Sitting down to play blackjack, whether, at a land-based casino or online, you'll see that many of the players at your elbows appear to have little idea of what they're doing. Yes, they know the game is about getting as close to 21. But as far as any blackjack tips or tricks, let alone any strategies, go, they are pretty clueless. Blackjack is not just a game of luck. With knowledge and skill, you can bring the casino odds down enough to give you a fair chance of taking home some winnings.
