Let me say loud and clear that card counting is hard and is not as rewarding as television and the movies make it out to be. If it were an easy way to make money, then everyone would be doing it.
If you do not know the basic strategy, trying to count cards is highly ill-advised. Experienced card counters still play by the basic strategy the great majority of the time.There can be no short cut around learning the basic strategy, those who attempt card counting without a firm foundation in the basic strategy are making a big mistake.
To be a successful counter you have to be able to countdown a deck fast and memorize large tables of numbers as well as make it look like you’re just a casual player.Furthermore, with today’s rules, a realistic advantage the counter will have is only 0.5% to 1.5%. You will not win money slowly and gradually but your bankroll will go up and down like a roller coaster in the short run. Only in the long run, over hundreds of hours of playing, can you count on winning.
The underlying principle behind card counting is that a deck rich in tens and aces is good for the player, a deck rich in small cards is good for the dealer. When the counter knows the odds are in his favor, he will bet more, and adjust his playing strategy to stand, double, and split in some plays where basic strategy says to stand. All the options the player has at his disposal favor the player even more when the deck is ten and ace rich. Here is a list and a brief reason why.
Standing : The player may stand on stiff totals of 12 to 16, and the dealer may not. In ten-rich shoes, hitting stiff hands becomes more dangerous, favoring the more conservative player strategy.
Insurance : On average, when the dealer has an ace up, the remaining cards in blackjack will be 30.87% tens (based on a six-deck game), making insurance a bad bet. However, if the probability gets above 33.33%, it becomes a good bet. Counters know when the remaining cards are ten-rich, and make powerful insurance bets at those times.
Doubling : Usually, when the player doubles he wants a ten. In ten-rich shoes, the player makes better double downs, getting closer to 21.
Blackjack : Both player and dealer will see more blackjacks, but the player gets paid 3 to 2, and the dealer does not.
Surrender : The alternative to surrendering is much worse in ten-rich shoes. If the alternative is hitting, the player is more likely to bust. If the player would otherwise stand, due to the high count, the dealer is still more likely to get a 10. While the counter will surrender more in high counts, the savings will be greater.
Splits : The player is usually splitting high cards and/or off of a weak dealer card. Either way, a ten-rich shoe helps the player get higher totals, and increases the probability of the dealer busting.
I’m working on an in-depth study of how these effects break down. The contribution to each factor depends on the rules, deck penetration, and bet spread. However, based on average conditions in a six-deck shoe, my initial results break down the benefits of counting as follows.
The probability for insurance was taken from Don Schlesinger’s ‘Illustrious 18’ list, as found in Blackjack Attack . The rest of the breakdown is mine.
To gauge the richness of the deck in good cards, the player will keep track of the cards the are already played. Strategies vary, but all assign a point value to each card. For example, the hi-lo count assigns a value of +1 to 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, and -1 to tens and aces. Everything else is 0, or neutral. At the beginning of a deck or shoe, the count is 0. Then the counter constantly adds and subtracts from the count, according to the cards played. This running total is called the ‘running count.’ A positive count means that a disproportional number of small cards have already been played, which means that the deck is rich in large cards. To determine the ‘true count,’ divide the running count by the number of decks left to be played, or in some strategies, the number of half decks. This will tell you the relative richness of the deck in good cards.
The true count is used in two ways, to determine how much to bet and how to play your hand. Unless it is obvious, every situation has a line in which you should play one way if the count is above the line and another if below. For example, a 12 against a 6 may dictate that you stand if the true count is -1 or greater and hit if the true count is less than -1. The counter will also bet more when the true count is high, meaning the deck is rich in good cards.
A problem arises when it comes to treating aces. The player should bet more when the deck is rich in aces since they add to the probability of getting a blackjack. However, when it comes to playing your hand, the number of aces left is not nearly as important as the number of tens, so it is desirable, but not necessary, to distinguish between tens and aces. Some card counting strategies keep a side count of aces. In the Hi-Opt I and Revere Plus/Minus aces are counted separately and only considered when making the wager. This is a more accurate and powerful way to play than assigning a negative value to aces and not keeping a side count, as some strategies do. Yet, many people feel that for the beginner it is too confusing to keep two counts. A player is more likely to make mistakes keeping two counts and that costs money. The efficiency of a strategy that does not keep a side count of aces is only modestly less, but you likely will gain more from fewer mistakes made. Different experts fall in various places in the spectrum in terms of what to recommend for the beginner. The Zen Count takes the middle ground and gives aces a value of -1 and tens -2. Personally, I have tried both and would recommend against a count that requires a side count of aces to a person ready to take up card counting. The Uston Advanced Plus/Minus is a good strategy that does not involve an ace side count and can be found in the book Million Dollar Blackjack . How well you know a counting strategy is much more important than which strategy you know.
Legally speaking, the player may play blackjack any way he wants without cheating or using a computer, and the casinos may do anything from making conditions unfavorable to barring, in an effort to stop anyone who they deem has an advantage over the game. Much of the challenge of card counting is avoiding suspicion that you are anything but a normal non-counting player. The most obvious indication that somebody is counting is that they make a substantial increase in bet size after a lot of small cards leave the table. Although the greater the factor by which you can increase your bet the greater your odds of winning, more than doubling your last bet is a fast way to arouse ‘heat’from the dealer and pit boss. Usually when casinos employees realize you are counting, they will either shuffle the cards whenever you increase your bet, essentially removing any advantage, or ask you to leave.
This is only scraping the surface of the subject of card counting. I suggest the following pages of mine.

