What is first basing?


Well-known member
First-basing in blackjack is a technique where a player is able to spot the dealer's hole card from the first base position after the dealer checks beneath his up-card for a blackjack. It involves peeking at the card as the dealer checks it to see if they have a blackjack. By knowing the value of the dealer's hole card, a player can adjust their betting and playing strategy accordingly to increase their chances of winning. It should be noted that first-basing is considered cheating in casinos and is illegal.
