[ English ]

Pontoon card counting is an advanced technique to win on chemin de fer. A player should first learn the basic strategies of twenty-one before picking up "counting". By picking up the technique of counting you might have the odds with you.

The basic concept of pontoon counting is that a deck loaded with 10s and aces will be to your advantage.

The dealer will only win within the other hand if he also receives a black jack. That’s why a deck packed with aces is always to the player’s advantage.