Pai Gow Poker – Wizard of Odds with strategy

logo

strategy begin The house advantage in Pai Gow Poker depends on partially on your skill setting hands but more on how much of the action you bank. I plan to publish some pai gow poker strategy in January, 2014.

Pai Gow Poker is a variation of the Chinese domino game pai gow . The game is known for a slow rate of play and lots of pushes, resulting in low risk game. While a game of skill, most hands are obvious how to play, and it is not difficult to learn proper strategy for the rest of them. Every player plays against the same dealer hand, which causes the table to often win and lose together, resulting in a fun and social game.
Pai Gow Poker was invented in 1985 by Sam Torosian, owner of the Bell card club in southern California. However, his is a name few people recognize. While other have made millions inventing casino games, Sam received some bad legal advice that card games were not patentable, and never filed one for his game. When his game was a success at his own casino there was nothing to prevent competing casinos from offering the game as well, and they didn’t have to pay Sam a dime.
Source: Casino Boss Can’t Cash In on Game He Developed — Los Angeles Times, Nov. 3, 2002.
I’m very proud to present my pai gow strategy page . It contains simple, intermediate, and advanced strategies for both playing as the banker, against the banker, and combined. This page took months for my assistant JB to create so I hope you’ll have a look.
For your convenience, I also have my one-page simple pai gow poker strategy (PDF).
The house advantage in Pai Gow Poker depends on partially on your skill setting hands but more on how much of the action you bank. I plan to publish some pai gow poker strategy in January, 2014. Until then, the following tables show the probability of each possible outcome and the expected value four ways — whether using the house way or optimal strategy and whether banking or the dealer is banking.
The following table summarizes the expected value under all four scenarios. The ‘difference’ row and column show that banking, compare to not banking, increases expected value by 2.47%. The difference between following the house way and the theoretical optimal strategy, which I’m quite sure nobody knows, is 0.21%.
Often in Washington State the casino will not charge the 5% commission on banker wins. They make a profit on the banker’s advantage and side bets only. With no commission, the banker has a 1.30% advantage, and all others playing against the banker a 1.30% disadvantage.
The house way is how the dealer arranges their own hand. It can vary from place to place the differences are marginal and happen infrequently. The house way is available for the following casinos:
The following table shows the probability of forming any specified poker hand. These probabilities consider all seven cards and without regard to how the player may play the hand.
Note : The number of combinations for a Royal Flush is 26,132; 21,620 wild and 4,512 natural.

