What Really Happens in those Underground Casinos?

By Mike Brunker

Human beings love to gamble. We’ll put our money down on spinning reels, card games, tumbling cubes of ivory, horses, dogs, sporting contests, flips of a coin – even digital representations of any of the above.

But in an age when legal gambling is commonplace in many countries and online wagering – either legal or illegal -- is just a click or two away, why do people continue to patronize risky underground casinos, bet on sports with neighborhood bookies or take a seat at a card game where the “House” is the guy with the big roll of $20s in his pocket?

Las Vegas Tips: How to Become a High Roller?

By Michael Kaplan

It’s 1:00 a.m., Las Vegas time, and you’ve been hammering at the casino all day and all night. Blackjacks drop as if you have control over the cards. Instantly seven-ing out at the craps table is something that happens to other people. You’re not controlling the dice but you may as well be. And when you pump $20 worth of bets onto the roulette table, just for the heck of it, magically, you triple your investment. This has been a charmed stretch of gambling. Pockets bulge with black and purple chips. It seems as if things can’t get any better. Then you are rewarded with an upgrade from room to suite, a couple of free tickets to the next Floyd Mayweather fight, comped dinner at the steak-house, and, if you go at it hard enough, reimbursement on your airfare.

Advanced Card Counting: Blackjack Strategy Deviations

By Nicholas Colon

In Blackjack, Basic Strategy is the series of decisions that a player adheres to so that they can incur the minimal loss of funds over time.  It tells the player when the appropriate time to stand, hit, double down, split and if applicable when to surrender (this where the player surrenders half of their initial bet to the casino).  These actions are determined by computer simulation, and decision points become firm at around 400 million hands.  However; in certain situations it becomes necessary to deviate from this strategy to gain maximum profitability over the casino.

How to Play a Soft 17 in Blackjack?

How to Play a Soft 17 in Blackjack?

By Henry Tamburin PH.D.

One of the hands that often confound blackjack players is when they are dealt a soft 17. Should I stand or hit? What about doubling down? What follows are the facts on how to play this hand accurately every time you play blackjack.

First, let me review some basics. A soft hand is any hand that contains an ace that is counted as 11. For example, an ace-6 is a soft 17; so is ace-3-3 and 2-2-ace-2. The basic playing strategy for, say, an ace-6 is much different than it is for a 10-7 (known as a hard 17 because It doesn’t contain an ace counted as 11). Yes, both hands total 17, but you play a soft 17 differently because you can never bust with a one-card draw (not so with a hard 17).

7 Silly Mistakes Made While Playing Craps

7 Silly Mistakes Made While Playing Craps

By Frank Scoblete

 

Just because people play certain games, perhaps playing them aplenty, does not mean they necessarily understand those games. Even some dealers are not conversant with the true odds and underlying math of the very games they deal. They certainly know how to run the game and they certainly know the payoffs of the various bets but that doesn’t mean they are actually experts.
 
I was once at a craps table where a dealer was telling a new player (a new player!) that placing the box numbers of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10 was the way to play. She said to avoid the Come bets and the Odds bet. (A new player!) That was awful advice but the dealer was convinced she was correct and the one poor guy who questioned her was slapped down with “I deal this game five days a week. I know what I am talking about!”
 
So ladies and gentlemen here are eight really silly mistakes that many craps players make when playing the game they love.
