Hi all,

So as a perk of the top level loyalty programme at my casino in London, there’s a blackjack tournament this week. Basic rules are - in each round there’s six players at the table, you start of with 1k theoretical chips, minimum stake on any one hand is 50, there are ten hands per round. Leader at each table qualifies for next round etc and process restarts is.

My question is - does anyone think there’s any kind of advantageous staking strategy to maximise the chances of qualification? Should you be looking at what your competitors have in their stack and adjusting size of bet accordingly? Any advice?

Thanks.

Yes, just remember that you are playing against the other players and not the dealer. I generally play slow for the first half of the round and then start adjusting your bets based on what the big stacks are doing.

There are some good books on BJ tournament strategy or you can just read some basics from sites like this: https://www.888casino.com/blog/blackjack-strategy-guide/blackjack-tournaments
