Max Rubin’s book, Comp City, has several creative tips on how to maximize your casino rating and get a generous slice of this pie. He suggests that you look for full tables and play as slow as possible. The comp formulas most casinos use are based on hands per hour, and if you play fewer hands than the norm you are putting a lot less money at risk for the same gain in comp dollars. Also, you bet biggest when the pit boss or host is watching, especially when you first sit down and ask to get rated.

It doesn’t matter whether your cards are faceup or facedown, since the dealer has strict rules to follow and isn’t influenced by seeing the values of your cards. Her hand will always start off with one card exposed and one card hidden, regardless of the number of decks. 3. Betting Every table will have fixed minimum and maximum betting limits. On the felt in front of your chair is a betting circle or box. All bets have to be made before you receive your first two cards. You can change your bets from hand to hand, but you can never alter your wager once it is placed in the betting box.

Your next hand is a 13. The dealer now shows a 9 as her upcard. You choose to stand this time, thus making sure you are still alive at the end. Standing is signaled by waving over the top of your cards (in a faceup game) or tucking the cards under your chips (in a handheld game). Unfortunately, the dealer has a king in the hole and her 19 makes you a loser again. Trying to outguess the dealer like this is ultimately a losing proposition. Only by learning correct basic strategy can you have any realistic chance of moving from novice to expert.
