Cards being dealt


Recommended Posts

Hi Ellis,

I know it sound stupid but just want to clarify how are the cards being dealt in blackjack over at our side?

From a shoe with several deck ie 8 decks with a cut card?

Or a continous shuffling machine with 4-6 decks ?

Do the dealer burn a card everytime before dealing to the player?

Just wants to clarify for any difference in usage of shuffling machine as well as the way the dealer deal the cards

Regards,

Ivan

Hi Ivan, First, no the dealer does not burn a card before each hand. Only when a new dealer comes in the game and at the start of a shoe. This was done and still is by a few casinos to thwart counters but then the casinos realized they beat counters anyway so the practice has become a waste of time and cards.

In the states cards are hand shuffled, and some use a regular 2 shoe shuffle machine and some use continuous shuffle machine. High stakes is usually hand shuffled which I slightly prefer.

We have 1,2,4,6 and 8 deck shoes. 4 decks has become quite rare. Of these, I prefer 2 and 8 deck. The cut card is about 3/4 in. But 1 deck they only deal 2 or 3 hands before shuffling so it is very slow.

BTW, there is no such thing as a stupid question on this forum.

Hi Ellis,

Over in Singapore, Blackjack is being shuffled using continuous shuffling machine which the dealer picks up the break cards and insert back into the machine again. Plus they will burn a card before dealing.

Does it make a difference ? when using Zero Proximity and Precision black jack ?

Pls advise to enhance learning

Regards,

Ivan
