How to count cards in blackjack

Before you can actually try any of the card counting strategies on my blog, you must first understand the basic concepts of how to count cards in blackjack.

All you really need to remember is that each card is given a specific point value ranging from -1, 0, and +1. These values change depeding on what card counting system you are using. I have provided charts for each system so that you can learn the point values.

Regardless which card counting system you choose, they all serve the same purpose in the end--to predict when those sweet high cards will be coming our way. Some systems accomplish this better than others.

You will see many similarites across counting systems. High cards will always have a negative value, and low cards will always have a positive value, just some of the numbers will change. If you think you can handle it then I strongly encourage you to give it a go!
