I’m sure a lot of you are familiar with the game of Blackjack and how to play it. Couldn’t be simpler I hear you cry, just get as close to 21 and beat the dealer in the process. Correct. Simple. Or is it?

The game consists of four fictitious horses that are about to race over a grid that has 32 positions. Cards are drawn in every round and their numerical value i.e. a 2 is worth 2 spaces, a picture card is worth 10 and an ace is worth 11, is how far the horse moves along the grid.

We start by having 12 cards. These start with a 2 being the lowest and then working their way up through the ranks reaching the highest card which is an Ace. At the start of the game the “start” card is the first card which is revealed.

Hopefully you will have read my article relating to understanding the concept of value and how we can use this to our advantage when playing the Betfair Games. Today dear reader we go through the complex world of staking plans and how to obtain a better understanding of our betting banks.

Poker is becoming increasingly popular and hundreds of sites are out there offering on-line tournaments and advice on how to win. Personally I don’t think you can beat the real thing, face to face with your opponents.
