Imitating the Dealer as a Blackjack Strategy

One natural (no pun intended) way to play blackjack is to imitate the dealer. bjsim demonstrates how some natural thoughts are so very dangerous. The main problem with imitating the dealer is that when the player busts and the dealer busts, this is considered a dealer win and not a push. Since the dealer is forced to follow rules which will cause her to bust a considerable fraction of the time, it is in the player's best interest to let that happen and not also bust.
