Strategies for Blackjack : Card Counting Techniques in the Game of Blackjack


Hi this is Daniel on behalf of Expert Village.
In this clip we are going to discuss the hi-low card counting system. We will over view the
basic principals and how it works. To start out the hi-low card counting system is a system
is which each card is assigned a value of either negative one, zero or plus one. The
player in turn keeps a running total of the cards as they are dealt. This gives them a
idea of the probability of a high value card of 10 value cards being dealt. This allow
the player to know if the deck is in there favor or in the casino’s favor. Let’s take
a quick view at what the hi-low card counting system consisted of. The hi-low card counting
system is based upon a signing point value of plus one, zero or minus one to every card
dealt all players on the table, including the dealer. Each card is assigned there own
specific point value. Aces and 10 point cards are assigned the value of negative one. Cards
7, 8 and 9, each counts as zero. In cards 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, each counts as a plus one.
As the cards are dealt the player mentally keeps a running count of the cards exposed
and makes wagering decisions base upon the current total. The higher the plus count,
the higher percentage of 10 point cards and aces remaining to be dealt. If the running
count is zero, the deck or shoe is neutral and neither the player nor the dealer has
the advantage.
