Blackjack books.

Below I've included some reading suggestions for anyone looking to get into Blackjack, and possibly card counting. With the exception of two revised editions (containing additional material) I've read all of these myself, and they come with my recommendation.

Cover of Blackbelt in Blackjack.

Blackbelt in Blackjack: Arnold Snyder
An excellent reference for anyone starting out playing Blackjack. Includes his Red Seven count together with a more advanced one. Lot's of useful "non-technical" stuff as well.




Cover of Basic Blackjack.

Basic Blackjack: Stanford Wong
A first port of call for all budding Blackjack players. Includes explanations of basic strategy options and common rule variations.





Cover of Professional Blackjack.

Professional Blackjack: Stanford Wong
Wong's follow up that takes the reader into the area of card counting using the Hi-Lo and Wong halves systems. Chapter seven addresses "no hole card" games. Contains lots of tables of data to help you understand the underlying dynamics of the game.



Cover of the Theory of Blackjack.

The Theory of Blackjack: Peter Griffin
A detailed and extensive insight into the underlying dynamics and maths of the game by the late Peter Griffin. Very heavy on the maths, although much of the analysis relates to single deck games that we don't have in the UK. One for the numbers buffs.



Cover of Blackjack Attack.

Blackjack Attack: Donald Schlesineger
A collection of his writings that appeared in the Blackjack Forum publication over many years. Contains insights into the game, together with a myriad of useful tables of data to use in analysing the game yourself. This is the third edition (I own the first).


Cover of Blackjack Bluebook II.

Blackjack Bluebook II: Fred Renzey
Covers all aspects of the game from starting out with basic strategy to counting cards with his KISS-3 counting system. Also a useful chapter (number six) on what comes after basic strategy but before card counting. A single book that can take someone from novice to expert player.


Cover of Modern Blackjack.

Modern Blackjack: Norm Wattenberger
A revised edition of his book which has had an additional 120 pages added to the edition available free online. An extensive and highly acclaimed study of all aspects of the game of Blackjack. More info can be found here.



Read and enjoy!
