A Basic Betting Strategy

have you ever noticed how other players raise their bets? Some increase after a losing hand. Others increase after winning hand. With others, it's a guessing games as though they’re trying to divine what the dealer will do in the next hand. My advice is to flat-bet (bet the same amount) until you’re three bets ahead of the dealer. If you’re a $10 bettor, wait until you've won $30 before considering raising s-our bet. So three is also the keys word for this idea. Win three bets before you increase. How much should you increase? For now, consider just 25 percent. For example, if you’re betting $10, increase to $13 and try to win three more bets, then increase another 25 percent (from, $13 to $17). Don't worry about betting in two colors of chips. Just ask the dealer to change some $5 chips into $1 chips. We'll discuss this more in 7.

Now, let's jump into the advantage arena. Our discussion of advantage Online Blackjack Games begins in 4 with a discussion of the state of the art of advantage systems. To further your understanding of the advantage method discussed in 7, we explain how and why the non-random shuffle can engender exploitable player biases in 5. And, since the advantage method described in 7 involves searching for and playing in player-favorable and dealer-breaking games, we define these biased games and offer proof that they exist in 6. The recreational player or occasional gambler who may not be interested in this background information may prefer to skip right to 7.

Don't Do Anything That Interferes with Fair Play
After a while, these "I-would-have-had" stories become banalities that aren't worth a second thought.
Three other guidelines in this area are:

Do not act out of turn. When you do, you inequitably alter the effects of position in the game by providing information on your intentions to players who shouldn't have it.

- Try, not to accidentally expose your cards when you fold them. This is particularly important in Stud: Don't turn over your hole cards when you fold!

- Don't make commentary about the hand while it is in progress. For example, in Omaha, don't proclaim the fact that the river card enabled a low; it is the responsibility of each player to recognize things like that. Also, despite the prevalence of the custom, there is no reason to announce the possibilities of each player's hand as you deal Stud.

- Never give advice during a hand. If you are out of the pot and another player wants to show you his cards, you can look at them, but you shouldn't say anything until the hand is over. And you should make sure that everyone else gets to see the same cards when the hand is complete. Show one, show a11.
