Counting cards is not a substitute for Basic Strategy. It needs to be memorized. It's so easy to memorize, yet most dealers don't even know it. Before I sit down at any blackjack table, I look at the table rules and enter it into a basic strategy engine that will spit out the perfect way to play. Just google "Basic Strategy engine blackjack". Basic Strategy alone will decrease the house edge all the way down to less than 1%.

If you want to totally eliminate the house edge and actually make it favorable on your end, you gotta count cards. And even then, your advantage is very little. Even more problematic is your window of advantage is relatively small. That's why you see card counters betting $5 for a while, then increase their bets to something totally out of character like $200 a hand when the deck is loaded with tens and aces.

If anyone is serious about this, just google how to count cards. I promise you anyone with a 5th grade understanding of math can learn how to do this in a few hours or less. It's not that hard, nor as glamorous as people make it out to be.
