Hey Andy, I have read this book call play blackjack as a business by Lawrence revere. In this book, the basic strategy says when you have 4-4, you never split them, you always hit. Which is different from your basic strategy. Also there are few more differences between yours and his. Which one do you think is more powerful than the other?
Different casino rules necessitate changes in basic strategy. I’m guessing that the basic strategy you are referring to is for a game without double after split allowed. Most casinos nowadays allow doubling after splitting, making splitting more favorable. Revere originally wrote that book in the 1960s, and blackjack conditions have changed greatly since then.
Rules can vary from casino to casino, sometimes even from table to table in the same casino! Before you play, you should check the rules and make sure you know the correct basic strategy for the rules, and calculate the casino’s advantage. Here’s a good strategy chart generator for the most common rule variations: Blackjack Basic Strategy Calculator
Here is a chart for the value to the player of a variety of rule variations: Blackjack rule variations
Andy, many thanks; I bought your dvd years ago & played 1000s of hands exclusively using your strategy, for years, at B, Mandalay & MGM Grand… I always sat at first base because I outlasted everyone & had so much fun. I moved to poker several years ago (I’m a well-known day trader)… Anyways a sincere thanks; your rules deliver best player odds & I had tons of fun & saved a lot thanks to you. Everybody who plays blackjack should get your dvd, you’re aces. -Ken C
