Due to their own nature, people tend to believe in myths and legend. This trend is even more emphasized when it comes to card games.
What we tend to think is that our luck depends on certain actions or behaviours we do or we don’t.
We can ensure you that there is nothing illogical or magical behind this game.
Below we are going to explain, learn more and debunk a few myths on Blackjack.
Despite his role, which makes him look as our opponent, the main goal of the dealer is not beating us.
Obviously, he has to follow the rules and try everything to win. But, believe it or not, his/her behaviour strongly depends on the games’ rules. Then, if the dealer keeps calling cards to overcome your score, just think that he cannot do differently.
For some reason, there are people who believe that counting the cards is illegal. Although in the famous movies, the security chief seems to have as his main goal to catch the customers who are counting the cards, we can ensure you, this isn’t illegal at all.
To be totally honest, it is not a bad practice at all, for the simple reason that this is not possible. Not even the best Rain Man (Dustin Hoffman) can predict the cards that are going to be pulled out from the deck.
As it happens for almost all the card games, also when we play blackjack there is a high chance that we are not the first player who receives the cards.
For a mysterious reason, there are people who believe that this can negatively affect their score, nothing is more wrong. It seems obvious that no one knows which card will be pulled out of the deck.
For the same reason, it is impossible that the card you receive being sat on a specific place at the table can be judged better or worse than the card you could receive if you were sat in a different place. Once again, no one can predict the future, what we can do, instead, is paying attention, and learning the rules.
For the newbies, when we say blackjack, we say 21. If in one hand this is true, 21 is our number, on the other hand, it isn’t. Although we have as the polar star that number, and we want to get close enough to it, what matters is only the result we get. It is only the victory which counts, the score we have used to reach it doesn’t matter. Then, in a nutshell, whether we have 14 on the table doesn’t matter, as long as the dealer dust. It is also true that a bigger number gives us a higher chance of winning, just because the dealer must call for a card if he doesn’t reach the minimum score of 16 as the rule enforce.
Once we have learned how to play, which is very simple, we will understand how silly it would be to believe in fate and superstitions.
