Subject: The Best Blackjack Basic Strategy
The blackjack basic strategy (BBS) is a must for each and every blackjack player. No gambler should
enter a casino and sit at a blackjack table without solid knowledge of BBS.
Learning the basic strategy is considered a very difficult process by many. The problem is caused by
the wrong learning methods. There are many tutorials (printed books, ebooks, Web pages) that stress
learning by following spreadsheet-like charts/tables. The methods rely heavily on mechanical
memorizing. There are lots and lots of letters in spreadsheets with many, many cells: H, D, SP, S…
The best procedure of learning the blackjack basic strategy applies the ‘three color-coded
1) ‘Split Pairs’ Chart: If first two cards not applicable, move quickly to the next cheat sheet.
2) ‘Double Down’ Table: If first two cards not applicable, move quickly to the last cheat sheet.
3) ‘Hit or Stand’ Cheat Sheet: A final decision must be made now; a basic strategy player will
either stand, or hit.
Instead of memorizing a large number of letter settings, the player only visualizes actions. The
action to take (e.g. ‘hit’) is colored in red; the non-action (e.g. ‘stand’) is grayed out.
There is also a demarcation line between 6 and 7 for Dealer’s up-card (face-card).
The average person will learn (near) perfectly basic strategy in one week or so. The method is
guaranteed… and it is free.
