Default You can make more money playing Blackjack than Poker.

Blackjack is the biggest player advantage game in the casino. Both you and the dealer play by the same "rules," the only difference is, you get to decide when to hit/stand/double down/split, and the Dealer MUST hit 16 or below and stand 17 or above. Can't you see how big an advantage this is for you? It makes you easily a 60 percent favorite if you play correctly. So all you morans whining about bad beats in poker should try blackjack.

Now of course one problem is that you can't really multitable blackjack like you can poker, each site lets you play usually only 3 hands at once, but if you run multiple sites, this is no problem. Add that to the fact that you never have to worry about things like "table selection," and whether or not there are enough players, and blackjack is a sure winner.

Great, now the PBJ tables will get even tighter with all the 2+2 sharks swarming in. I've been making a living off of blackjack for 10 years now, and Party is a blessing. The dealers are usually dumb too, giving me another couple % edge.

Yeah and think about it, when you get Black Jack you get paid 3 to 2. But when the dealer gets Black Jack he only gets paid 1 to 1! If this ain't +EV I dunno what is.

Very good point. Me and Kevin Blackwood are writing another blackjack book, and I will make sure to include this one alongside the Level II and III Balanced Card Counting Strategies, two of which (both designed by me) now work on Party BJ tables. Price for the book will be somewhat relatively high and payment will only be acceptable through non-tracable transfer into one of my offshore accounts, but thats only because we figure that anyone who masters the system will win that money back tenfold within 10 minutes of a decent-staked game.

and one more thing.. if you lose more than 5 times in a row your EV will be so large that you can outplay the dealer with some maximum bets.

BJ is sooo easy
