Learning Basic Strategy the Right Way

It is impossible for a floor person to watch and to protect the game of blackjack when they do not know perfect basic strategy.  Too many casino managers and supervisors associate basic strategy with card counting, “however”, basic strategy is the tip off to the rip off when a dealer and player are working in collusion.  When a supervisor notices a player who normally plays good basic strategy doubling down on a breaking hand, an alarm should go off telling them, “Something is wrong”.  The casino manager should insist that all pit managers or supervisors be able to recite the answer to all basic strategy problems, “in under 30 seconds”.  This video trains your pit personnel to do just that.


·      Close observation and understanding of perfect basic strategy by a skilled supervisor will let them know immediately on if a player sitting at one of their blackjack tables is a skilled or an unskilled player. Basic Strategy is the tip off to a possible rip off.
