black jack is a game that reminds me of a rollercoaster. Blackjack is a game that kicks off slowly, but gradually gets faster. As you build up your bankroll, you feel like you are slowly getting to the top of the coaster and then when you aren’t expecting it, the bottom drops out.

black jack is so akin to a roller coaster the similarities are ghastly. As with the popular amusement ride, your blackjack game will peak and things will seem to be going well for a time before it bottoms out again. Of course you have to be a blackjack player that will be able to adjust well to the ups and downs of the game mainly because the game of blackjack is choked full of them.

If you like the petite coaster, a coaster that cannot go too high or fast, then bet small. If you find the only way you can enjoy the mad ride is with a larger bet, then jump aboard for the roller coaster ride of your life on the monster coaster. The high stakes gambler will love the view from the monster rollercoaster because he or she is not thinking about the drop as they rush hastily to the top of the game.

A win goal and a loss limit works well in blackjack, but very few bettors adhere to it. In blackjack, if you "get on the rollercoaster" as it’s going up, that’s just great, but when the cards "go south" and the coaster starts to twist and turn, you had better escape in a hurry.

If you don’t, you will not easily recount how much you enjoyed life while your bankroll was "up". The only thing you will remember is a lot of uncertainties, an awesome ride … your head in the stratosphere. As you are recalling "what ifs", you won’t easily recount how "high up" you went but you will be reminded of that disastrous fall as clear as day.

A few individuals enjoy vingt-et-un for excitement, others for $$$$ and others for fun and $$$$. It doesn’t matter if you are familiar with black jack or not, why not try and to gamble on a internet game of 21 using your computer from the comfort of your condominium?

Now, how can you succeed at 21? You will have to achieve the edge but to do this you need to remember the basic black jack strategy as well as the art of card counting plus, you have to use the information from card counting to place bigger bets when the edge swings in your direction and lesser bets when the edge is in the dealer’s direction. Aside from that, you should also be bankrolled enough to survive the brief fluctuations that almost always will occur no matter how decent a vingt-et-un gambler you are.

Last but no less important you need to understand how to find the strongest games, disguise your card counting techniques, and be mentally set for many awful brief bad luck rounds.

If you are a newbie player and desire to wager on black jack at a brick and mortar casino, I insist that you sit near the 3rd base side of the table which is the dealers right. The reason behind this is that it might give you a tiny bit of additional time to determine how you should bet on your hand. Even though this is a excellent location for amateurs, I wouldn’t advise you to settle at the anchor location which is the absolutely last position. The Anchor player feels all kinds of pressure to make the correct play that will save the table.
