The basic strategy in blackjack that many people simply don’t do is to go after the flop and see if the other player is vulnerable. The problem with this strategy is that often times people are behind when they should be ahead. This strategy isn’t effective, but it can be modified to be more effective.
Let’s face it, nobody wants to lose a hand. I am sure you understand why. What many people don’t realize is that the best way to lose a hand is to turn your back on it. This strategy is very powerful, especially when playing against weaker players, as you get the advantage of the pot.
Often times people will start looking for their next hand before their hand has even closed. These players will often times over bet in order to get a strong hand. This puts them in position to make the weak hand win by bluffing. Not only does this strategy put the weaker player in a poor position, but it also leaves them with a hand that is almost guaranteed to lose. The strategy in blackjack is to do whatever it takes to make the other player fold their hand.
So how do you change this strategy? Well, firstly, I would suggest you keep betting on the flop if you are behind. I recommend leaving your hand and calling the bet when you are ahead.
Now if you are winning, then you might want to make the weak hand to win by over bet. Of course, there are times when you can bluff your way through the betting rounds. Don’t allow yourself to become lazy, keep on playing and get into that poker mentality. I love that mentality.
Also keep in mind that some people will be happy to fold to you. When you pick up a strong hand and fold it is because you have convinced them that it is going to be a weak hand. That is very powerful and it can be done.
Keep in mind that sometimes they will fold to you because they don’t play a lot of hands, or because their weak hand won’t draw off a strong hand. You will need to take note of these things and use them against them when they come up with a strong hand.
There is more to the game of blackjack than just knowing the basic strategy in blackjack. I believe that anyone can learn the basics of this game. I have taught hundreds of people to play this game and it has all been successful.
