Online Blackjack Games Video Games


Online Blackjack Games video machines can be seen in most casinos, and can be played for either 25¢ or $1 tokens. Some machines limit the player to five coins bet at one time, and others go up to 100 coins at one time. The rules vary from machine to machine, but are roughly the same as the table games of online blackjack games.

However, although most options are available, such as doubling down and splitting of cards, and in some machines, even surrender, the usual payoff on a online blackjack games is even money instead of 3-2, and that fact alone makes these machines poor selections for an astute bettor. We're not going into the ramifications of video online blackjack games other than to suggest that you avoid the games. For one thing, each time you play a new hand, you're theoretically facing a newly shuffled deck of cards. Thus, you can't count cards, or know if the deck is turning favorable or unfavorable; with the rules of play it's always slightly unfavorable to the player. And there's no dealer to read for tells.

Your best bet is to play at a regular online blackjack games table against a single-deck games. Not only will you have all options available, including a 3-2 payoff for a online blackjack games, but you can also count cards and take advantage of solid situations when the deck is in your favor by raising your bets. If you're playing for $1 a pop at the video machine, find a $1 games (such as in the Horseshoe in Las Vegas) in which you face only a single deck. If you're playing against a double deck, that's OK also. You'll have a much better shot at winning if you read and study our page on online blackjack games in this Site.

Fourth Street: The Second Betting Round
Fourth street is a critical decision point in seven-card hi/lo split. You want to improve on fourth street if you're going to continue the hand. Ideally, you want to catch a low card that doesn't pair you and that continues either a flush draw or straight draw. Of course, you usually won't hit the ideal. But when you do, get aggressive. Strong two-way draws are very strong hands in hi/lo split poker. This is especially true in seven-card stud if you have a threatening board in addition to strong draws.

Sometimes any improvement, even marginal improvement, is enough to continue, and sometimes you want to look for a strong improvement. How you should play your hand on fourth street depends mostly on the size of the pot-on whether it was raised or not on third street. If the pot has been raised, it's usually big enough to justify chasing some. I tend to let the other players have the little pots, while I go after the big pots aggressively. With a large pot, just a little bit of an improvement is enough to take off another card.
