Improve Your Average Earnings per Hour in Blackjack

If you want to improve your earnings per hour with blackjack, there are a few things that you will need to consider. These are your advantage over the house, the number of hands that you can play in an hour, and the amount of money that you spend on each one. When you can sync all of these together in perfect harmony, you can easily make $20 or more without having to risk tons of money!

So, using the factors listed above, here's how you can make sure that you are earning up to your potential: make sure that you are betting about $25 per hand, find a venue or site that allows you to sit through at least 80 hands per hour, and make sure that your advantage is more than 1%. That's all there really is to it. To do it, find a table with a $10 minimum bet and try to sit where there are two to three other participants at most to increase the speed of things.

Those who know how to count cards - even at a basic level - should do the following: wager $10 at a true count or TC of 1 or below, $20 at 2, $60 at 3, $120 at 4 and, when at five or more, $160 whenever you are involved in a game with 75% shoe penetration. This seems scary, but it is mathematically sound. Now, remember that only live dealer options can be profitable like this in an online sense since RNGs do not allow for shoe penetration in the same manner.

Finally, you will want to make sure that you find a venue in which the rules are favorable. For instance, the dealer should be forced to stand on 17 or hit on 16 as this increases your odds of winning. It's always a good idea to use a strategy chart, as well. If you are online, you can print it out and keep it next to you as you go. However, if you are in a live establishment, then you will need to memorize the chart since dealers don't take very kindly to bringing cheat sheets to the table.
