Card Counting

Card counting is predicated on the fact that high cards such as aces and 10s favour the player while low cards such as fours, fives and sixs favour the dealers. With aces and 10s your chances of hitting blackjack is brighter and the payout for blackjack is 3/2. The only exception here is when the dealer also holds blackjack. Doubling becomes more profitable if you have 10s. 10s also makes insurance bet more valuable.

On the other hand, low cards favour the dealer more than the player. This is because they make it possible for the dealer to hit stiffs hand while the player has no option other than to stand or hit in accordance with the rule of blackjack.

It is not true that card counting requires higher mental abilities before one can apply the strategies. This is because, you do not need to memorize or track particular cards. What you are expected to do is to give a specific point score to each of the cards and through this point score the sum of the cards can be tracked. The above false believe emanated from the film Rain Main.
