Basic stategy is a scam and you won't win over the long haul by using it. Counting cards is another hoax that rarely ever gives a player even a 1% better chance at winning a hand.
Ever notice that a new player always wins their first few hands. I was in Vegas 2 years ago and sat down at an empty blackjack table. 4 of my first 5 hands were blackjacks. But then they methodically took all my money after that. You're at the mercy of the cards and the PROGRAMMED auto card shuffler.
