The dealer at the blackjack table reshuffles the shoe(6 decks) every about 3 hands or so. Therefore with around 5 to 6 players play that would certainly be around 40 cards or so played only before reshuffling.

You are watching: How many decks in blackjack shoe

Is this standard? This is in contrast to some videos by which the dealer just reshuffles after maybe about 3 full decks right into the shoe.

How large an edge will certainly the home get versus card counters if the shuffles more frequently than usual?

Edit : it to be a continuous shuffling machine with 2 dealers

That is simply ridiculous. Great penetration because that counting is 75% or more. 1 deck penetration would median that you're no playing blackjack, you're play 'watch the sweat joint practice their shuffling skills'.

Never viewed that. Because that 6 decks normal penetration is about 4.5 decks in

Are friend talking around a continuous shuffle machine? Shuffling after only one deck has actually been dealt would certainly not be very time effective and also probably too quick also for an automatic shuffling machine (sometimes play heads up i beat the maker and it is no ready even after ns play whole shoe). It is normal for the dealer to refeed the device after this plenty of cards has actually been dealt the end of a CSM and also you should not be gambling on CSM games.

You're right, it was a CSM. A one 2 6 shuffler iirc. Any type of other reasons why not to play against a CSM? Thanks
