Beginner book for the weekend warrior
  • Hi folks

    Just a guy who wants to play in casinos every so often. I play low-limit texas hold em now, but I want to play blackjack when there are times when the crowd is too tight or not enough fish. So far, I've done a lot of progressive playing and it sure seems to work and I like it. I am not looking for anything too mathmatically tedious and my goal is rather conservative. I am not playing to ever be a pro.

    Thanks

    Jim
  • Jim - Welcome to the Forum. From what you say you want, I would recommend Fred Renzey's "Blackjack Bluebook II". It covers the whole gamut from basic strategy to beginner/intermediate counting to advanced counting in an easy to understand format.

    p.s. Fred is also a member and frequent poster on this forum.
  • buy Dr. Laura's book on how wives should treat husbands and look-up post by surfteq and you will learn for free how to play....
  • There is a book called Blackjack Blueprint-How to play Like a Pro-Partime.
    A book I've found quite useful is A Womans Guide to Blackjack. One of the most informative books I've found on the subject,even for a man. Frugal Gambling by Jean Scott and Max Rubins "Comp City" can help you get much more from the casinos then most people think possible.
  • I agree about Fred Renzey's Blackjack Bluebook II I read it and Knockout + Professional Blackjack and the latter two were kinda over my head probably better suited for advanced players. Bluebook II was right on time for me, also i call them as i see them this site hit or stand has really helped me.

    Welcom tjg blackjack bluebook 2 should do the trick as well as blackbelt in blackjack. Two helpful hints to start off would be to take the word progression out of your thought process and learn basic strategy.LOL
