STAKING PLAN.
know that because i have great trouble myself,and i KNOW it works -
and you are just taking my word for it.
Blackjack is a game
where a good player and the dealer are evenly matched.
evens over a long session.
Maybe a good player can just about
tilt it over into their favour over time with level stakes,but its
an almighty struggle,and maybe not really worth it if it takes a
long time(you might as well get a proper job,and that is something
to be avoided).
THE STAKING PLAN.
The only advantage you have over the dealer is the stakes you
play for - use this to your advantage - it is the only one you have
The one thing that can sabotage any blackjack campaign
is the long losing run.
Losing runs have to be eliminated,and
winning runs enhanced.
With this staking plan you will always
work in SHORT SESSIONS.
This is why it is only viable for
WHAT TO DO WHEN
YOU ARE LOSING.
(THAT IS WHEN YOU HAVE LESS MONEY
THAN WHEN YOU STARTED SESSION.)
If you have less credit than
the amount you deposited,you must NEVER increase your stakes.
Just play for level stakes,and
either play through till this sessions credit has gone,or maybe till
you are fed up and bored and log off.
The biggest danger when
behind,is that it seems so easy to get straight and into profit with
just one or two larger bets.
You reason that you are a good
blackjack player and are statistically slightly better than evens to
Therefore as you are losing right now,it must
swing into your favour very soon.
Please resist this
reasoning - a big losing run is now possible,and may take weeks of
good play to repair the damage.
I want you to be bored when
you are losing .
Log off and come back in an hour or
so,refreshed and eager to get into profit in your next separate

winning exciting and exhilarating - LOSE SMALL - WIN BIG.
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU ARE WINNING.
(THAT IS WHEN YOU HAVE MORE MONEY
THAN WHEN YOU STARTED SESSION)
THERE ARE 2 CHOICES - PLAY
RATCHET PLAN - OR GO FOR BIG WIN.
As soon as you are in front you must increase your stakes.
A good guide is - if you are just in front,say at start of
game,double your stakes.
As,hopefully your winning run
continues,so will your stakes.
For simplicity lets say you
play for $5 when losing and $10 when in front.
This $10 will
increase as you climb that winning ladder.
Use this -
As soon as you get OVER $200 profit your bet will increase to
As soon as you get OVER $300 profit your bet will
increase to $30(10%)
and so on.
You MUST however apply
that ratchet effect when you start to slip down that winning ladder.
NEVER EVER drop your stakes.
If you were playing for $40(i.e $400 + profits)and have now
slipped to say $380 - log off.
Job well done,and you can
again come back again in an hour or so refreshed and ready to start
with ANOTHER SESSION.
You may have only been playing for a
couple of minutes,and want to continue as you are having such a good
Please resist this temptation.
Take your profits
and go - anyway whats so bad with taking a good profit after a short
session of blackjack ? - it beats sitting there for hour after hour
and finishing level thats for sure.
PLAN 2 - GO FOR BIG WIN.
Once you are in front,i am quite relaxed about how you play and
what your stakes are.
Maybe you have got stuck $30 or $40
dollars in front and can't beat the dealer and throw it all in on
one bet - is this stupid ? - no i don't think so.
As long as
you are in front(yes i know it is now your money)i don't see
anything wrong with it.
However you must have the discipline
when making this bet to immediately snap back to your minimum stake
if you lose - not easy !.
Also you may want a more relaxed
staking plan to the ratchet,and again,as long as you are in
credit,you really can do what you want,particularly if you have
already had a couple of winning sessions earlier on,and want to
really push on for a great winning day.
To sum up,you simply
must at all costs avoid that catastrophic losing session - this is
where the casinos make their big profits.
It also takes a
long time to recoup those losses,and it also demoralizes you,and
depletes the overall confidence.
Stay in control when losing.
Protect your winnings with a ratchet
Maybe from time to time go for that
reckless big winning session.
