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
charts’.
 
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.

Read the complete tutorial and download (then print) the three color-coded charts — all for free:

No doubt, this best (and FREE) blackjack basic strategy hit a grand-slam! It ruffled some feathers
alright. But the main point is: Many would-be BJ players realized they were fooled by other
strategies — and they had to pay for them! There are listings on Amazon, with “colored blackjack
strategy cards” that sell for some $20 a pop!

This free strategy is also much easier to memorize as it does NOT require letters. The color-coded
cards here are based on one COLOR: RED for MAIN ACTION: ‘Pair Splitting, ‘Doubling Down’,
‘Hitting’. 

The player gets his/her first two cards.

1) Are the two cards forming a PAIR?
•	A = Yes; if the color is RED on the ‘Split’ coded card, then SPLIT the hand
•	http://saliu.com/bbs/messages/590.html
•	(Blackjack ‘Pairs Splitting’ Basic Strategy Card)

•	B = No; move quickly to case-scenario 2)


2) Are the two cards a DOUBLE DOWN combination (e.g. sum up to 9, 10, 11)?
•	A = Yes; if the color is RED on the ‘Double’ strategy card, then DOUBLE DOWN the hand
•	http://saliu.com/bbs/messages/592.html
•	(Blackjack ‘Double Down’ Basic Strategy Card)

•	B = No; move quickly to case-scenario 3)


3) If 1) or 2) above did NOT apply, the player must make a final decision
•	A = If the color is RED on the ‘Hit/Stand’ colored card, then HIT the hand (i.e. DRAW
another blackjack card)
•	http://saliu.com/bbs/messages/593.html
•	(Blackjack ‘Hit or Stand’ Basic Strategy Card)

•	B = If the color is grayed out, the player STANDS.


Of course, you can always learn the best basic strategy GLOBALLY by reinforcing the instructions on
the main blackjack strategy page:
