Common Rookie Blackjack Mistakes To Learn From  
Blackjack is a game that is very easy to understand, but hard to master. Take a look at a few commonly made mistakes that you should avoid entirely.

Big Blackjack Rookie Mistakes To Avoid

Who doesn’t love Blackjack? It is a super-fast paced game that virtually everyone can play immediately, and also happens to be an intense, nail biting experience. But Blackjack is also a very deceiving game. The rules, although extremely simple to understand, don’t necessarily convey how best to play, in order to win.

Yes, you can throw yourself in, take crazy risks, and hoot in celebration when you hit a Blackjack. On the other hand, you could take it slow, think about the situation, and play according to some intelligent ground rules. There is, of course, nothing wrong with just going crazy and hoping for the best, but the smart players know that there are some rookie mistakes to avoid.

Take a look.

I’m Nearly There!

What is the idea of Blackjack? Getting as close to 21 as possible, right? Wrong!

The goal of Blackjack is, in fact, getting closer to 21 than the dealer. Many rookies jump into the game assuming that they have to risk it all, over and over, in an effort to kiss 21 on the cheek. But that isn’t at all the case. If you like the idea of this constant risk taking, you might perhaps click here and check out some sports betting instead.

If you stand on 15, and the dealer goes bust, you still win. If you stand on 12, and the dealer busts, you still win. The real trick of Blackjack is knowing when to stand, and when to hit, in order to beat the dealer.

Pay Attention

When you play Blackjack, you keep your eyes fixed on your own cards, and nowhere else, right? Wrong!

Your eyes should instead be on the dealer’s face up card. The reason that Blackjack allows you to see one of the dealer’s cards is to give you some sort of an idea of how his or her hand is going to play out. Why else would they allow you this sneak peak?

The best Blackjack players in the world can make a pretty good prediction of what the dealer’s hand will be based on that single, visible card. You should do the same, if you want to be a pro player.

It’s All Just Luck

Blackjack is all just about luck, obviously, you throw caution to the wind, and take what you get. Right? Wrong!

Blackjack is one of very few casino games that can be played, and won, consistently. Over time, the best players in the world will always come out on top. This means that Blackjack is the exact opposite of a luck based game. It is a skill based game. Yes, there is a certain amount of luck involved, but all in all the better you are at strategy, the more you will win.

Researching Blackjack strategies is a big part of getting better. So, if you are serious about being a pro player and don’t want to throw away money, you should dedicate a fair amount of time to reading up, learning, and understanding. Reading a book may not be as fun as just throwing caution to the wind, but it certainly pays better.
