Chapter Minus 1

Blackjack Rules

All the Rules


Note: This book contains about 300 charts. Larger versions of the charts can be found on this site by clicking on the links suppiled below each chart.


This chapter is divided into three parts. The first part explains the basic rules of Blackjack, and you will find this in nearly every Blackjack book. The second part provides information on over 100 variations found in casinos around the world. This part is really meant more as a reference to look up unusual rules. The third section discusses the effect of rules in a new manner. You can skip this chapter if you already know how to play, but I do include several comments to aid counters, as I believe you need to start with good habits.

The popularity of casino Blackjack has increased greatly over the last forty years since it was discovered that this is the one of the few casino games that can regularly be beaten with expert play. Despite this, the casinos have profited handsomely because very few players have the patience to practice sufficiently to beat the casinos. Interestingly, Blackjack also provides one of the greatest advantages for the casino when a bad player plays. This section contains a brief description of the basic casino Blackjack rules.

Note, since play varies enormously, casino by casino, there exist exceptions to all of the following rules.
