Many years ago now, Yahoo! implemented an on-line blackjack game at their popular website.
Although I'm long since "retired," I had a lot of fun playing here for the several weeks that I did.

While playing, I simply could not believe how poorly some people play blackjack!! It is completely unreal! Adam, Paul, are you reading this? Guys, you simply would not believe it! I discovered most people don't even have a clue as to what Basic Strategy is, let alone know how to implement it. I saw plays that border on outlandish... Splitting tens... Doubling on a hard 15 or 16, hitting a hard 17 or 18, standing unnecessarily on soft totals that are under 11... etc., etc. Unreal!

If you are visiting from Australia and are looking for a site that lists casinos that offer gameplay in Australian Dollar, you can visit AU Gambling.  They list some very good casinos that are great for Australians to play in. A strong focus is also on the Aristocrat Pokies that are popular in the Aussieland.

This blackjack section is my effort to help educate the few who would actually like to learn how to improve their play. I think I'm qualified to do so. I've been playing blackjack for over 31 years, own more than 68 books on the game, and currently retired with more money in the Yahoo! blackjack community ($460,000) than anyone else, although Tusk was right behind me at the time and now, (update!)  with over 620,000 dollars, has long passed me by!!

Tusk wrote to me during the middle of May letting me know she started using my Basic Strategy chart with some initial success. Wow, did she ever!
