Rob's Super BlackJack v4.5.7 Description:
is a card game that is also a learning tool for both the beginner and advanced player. You'll learn basic strategy, card counting, and how to win more often.
All successful BlackJack systems are based on a basic strategy. For every possible hand and dealerís upcard combination there is only one best play for the player. Robís Super BlackJack comes with two basic strategies (single deck and Atlantic City). You can also enter and save your own basic strategies tailored to the house rules you wish to play under.
You can play a regular game of blackjack against the computer, or play in Training Mode, which teaches you basic strategy by forcing you to make the correct play. If you make a mistake the Wizard will pop up and tell you what the correct play is, and even offer explanations in some cases.
To really practice your basic strategy Robís Super BlackJack includes a Strategy Drill feature. The purpose of these drills is to test your playing decisions, not whether you win or lose. Strategy Drills will deal you all 540 possible play combinations.
Robís Super BlackJack also has a Flash Card feature that lets you practice card counting without playing out a hand. You can flip through the deck and try to keep an accurate count in your head. You can flip 1 to 4 cards at a time either manually, or automatically based on a time interval. You can display the correct Running Count and True (Deck) Count at any time.
Rob's Super BlackJack includes a variety of game options that let you fully customize the house rules, choose the number of decks (1 to 8), use the Tough Hands mode, adjust the play speed, choose the shuffle point, set table minimum and maximum table bets, and choose from six different card backs. The program keeps track of multiple players and their statistics.
The program includes Microsoft Agent, which installs the Wizard who coaches you throughout the game and even speaks.
