The ability to “read the enemy”, learning from the expression of his face the power of his cards, is very important for those games where participants play not against the dealer (casino), but against each other. This is relevant, above all, for poker, where the ability to bluff is valued so that others believe you. But, it is worth noting that similar skills may well be useful against the dealer.
How to find out the dealer?
There are many varieties of blackjack, where the dealer, handing over the cards, one of them opens. The rules are very simple and you know exactly about them – if an open card is an ace or has a value of 10 points, then, in this case, the closed card is checked to see if it has blackjack. This is done so that the player does not have the slightest opportunity to see the combination of the casino. However, we can not exclude the possibility that the dealer himself will issue a combination with his gestures or with an expression of the place. Your task is to find out the dealer and you will have a very serious advantage over the gambling house.
It is a mistake to say that each dealer has this kind of drawback. Experienced employees remain impassive, and in general to find such a casino employee will be very problematic, but, nevertheless, it is possible. Your task is to find a suitable employee and start a game with him.
It’s safe to say that the player’s ability to read not only his opponents, but also the dealer, turns a professional into a real master. It is important to remember, mark and analyze the actions of opponents, noting his facial expressions or movements. A dealer in blackjack must necessarily follow very strict rules – this is what the casino requires of him.
How legal it is
Analysis of the actions of the dealer can not exactly be called fraud – you do not violate any rules of the gambling establishment, do not use prohibited technical means, do not cheat. It can be noted that the attempt to “crack the dealer” will be as honest as the analysis of the actions of players in poker. And if the dealer that serves the players can not do their work really well, then this is certainly not the client of the gambling establishment.
Let us turn to the point. So, there are some very important points that you need to pay attention to. The first and most important thing is how long the dealer deals with the cards. All the details are important – including how much the dealer bends the received card, considering the value. In fact, such seemingly insignificant information can bring you great benefits.
If the dealer has a low-dignity card – in this case the croupier bends it a bit more than usual. This is done to make sure that he did not have an ace. This is especially true for the four – writing this number is very similar to the letter “A”. Experienced players note that often the dealer does not want to take risks and considers the card intently, opening it for himself almost completely. And inexperienced casino employees for several rounds may well reconsider the card that they fell a few times.
Let’s turn to high-value cards with pictures – Jack, Queen and Ace. An important point is that all of them, as is known, have a face value of 10 points and, therefore, they do not need to consider these cards at all. As a result, casino employees watch these cards very quickly, which is what ultimately gives them.
Our recommendation is to monitor the dealer. If the croupier spends a different amount of time watching cards – you will definitely be able to take advantage of this. It is not out of place to watch how the dealer reacts to certain cards. It is necessary to remember all non-standard moments in mimicry and gestures, correlating them with the cards that came to the dealer.
Very important is the cousin’s psychological stability – if he can not keep his composure, is embarrassed by compliments, he is angry with losses, it can affect his actions or his face. Continuing to visit the same casino, you, having due care and observation, you can fully explore the staff. If you are embarrassed that you may be acting dishonestly – remember that the casino initially has a mathematical advantage not in your favor.
By the way, recently there has been a tendency when the administration of gambling houses takes measures against reading players’ emotions by dealers. Sometimes the croupier does not open a closed card at all (and this occurs more and more often) until the player decides on their boxes.