17/7/5 Joker Poker 10-play Ultimate X Strategy

This page shows my strategy for the 10-hand version of 17/7/5 Ultimate X Joker Poker (Kings or Better) . With perfect play, which requires knowing more than one correct play for many hands based on the average multiplier, the expected return of this game is 99.04%. If you use the following single strategy at all times, the expected return is 99.015%. So you are giving up 0.025% in long-term return in exchange for a single, simple strategy.
Please note this strategy is not appropriate for the single-line Ultimate X game .
There are too many exceptions to list for this game, and they are collectively worth less than 0.03%, so I will only list one exception. The following type of hand is the only one in the entire game which has three correct plays:
Joker + 2T of one suit + Jack of a second suit + Queen of a third suit. For example, 2♦ 10♦ J♣ Q♥ .
The three correct plays for this hand are:

Jacks or Better optimal strategy

The following strategy is for full pay Jacks or Better video poker. ‘Full Pay’ designates the following paytable, per coin based on five coins bet, which returns 99.54% of money bet assuming optimal strategy.
To use this strategy, look up all reasonable ways to play a hand, and choose the play that is highest on the list. If a play isn’t on the list then it should never be played. The numbers on the right represent the average return. These numbers can vary depending on the discards.
Let’s try an example. Suppose you have both four to a flush and a low pair. Should you sacrifice the low pair to complete the flush or sacrifice the possible flush and keep the low pair? From the list below 4 to a flush has a higher ranking and thus is the better play. To test yourself on other hands try my video poker quiz .
I admit this is a long and rather difficult strategy but I believe it correctly advises every possible hand. If used correctly it should yield perfect play.
Straight Flush draw (type 1) : Straight flush draw in which the number of high cards equals or exceeds number of gaps.
Straight Flush draw (type 2) : One of the following straight flush draws.

Straight Flush draw (type 3) : Straight flush draw with two gaps and no high cards.
By request I have removed hands that are never played from the list. Either some subset of these hands are better than the larger hand, or discarding everything is better. In parenthesis I put what you should do with these hands.
High card : A jack, queen, king, or ace. These cards are retained more often because if paired up they return the original bet.
Outside straight : An open-ended straight that can be completed at either end, such as 6-7-8-9.
Inside straight : A straight with a missing inside card, such as 5-6-7-9. Note that A-2-3-4 and J-Q-K-A are considered inside straights because only one rank will complete them.
Penalty card : Sometimes one must discard a potentially useful card. In rare situations cards you would never keep can still tip the scales in favor of one play over another. For example, take the situation in footnote F. The player has a king of clubs, 10 of clubs, 9 of spades, 6 of clubs, and a 3 of diamonds. The best options are to either keep the suited 10 and king or the king only. The suited 10 and king is usually the better option. However in this scenario two potentially useful cards would be discarded, the 9 (lowering the odds of forming a straight), and the 6 of clubs (lowering the odds of forming a flush). These two penalty cards degrade the value of the suited 10 and king to below that of keeping the king only.
It should be mentioned that this strategy is mainly for academic interest or only the most avid video poker players. For practical purposes I recommend my simple strategy with a return of 99.46% or my intermediate strategy with a return of 99.52%.

4 to a flush beats 3 to a royal if royal includes a ten and ace, and the unsuited card is a 10 or straight penalty card. Knowing this exception will add 0.00000021 to the game return.
4 to an inside straight beats suited jack and queen with 9 or flush penalty card.
3 to a straight flush, spread 5, with 1 high card vs. 4 to an inside straight, with 3 high cards: Play the 3 to a straight flush if there is no straight penalty card. Knowing this exception will add 0.00000020 to the game return.
Suited 10 and jack vs. an unsuited jack and king: If there is no flush penalty card then keeping the 10 and jack then that is the better play, otherwise keep the jack and king.
Suited 10 and queen vs. an unsuited queen and ace: If there is no flush penalty card then keeping the 10 and queen is the better play, otherwise keep the queen and ace.
Suited 10, king vs. king only: Normally the suited ten and king is better than the king alone, however if you must discard a 9 and a flush penalty card then hold the king only.
