The six deck with surrender setting believes basic strategy is surrendering to ANY ace no matter what you hand is. Could this be fixed in the next update.

I am certain now that this trainer is unworthy. Instead of using real math to promote the strategy, there is most likely a module in the code, that brute forces certain decisions (for the coach.) In other words… the prog tells you to hit on 16, because somebody told the developer that people should hit on 16. Totally bogus… I’m out

You can lead a horse to water….. Hit on sixteen if you want to. As they say in actual casinos “there aren’t any seatbelts on the chairs”. Play the way you want. It’s a GAME.

Perhaps you should spend time learning basic strategy instead of spending all of this time complaining about something you do not understand and bashing the work of others.

Hard 16 should surrender against 9-A, but assuming that is not an option.

Hard 16 should stand against 2-6 or hit against 7-A. As was previously mentioned, the odds are against you winning if you stand or hit, it is a defensive move.

If you are outnumbered in a gunfight and only have 1 bullet left are you going to fire it or go down with one bullet left? Fire the bullet and take the hit, you at least have a chance of taking someone down that way.

The house typically maintains an edge of @ 2 percent +/- over the player. While that does not ‘seem’ like much…consider the following… If you were to shoot a rocket at the moon from the Vegas strip, and your launch trajectory calculations are off by 2 degrees , then your intended intersection between the rocket and the moon will be thousands of miles off. That’s how Blackjack works. The house profits in the ‘long’ game with their 2 percent edge.

Basic strategy is supposed to minimize the damage to the player… But under no circumstances, will a player come out ahead in the long term.
The math (millions of hands and combinations , under numerous permutations of fixed set of house rules…) has proved this to be the case… In essence, using basic strategy alone, you will NEVER win more than you lose in the long game (And you can stand to lose a lot)

The online trainers are also not necessarily reliable (in terms of real world ‘random’ theory.) . There is no program out there, which can accurately and thoroughly represent a complete real world scenario. How can any program capture infinite possibilities unless it runs infinitely? Such programs CAN carve out a very short ‘slice’ of real world scenario, but how can they represent a streak , reliably , for very long?

AI Programming is one of the most overrated, over hyped features of the modern world of technology. Think gradients of postulates and conditions. Begin with a stop light that offers three possible choices, while you sit there in your car waiting for the light to turn green. To what end must the program keep learning about that mundane postulate. And whoever said you cant wait for a red light? See where this is going? AI will not improve your game one Iota… Playing the game for years in a real world situation will improve your game. Period. To that end, AI and similar programs can help accelerate you exposure to a multitude of hands, more rapidly than you might otherwise be exposed to in a normal real life situation. But at the end, your game skill is ON YOU.

Advantage players: Go forth with no hesitation. Don’t let the Casino owners bore you with discussions on ethics.

If you’re playing blackjack anywhere that has a house edge of +2%, you need to find a different casino. If you are playing anywhere that has a house edge of -2% you have died and gone to heaven. Do you know how to read percentage tables?

Either This trainer has flaws… (or the Basic strategy has flaws) And this is why you should never trust online algorithms.
1) Basic states that you actually have better odds in the long run… whenever you hit on 16 or under if the dealers up card is 10 or face.
2) Been playing this trainer for a few months and I can say, unabashedly that its not working out like that. If anything, its been the opposite You stand to lose most of those hands when you hit like that… And you actually have better leverage if you hold, instead…
3) There are more opportunities to double down , where it pays off in this trainer….but not normally so in basic strategy.
4) Black jack is a sucker’s game.. and the house knows it.

16 is a losing hand when hitting into a 7 or higher. The reason that you hit it is that you will lose LESS in the long run. I’ve been playing casino blackjack for more than 40 years. Some plays such as this one are defensive in nature.

I tried to play online with real money. At one site they weren’t using 6 decks. At the nextnsite they used 6 decks, but shuffled after every hand. I both cases, I lost my a**.

Do you know of an online casino that plays the same as your trainer?

Thanks in advance.

You won’t find one. If you live in or near central Wisconsin, there is a casino in the middle of nowhere that offers 2 deck and 5 deck games. They put the shuffle marker at 2/3. You can double on anything, double after a split and split up to four times. Blackjack pays 3 to 2 and you have the option of even money. If you play basic strategy as per the tables on blackjackinfo.com, the odds are a tad bit better with the even money option. In the 5 deck game you can split Aces up to four times. The best part is is that it’s only 45 minutes from my house. If I travel another 45 minutes there is a single deck game. The opportunities in single deck are more restrictive, but it’s a great game.

