Card counting is an advantage play technique. It is a method of keeping track of the cards by assigning a value to certain cards in the deck. The theory behind card-counting is based on the fact that when a deck or shoe is deficient in small cards the player is at a greater than normal advantage and when the deck or shoe is deficient in high cards the player is at a less than normal advantage. Is there such a thing as “the best card counting system“? Although card counting is a technique that can increase your odds of winning at blackjack, it can’t be applied at online blackjack sites where cards are shuffled every time and there is no deck penetration.
We support all other sites that provide sound and mathematically justified ideas about the game of blackjack and advantage play. In other words, we try not to compete with other blackjack sites. If there is better information available elsewhere you will usually see a link to it here along with a glowing endorsement. We are not owned or controlled by any casino operation and are devoted to providing honest and accurate information that players can use to beat (i.e., gain a theoretical advantage in) today’s tough casino games. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome.
