In this article today I’m going to discuss several dirty tricks casinos use to get you to spend more money, and how you can fight those tricks and take the bank yourself.
Everybody knows going in that the odds are stacked in the casinos favor when it comes to gambling. It doesn’t seem to matter though, we still have a great time and love doing it. You can help stack the deck in your favor, so to speak, by following a few simple rules that a master blackjack player shares.
First, don’t ever bet on a game with a house advantage over natural. The whole point of gambling is to get the house edge down as much as possible and that’s why the casinos are so keen on natural anomalies like aces or sixes or anything like that. Getting the odds in your favor is the whole point of playing, so you have to take advantage of those odds.
Second, throw every card at the dealer. You are not supposed to bet and then worry about what you did bet. In other words, if you let the dealer know that you are uneasy about his dealing, you are allowing your anxiety and worry to take over, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Your brain will keep telling you that you should fold, which is fair enough, because you are a risk taker yourself. But let it happen to you, and you will end up with a bad beat. Don’t let it happen to you.
Next, take advantage of your chances at the table. The whole point of playing is to have a good time, so why sit there lets just observe the other players. If you are at a table with a lot of action, observe the reaction time of other players. When I say observe, I mean wait until it is your turn to bet, then either stand or back away from the betting circle. Why? Because that can tell a lot about what the other players are going to do. If they are going to call, then you probably will as well, unless you have something really good. With players who call very often, I will get a lot of bets and might even win a pot, so it is a risk, but it is a risk worth taking.
Third, with cards that give you a good advantage, you can win the pot with a reasonable hand. Don’t call because you think you are lucky, and don’t raise up, because you think you can steal the pot and go home with it. The fact of the matter is that you are not going to win all the time, and you are going to lose some of the time, but if you can win the pot with a reasonable hand, you will win more often than not.
These are the three most important concepts to your success at the dewabet table. If you want to get better fast, do more research and get your hands on any books or courses you can. Practice your skills and watch the money come in, and decide for yourself if the secrets the Treschitsian family are sharing is worth your time or not. As they say, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
P.S. Some people think that aces make money. Haha, this again. People think pattern recognition is hard to do. Maybe they have never played 3 coins at the same time, and never had 3 coins in a row, and definitely have not made money in BlackJack. It sounds really stupid, but there are people out there who honestly think pocket tens make money. When you let a long streak of coin flips go by, you can see that many times a long streak of rising up and down trends doesn’t necessarily make sense.
For those of you who are not sure, an example is the rate at which a coin turns over on the Roulette wheel. At first the coins have a streak of going up and then falling back down, this is a very consistent rate. If you flip the coin 100 times you will get 25 heads and 25 tails. If a coin had flipped 100 times at the same rate, you would expect 75 tails and 25 heads. However, the probability of getting a head every time it flips is only 82% (Remember that each flip is independent of the other). The odds are just too high. The only really acceptable rate of coin flips is maybe 12 heads and 12 tails every 100 spins, and if you want to cheat, go to the Casino and employ the services of a coin disturbance expert.
