Casinos will usually have a plethora of card games that the player can choose from. Most of them are games of chance. However, there are some players who believe that they can somehow make better decisions by basing upon the number of cards left in the deck and the knowledge of what exactly these cards are. They call it ‘card counting’ and the players who practice it are called advantage players.
Why is Card Counting Useful
Theoretically, it’s a very viable system. If you keep a level head and don’t get easily distracted by all the hustle and bustle in the casino, then you could perhaps learn it and gain an extra advantage on the casino. Decreasing the house edge could significantly improve your chances of winning and beating the casino in the long run, especially in games such as blackjack and baccarat.
