Blackjack Basic Strategy
The term "Blackjack Basic Strategy" has come to be a
common term that is used to describe the best possible play at blackjack
without card counting. Card counting of course adds a new
dimension. Basic Strategy is often shown as a table, that users
can use to learn best play. For learning, one would absolutely
refer to the tables while learning as the cards are freshly dealt.
The user should look at their own two cards and then scan the left side
of the table to see if they have a special play - such as a pair
combination or an ace - or simply need to count the points to determine
their hand. And then the player would look at the "dealer's up
card" and then look at the correct column for that up card going across
the top of the table. Where that column intersects (dealer card)
with the right row for the players cards - will be shown the best play
for that hand.

Blackjack odds, with a little bit of player knowledge,
are actually not bad odds for the player. Of course the casino
knows this also. So casinos have come out with new ways to make
more money at Blackjack. They have new variations that are
sometimes called: Spanish 21, 6:5 Single Deck Blackjack, Double
Diamond and Super Fun 21 among others. Yes, of course you should
be suspicious. New games such as these seldom have the same good
odds as the original games. But if you enjoy some of these new
variations, such as the many rules allowed in Spanish 21, you are far
better off playing that game using Spanish 21 strategy versus regular
blackjack strategy. The casinos hope that you will not use the
right strategy for the game variations, particularly Spanish 21, and if
you do not change your strategy, the casinos win more than they need to.

One easy way to practice the game in a simple atmosphere
and to also modify the games options as you wish is with the blackjack
game available here from rpsoft 2000 software. The game has many
features that can help one learn to at least defend themselves a little
in a regular blackjack game or one of the variations. The game

Basic Strategy Hint Charts
And as one plays the game, simple hint charts are
provided by pressing the "f2" key during a game, or the more complete
hint chart for that game by pressing "f3". Several hint charts are
provided - showing the differences in play between single deck
blackjack, multiple deck blackjack, Spanish 21 and more. And as
you become familiar with the hint charts and best play, you will likely
need the charts less and less. Then, perhaps you are ready for the
real thing. However, always keep in mind that even if you are
great at Basic Strategy and have close to even up odds with the house,
that luck can bring large swings either for or against you for short
periods of play. That is perhaps why we call it gambling.
However, why not practice and learn basic strategy to get those odds as
good as you can? Or if you wish to not take any risks at all,
simply enjoy the rpsoft 2000 blackjack game. Even though we
ourselves have played in many casinos in the US and internationally, we
still enjoy the software game also.

real game - all to provide a safe and fun atmosphere for learning the
