That’s virtually impossible to calculate because you have to make decisions, and making the right or wrong ones will throw off the odds. However, playing Basic Strategy, the odds are pretty low.

It will depend on the rules at the table and what strategy you use. The best strategy for making money may not be the best strategy for winning the most hands in a row. For example, if you double down at the appropriate times you will win more money but fewer hands.

Given that your odds of winning any losing any given hand are always at least 52%, the best answer I can give is:

over 52% for 1 hand

over 27% for 2 hands

over 14% for 3 hands

over 7.3% for 4 hands

over 3.8% for 5 hands

over 1.9% for 6 hands

over 1.0% for 7 hands

over 0.53% for 8 hands

over 0.27% for 9 hands

over 0.14% for 10 hands

over 0.075% for 11 hands

over 0.039% for 12 hands

over 0.020% for 13 hands

over 0.010% for 14 hands

over 0.0054% for 15 hands

over 0.0028% for 16 hands

over 0.0014% for 17 hands

over 0.00077% for 18 hands

over 0.00040% for 19 hands

over 0.00020% for 20 hands

The odds beyond something around 7 hands are essentially meaningless since any error in the original 52% estimate is magnified so much.

You need to have a look at this site mate. It will give you all the information you need I use it for work.

All the other answers are wrong, I can give you the most true answer you will ever get. Here it is- you are either going to win or lose. Its that simple. You can do all the math and calculate the odds and try different stategies, but when it comes right down to it you win or you lose.

BlackJack is not easy game to win. the odds of you win in blackjack is 4 out of 10. which mean 35% of time you will win and 65% of the time you will lose. 20% to 50% of the time you go over 21 and the dealer hadnot show the hole card yet. The hole card is the dealer face down card.
