When to Hit and When to Stand in Blackjack
Hoffman knew based on his previous experience that getting a good grip on a knife soaked with blood and other fluids can be a real problem. This model is basically a smaller version of the Z. It was felt that his handle work was somewhat crude and he fell far behind on his production orders so deadlines were not met. Below are several views of the Z fillet knife. It all had to be done by hand.
This is the 3rd serious makeover of this page. I have recently been in contact with the father of both the Condor and Lakota brand Phillip W. Hoffman thus there are quite a lot of blanks that I can now fill in. For this rewrite I am going to start off with some background info about the man that started it all.
At this point I want to thank Mr. Hoffman for taking the time to answer my questions. His efforts are greatly appreciated. Hoffman grew up in the Los Angeles CA area in the 's. In that period of our nations history especially during the period of WWII money was tight and everyone was forced to make do with very little.
Rationing was a way of life. A child in this period of time was forced to improvise when it came to having fun. Hoffman tells me there was very little in the way of toys in the stores at the time which makes sense to me given the fact that the materials and equipment along with the labor which are needed to make such things was far to precious at that time.
This being the case one was forced to create ones own toys. In Mr. Hoffman's circle of friends it was popular to take apart roller skates to make skate boards. This was done by using parts from the roller skates a two-by-four Which really did measure 2"x4"! Hoffman tells me he was even able to make his own microscope by using eight ten cent magnifying glasses and stacking them above each other supported with a wooden dowel.
The most common dilemma that a player has to go through is when to hit or stand. Most professional players have their own basic blackjack strategy to guide them when would be the best time to stand and when would be the best time to hit. Some players may closely follow their own strategy thereby taking the least risks. Others will act boldly and ask to be hit when they are showing a 16 for example. Players who have mastered the art of card counting are very courageous.
But this skill is harder to implement with the recent technological advances. A"hit" means that you would like to take another card from the deck. If you have a higher chance of reaching a hand closer to or equal to 21, you can make a hit. In the casinos you rarely say"hit" or"hit me", the common signal is by tapping the cards or just the table with your finger.
A"stand" means that you're sticking with your total of two cards. You do this when the card in hand has a high probability of winning or simply because there is a high probability of a bust if you will ask for another card. In blackjack you play against the dealer not against the other players as is the case at Texas Hold em poker sites.
The house edge over a player in blackjack starts at about 5. By properly hitting and standing, you can improve your odds by over 3 percent. This is one of the worst scenarios on the table. What you should consider in blackjack is that a card with a value of 10, which are 10, Jack, Queen, and King, is more likely to appear than any other single card value. Also, the dealer with an Ace has more chances of drawing cards without getting busted.
Your approach is to aggressively play the game by trying to get a good hand like a 17 and above, as the dealer is likely to have a strong hand. There is still a 1-in chance that the dealer has a blackjack and a 4-in chance of a So you need a strong hand to compete.
Players ask me more questions about betting systems for blackjack than just about any other topic. Not betting systems for card counters—just betting systems. They can make you more likely to win in the short run in the case of Oscar's System, a lot more likely.
But not in the long run. I just want to win on this one short run. As a matter of fact, there are betting systems that provide a player a much bigger chance of finishing a trip with a win than a loss. You just want a win this weekend. Note: To learn how to win at blackjack over the long run, with or without card counting, start with our Intro to Winning Blackjack. There are two main types of betting systems for blackjack or any casino game—positive progressions and negative progressions.
With a positive progression, the general theory is that you raise your bets after wins, which means that your bigger bets are primarily funded by money won. This is a conservative betting system insofar as a long string of losses will not wipe out your bankroll as quickly as with a negative progression. With a negative progression, you raise your bets after your losses.
This is more dangerous, since a bad run of losses can wipe you out quickly. The goal for any series of bets is to win just one unit, then start a new series. Each series starts with a one-unit bet. After any win, the next bet is one unit more than the previous bet. After any loss, the next bet is identical to the previous bet. That is, if you lose a two-unit bet, your next bet is a two-unit bet until you have a win, at which point you raise your bet one unit to a three-unit bet.
That is the whole system, except for one stipulation—Never place any bet that would result in a win for the series of more than one unit. Yet, a much shorter run of wins can get back your previous losses on a series, since you raise your bets following wins. Strings of losses hurt less, yet strings of wins pay more. When Oscar told Dr. Wilson that he had been using this system for many years and had never had a losing weekend in Las Vegas, Dr.