By using the Blackjack Trainer daily, I progressed from a $5.00 a hand player to a high stakes player. I have won as much as $35,000 and on my monthly visits leave ahead in winings. I have been able to learn all the basic strategies mentally and apply them when mplaying.

Thank you so much for having this site and maintaining it. Some of the rounds are really tough and that’s really good. From that I’ve learned money management, watching for clusters and my basic strategy is 100%. I’ve learned that this can be a grind but it gave me the confidence to hit a few casinos in my area…
I know my seat position, time of day, tells and sometimes I’ll play two hands to move the rotation if someone else is getting all the cards. I don’t know if moving the rotation works but I have gotten a few Black Jack’s ..lol
I’m definitely up at the casinos and will see if the love keeps me going back…On a side note not all casinos are created equal, one place 90 mins north of Toronto pulls out preshuffed decks… very, very sketchy. Others have the shuffling machine just below the table surface and transfer the cards manually into a shoe. I asked if they could wash the cards and hand shuffle but they wouldn’t do it. Saying it was a time thing and against their policy. So I told them my policy was to play somewhere else and I do. If a casino is literally not above board, cards not in sight 100% of the time… avoid!

Thanks again for all the information.. for me this is place really helps.

You have learned a lot in casino play. Another thing to watch for is when a card gets stuck in the automatic shuffler. They will fish out the offending card, but there may be more than one that caused the jam. I’ve seen it happen. If it does, you may want to ask for a card count (it takes less than a minute) or move to another table or casino. Been there, seen it, done it.

I just played for over an hour, and not once, not ONCE, did I ever bet more than 10 dollars, the min bet of the nearby casino, because every…. single….. shoe….. the count got negative, and then VERY negative, and despite high cards being dealt out disproportionately often throughout every shoe but especially at the beginning, it would always be the dealer and not me that would get 2 of them, the dealer just won and won and won. I quit with 325 dollars left of the 1000, lost 10 dollars at a time with no big bets, having won 156 hands and having lost 235.

…… say, is there a version of this game that DOESN’T stack the deck and actually generates the cards RANDOMLY? That would be more useful than THIS version which puts all the high cards at the beginning of the shoe and stacks it to insure the dealer gets 2 face cards 25% of the time and blackjack another 10% of the time…… As a simulation, this is completely useless if you’re not going to generate the numbers randomly. What is so DIFFICULT about doing it that way, it seems to me that you had to go out of your way to program it to stack the deck instead of just having it be random. Were you just trying to show users “worst case scenario” conditions?

That sounds like real life. How much protection do you really think you have playing $10 hands with $1000 bankroll? You’re more likely to bankrupt than survive the swings.

Joe is right. It’s not how much you win at a session. It’s how many sessions you win. If you’re spending time counting at a $10 game, you’re thinking too hard. Counting will give you an indication as to how the cards come out of the deck. Unfortunately nobody ever knows what the next card will be. Perfect your basic strategy, set a loss fail safe and a winning goal and stick to them. You’ll enjoy the game more and win more over time.

Some usability suggestions:

1). On the Options selection page, the chosen option for text fields is light and unselected options are dark. But that’s reversed for the Quick Play/Normal Play buttons: the selected option is dark, and non-selected is light. That’s confusing. It’d be better if the indicator for selected values was consistently light or dark, not mixed.

2). It’d be helpful if you stored the user’s Option selections in a browser cookie, and automatically set them similarly the next time the user returns to the site, rather than forcing them to re-enter their options every time they visit.

3). It’d also be helpful to have single-letter keyboard shortcuts for common actions. Perhaps not Quit or alter bet, but at least for Deal, Hit, Stand, Double, Split, and Surrender. Having to drag the mouse pointer back and forth between buttons really slows gameplay down.

Hope that’s helpful. I’ve used this for years for practice, and really appreciate that you’ve kept it up. Thanks!

It works very very well! You just need to have proper bankroll management and good counting skills. Here is proof of my best record yet!

Anyways I can’t load my picture however I grind up a bankroll of $35502!

Before any serious play, your play should be 100% — it’s not that difficult. If you are still making strategy errors, it’s too soon to play in a casino.
