I used to only play table games, but haven't played them in a long while. I'm thinking about trying some blackjack again, possibly on my next trip. A couple questions - - I used to play based on basic strategy. Is that still the go to, and, is that what you generally see played at even the higher limit tables? Is there another preferred strategy I should look at? - Does anyone have any suggested betting progression strategies? I'd bet one unit until I won, then I would increase 50% for the next bet. If I won, I would bet 2 units and let it ride until I lost. It sucked if it was win one/ lose one kind of streak, and seemed to really take hours to really get up anything notable. I'm guessing my bet increases might be too conservative? Out of curiosity......the hand I hated most was me getting 12 against a dealer 2. I know mathematically you are supposed to hit, but I ALWAYS busted out. Do you hit your 12's???????? While playing, does it irk you if a player at the table doesn't hit their 12's against a 2?? Thanks for any input!!
