Basic Blackjack by Stanford Wong has the strategy you want.
Thanks! So, am i right in assuming that I have the advantage with these rules or am i doing something wrong?
Also, could you paste the strategy here please?
Hi henrydang, welcome to the forums.
Five Card Charlie is normally worth 1.46% to the player, but since you're only getting half-pay I'd assume it's half the value (as it still would be a benefit to get paid on a non blackjack immediately... never pushing). Also, the .77% figure is listed as you denoted in the rules variations from the Wiz.
I'm also showing for 3:2 6D S17 D9-11 SP4 NRSA NS DAS, the house edge with the cut card effect is .52232% (/games/blackjack/calculator/).
Thus, if the HE is .52232% - 5 Card Charlie = .52232% - .773% = -.22068%
Slight player edge. With counting cards this could be pretty good... Is your plan to just play basic on this .22% player edge, or to also count/etc?
