Is your blackjack game fuel-efficient? Alternatively, is your game one that guzzles your money away just like a Hummer guzzles its owner’s money on fuel?
Most players (and I do mean most players) believe their blackjack game needs no repairs or a much-needed scheduled tune up. Would you drive your car on a long trip with no attention paid to the air pressure in your tires, without checking the oil level and filters, or the current performance level of your engine? Of course you wouldn’t, because all of these functions have an impact on your arrival time, and how much the actual trip will cost you.
Well, your blackjack game is no different; you need to pay attention to what tables you sit down at and what the rules of the game are, just as you need to pay attention to your car and the roads you will be driving during your trip. There is no difference between the two. Poor pre-trip planning will have an adverse affect on your overall results at the blackjack tables just like they would on your cars trip performance.

Because if that were really the case I would not be writing this article, and other professional players would not be giving up their valuable time to share their knowledge with you in the articles they write for the Blackjack Insider. What we accomplish by having the ability to count cards is the same luxury that the casinos have against you on most hands that you play. We, the card counters, are the favorite to win that particular hand just like the casinos are a favorite against you.
However, do not give up because of this, because we all love to play the game of blackjack and the focus of this article is to show you that you can play this game without losing all of your money even if you are not an accomplished card counter.
