One of the enjoyable ways to wager on chemin de fer and be a consistent winner is to compete like the dealer plays.

You will discover more people will balk at the tables if you do so, but why would you care? You’ll win, more frequently, over a period of time if you habitually play like the dealer. Try it at home, on the net, or in real life in the land based betting houses on a "slow day," but ensure you try it because it works.

It is the easiest method to compete with no counting, definitely no 10’s or 5’s or anything else to keep in mind. If you pause and consider it, this is why this "scheme" will be the single method you’ll ever need:

How regularly does the casino show a two and make a good hand? How regularly does a dealer show a three, turn over a ten, and end up making a strong hand? How often have you split an eight-eight against a croupier’s face and had 2 losing hands rather than 1? How many times have you split a pair of Aces versus a dealer’s face and had got losing hands instead of one?

It’s really amazing how the dealer can pull a hand out with initial hands of 12,13,fourteen,fifteen, even 16. It happens because it’s supposed to happen, because of the number of small value cards in the deck and other elements.

Try this plan and see if you compete any better than you have in the past. Remember, if you attempt this plan or any other, do it regularly and with this plan it means you play like the dealer each time. Just hit till you get 17 and stand.
