Another important factor in choosing a system is the time you have available to play Blackjack. Probably it will surprise you, but a player who wants to spend much time at the tables should learn a very simple system. I say this because, although this is actually quite easy, it requires good concentration and the more the system is simpler, more focus will be easy for an extended period of time. On the other hand, if you’re going to play for 3 or 4 hours a week, then a more difficult it can work well as a complicated system is usually more powerful and optimize the time you spend at the tables.
Now some of you, “Type A”, will be thinking that will take a long time at the tables and they’ll use a very powerful (and complicated) to get the most money possible from your game. The problem here is that under these circumstances, the errors start to creep in and this could cause you to lose your advantage.
The basic principle that applies is: “Choose it Simple, Stupid.” If you want to get the most from the game, do what I told you, you learn two counting systems. One for games where there are more decks of cards and one for the game with a single deck of cards. It’s not that hard to learn to count cards and when we enter into the lessons you’ll notice, the exercises that will teach you, will implement this strategy.
