Dear Wizard of Odds/Vegas,

I really enjoy your website, especially the blackjack trainer:


I find it relatively simple to memorize hard values, but soft values appear way too seldom for me to properly train for it. It would be great if you can add soft-only, splits-only and hard-only training modes so that more people can train for the basic strategy. I am more than happy to work with the source code if you are busy and don't mind me working on it. Thanks!

I had the same memory troubles and used the free site www.flashcardmachine.com to create a couple of flash card sets to help myself study.

You can look at what I did if you'd like. These aren't perfect or comprehensive, but you get the idea. All use the Wizard's strategy for 4-8 decks, dealer hits soft 17. My apologies for any errors.



Split hands

Soft hands 13-16

Above plus other hands


By the way, it's free to register and create your own flash cards. (They do accept donations.) The system is a little clunky but it works.

Try www.hitorstand.net and set it to "difficult." I found this to be the most realistic way to train.
