In any learning experience, mistakes go with the territory and the game of blackjack is no exception. Players who are serious about cutting the house edge learn basic strategy to eliminate most mistakes. However, those who are not so dedicated will keep making non-optimal plays and losing money.
Some mistakes crop up repeatedly and to some players, the wrong plays seem so right that they can’t convince themselves to play the basic strategy way.
Let’s take a look at six common yet costly plays, with detours to related errors. They may not be the costliest plays you can make, but the downside of hitting a hard 20 is a lot worse than the cost of the hands below. But no one makes that play so hopefully you won’t either!

As the world gradually returns to a recognizable and welcome form, vacation destinations around the country are bracing for a year’s worth of pent-up demand from travelers eager to have fun again. One of the country’s most beautiful locales, Coastal Mississippi, has put together a special campaign to attract visitors to its unique combination of beaches, world-class gaming, mouthwatering cuisine, and unparalleled outdoor adventure opportunities. The marketing campaign showcases the song “Gulf Coast Girl”, a recent hit by rising star Caroline Jones. The song features, among others, Jimmy Buffett, a Pascagoula native and lifelong ambassador for The Secret Coast and its laid-back lifestyle.
After more than a year hiatus, The Buffet at Beau Rivage is now open. Guests will find many of their Beau Rivage Buffet favorites on the menu, along with several new additions. The most noticeable change is in service style. Rather than self-service, all-you-can-eat food offerings are plated on Chinaware and served by Beau Rivage team members.
“We are thrilled to offer a redefined version of The Buffet, one of our guests’ favorite dining outlets, marking another milestone in fully reopening our property,” said MGM Southeast President and COO Travis Lunn. “Guests are certain to enjoy the abundance and variety they love about a traditional buffet, while appreciating the adjustments we have put in place to make them feel comfortable about the experience.”
