We offer two different sets of the highest quality blackjack strategy cards. Our Blackjack Basic Strategy Cards provide perfectly optimized basic strategies for all the common rule variations, while our Blackjack Advanced Strategy Cards add optimal Hi-Lo card counting index numbers as well.

This set of six wallet-size cards shows the optimal basic strategy for each of these games:

- 1 Deck, Dealer Stands on all 17s
- 1 Deck, Dealer Hits Soft 17
- 2 Decks, Dealer Stands on all 17s
- 2 Decks, Dealer Hits Soft 17
- 4/6/8 Decks, Dealer Stands on all 17s
- 4/6/8 Decks, Dealer Hits Soft 17

Each card features perfect basic strategy from BlackjackInfo.com, and is made of solid durable plastic. The cards are credit-card sized to fit easily in your wallet.

This set of twelve pocket-size cards includes the same perfect basic strategies as the basic set, but then adds the Hi-Lo card counting system index numbers from -5 to +5.

For each game, the set includes two different plastic cards. One card shows the Hi-Lo index numbers printed as small numbers in the corner of the decision square. A second “stealth” version of each card encodes the index numbers using a series of small black dots.

Each card is pocket-sized and made of solid durable plastic.

do you have cards for spanish 21, if not do you know where?

No, but you can at least find the strategy here: https://wizardofodds.com/games/spanish-21/

I have read in another book on blackjack counting about counting the low cards then divide by the number of players have knot tried this way as of yet. I am doing real good just using your blackjack strategy. how about the low card system above. any one has it been try-out

Wait a min…is the advanced strategy card(s) what I think is is??? Is this the basic deviations based on true count on a card? Already bought three of the basic cards some time ago…I didn’t know what deviations were at the time…I do now…lol.

Yes, the advanced cards include the normal basic strategy, plus all of the Hi-Lo index numbers between -5 and +5. ðŸ™‚

One of the local casinos has a couple of tables with oddball rules, such as one where the house will pay for a double or split under certain conditions. Any easy way to calculate odds for such oddities?

That sounds like Free Bet Blackjack. See this site for more details on it:

More generally, most of these unusual variants are very difficult to analyze using existing tools. You really need to be able to write your own software to do it.

Yeah, that’s the one, though the nuances are slightly different. They also have Triple-Up.

I may have to hit up my younger sibling to bodge something together. XD

Thank you Mr. Smith. Now I know why I am still losing!! Ha Ha !

Hi Ken

My casino here has the rules for blackjack: 6 decks, CSM, D any 2 cards, DAS, soft 17 ,early surrender, no peak,but no surrender if banker has A . Your basic strategy engine says the banker has the edge of -.08%. That mean that the player has .08% against the banker?

Thanks.

If you had full early surrender, including against an Ace, that would be correct. The player would have a small advantage.

However, since you cannot surrender against an Ace, that adds back about 0.4% to the house edge, so the effective total is a house advantage of approximately 0.32%.

The advanced strategy chart I am using for double deck assumes surrender is an option but it is not in all the games I play. So, for 15 against a 10 where it says to surrender against a 10 or stand if TC is at least 4, I assume all I do is replace surrender with hit in this case and I am good, is that right? In other words just treat the surrenders as if they said hit but I still stand if the TC is at least as high as index.

Correct. When you cannot surrender just hit, unless the true count is at or higher than the hit/stand index number.

Perhaps you are being confused by the negative index number?

As you mention in your final paragraph, for a 2-deck H17 game the index for 12v2 is +3. The index for 13v2 is -1.

If the true count is +3 or higher, you should stand with 12v2.

If the true count is -1 or higher, you should stand with 13v2.

In your example, you ask about what happens at a true count of 4.

Since +4 is higher than both of the indexes (+3 and -1), you would stand with both 12v2 and 13v2. There is no inconsistency.

Sorry, I confused myself. Let me restate my reply.

First of all, is it always the case that with an index of 0 or negative that you play basic strategy move only if the count is higher than the index, otherwise play the alternative?

Is it also the general rule that it works the opposite when the index is positive? In other words, you only play the basic strategy move if the count is equal or lower to the index? By general rule here do we also mean “always?”

Thanks!

Since I play double deck where dealer hits soft 17, can double after split (except Aces), can double any two cards and no surrender, what would be the easiest next best counting system to learn once I have mastered hi-lo (the easy one you teach) and what would be the best one if I advance that far? Also, should I count Aces as minus 1 or should they be neutral?

Thanks!

Bet sizing is far more important than strategy changes. I would recommend that you not worry about indexes at all yet. When I started, I played a year or two without any strategy variations at all. The huge majority of your profit comes from bet variation. Once bet variation is solid, you can expect strategy changes to add maybe 20% to your win rate. You’ll know you are ready when counting and just varying your bet starts to get boring. ðŸ™‚

Do you have any information on how to beat California Blackjack? Such as when to bank the game?

Many years ago I was hired by one of the banking teams to calculate the optimal strategy and return for California Blackjack.

However I don’t even know if I still have the report, and more importantly, I bet the game’s rules are no longer exactly the same.

Have used at the table many times and have been told by pit bosses that it is perfectly legal. No problem.
