When playing Blackjack the most important feature to remember is that there are four times as many cards that have a value of 10 (10, J,Q,K) as any other value. Most winning Black Jack players assume that the dealer’s hole card is a ten, along with any cards that need to be drawn, since there is a 25% each time. If one’s cards add up to more than 12 there is a much greater chance of busting. When the dealer is showing either a 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 they will have to draw another card, and have a good chance of busting. The player has the best opportunity (for the dealer to bust) when the dealer is showing a 5 or 6.
