Life Lessons Blackjack Taught Me
Mr Blackjack looks back at his blackjack career and shares with you some of the life lessons the casino game has taught him over the years.
- Hi players, thank you for watching this Blackjack Academy video series. We've started out from the absolute basics of blackjack, and over this video series, explored all the skills, strategy, and smarts required to beat the casinos blackjack. Now is the time to go out there and start training these skills. I said at the beginning of this series that blackjack is the best card game to learn because it will always have something new to teach you.
In many ways, blackjack is just like life. You can't always predict the next card that will come out of the deck, and life will always throw something at you that you don't expect. It's important to make good calculated decisions when faced with the unexpected. You will experience the highs that come with going on a nine hand win streak, and the lows when you split and double, and the dealer pulls a crushing six card 21.
It's how you deal with it that will build your character and your bankroll in the long run. The best part about all this is that there is another hand coming right up to give you another shot. Thanks again for joining me throughout this whole process. It's been an honor hosting the series and sharing this game I love with you. Please, continue to send in any questions you have, and share your successes on social media with online gambling.com and never split tens. I look forward to hearing from you. And remember, until next time, may all your doubles bring tens and the math always be on your side
