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. Once you know when to split, you will know how to double your chance of success just like that!
