Playing Chemin de fer — to Win


If you love the fulfillment and excitement of a great card game and the anticipation of winning and making some money with the odds in your favor, gambling on 21 is for you.

So, how can you defeat the house?

Basically when wagering on 21 you are tracking the odds and chances of the cards in relation to:

1. What your hand is

2. What cards possibly could come from the shoe

When gambling on 21 there is statistically a better way to play every hand and this is known as basic strategy. If you add card counting that helps you compute the odds of cards being dealt from the deck, then you are able to increase your bet amount when the odds are in your favor and lower them when they are not.

You are only going to succeed at under half the hands you bet on, so it is important that you adjust wager size when the odds are in your favor.

To do this when betting on vingt-et-un you have to use basic strategy and card counting to succeed.

Vingt-et-un Basic Strategy

Using it when you wager on chemin de fer will bring down the casino’s edge to near to zero.

Counting cards getting the edge in your favour

Card counting works and gamblers use a card counting scheme gain an edge over the gambling hall.

The reasoning behind this is simple.

Low cards favour the casino in twenty-one and high cards favor the player.

Low cards favor the croupier because they help them acquire winning totals on her hands when she is stiff (has a twelve, 13, fourteen, fifteen, or 16 total on his first two cards).

In casino 21, you can stay on your stiffs if you want to, but the casino cannot.

The house has no choice to make, but you do and this is your edge. The rules of wagering on vingt-et-un require that croupiers hit stiffs no matter how rich the deck is in high cards that will break him.

The high cards favour the player because they might bust the house when she hits her stiffs and also because both tens and Aces mean blackjacks.

Despite the fact blackjacks are, evenly dispensed between the house and the player, the fact is that the player gets paid more (3:2) when he receives a blackjack so the player has an advantage.

You do not have to tally the data of each of the individual card to know when you have an edge over the house.

You just need to know at what point the shoe is rich or depleted in high cards and you can jump your action when the odds are in your favour.

This is a basic explanation of how card-counting plans work, but gives you an understanding into why the rationale works.

When playing vingt-et-un over an extended term card counting will help in tilting the edge in your favour by to around two percent.
