FURTHER STUDY

Delving deep into the game of blackjack beyond the basic strategies is the name of the game here. We’re taking the aspects of gambling to another level by covering topics like full-time play, increasing the stakes, getting barred from a casino after a big win and determining when it’s time to end a session, to name a few.

Are you familiar with kinesics? By definition, it’s the ability to interpret another’s body language, facial expressions, etc. If you’re receptive to such movements and behavior, this communication can be used as a tool step up your blackjack game. According to rapper Eminem, it’s a good indicator that one is nervous when, “His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy. There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti”. Intrigued? We’ve got an article dedicated to the topic of kinesics and how it applies to the dealers.

There’s more where that came from!

Taking a break, handling the losses, common mistakes made by skilled players, costuming and becoming a career blackjack player make for great reading and all this and more can be found right here.
