Despite its overall simplicity, the game of blackjack has very much to be dwelt upon. Since the most experienced players are following a quite complicated approach to it. To them the participation in the gaming process is not confined merely to pulling a card out of the pack, so that the sum of the pulled out cards would be equal to twenty one. They are trying to hold the entire gaming process in their fist by the application of mathematical apparatus; they are trying to calculate the expected card’s pulling out by the probability theory and statistic formulae of mathematical expectation.
Those formulae are of the highest assistance, since their application turns the scales in the favour of the player and perceptibly increases their chances for win, although being quite complicated in use. So as to be able to use them quickly and mentally perform relatively complicated mathematical calculations, based on what is happening at the table, one should possess out-of-the common intelligence, and, of course, have constant blackjack training in order not to lose the skill. Luckily there exist plenty of blackjack programs, allowing to improve one’s skills in the game and train his or her mental abilities, if they would suffice for a successful performance in the game of blackjack. The conclusion would be as follows: if you are eager to become a professional player and raise substantial capital in so doing, take a secondary school student’s book in math and revise the probability theory.
