Blackjack quiz (questions)

4 June 2000

Take this true/false blackjack quiz. You don't have any lifelines. You can't phone a friend or ask the audience, but you do have a 50/50 chance of getting each one correct.

1. Blackjack is more or less the same from one casino to the next. True or false.

2. It's possible to make a living playing blackjack. True or false.

3. The third base player can cause other players to lose if he makes a bad play. True or false.

4. Never hit a 12 against a dealer's 2 or 3 up card because you will invariably draw a 10 or picture card and bust. True or false.

5. I just lost 5 hands in a row so I'm due to win. True or false.

6. The object of blackjack is to get as close as possible to 21. True or false.

7. You will win 50 percent of the hands at blackjack. True or false.

8. The casino has the edge in blackjack because players go first and if they bust they automatically lose. True or false.

9. You will be dealt a blackjack hand about once in every 30 hands. True or false.

10. If you are dealt a blackjack hand and the dealer has an ace showing always take even money. True or false.

11. Always stand on all 17 and 18 hands, no matter what the dealer shows. True or false.

12. I can overcome the casino's edge in blackjack by using a progressive betting system. True or false.

13. The sole purpose of the new automatic shuffling machines that you see on some blackjack tables is to speed up play. True or false.

14. You should always slit pairs. True or false.

15. A basic strategy player will bust about 10 percent of the time. True or false.

16. The best way to learn basic strategy is practice with a deck of cards or use a software training program.

I'll post the answers to the quiz in two weeks.
