Blackjack is not just a game; it is a skill. Many people assume that blackjack is all about lucky cards but it’s not. Start with these five tips on splitting and see how your game will improve:
If you have been dealt a 7 against the dealer’s card of equal or lower value, then split it. This will double your chance of success.
If your have been dealt a 2 or a 3 against the dealer’s 4, 5 or 6, then it’s also a good idea to always split it. Low cards do not necessarily mean the end of your game. You just need to play them right.
Consider the Golden Aces and 8’s Rule- Always split them, no matter what the dealer’s up card is.
When you have face cards, 10’s or 5’s, do not split them.
These are the golden rules on splitting...
Wouldn’t it be great if we could count cards fast enough to profit immensely and also not get caught. Unfortunately, for most of us, this is not the case. This is why, instead of counting cards when playing blackjack, we need to rely on different tips and tricks to ensure you get ahead (and stay ahead) of the dealer.
- First and foremost, when it comes to playing Blackjack, it’s all about you. Do not blame the other players at the table or the dealer for your poor luck.
- Furthermore, make sure you always set loss limits and win goals so you know when to quit.
- Look for a table that offers the fewest decks.
- When it comes to the dreaded 17 follow these rules: always stand on a hard 17 or higher; hit on a soft 17 if the dealer has 10; if the dealer has a 10, hit until you have 17 or higher.
