Wiseguy Blackjack

Backjack Game - Online Blackjack Game


Welcome to Wiseguy Blackjack! My name is Steve and you have entered my new Blackjack site. I love to play Blackjack! Hell, I just love to gamble, period. But, Blackjack is my favorite game. It is also a game that can be won on a consistent basis, if you are willing to put in the work required to be a winner more often than not. I talk about Blackjack with just about anyone who will listen - usually over drinks. One day a friend of mine said "Steve why don't you quit bugging us with all of this Blackjack talk and start a website about it instead?" So, here it is. I do hope you enjoy it and learn something about the game of Blackjack along the way.

Why Wiseguy Blackjack?

The answer to that question is that I had to name the site something and all the other names were already taken. Ok. Maybe I am not being completely honest. I wanted a name that was catchy and fun. And, when deciding how to construct a website that would acutally help gamblers play blackjack better, I had to come up with a profile, if you will, of what the make-up is of a successful gambler, someone who plays the game and comes out ahead most of the time.

All of us have known people who just seem to be lucky at Blackjack and gambling in general. My wife's grandfather was one of these individuals. A guy you who would tell you stories you just knew were not true. A person that just has to be full of shit. But, every time you are around them, they win! You tell yourself - and others that he or she is just a lucky bastard. A wiseguy.

However, the truth could not be more different. We would go to the horse races with my wife's grandfather and he would win. Every time. We called him lucky. But, only I knew that he got up at 5:00 a.m., before anyone else was awake, and drove to the nearest convenience to pick up the daily racing form. He studied the statistics on each horse in each race for at least two hours before the rest of us had eaten breakfast! And this is what a wiseguy does. He studys more than the rest. He figures out all of the angles and odds. He spends more time reading everything he can about the game he wants to play than the rest do. In short he puts in more effort.

Paul "Bear" Bryant, the legendary coach of the Alabama football team used to say that luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. And so it is with the wiseguy. It is my mission to turn you all in to gambling wiseguys.
