Being new to playing blackjack, I’m interested in your method for increasing the amount you bet per hand. I tend to use a cash management approach. If I start with $100 at a $5 minimum table, I’ll play $5/hand until I build my stack up to $140-$150. Only then will I start betting $10/hand. If I fall back to $100 or less, I’ll start play $5/hand again. I’m aware that I might be missing some “opportunities” based what cards have been played and what cards are left in the shoe. This method, I feel, allows me to play without the risk of losing too quickly. It may also keep me from the big wins. Your playing style is personal choice. I would like to hear what works for you.
