My name is Gregory Petersen, and I've been playing blackjack in casinos, both online and off, for over 15 years. In that time, I've picked up some ideas about blackjack strategy, and the purpose of this blog is to share some of what I've learned. Why do I do this? I guess it's just my way of giving back to the game that's been so much fun for me.

You should understand that I believe that blackjack, and gambling, for that matter, are supposed to be for fun. I don't make my living gambling, and I don't recommend that you try to make a living gambling, either. There are better ways to spend your productive work-time and career-time. In fact, I'd be sad if the only legacy I had to leave my children and grandchildren was the fact that I'd contributed nothing more to life than to have played games for money.

On the other hand, I don't think that playing 21 at a casino or gambling with an advantage is wrong, either. If you want to learn how to count cards, it's a lot of work, but it can be worthwhile. Just because I think you should have a  "real" career beyond your gambling doesn't mean that I think you shouldn't exploit every advantage available to you. There are four games in a casino where you can get advantage, and you should learn to play all of them as well as you can. These four games are blackjack, video poker, poker, and sports betting.

This blog focuses on blackjack. I originally launched it in 2008, but then I got distracted by other things. (I learned how to play video poker in a casino for one thing.) Now I'm going to start posting again. Good lord willing and the creek don't rise, I'll maintain some consistency with my posting this time around.

Almost all casino provides great range and support of different exciting gambling games - but before you start playing them you need eg to download video poker game online and the same you can do with any blackjack software

All these strategies and tips need practice. Only then you can play blackjack for money and win with pleasure. So, take your chances and play smart.
