Blackjack is a great game to lean and play, since it is a game that is played both by chance; you rely on your luck in order to get the cards that you need, and also you have to rely on your skill in order to make the correct decisions. When, however, you decide to learn how to play Blackjack, and then there are a few things that you need to think about. Firstly, you need to think about what kind of blackjack you want to learn. There are several variations on the classic game, and if you intend on traveling to many casinos, then it would be a good idea to learn all of them.
A good way to learn blackjack is to get a good book that you can read and that explains all the different combinations, moves and strategies. There are many such books, and perhaps the best one is by the legendary Ken Uston. However, one thing the books cannot give you is the practice that you need. On one, you can get this practice in any casino. However, this will mean spending a lot of money on games in which you will lose, unless you are very lucky, since you do not yet have the skill in which to play. However, there are also the online casinos that let you play free blackjack games and get the practice that you need.Written by Jill Salinger 03.07.05
