Black Jack and Card Counting

Black Jack and Card Counting

The game of black jack is certainly one of the most practiced, played and loved card games not only in real casinos but also and above all on online casinos , comfortably seated at home in front of the monitor, thousands and thousands of players have fun every day with this simple but unpredictable card game, and obviously many try to create or simply look for a safe and effective strategy that makes them easily win online games… and not; all this reminds a little of the ancient alchemists in search of the philosopher’s stone, not that winning at black jack is so difficult however, as in any card game, there may be a trick to follow but the component of luck and skill is there and always remains very high.

In blackjack we hear very often about mathematically proven tricks, it is certainly not up to us to say if all these tricks are true or not, and it is certainly not up to us to establish if mathematical tests have been carried out. Certainly many have tried and try to force the system but it is certain that mathematics is an exact science and the game of cards inevitably remains closely linked to chance, because the cards are always the same and you can do all the accounts that we want them but it is still highly probable that the card we want will not come out.

Now black jack , even online, has a rather common trick which is to count, yes, count the cards that come out of the deck one by one, this gives us a certain ability to predict what type of card can come out based on the number of cards that have already been turned and obviously gives us an ability, albeit limited, to predict what kind of card will come out and allows us to choose whether to call a new card or whether to stay with those who are at the table. Some, and here we return to mathematics, argue that the Basic Strategy derived from the counting system is infallible, without considering all this however it can already be said that a valid blackjack trick is to count the cards that come out, the rest , of course, luck does.

The Fibonacci sequence applied to roulette

The Fibonacci sequence applied to roulette

One of the most commonly used roulette systems is Fibonacci, which is based on the sequence of numbers starting from 1-1-2-3-5-8 and so on. This succession is one of the best known in mathematics and dates back to the thirteenth century and has been the protagonist in many fields, such as architecture, music and biology.

In reality it is a very simple sequence to calculate: it is sufficient to add the two previous numbers, starting from 1-1.

In the game of roulette, this particular sequence allows you to integrate a betting system that is certainly cheaper than the Martingale system, even if it is less rapid than the latter.

The reason for the slowness of the Fibonacci sequence applied to roulette lies essentially in the growth, far from rapid, of the bet amount, even if it requires a higher number of rounds to finish the sequence, on average.

In case you lose, using the fibonacciano system, you have to increase the amount bet in the next round, in the same way as in the Martingale system. On the contrary, however, instead of doubling, it is necessary to follow the Fibonacci sequence.

If, on the other hand, you win with this system, you must not stop the sequence like what happens in the Martingale system: in this situation you have to remove the two previous numbers in the sequence and bet with the new derived number.

There are many tricks in the game of roulette : for example, the game of equal mass is one of the most interesting and innovative.

This trick is implemented by placing bets of the same amount each time and brings with it only one advantage: it is impossible to lose everything with this system.

There are three cases around which this tactic revolves: the game takes place according to our intentions and then we will be able to take the money home, even though we are not talking about big winnings, or the game could take place in a totally opposite way to our predictions and disadvantageous blows will prevail and, in this situation, we should say goodbye to our hopes of victory, even if we will not suffer great losses; finally, the third possibility is given by a linear game development, which follows the path of equilibrium and, in this situation, we would only lose the tax linked to zero.

The experts who support this game theory express the following opinion: it is possible to win with a good frequency, only by selecting the shots: our task, that is, must be to intervene only when, based on different circumstances, we are convinced that the coup can be successful.

For example, if five consecutive even numbers come up, it is better to risk a large sum on the odd number.

The disadvantage or, if you prefer, the problem, is knowing with certainty which is the most suitable time: so this tactic is good for those who play infrequently and could also lead to some winnings, even if not large.…
