Blackjack is one of those games that while chance is a big part of it, there are many other factors as well. Winning at blackjack is that odd mixture of luck and skill, and, if you are not skillful, you may be lucky, and then you can still win. However, if you are unlucky, then no amount of skill will help you. However, one of the most famous blackjack strategies is the method of card counting. This method was made famous by the immortal Ken Uston, who popularized card counting after he made millions in the casino with his partner.
Card counting is when you literally count the cards that have appeared since the last shuffle, especially the high ones. While card counting is not infallible, it is a good way to gain a certain advantage over the other players. In the case of Ken Uston, the Supreme court found that card counting was not in fact cheating, and hence was not illegal. Ever since then, the casinos have tightened the security around the blackjack tables so that no one would be tempted to break their power once again. However, card counting in Blackjack was and still is the most popular blackjack strategy and is still used today.
