Follow the Blackjack Basic Strategy (there are also other advanced strategies that include counting cards) perfectly and overtime the house advantage is less than 1% (0.49%). So even if you can't count cards your chances are pretty good of making some money. In addition, even at less than 1 percent you have the option to leave at anytime and therefore most of the time you can usually walk away when your ahead.

Just today, I saw a guy stack $80 dollars on a spot and practically give the money to the casino. He was dealt a 10 and 4 for a total of 14, against a the dealers 6. He took a hit and busted. When playing a 14 against a dealers 6 Blackjack "Basic Strategy" calls for the player to stand because the probability of the dealer busting by drawing a 6, 7, 8, 9, J, K, Q is more than you drawing a card that gives you a wining hand of 17, 18, 19, 20, or 21 (of course this still depends on what the dealer draws).

Blackjack is all statistics in each situation there is a less likely chance that you will loose by hitting or standing. All the calculations have been done for you, all you have to do is follow the rules like a robot.

I have read on various websites that some casinos sell similar cards with incorrect information. For example hitting a soft 17 vs a dealer 6, rather than correctly doubling down.

The advice offered with this, and other similar products, is useful for basic play. Certainly it is better than just playing as if Blackjack were a game of chance. It is not; it's a game of odds.
In addition to undersanding the odds it is important to realize the advantage the casino has and the advantages you have as a player.
The casino draws last. Therefore, if you have already busted they win. The casino also get an advantage with a tie.
You, the Player, have the following advantages:
1. You can decide how much to bet. (A money management system can help you.)
2. You can/should double down in some situations. (eg. you have a total of ten and the dealer has a six up.)
3. You can split your cards in other situations (i.e. with a pair. It is often a good idea to split 8's.)
Finally, and perhaps of most importance,
4. You can decide when to quit. (Hint: it's a good idea to quit when up.)

This card (it's about the size of standard playing card and fits nicely in your wallet and is made of a durable plastic) is a must have if you visit the casino on a regular basis and like winning more hands of blackjack then the house does...it has what to do based on the dealer's up card and hand you have in front of you...it tells you when to hit, split, double down, stand and surrender...one thing though you have to consistently use this strategy every time you play and on every hand or else the odds will be skewed...

this card is just like the casino "helper" card you can by in LasVages---after using it for a while you will begin to remember the helpful suggestions and not have to rely on the card as often--helps you be a better "player" with other players at the table.

Good to start with, but if you plan on playing blackjack seriously this is literally only a very very basic reference guide to basic strategy, and it's only for 4 6 and 8 deck games. Go ahead and buy it as a bookmark for a blackjack book if you're just starting out.

I already knew blackjack rules, but I got this for my nieces and nephews to learn when and when not to hit. I even learned that when the dealer is showing a 10 and I have a soft 18, that I should hit. Crazy, but it has worked in the casino for me more than not.

The chart has been proven to be statistically accurate, but note: this card is smaller than a standard-size playing card. It is tiny! I feel that this important decision-making information - while probably in the description 'somewhere' - was not very evident for a buyer.

My fault, I should have carefully read all the fine print. I thought this would be large enough to read, and a little sturdy. It is the size of a credit card, with tiny print and is thin. This is probably what most people would want, so this may be exactly what you are looking for. I wanted it to look at while learning to play Blackjack at home, so I didn't need to conceal it or have it fit in a wallet or purse. If you want a handy "chart" that is slim and fits in a pocket or wallet, this may be for you.
