Card counting is a math-based strategy of playing blackjack, involving the calculation of the ration between high and low cards in the deck. The more high cards (worth of ten and eleven) there are in the deck, the higher are the chances of blackjack for the player. Increasing the bet constantly when you have a good ration of high cards in the deck represents a good long-terms strategy for playing blackjack.

Card counting doesn’t require a math genius to use it. Although, it does require the ability to stay focused in unfavorable stressful conditions of the casino. You should master the card counting technique before actually playing a real black jack game. Also, you’ll have to keep in mind that most online betting singapore restrict card counters from playing blackjack, so you better learn how to count the cards without making it obvious to the dealer by the look on your face. This is real art and involves some acting skill, if you will. Professional card counters consider this part of the technique the most challenging.

To get the idea of card counting, here’s a simple system that will help you in calculating your cards during the game. This system is called the Wizard’s ace five count. You start the count at 0, with every ace counting as a -1 and every five as a +1. When the count is 0 or negative you have to bet one unit. When it’s positive, the bet will be two units times the amount of the count: two units at +1, four units at +2. six units at +3 and so on.
