There are many distractions in any live casino and a player must stay focused to play their best. The most popular other than slots is the game of Blackjack. The reason for this is the game seems simple and needs a very short learning curve or so many players think. The truth is the game is complex and takes a solid strategy to win or have the chance of winning in a consistent manner. The game is popular in live casinos and also online, as players can understand the game rather quickly at a simple but playable level.
Changing bets based on the count is a smart way to play and the count will tell you when to change your bets. Favorable shoes are the time to raise bets and the bets should be lowered when the deck favors the house.
The player should play single deck if it is available and also play the tables with the best house rules like splitting pairs and then respliting if they pair again. If the double down play can be done on any two cards that is a good rule too. The more favorable the rules are the more money that can be wagered in the middle of the hand. This is powerful when the shoe is in favor of the player.
