in counting cards, you add up card values to see what your odds are of getting a good hand. cards 2-6 have a value of +1, cards 7-9 have a value of 0, and 10-ace have a value of -1

Step 2: Adding the numbers

every time a card is layed down on the table, you add the number (either =1, 0, or -1) to all of the other numbers. try to bet when the card count is at higher than +3.

Step 3: Multiple decks

some dealers play with multiple decks in order to discourage card counters. however, if you know the number of decks, you divide the card count by the number, and that is the "true count"
