checkers (blots) bingo chip on a point are vulnerable to enemy attack and must
start over if hit by n opponent's checker. Two or more checkers on a
point are safe from attack and can also be bingo chip used for blocking or trapping
your opponent. Essentially backgammon is a race to see who takes
bingo chip off all
of his checkers first. However, the shortest distance between two bingo
is not always a straight line. Most beginners, rarely leave exposed
checkers and hit as often as they can. As you will find out, this
seemingly logical approach is not the best strategy. The following is a
simplification of bingo chip some of the factors that you should consider in
forming a winning game plan:
Do not use
the Clump Card Strategy described bingo chip in Chapter 7 in the handheld game; use
standard basic strategy as shown in Exhibit 2, chapter 3.
There are some differences bingo chip between the Las Vegas single- deck basic
strategy and the Las Vegas multi-beck bingo chip shoe strategy.
Refer to Exhibit 2 once again and bingo chip examine the basic strategy grid.
Notice that you double down on an 11 against bingo chip a dealer ace. This is
because of the greater chance of getting a 10 or face card in the single
–deck game. You will double down on an 8 – value hand of 6,
probabilities of the dealer breaking on these up-cards , as opposed to a
shoe game. For the same reason bingo chip you double down on a hand of A, 8 against
a dealer 6.
Notice that with a pair of 7s, you will stand against a dealer 10. This
is because , quite simply. You must assume bingo chip that the dealer has a 10 in
the hole and only thing that will save you is another 7. The odds are
astronomically high against your drawing that third 7 because two of
them are in your hand. So you stand bingo chip and hope for the best. If the game
allows bingo chip surrender , you would surrender this hand against a dealer 10
I became well
and truly hooked on the fascinating bingo chip game of backgammon three years ago.
So much so, I decided to incorporate another hobby, that bingo chip of web design,
with my passion for backgammon bingo chip and created Webb's Backgammon Site in
1999 which has since become quite popular. I continually update my
backgammon web site which offers five positional quizzes, tips for
beginners, annotated matches, links etc. I play most of my backgammon
online at Games Grid (Alan Webb) and just bingo chip can't get enough of the
fascinating and at times cruel game. I'm considering dipping bingo chip into the
world of tournament play this year sometime *gulp*. During a recent
exchange of views on the newsgroup, rec.games.backgammon, I was prompted
to write the following, which, Michael Crane and the MOST web bingo chip team
decided deserved a wider audience.
Buddies is a round blanket/ground cover/playmate that comes in 5' and 6'
diameters. The top has either a plush fleece or terry cloth surface with
a water-resistant nylon backing. The blanket is ideal for sitting upon
or playing on at the beach or on the grass for picnics and/or other
outings, but that's only half the story. A drawstring runs around the
perimeter and, when pulled, converts the blanket into a carryall,
perfect for lugging home wet clothes and towels, as well as a great deal
of the other detritus of a day out. Built-in mesh pockets provide
additional storage and are particularly useful for letting wet items dry
'Monte Carlo' analysis of Black Jack by www.supabets.com has revealed
that in the imaginary case of you ALWAYS having a hand of 18, the
surprising fact is that you would LOSE an average of about 65 cents for
every $100 you bet. 18 isn't such a great hand! Human psychology is what
makes us think the opposite - 18 is 'nearly 19', and 19, or course, is
'nearly 20'. An 18, in the subconscious mind, is therefore 'nearly 21'!!
What about 19? Can we regularly stand on 19 and win money in the long
run? 19 MUST be a winning hand! The answer is... Yes, except if the
dealer shows a 10 or Ace. If that is the case, your 19 will still cause
you to lose money in the long run. Hard to believe, huh? When you get up
to 20 you are basically in the money. This hand will make you money in
the long run whatever the dealer holds, even including an Ace. As 20 is
such a phenomenally strong hand, NEVER split it 10 (and likewise an
Ace 9 should never be doubled). It's a winning hand - and if it isn't
broke, don't fix it!
