Poker vs. Blackjack
Published by admin on May 30, 2009
There are many players that choose to stick to one game and one game only. Of course that doesn’t mean that they would never play anything else but they much prefer one game over the other and they usually play their preferred choice unless circumstance make it impossible to do so.
Poker players and Blackjack players each prefer their own game for their own reasons but also like to dabble in the each others game ever once in a while. Be it in an online casino or a land based casino, poker and blackjack are very different games.
The rules of the games are completely different. In the most popular version of poker (texas hold’em) players are dealt two cards and they get to hold these cards through the game if they pay the price to stay in. They make the decision of when to fold and they lose their money to other players and win from other players as well.
In blackjack players receive two cards as well they can choose to stay, hit or split (on some occasions) and they are playing against the house (the casino) instead of playing against other players.
All in all the games are very different and sometimes when they players sway away from their game and try another game they do not consider all the elements that are tied to that particular game. That is why the expression “stick to what you know” applies very well here.
Poker and online blackjack are both games that have an element of luck so if you are feeling lucky than perhaps you can be a champion at either game!
