Shaun Deeb Presents: How to Win a Blackjack Tournament
While in Nassau for the 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, PokerNews and FantasyWired presenter Sasha Salinger caught up with Shaun Deeb to talk about…blackjack tournaments.
Hugely successful poker player, Deeb is not only a three-time World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) champ and World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner with combined winnings for $8,000,000, but he is also a well-known blackjack pro.
As he says in the video interview below, Deeb has been able to put together blackjack winnings for over $300,000 at UltimateBet alone, even if he doesn't advise anyone to play their games there.
"I won about $300,000 betting $500 a hand on a very shady site - Ultimate Bet. They were so shady that they thought I was cheating them. Maybe they had a flaw in their system; I don't know about that," Deep shared. "What I know, is that I won a lot of money. I obviously love blackjack."
How to Win a Blackjack Tournament
During the interview, Deeb also spoke about blackjack tournaments and explained that the difference between a regular game of blackjack and a tournament is similar to the one that exists between a poker cash game and a poker tournament.
"I did play a few blackjack tournaments online, and I think most of the blackjack tournament strategy has to do with the stack size," Deeb continued. "Position is very important too. What people don't often realize is that there are a lot of blackjack tournament professionals out there that try to find the biggest buy-in tournament and play against those who don't realize why tournaments are different."
Would You Double On a 14?
Say you have a 14 and your opponent has a 20. What do you do?
"You are basically banking on the dealer busting," says Deeb before he shares a priceless blackjack tournament strategy advice on how to survive (and use to your advantage) a tough hand of blackjack.
