Blackjack SchoolCard 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.
